Review: GreedFall (PC)

A long and thrilling journey.

GreedFall is a game that filled a gaping void I did not know I had for a new action-RPG experience. Though it lacks some of the polish you would expect from a major game release these days, the game still rewards the player with fun and varied combat, complex story beats, and an overall experience that should make even the veterans at BioWare sit up and take notice. For those of you that have been on the fence about picking up GreedFall, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not go pick it up right now.

PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

Sony dishes more details about their next-gen console and controller.

The announcement of the next-gen consoles has been really, really weird. Sony first announced the PlayStation 5 via a Wired interview with Mark Cerny. Since then, there really hasn't been much revealed about the new console. In fact, it wasn't even known until today that the next console was actually going to be called the "PlayStation 5."

Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

    Next Alien Game is a Mobile Romp


    Alien: Isolation is a fantastic horror game from Creative Assembly and Sega. Fans want a sequel but that's just not in the cards right now. In fact, most of the dev team that worked on Alien: Isolation aren't even with the studio any longer.

    In spite of that, fans still believed and hoped that an Alien: Isolation sequel was in the cards when the Alien Twitter account began to tease something new just a couple of days ago. ...

    Though an official announcement has not yet been made, it seems all to clear that Catherine is headed to the PC.

    First off, there is the fact that the ESRB has updated its rating for Catherine, having just added PC to the release list. Secondly, there are all of these sheep starting to appear on Steam. Fans have spotted images of sheep on the Steam pages for Bayonetta and Valkyria Chronicles 4.

    You Can Now Play P.T. on the PC in VR


    Unreal PT is what happens when someone takes assets from P.T., puts them back together in Unreal Engine 4, and adds in VR support because to hell with everything, you weren't going to sleep tonight anyway. For those that forgot about P.T., it is the "Playable Teaser" that was created by Kojima Productions and Guillermo Del Toro back in 2014. It was revealed and released without anybody knowing just what it was all about. Most who dove in thought it was just a unique horror demo and that was it. It wasn't until clever puzzle solvers discovered that it was an i...

  • Fallout 4 Capital Wasteland Mod Returns from Limbo

    Fallout 4 Capital Wasteland Mod Returns from Limbo


    A short time back, it seemed like the Capital Wasteland mod for Fallout 4 would be stuck in a perpetual state of limbo. The mod was aiming to essentially bring over Fallout 3, environments and all, into Fallout 4. This included the environments, quests, and even the dialogue from Fallout 3.

    Yeah, there were more than a few legal issues with at least some of that and after some discussions with Bethesda, the mod team opted to put the project on hold. Thankfully, it looks like work on the mod will continue. However, instead of bringing over the voice...

  • Two Popular LEGO Games Pulled from Steam

    Two Popular LEGO Games Pulled from Steam


    As the year ticked over into 2019, two LEGO titles were quietly pulled from Steam and other digital retailers. These two games are the now dearly departed LEGO The Lord of the Rings and LEGO The Hobbit.

    The removal of these two games was first spotted via Reddit user SuperMoonky. It looks as though these games still have their Steam Store pages intact, but they no longer show up when searching for them. Additionally, there is no option to purchase the games should you somehow end up on their pages.

    We all love massive game mods, especially when they hold nothing back. Thankfully, the mod scene for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is still very much alive and kicking as we're about to find out. A Skyrim mod team has been hard at work creating a mod called "Beyond Skyrim: Morrowind - The New North," or "The New North," or even "Beyond Skyrim" for short. In a broader sense, Beyond Skyrim will be a collection of mods that bring most major areas of Tamriel together in one mod package. Today's reveal is for Morrowind.
