The most popular Genshin Impact character is Fischl

Genshin Impact is a game where you collect cute boys and girls, but still, players end up having favorites that they use more than others. According to developer Mihoyo, while internal usage stats don’t show a huge difference between the available waifus and husbandos, Fischl comes out on top.

Probably, this isn’t a surprise to anyone who plays — if you look at fan-made tier lists, Fischl is considered one of the most powerful units you can have. I initially didn’t use her because I wasn’t fond of archer characters, but after hearing how good she is, Fischl has is now in my main party. And, sure enough, Fischl is a beast. There’s a reason one of her builds is called “machine gun Fischl” by players.

“Each character is going to have their own fan base, and we think it’s best to simply let players decide who their favorite characters are for themselves,” a Mihoyo rep told Polygon over email.

The PS5 was ‘much larger’ in the beginning

At nearly 16 inches tall and more than 10 inches wide, the PlayStation 5 is a very large video game console. Sizable, some might say. Beefy. But, would you believe it was almost even bigger?

Love or hate the design, the PS5’s notable chonk is undeniable. According to designer Yujin Morisawa, in an interview published Monday by the Washington Post, the original drawings depicted an even more colossal device.

Spider-fans who have played (or are still playing) Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 will be able to carry over their progress to the remastered PlayStation 5 version of the game, a reversal from developer Insomniac Games. The studio announced the change on Twitter on Monday, saying that game-save transfers will be available sometime after Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered launches on PS5 this week.

“We have heard you - in an upcoming update for [Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4], we will add the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered,” Insomniac said in a tweet. “This update will also add the three new suits from Remastered to the PS4 game. We expect to bring you this update around Thanksgiving.”

A few weeks ago, there were rumblings that Destiny 2 would see another end-of-season event thanks to a datamined emblem — similar to the crashing of the Almighty last season. But after an email went out to some players, Bungie officially announced the in-game event.

Remote Play on PlayStation 4, which lets console owners access their PS4 from a PC or mobile device to stream games over a wireless connection, is getting an upgrade.

PSA: Don’t buy an SSD for your PS5 just yet

While details on the PlayStation 5 were a little late to materialize compared to the Xbox Series X, Sony has been pretty upfront about the complexity of its architecture. But it bears mentioning one more time, especially as consumers start preparing for a new console in earnest: There are not currently any ultra-high speed solid-state drive (SSD) storage devices certified to work with the cutting-edge console, and there won’t be any until some time after launch.

The reminder was included in a new FAQ published Monday on the PlayStation blog, and echoes the statements made by lead system architect Mark Cerny in March.
