December's PS Plus Essential lineup has leaked – and it includes this top RPG trilogy

Fans of action RPGs might have another reason to celebrate this holiday season as, according to a recent leak, PlayStation Plus's free games lineup for December includes the acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy.

The leak comes via French netizen billbil-kun, of business tips forum Dealabs, who has previously accurately leaked PlayStation Plus Essential free games on numerous occasions.

If their information stands true, we can expect Biomutant and Divine Knockout to accompany the complete remastered trilogy of Mass Effect (available now as Mass Effect Legendary Edition) when the PS Plus free games for December land on December 6.

A Christmas miracle?

While it’s an exciting prospect that Ps Plus subscribers might get their hands on a free copy of one of the most highly-regarded action RPGs of the last two decades, you’d be wise to approach this news with caution until an official announcement is made by Sony.

However, there are many reasons to be cautiously optimistic. Billbil-kun does have a strong track record for being a reliable leak source when it comes to PS Plus content. They have accurately leaked the last several months of PlayStation Plus’s free games roster, so being correct for the December line-up once again certainly isn’t out of the question.

It would make sense for combat-driven Divine Knockout to be included in the December 2022 offering. It has already been given a release date of December 6, which backs up billbil-kun’s assertion that all three games will come to PS Plus on that date. If this is true, it would mark another day-one PS Plus release, following in the footsteps (paw steps?) of sci-fi cat simulator Stray.

Biomutant casts a similar shadow to Divine Knockout, being a martial arts-heavy RPG. Originally released in 2021 to past-gen consoles, its September 2022 debut on PS5 and Xbox Series X│S means that it could do with a little pushing from Sony if it wants to make a splash for current-gen gamers.

The star of the show would of course be Mass Effect Legendary Edition. The remastered version of the award-winning action RPG trilogy, this third-person gunslinging sci-fi epic has been keeping us entertained for well over a decade now. 

With remastered visuals to truly enhance your experience of all three games, we can’t help but cross our fingers that billbil-kun’s impressive track record holds strong for one more month.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri
