Spider-Man: Miles Morales Confirmed for PS4 September 16, 2020

Sony and Insomniac Games have confirmed shortly after wrapping today’s PS5 event that Spider-Man: Miles Morales, my most anticipated PlayStation Exclusive title, will be coming to the PS4 on top of the PS5.

So how will this work? Well, PS4 owners will be able to pick up a PS4 copy of the game from their local retailer at launch. They can then, if they decide to buy a PS5, use it on the PS5 with some enhanced graphics, effects and visual fidelity. The game is expected to retail for a price of around $50 US. The PS4 copy will also play fine in a PS4 Pro.

Prospective PS5-buyers who do not own a PS4 or a copy of the original can buy a premium PS5 copy of Spider-Man: Miles Morales with all the bells and whistles you’ve seen in all of the game’s previews. A special edition of the PS5 game will also be released with an improved version of the previous Spider-Man game for PS5. It’ll come with new skins, new trophies, and new photo mode features. That two-game bundle should retail for $80 US.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is coming to the PS4 AND the PS5 November 2020.

iOS and iPadOS 14 Released September 16, 2020

Apple has just released an enormous update bringing everything from widgets to improved Apple Pencil support (on iPad). The new version, iOS and iPadOS 14, is compatible with recent Apple devices going as far back as at least the iPhone 7.

To install the new update, it can be downloaded through your device’s software update feature (in the settings app) or through iTunes. Just be aware you’re going to need to free up a LOT of space. We clocked this one in at around 2.5GB, and that’s even if you already have the most recent OS previously installed.

Yesterday I made a proclamation not to upgrade if you play Pokémon Go. If you do, you can upgrade now, the issue with the app running on 14 has been fixed. Just make sure to update your Pokémon Go app to its latest version before or after upgrading iOS or iPadOS 14.

We are going back to tabletop this morning. New Dungeons & Dragons players should know that it’s a good idea to have their own dice when they play the game with their friends. However, it’s not a good idea to just have loose dice, they can easily get lost or damaged. Instead, it’s a good idea to (obviously) keep your dice in a bag.

But what kind of dice bags are out there and what kind of bag is right for you? We have some examples of the different kinds of dice bags you can find in hobby shops and online. Some of these things you can find anywhere, some are pretty rare and very well may be one of a kind. Let’s take a look. Enjoy this video shot in glorious 4K.
