Roguelites have grown plentiful in the nine years between the first Rogue Legacy and its recently released sequel. Thankfully, Rogue Legacy 2 has lived up to the high standard set by the original, and cut through the roguelite noise by offering pure chaos. Perhaps the most challenging aspect of Rogue Legacy 2’s chaos is to accept how rare those “perfect” runs truly are. The beauty of Rogue Legacy 2 is how it harnesses randomness and unleashes it in brilliantly balanced bursts. I’m 30 hours into Rogue Legacy 2, and I’m still discovering new toys to play with.

That changes with Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. Announced during Games Workshops' annual Skulls showcase event, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader will be the first CRPG set in the company's expansive universe. The Rogue Trader name comes from the first edition of the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop game released in 1987. The idea of a Divinity: Original Sin-style game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe is certainly an enticing one for fans. With the excellent Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters proving popular and Space Marine 2 on the horizon, the franchise's grimdark future looks promising.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection marks the series’ debut on PlayStation 5, bringing to Sony’s newest console the two most recent (and arguably, the two best) entries in the franchise: 2016’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and 2017’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The Legacy of Thieves Collection, though, marks the first time that any Uncharted game has been playable at a frame rate target of 120 fps. All of this is to say nothing of the usability improvements in the Legacy of Thieves Collection. The Legacy of Thieves Collection can import them natively; you just need to have them stored on your PS5. Both newcomers and longtime fans will find a lot to appreciate in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, although they won’t find the original games’ serviceable multiplayer component (an omission I don’t mind one bit).
