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.

Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

A new report from VGC says that Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE) is undergoing a "restructuring" of several areas at the company, including marketing and PR. VGC says that they were informed of this unfortunate news from "people with knowledge of the situation."

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

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...

    Take Early Borderlands 3 Reviews with a Grain of Salt

    Copies of Borderlands 3 given to only a select few review sites ahead of launch.

    Review copies of Borderlands 3 have only been provided to a select few media outlets ahead of the game's launch on Friday, September 13. The game's publisher, 2K, says that this is all due in part to some unspecified "security concerns" over the game.

    As Kotaku points out, most review copies are provided to outlets roughly a week or two ahead of the public launch. These review copies can be physical offerings or, as is more common these days, a digital...

    Borderlands 3 Launch Trailer - 'Let's Make Some Mayhem'

    Borderlands 3 will be released on September 13, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store. It will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a period of six months until being more widely released on the PC. That is, assuming, plans don't change between now and then.

    Developer Gearbox and publisher 2K are saying that this is the return of the original shooter-looter, or "shlooter" if you think "why waste time say lot word." ...

  • What Makes Video Games And Casino Games Different?

    What Makes Video Games And Casino Games Different?

    'Online gaming,' to most of us, has a very clear meaning. It means playing video games through the medium of the internet, often in competition or alongside hundreds of other people at the same time. It's a logical evolution of the concept of video gaming, taking the idea of a multiplayer game from being something you played at home with two or three friends gathered around a console, to something you played alone at home, with two or three hundred friends around the world.

    There's a completely different definition of 'online gaming' to some people, though....

    Cube World is Coming to Steam

    Let me take you back to the year 2013...

    In 2013, a little game called Cube World came out in an "alpha" release. It was a cute, stylized adventure-RPG that offered a ton of freedom, battles, exploration, and more. A big appeal of the alpha was being able to have all of these adventures with your friends in one world. To its credit, the limited content of the alpha was quite enjoyable but the promise of bigger and better was always just around the corner. The problem came when it was just never updated! Eventually the developer went dark.
