Dreams is a hard game to explain. It is a game, but it’s also a creation tool, a social network, a film studio, a music editor, and so much more, all wrapped into a single package. While Media Molecule has defined Dreams in the past, at PSX this weekend, the studio dove far, far deeper into what creators are actually capable of making with Dreams, and how much potential it has to be an absolute game-changer as a creation tool. When you start Dreams, you’ll choose an Imp, a small avatar that essentially serves as your cursor and allows you…

The almost entirely sparse and dull content of Curse of Osiris for Destiny 2 makes it one of the most disappointing Destiny additions to date. It includes a brief two- to three-hour campaign with a hollow story, a tiny public space with little to do, and two new multiplayer maps (three on PlayStation 4). Its only saving grace is the fantastic Raid Lair activity, which offers real challenges, unique puzzles, and high-level loot. The unexciting campaign takes you inside the new Infinite Forest area of Mercury (when you’re not completing a fetch quest on one of the existing destinations) and…
