They also makes it easy to stop playing on one PS4 and pick up right where you left off on another. But PS4 cloud saves have a bizarre 1,000-file cap, and no one’s really sure why it exists.

Twitter user Dizzy_Ziddy ran into this problem just this week while trying to...

Bethesda has patched the recent ports of Doom I and II so that they no longer ask you to login to Bethesda.net. When the games first arrived in late July they prevented you from playing unless you had a Bethesda.net account, which was extremely annoying, but also good for some laughs .

Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is out this week on Steam and worth checking out, especially for anyone who loves great music and moody, PS2-era JRPG vibes. Kotaku’s Heather Alexandra loved the game when it was in Early Access and I’ve been having a similarly splendid time with the full release.
