Cyberpunk 2077 Returning to PlayStation Store soon
Cyberpunk 2077 is finally returning to the PlayStation Store and can be found by searching for the listing. It's still tagged as just announced, so you can't buy it yet.
Sony pulled the eagerly anticipated title following a somewhat scandalous launch plagued by bugs, broken promises and especially bad performance on last-generation consoles. The return is set for the 21st June, 2021, but it's recommended that you only play it on a PS4 Pro or PS5.
Patched up: CD Projekt RED has launched several major updates since then, and Cyberpunk 2077 is a much more playable game now than it was late last year. Stability and performance have improved, and major game-breaking bugs are mostly ironed out.
Cost of ambition: CD Projekt claims to have learned a valuable (and presumably rather expensive) lesson from the troubled launch, and have restructured their development and launch processes as a result. They also apologized to fans for ‘rushing’ the game out the door.
Hack’n’splash with heroic Firegirl this fall
Fight fire with water instead of more fire in Firegirl, a side-scrolling platformer where you fight fire to rescue people trapped in burning buildings.
At first, Firegirl has just three minutes to save as many people as she can but the time limit grows less restrictive as you work out who or what is behind the sudden wave of arson attacks.
Break room: Renovate and expand the Firehouse between missions to gain access to new equipment, hire more staff and enjoy the adoration of the grateful people you have rescued.
Fiery foes:Firegirl mixes pixel art characters with 3D environments and is coming to PC this fall, alongside PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Switch versions.

What was the first video game song to win a Grammy?
ANSWER: Baba Yetu!
Not a lot of games have a theme tune as powerful as Baba Yetu, and even fewer have won a Grammy award. Composer Christopher Tin translated the Lord's Prayer into Swahili and recorded a haunting yet optimistic world music version of it for Civilization IV from 2005.
The track was included on his debut album Calling All Dawns in 2009, which earned the Grammy nomination. In 2011, it was nominated for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) at the 53rd Grammys, and took the prize home. Pretty impressive for a title screen tune composed for a game that famously portrays Gandhi as obsessed with nuclear weapons.
