    Snow Crash is great for its intriguing themes and sci if setting though not very character based, I was thinking about picking up his book Diamond Age too, and maybe some of George RR Martin’s sci if books.

    Book Club

    I’ve bought a lot of books in recent years but haven’t given myself enough time to read ‘em beyoned a Bowie biography called The Next Day. After playing a bit of Cyberpunk I finally decided to get started on Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash.

    Your top showings from the PS5 reveal event

    As I understand it, From Soft aren’t involved, Blue Point and Studio Japan are doing this remake so let’s hope they can match the design and combat philos of From. I hope they do have some of the game designers to oversee things at least.
