ps4 update 5.00

The PS4 is the most dominant of the current generation of game consoles, and it's about to get even better thanks to the upcoming rollout of system update 5.00. In addition to the earlier leaked news of 1080p, 60fps streaming to Twitch for PS4 Pro users, the new update will also include new options for Playstation VR, managing your friends list, and tweaks to notifications and menu prompts.

‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’ review: The sequel you didn’t know you needed

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy review

Nine years after the original Uncharted took the PS3 by storm, Naughty Dog finally brought the story to its conclusion with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in 2016. It was not only the best game in the series, but also my favorite game of 2016. It was also a rare final chapter that left me completely satisfied -- I was not dying to find out what happened next. I was content that Nathan Drake's story had come to an end.

But Nathan Drake was just one character in the Uncharted universe. In fact, he wasn't even the most interesting character in the Uncharted universe, which is why a spinoff starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross -- a former love interest and a former foe of Drake, respectively -- manages to serve as the perfect epilogue to the franchise without overstaying its welcome or stepping on any toes.

Fortnite poisons a potentially great game with agonizing F2P limits

Enlarge / At its best, Fortnite looks (and feels) like this nicely staged promo pic of in-game action. However, so many free-to-play annoyances drag this "build a base, blast some zombies" potential to the unseemly depths. (credit: Epic Games)

Fortnite comes very close to standing out from the crowded online-shooter fray. Some video games let you hunker down with friends and shoot a zillion oncoming zombies. Other games let you build a giant, personalized fortress. What if a single game let you do both—and made the fort-building stuff a cinch? (Basically, a particularly smooth gaming combo of peanut butter and chocolate.)

To test that attractive sales pitch, I have racked up about a week of on-and-off Fortnite testing, spread over the two weeks since the game launched in a peculiar "paid early access" manner. With that much time, I've confirmed that Fortnite includes a darned good synergy of those game ideas, backed by robust game mechanics, incredible art design, and a base-building system that really finds a good balance between simplicity and depth.

Trouble is, I've also struggled to have fun with the results thus far. While Epic has declared that this is an "early access" game for the foreseeable future, whose elements are subject to change, I'm concerned that Fortnite's root issue can't be so easily patched: the poisonous real-money economics stirred into the gameplay pot.
