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.

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.

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...

    DOOM 64 Confirmed for a November Release on Switch

    The once Nintendo 64 exclusive is coming to the Switch this November.

    DOOM 64, perhaps the least talked about Doom title, is finally ready to spend some time in the spotlight. This classic Nintendo 64 title, originally released back in 1997, has been confirmed for a release on the Nintendo Switch. Not only that, but it's out very soon, on November 22, 2019.

    Doom 64 never really saw a release outside of the N64, which is a damn shame because that was a great Doom game. It was also, perhaps, the most colorful Doom title ever released. There have...

    F K ... in the coffee!

    Out of nowhere came the announcement that Deadly Premonition 2 is not only real, but it's coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2020. On top of that crazy reveal is the fact that the first game, now called Deadly Premonition Origins, is available right now on the Nintendo Switch.

  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Announced and Partially Released Now

    The crazy action that is the Plants vs. Zombies franchise continues today with Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It's essentially Garden Warfare 3 but without the name. The release date is slated for October 18, but thanks to a Founder's Edition, you can actually start playing right now on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    The Founder's Edition is a bit of an odd one. You can play now, but the game still doesn't include all of the content. EA and PopCap says that...
