And before we get ahead of ourselves, while the PS5 will support NVMe drives as expandable storage, neither of these drives will be compatible with Sony's new console. They do not reach the performance levels required, so don't pick up one now thinking you'll be able to give yourself a storage boost from day one. Instead, you'll need to wait for the new NVMe drives to be released or for Sony to announce a list of compatible hardware. Would be nice if they got round to announcing PS5 pre-order info first, though. Maybe tomorrow? … [Read more...] about This Western Digital 500GB NVMe SSD is down to £70

The basic EA Play membership (the service formerly known as Origin Access) isn’t nearly as good as Microsoft’s PC offering, not putting most new games on until they’re not-so-new, but it has some solid older games. Have a look at EA’s list of PC games on the service and you’ll see some good’uns from series like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fifa, Madden, Dead Space, and Mirror’s Edge. It does also offer ten-hour trials of new games before they launch too, and the latest annual sequels usually only take a few months to come over. … [Read more...] about Xbox Game Pass will soon include EA Play membership too
Dropped off off the coast of Falmouth, you’re tasked with learning what happened to the entire crew of the ill-fated Obra Dinn merchant ship, which mysteriously drifted ashore with heavy damage and no crew. Playing as an insurance investigator for the East India Company isn’t exactly the most delicious or exciting prospect, but your magic pocket watch brings things into sharper focus. It allows you to see the exact moment a person died, letting you use contextual clues and the scene of the crime to deduce the identity and fate of each individual, recorded in your diary. … [Read more...] about Have you played… Return Of The Obra Dinn?
Wes Fenlon: Taking a slightly different approach to this question—if I could only play games from one specific console, I think I'd go with the PlayStation 2. Its library was just immense, full of games from Japanese developers across a wide range of budgets and styles, and because it was the dominant console of the generation, every cross-platform game was guaranteed to be on the PS2. 3D gaming was in its ugly duckling phase on the N64 and PS1, but generally looked and played much better by the early 2000s. Many PS2 games are still rough by today's standards, but there's also charm in that, and a tendency for quirky ideas to blossom into entire games that wouldn't get made today because they're too expensive. I'd definitely miss the availability of indie games and today's triple-A blockbusters, but I think the PS2 and its full library would keep me busy for a long time. That's my desert island pick. … [Read more...] about If you could only play console games, which console would you choose?
