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.

Before we get into it all, let's just read what they have to say. Here is Blizzard's full statement as it currently appears on their website.

Despite a reduction of six months for the suspension, Blizzard is still punishing Blitzchung. The...

As if that wasn't bad enough, VGC's report says that SIEE employees were informed about when American PlayStation directors visited SIEE in their London location. Those employees who were impacted by these layoffs...

Blizzard Employees Walkout in Protest of Unjust Ban on Pro-Hong Kong Hearthstone Player

A small group of Blizzard employees are protesting against the actions of their employer.

A small group of Activision-Blizzard employees staged a walkout on Tuesday afternoon of this week to protest against their employer. Earlier this week, Blizzard had banned a professional Hearthstone player, Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, after he voiced his support for the pro-democracy Hong Kong protesters. Blitzchung voiced his support during a post-game interview during an official livestream.

Not only did Blizzard quickly cut away from the interview...

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...

  • Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Try to stick with me on this one. Ashen was released on December 7, 2018 for the Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store. It is a console timed exclusive, which means it "should" hit other consoles like the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future. It "may" also be a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store, which means it will come to other digital retailers on the PC at some point. Why are we not sure? Because every publisher and developer are being cheeky as hell when it comes to this whole "exclusive" thing with the newly launched Epic Games Store. See, Epic t...

  • BioWare Announces Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises

    BioWare Announces Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises

    If you got shivers reading that headline, you are in good company. Last night during The Game Awards, Anthem wasn't the only game that BioWare wanted to show off. The first glimpse at a new Dragon Age title was also shown off.

    All that we really gather is that it will be called Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises. Or maybe that's not the title and it's just a teaser sentence for the sake of the trailer. Who cares, it's new Dragon Age info!

    It's the most teaser filled of teaser trailers, but it's all we've got... for now. BioWare executive...
