Sackboy: A Big Adventure is the perfect PlayStation game for the holidays

One of my first PlayStation 3 games was Little big planet (LBP). With its adorable sense of charm and remarkably robust level creation tools, my friends and I were enthralled by the game, and its 2011 sequel, for hours on end. With the franchise inactive since 2014 LittleBigPlanet 3I admit I haven't given much thought to LBP lately, until now, that is. Come in comes Sackboy: a great adventure, a derivative of LBP PlayStation 5 series and launch title starring the adorable titular cloth creature from the original games.However, this time around, the franchise is switching to a 3D platformer in the vein of Super Mario 3D World while removing user-generated content from the LBP games. But while Sackboy loses a bit of his identity in this change of direction, I'm happy to say that the...

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla moves the series forward and slows it down at the same time

I've always had an interesting relationship with him Assassin's creed Serie. When a new game in the franchise is announced, I often get very excited, especially when the historical setting is particularly appealing to my liking. Most of the time, this gets me caught up in the pre-launch hype, only to finally be disappointed when I get my hands on the game. For example, recall the large-scale battles in the pre-release trailers for Assassin's Creed III? Those technically didn't appear in the franchise until Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Although I was surprised by how much fun I had during my time with Odyssey, his description of ancient Greece never really connected with me. This was partly because I had never been so interested in ancient Greece. On the other hand, Valhalla It is in m...

Complicated emulation solution allows PlayStation 2 games to run on Xbox Series X / S

In an interesting turn of events, Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Series S are capable of something the PlayStation 5 is not: running classic PlayStation 2 games via emulation. Unsurprisingly, this solution is not something Microsoft is officially endorsing and, at least from what I can tell, it seems pretty complicated. The consoles 'Developer Mode' software must first be installed through a Universal Windows App (UWA). A registration fee of $ 19 USD (approximately $ 24 CAD) is also required to be part of the Microsoft Developer program to access the application. Next, RetroArch, known software capable of emulating various retro consoles on various devices, must be installed on Xbox Series X / S. The PS2 emulation part of this application, PCSX2, is still under development and repo...
