Making old-school new again (again) with Operencia: The Stolen Sun

But if we’ve done our job well with Operencia: The Stolen Sun — and as we…

Soapbox: All I Want the PS5 to Do Is Track My Play Time Across Games

Liam wants the stats. I, surely amongst others, really enjoy tracking how much time I’ve sunk into a video game. From the grand looter shooters of Destiny 2 and The Division 2 through to huge RPGs such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, I always like to take note how of many hours I’ve played them for.

Reaction: PS5's Been Designed to Solve All Your PS4 Pet Peeves

Fixing the future. Isn’t it funny how fast we forget? The PlayStation 4 felt like a revolution after almost a decade of PlayStation 3’s unwieldy game installs and barely functional PlayStation Store, but Sony’s current-gen console is considered tedious by contemporary standards. Huge patches, update copying, and a flaky operating system have all contributed to the PS4 feeling a little long in the tooth. The exciting thing is that the more we learn about the PS5, the more it sounds like it’s been designed with all our gripes in mind. At the forefront of that is the PS5’s SSD, of course, which will not only enable developers to build bigger and better worlds – but will also get you into games faster than ever before. As architect Mark Cerny elaborated…
