FIFA 18 Ultimate Team ratings refresh now live: Salah, Kane and De Bruyne all get a stats boost

Netflix’s Mute might look like Blade Runner, but its central story ignores sci-fi in favour of something better: people who matter

This morning I watched Mute, the new sci-fi mystery film from Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones. Quite the opposite; the whole point of science fiction is to extrapolate the human experience in order to explore it on an exploded scale. He is a man in a science fiction city who avoids using digital technology whenever possible. In a show that emphasises the ‘science’ part of science fiction though, things can get messy if not treated with utmost care and finesse. Of the two, I certainly

Forget graphics – to get a real sense of how games have evolved, look at their menus

But what if there was another way to look at games and analyze them? Video game menus are not the most exciting topic in the world. If it helps, think of scrutinizing menus like codebreaking - uncovering hidden messages left by a game's developers. The Sonic games are, relatively speaking, pretty basic. That makes it easier to notice differences than, say, Mass Effect, where BioWare was always going to try and make things look befitting of its sci-fi universe.

This scene from Netflix’s Mute has a sly nod to a classic ’90s strategy game

Not the FPS Syndicate reboot from 2012, the 1993 original from Bullfrog Productions. The critical response to Mute has been mixed so far but you can't argue with Duncan Jones' chops as an old-school strategy game fan. Minor spoiler warning for Mute if you're sensitive to plot details, though this scene gives little away by itself. And this is what the mind-controlled cyborg thugs from Syndicate look like, at least on the box art (in the game they're about 20 pixels tall). For more sly cinematic

Assassin’s Creed Origins’ idea of heaven involves giant scorpions, harpies, and flying ships

Thankfully, our favourite ex-medjay Bayek is on hand and is ready to kill a few undead souls in the new Assassin’s Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs DLC. As you’d expect with Assassin’s Creed Origins, it’s not simply a case of chucking the glittering beetle back in Nefertiti’s sarcophagus. But, regardless of whether you want to start diving into ancient Egyptian mythology rather than hay bales, the splendour of this new area is enough to get you hooked. From the couple of hours I’ve played of
