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.

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.

    Combining music, rhythm-based gameplay, and dungeon crawling isn't exactly a new idea, but it is one that hasn't been explored all that much. Which is why some folks may want to start taking a look at the newly announced Soundfall from some former Epic developers that make up Drastic Games.
