The Revamped PS Plus Lineup Is Stacked, Once You Make Sense Of It

With the big PS Plus relaunch on the horizon (get your Zero Dawn jokes out of here), we finally have an idea of what exactly to expect. Today, in a blog post, Sony outlined everything—games, streaming offerings, a partnership with Ubisoft—coming to the service. It’s a lot. Let’s break it down. PS Plus 2.0, first officially announced in March, is a total revamp of the long-running PS Plus service, essentially folding all of PlayStation’s disparate subscriptions into one. It’s available in three tiers, which you can read more about right here, but the general breakdown is:Though the option to play…

The completion of a From Software game can be a strange time, the initial elation of victory fading…

The Elder Scrolls 6 should have the charm of Oblivion, not just the scale of Skyrim

Bethesda’s long-running fantasy RPG series should allow itself to be sillier – and more colourful! – moving forward. By Azura, is The Elder Scrolls 6 far away! With Starfield set to arrive near the end of the year, the sixth main entry in Bethesda’s iconic saga might as well not exist right now. Of course, we’re not short on massive open worlds – especially now that SSDs are taking over and rewriting what can be done when it comes to level design – but you just can’t fill that Skyrim-shaped hole, can you? What makes The Elder Scrolls so captivating?…

Dragon’s Dogma is the perfect game to play before Elden Ring

Playing Capcom’s most underrated action RPG might help us better understand (and wait for) From Software’s newest. It’s wild to think Elden Ring is almost here. With hype reaching all-time highs and diehard FromSoft fanatics crawling up the walls in anticipation, it might be time to consider revisiting (or trying out for the first time) an overlooked game that could help us better understand the Lands Between. Dragon’s Dogma, initially released back in 2012, was jointly directed by Devil May Cry veteran Hideaki Itsuno and Monster Hunter’s Kento Kinoshita, and it shows: there was a really strong focus on hack-and-slash…

It’s easy to look back at the PS3 as something that was always a terrific game console, but it didn’t start that way. I remember sitting in the audience at…
