Better Call Saul would make a great game – why hasn’t it happened?
Game adaptations don’t have to be terrible. But as creator Vince Gilligan admits, bringing action from screen to console isn’t as easy as it soundsDon’t get Pushing Buttons delivered to your inbox? Sign up hereWelcome back to Pushing Buttons! This issue is going out on my birthday. Presents would be nice, but what I actually want is a week off to finally play Elden Ring. Only slightly more importantly, today is also when the finale of Better Call Saul airs in the UK, closing out a story that began with Breaking Bad’s first TV episodes in 2008. I will really miss this series – there is nothing in television quite like creator Vince Gilligan’s sumptuous shots and tight dark-comedic writing. I’ve often wondered why there’s been no Breaking Bad video game – especially because Netflix has shown a great deal of interest in the games, from buying studios to bankrolling endless TV adaptations. (Side note: did you know that Netflix subscribers get access to 24 mostly excellent games for free, including the sci-fi masterpiece Into the Breach? I didn’t, until last week.)I would have expected some drug-empire management game, maybe spliced with scenes from the show, or with scene-setting and dialogue from its writers. Or perhaps an interactive-movie tie-in along the lines of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, where your reactions send the story spinning off in different directions. It would be expensive, sure, but Netflix has never minded spending money.Microsoft stopped disclosing sales figures for Xbox consoles long ago, but early in the PlayStation 4/Xbox One era it was fairly clear that the PS4 was streets ahead. It comes as no surprise, then, to learn that the PS4 outsold the Xbox One by more than two to one, as revealed by court documents. Is it any wonder that Microsoft prefers to frame the console wars on its own terms and talk about Game Pass subscribers and engagement instead?The Pokémon world championships are in London this week for the first time. The tournaments will be live-streamed, but Pokémon fans can also pay £10 to go and spectate. I went to this tournament in Washington in 2014 and it’s one of the most wholesome video game events I’ve ever been to – I especially loved all the millennial parents proudly watching their little kids compete.Lastly, enjoy this footage of a game in which you are a squirrel with a gun, which quite deservedly blew up on Twitter over the weekend.

From Signal to Decay Volume 1 – review: An exhibition that sings to itself
Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, LondonUsing ambient, dubby noise as well as drawings and video art, Trevor Mathison’s engrossing show ‘plays’ the echoing spaces of the galleryThere’s a rumble in the gallery, rising through the building. Sliding in and out of one another, cycles of white noise and hiss come and go, along with a deeper, sonorous note, sometimes quickening with a quiet pulse or jolting with staccato beats. A distant door slams with a bark, and dubs into delayed echo, and a metal ladder clatters and screeches on a concrete floor. Or is this a real door shutting somewhere in the building, and someone shifting a ladder in a distant room? Who knows how long I’ll have to wait for the sound to come round again, if it ever does, in Trevor Mathison’s audio installation From Signal to Decay: Volume 1, at the Goldsmiths CCA. There goes that door again.A founding member of Black Audio Film Collective during the 1980s, Mathison has gone on to design the sound for numerous films, including several for fellow BAFC member John Akomfrah. Who is to say where the music begins and ends as it reverberates through the building, changing as we walk around Mathison’s exhibition? Mathison says he’s playing the building back to itself. The sounds creep down corridors and rise through the often under-utilised double height central gallery into the floor above. It shifts as we turn a corner, finding its own boundaries and edges as it meets other sounds from other speakers in the gallery’s spaces. The noise of the New Cross Road, with its dopplering sirens and grinding traffic, is fed straight from a microphone on the street along a corridor, and a muted orchestra joins the mix from a pair of speakers mounted next to a single-channel video in the next room. The silent film shows grey sea and sky, rain at a window, swell on the water, shining droplets on the camera lens, lowering clouds, Scottish weather moving in. Continue reading...
