James Davenport, Editor: I think a Star Wars flavored game about collecting different colors of Stormtrooper armor would be great. Warp the shape a bit, make the eye slots bigger, maybe even smaller. Half of my interest in Star Wars is purely visual, anchored to cool space people in cool space outfits. Give me a gun, put me behind cover, and let me dress nice. Do what The Division could never do and get me invested in my little guy beyond what kinda numbers they're packing. The Division 2 is gorgeous and feels great in the hands, but it's a truly shit fiction wrapped in faded jeans and tactical vests with 100 pockets. Nothing about it is cool.

This is what we'll be using to get charged, because Orbs are incredibly easy to create with multikills from Masterworked weapons.

Sony's unprecedented decision - I've never seen anything like this - comes after a horrendous launch for Cyberpunk 2077 on last-gen machines. It's been a game experience plagued by woeful performance and a procession of bugs - something the new machines' power copes much better with, though no version is without problems. … [Read more...] about Sony pulls Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store, offers refunds
The KEEP is something I actually saw last year, but I still think about it every day. The Keep Smart Storage may look like a clock, but it's actually a safe to store your weed, and I guess other medication, but mostly weed. KEEP would have been perfect for me back in college when I thought a chin-goatee and boot-cut jeans with sneakers was a good look. … [Read more...] about Somehow only one of these funny looking CES gadgets is a sex toy
