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...

    Review: Strange Brigade (PC)


    It's the 1930s and you are one of four (five if you pre-ordered) unique individuals that make up the very fine, yet very bizarre, group known as the Strange Brigade. It's up to you to save the world from dastardly devils, unruly undead, and a bevy of bigger than life bosses. Just how do you accomplish this, you may ask? It's simple! You shoot, you loot, explore, and then you shoot and loot some more.

    Such is the nature of Strange Brigade from Rebellion, the development studio that brought us the Sniper...

  • Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PS4)

    Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PS4)

    The best Yakuza game to date.
    Since January of 2017, I've had the good fortune to be able to review every Yakuza release that has come out on the PlayStation 4. It started with Yakuza 0, followed by Yakuza Kiwami, and then Yakuza 6 just a few months back. I have seen the beginning and the emotional end to this franchise. I have played it across two different game engines. Every entry has offered up something new and unique to experience while still maintaining a certain alluring appeal that kept me hooked through dozens upon dozens of gameplay hours. ...
