    Trophy hunters will already be familiar with the work of Ratalaika Games, no doubt.

  • News HBO Max Streams to PS5 from Today

    Only available in the US

    It was one of the streaming services missing from our All PS5 Apps list at launch, but now HBO Max has been added to the PlayStation 5’s roster of on-demand video services.

    The NFC East of sports sims

    It’s hard to find any optimism in the Madden NFL 21 community, but a few football fans with a glass half-full of Gatorade had hoped that this year’s PlayStation 4 game was so disappointing because EA Sports was all-in on the next-gen upgrade.
