Every other week, we gather some of the best tech stories from around the web and bring them to you here with our spin on it.
The PS4 has a new game for those who create
Anyone remember “Little Big Planet”? The game where you could create your own worlds to explore? Media Molecule, the studio behind the classic sandbox game is getting ready to launch “Dreams”, which is the spiritual successor to the original created world.
You can control everything about this game as you create your environment; and yes I mean everything. From the color of the sky, to the music, to the sound effects. It can be almost anything you can imagine.
If this sounds like something that would appeal to the creator in you, check out this article diving into the world of “Dreams”.
And make sure you have a router that can handle all of your creations with the EXO AC2600 Wi-Fi Router (DIR-882). Because no one likes a game dropping out mid-creation.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. How on-brand is that? The surprise hit from directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord surprised us all with its hilarious yet warm-hearted story of an average lego guy saving the master builders to free the suppressed creative spirit of their world. Now, with the highly anticipated sequel officially announced to be hitting theaters in February of 2019, we can refresh ourselves with the original.
