After Us Review (PS5)

After Us offers a glimpse of our future and a warning of things to come.

A gaming experience where you engage in thoughtful introspection, wordless encounters, and some platforming across Earth's many diverse locations to undo the devastation caused by global warming sounds like an intriguing idea on paper.

Redfall is Arkane's Worst Game Ever

It's also the worst "AAA" developed title in recent memory.

It was a struggle to finish Redfall. It was an absolute struggle thanks to performance issues, technical deficiencies, crashes, broken A.I., and uninspired quest design. It was the antithesis of fun and I pushed myself to complete the game out of pure spite.

Prior to playing Redfall, I saw Arkane as a studio that could do no wrong when it comes to their output. Dark Messiah of Might and Magic in 2006...

Cloud gaming. Cloud gaming is the reason why the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK voted to block the $69 billion deal that would see Microsoft taking over Activision Blizzard.

The decision didn't come down to concerns over Call of Duty exclusivity or anything that would make some measure of sense. No, it came down to the CMA being concerned that the deal would "undermine new and innovative" competition...

    Xbox Backtracks on Sharing Media to Twitter Removal

    The complaints have been heard.

    Some weeks back, newer Insider builds for the Xbox consoles removed the ability to share screenshots and clips directly to Twitter. The only way you would be able to post to Twitter, would have been to first upload the screenshots to the Xbox app on your phone and then send out the Tweets from that.

    Why was this feature removed in the first place? It's not really clear. All that was clear was that users were not happy about this change....

Some variables, such as the need to buy food or pay utility bills, of course, may not be present in the virtual economy. Even the most fantasy worlds have a few things in common with the real world: people can own things and can usually sell them as well.

    In more popular games, some people begin to crave virtual items as much as real ones. This very real demand is...
