This review contains full spoilers for episodes one and two of Obi-Wan Kenobi, now available to view on Disney+. Star Wars has often explored the burden of emotion and its complicated relationship with the Jedi. For Anakin, it led to the dark side. For Luke, it saw him abandon his duty. And in Disney Plus’ new Obi-Wan Kenobi show, we see Ewan McGregor shoulder the devastating toll of living through multiple nightmares. The two-part premiere opens a series that is surprisingly complex and unexpectedly mature; a slice of Star Wars that feels heavy and layered. It still comes with the…

Kao the Kangaroo reminded me why I fell in love with 3D platformers back in the N64 days. While I missed the Dreamcast console-exclusive original back in the day, it surprised me how familiar this reboot of the 22-year-old series felt, though the revived Kao doesn’t exactly try hiding how it’s looked to other modern platformers to create a highly derivative comfort-food experience. It’s a lot of fun, colorful, and certainly rather nostalgic; just don’t come in expecting a Crash Bandicoot 4-level challenge. Stories of heroes rescuing loved ones against the odds is nothing new in this genre, so suffice…

Billions of individuals around the world access the internet each and every day through internet service providers (ISPs). These ISPs have created partnerships and developed the infrastructure to power access to the internet around the world. To access the internet, regardless of what equipment an individual may have, it requires a connection through an ISP. The ISP provides the necessary connectivity and bandwidth in which to interact with the internet. Without it, even a fully decentralized Web3 internet would be inaccessible. How Do ISPs Work? At a fundamental level, ISPs serve as major data movers by offering access through different…

Yesterday was supposed to be the launch of Studio 369’s first virtual reality (VR) title, the promising World of Mechs. But due to the US suffering from another school shooting, the World of Mechs team has decided to delay the launch out of respect. In a statement, the team said: “We are shocked and saddened at the shooting tragedy that occurred on Tuesday in Uvalde, TX. Out of respect during this sensitive time, Studio 369 will delay this week’s release of World of Mechs with a new release date to be determined shortly.” This statement has been followed up with…

In news that will make any Nazi with a nutsack feel nervous, the serial scrotum-sniping soldier, Karl Fairburne, is back on the hunt. Sniper Elite 5 shifts the series’ established blend of espionage and X-rayed executions to 1944 France, taking Fairburne deep behind enemy lines into another collection of surprisingly large-scale stealth sandboxes. Yet while welcome enhancements to controls, weapon customisation, and multiplayer features make Sniper Elite 5 by far and away the most flexible entry in the series to date, another forgettable story and some heavily recycled mission objectives made it seem more like sniper repeat than sniper elite…

At first, Apex Legends Mobile seems like an ill-proposed idea. After all, Apex on the Nintendo Switch didn’t work out as well as we’d all hoped, and it’s a struggle to properly experience the best parts of Respawn’s battle royale on that platform due to the lack of horsepower. However, Apex Legends Mobile is not a direct port of Apex Legends; instead, it is its own standalone experience that is extremely polished and well optimized for iOS and Android. I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying my time playing on my tiny screens — and that’s coming from someone…

The following contains full spoilers for This Is Us Season 6, which wrapped up on May 24 on NBC.Tasked with wrapping up some of the show’s most emotionally charged stories, the final season of This Is Us — the non-linear NBC family melodrama — takes a winding and unconventional approach, but one that feels perfectly in tune with the series. The plot, essentially, concludes about two-thirds of the way through the final block of 18 episodes, paving the way for a fantastic run of focused, cathartic chapters that proved, week after week, why the show is so beloved. When things…
