The Last of Us Part One: Sony justifies the 80€
The Last of Us Part I is Naughty Dog’s next project. The studio, probably one of the most popular with Rockstar, Insomniac Games and Sony Santa Monica, came out of its silence just over a month after its last speech, during the Summer Game Fest last June. The immediate focus of the studio is the remake, which was not badly criticized when it was announced. Indeed, there are few visible differences between the work of 2013 and the remake promised for September 2022 on PS5 and later on PC, only for its price: 80€. He says he is very proud of the evolutions of the game for its future reissue, attesting that the level here is the same as for a Last of Us Part Two. The price is, according to Robert Morrison of the entity PlayStation Studios Visual Arts, justified, because it is a meticulous work, which will show the technical gap between the two versions.
Game of Thrones: Deaths not so definitive?
Game of Thrones is undoubtedly THE TV series that smashed the 2010s. With records for production budget, piracy, viewing, and audience buzz on the internet, the series holds a place of choice in pop culture. modern. For many, the series was incredible for one reason: because it sprang from the twisted mind of George RR Martin, the author of the books A Song of Ice and Fire that fits the series. The literary saga began in 96 with the first book. Today in 2022, the adventure has 5 volumes, and we are still waiting for two more, just to conclude the adventure. Unfortunately, the TV series, started in 2011, went faster than the music and George RR Martin has not yet completed his adventure, forcing the directors and screenwriters of the TV show to invent a way out of this story. Thus, 11 years after the publication of the last volume to date, Martin comes out of his silence, to evoke volume 6, which was nevertheless planned for 2016. He declares that the writing of the book is moving further and further away from the series.
Space like you’ve never seen it before
We had the right last night to the sharpest shot ever produced to date in space. It comes to us from a brand new space telescope, NASA’s James Webb Telescope. The photograph of the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 was presented overnight from Monday to Tuesday by the White House which received it from the American space agency, and the rendering is, it must be admitted, staggering . The telescope takes over from Hubble, the previous tenor of NASA space telescopes, and drastically improves the shots we can have of the space around us. Its purpose is to study the origins of galaxies and stars. In terms of efficiency, Hubble took 50 hours to take this shot, while James Webb only needs one hour. A great step forward for star science!
