An incremental but important iOS update has been released for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch devices earlier today. The new update includes (on top of the usual bug fixes) the ability to add hardware keys to Apple ID.

The update weighs in at around 750MB. A similar update has been released for the Mac but there does not appear to be an Apple TV update at this time.

Mind of Maniac – Is This The End of Marvel’s Interconnected Gamerverse? January 23, 2023

The movie world has never seen anything like the enduring Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). With dozens of phenomenal films and television shows released since 2008, the MCU has become a gold standard for how to produce an interconnected feature. Following the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4, Marvel hinted that their games MAY have been continuing that trend with the upcoming release of Marvel’s Avengers.

Marvel’s Avengers went on to be a well-documented disappointment, and since it’s release it appears that the games have since splintered into their own non-connected continuities. But was that always the plan?

As someone who has played these games I can say I found plenty of winks and nods throughout the games of events that took place in other ones. The evidence showed that Marvel was indeed planning to have these games exist in a shared continuity. However, following the disappointment of Avengers, that seems to have changed. So what made us think they were interconnected and why do we think that continuity has broken? Please enjoy the video below to find out!

Marvel’s Avengers is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Marvel’s Iron Man VR is out now for PSVR, Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is out now for PS4, PS5 and PC.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
