OPINION - Does Starfield live up to the hype?: Tech and Science Daily podcast


The reviews for Bethesda’s Starfield are finally in. Vicky Jessop, who writes about gaming for the Evening Standard, was given a preview, and has spent 40 hours playing it so she could give a full review.

Starfield is now available to play exclusively across Xbox Series X/S and PC for those with early access, ahead of the official launch on 6th September.

Astronomers say new James Webb Space Telescope images could unlock mysteries of exploding stars, why a dose of aspirin daily could help prevent diabetes in older people, and a new amphibian family tree shows frogs may have evolved tens of millions of years later than previously thought.

Plus, Instagram could show you longer Reels in a bid to keep up with TikTok, and there is finally a solution to all those work meetings that should've just been an email.
