As a historian, and a musician, and a huge fan of folk music, I'm fascinated by what ancient music may have sounded like. Not music from hundreds of years ago, but for thousands of years ago. Recently, there have been breakthroughs in the sounds of music from Ancient Greece. Absolutely wondrous. 

Anyone who's played video games as long as I have (since the Atari 2600) and watched the industry as long as I have -- they knew what was coming with the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Sure, I want to play the game, but I'll wait until it's finished, thanks.

The big get bigger, the rich get richer. Sony is buying Crunchyroll, the popular anime streaming service.
