Best stories of the week


Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is looking increasingly like good value for money now that Project Xcloud is being bundled into the service, while the worst Sonic the Hedgehog game is being resurrected as a surprisingly kickass fan remake!

Cats in longboats. That’s it, that’s the winner right there.
