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.

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...

  • Loot Boxes Getting Removed from Forza Motorsport 7, No Paid Tokens for Forza Horizon 4

    A big change is coming to Forza Motorsport 7. Studio head of Turn 10 Alan Hartman revealed that they are working to remove the loot box "prize crates" from Forza 7. He also notes that there will not be any paid tokens in either Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 4.

    The problem here is that due to how integrated the loot box system is to the overall progression in Forza 7, it will take some time to remove them. That is to say, the removal won't take place until the Winter update for the game.

    Here is what Hartman has to say about this decision...

That something looks to be a Strange Brigade Season Pass that will include a new campaign, new playable characters, new weapons, and more. If you don't want to pay extra for the Season Pass, there will be free monthly con...
