13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim from Vanillaware might just be the best time-travel game in 25 years.
“If you’re looking for challenging real-time strategy, 13 Sentinels‘ straightforward action probably won’t rock your socks off. But fans of point-and-click adventures and visual novels will find a lot to chew on here, even if the overall balance between the two main lobes of the game feels a bit lopsided. Vanillaware’s latest is a true masterclass in galaxy-brain sci-fi storytelling that will keep you up well past your bedtime.”

“If you had the privilege of going to Baby Grand during Joey’s reign, you’ll know it was one of the most fun bars in the city… and potentially the most COVID-friendly (meaning, bad). Up to 40 patrons would pack the 240sqft space to belt out old standards from Dean Martin and System of a Down.”
Microsoft is hoping to put on market a new, non-subscription-based version of its Office Suite in 2021.
“Subscriptions may be ideal for certain services such as Netflix, with its constant flow of new content, but for a suite of tools like Microsoft Office? Paying every month doesn’t suit everyone, especially if all they want is access to the word processor and spreadsheet. Thankfully, a new perpetual license edition of the suite arrives next year.”
