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.

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."

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...

    This is an interesting story to share with you today. According to a new report from Kotaku, smaller retail shops will not get any copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 to sell until at least November. This information comes from a number of small retail shop owners that Kotaku interviewed recently.

    Watch the Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

    Think of the title less of an informative statement and more of a command. You will watch the launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 that came out today. I'm sure you would do this anyway even without me issuing a weak command to you, so it's not like I'm pushing you that hard.
    America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must

    THQ Nordic and Bugbear announced that Wreckfest will not be making its planned release on November 20, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It has instead been delayed until some time in 2019.
    Anti-bullshit quote: "Wreckfest for consoles will only be released as soon as we love playing it. After the fantastic release on PC, the benchmark for the console release is much higher. At this moment, the team needs more time to polish the multiplayer part, as well as the overall performance on the game to bring it up to par with the experience on PC. We are sorry

    Imogen Heap Created an Original Track for The Quiet Man

    What even is The Quiet Man at this point? It's a mix of live-action and computer rendered graphics. It's got a protagonist that doesn't speak. It now also apparently has an original track from Imogen Heap, whom you probably know most from her "Hide and Seek" song that was prominently featured in the classic "Dear Sister" skit on Saturday Night Live.

    Are you ready for the name of the original song made by Imogen Heap for The Quiet Man? It's called "The Quiet." Alrighty then. Let's read up a bit about the game?

    Sean Bean to Die Once Again Courtesy of Hitman 2

    Sean Bean just cannot catch a break. The actor seems to be destined to play roles in which his character is killed off in one way or another. He has already met his end in films like GoldenEye and Lord of the Rings, or even the TV series Game of Thrones. Those are just the quick ones off the top of my head. According to ShortList, Bean has another 20+ films in which his character is killed off. The guy just can't catch a break, so who better to be the first elusive target in HITMAN 2 than him? Nobody, that's who. Alright, maybe there are some others who have be...

  • Sony Fixes Issue that Allowed Malicious Messages to Crash PlayStation 4 Consoles

    This past week, a number of PlayStation 4 owners started to discover that their consoles were stuck in a crash loop. These crashes were apparently caused by a malicious message sent by other users that contained text or characters that the PS4 operating system just did not like. Those who were unaware of the quick fix resorted to factory resetting their consoles. These users believed their consoles to be bricked by the offending message. Thankfully, this is not the case and you did not need to factory reset your console if you had fallen victim. It seems as though ...
