Bugsnax is an interesting game to launch alongside the PlayStation 5, an expensive machine pitched to usher in gaming's "next generation." It is not a technical showcase, with frame rate drops while playing the game at 4K resolutions. It basically ignores Sony's fancy DualSense controller, showcasing none of its standout features, like Astro's Playroom. It doesn't check many of the boxes traditionally thought of as justifying fancy new hardware, which isn't entirely surprising because it's being released on PlayStation 4 and PC, too.
