Deathloop

Please be aware that while I’m not going to spoil the ending here, I am going to talk about how I felt about it. You have been warned. Also watch the video, I’m not repeating anything from it.

NBA 2K21

I’ve been playing NBA 2K for many years now, and it’s actually where my love of basketball originated. So, I loved the short time I had to play NBA 2K21 on the PS5. But before we continue, I realized it’s practically impossible to infer inflection in a written review, so let me say that one more time. I loooooooved the short time I had to play NBA2K21 on the PS5!!! The sad reality is any noticeabl...

Nor is it disappointing – not even in the slightest! I want to touch upon the bits I didn’t quite manage ...

Here it is, in all its beautiful glory: Other than the reveal, the only new thing we really learned about the PS5 is that there will be two versions: one with a disc-drive and a digital-only version. Personally, I think this is a great idea. Maybe the digi...
