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 Issues Insultingly Pathetic Statement About Blitzchung Suspension and Reasoning

The cowards just doubled down.

Taking a page from politicians and businesses that know late on Friday is the best time to release news that you are positively ashamed to share, Blizzard has finally issued a statement about the recent ban on Blitzchung and two Hearthstone casters.

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.

Despite a reduction of six months for the suspension, Blizzard is still punishing Blitzchung. The...

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...

    Players Reportedly Unable to Access L.A. Noire VR Due to DRM Issues

    For days now, a number of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files players have reported that they are unable to play the game that they purchased due to DRM authentication issues.

    This issue was first spotted via the r/Vive section on Reddit and echoed on r/Games. The problem seems to be that the authentication servers are down, which leads to players being prompted to re-enter their product key despite their game already being activated previously.

    An ever growing number of Steam user reviews seem to confirm that there is a major issue going on...

    Starfield Being Created with New Hardware in Mind

    In case there was any doubt about Bethesda's Starfield being a "next-gen title" then perhaps the following information direct from Todd Howard himself will clear things up.

    Howard spoke with Eurogamer's Robert Purchese about his expectations for Starfield. Beyond it being a game that has gameplay systems and mechanics that he feels are "next-gen," the hardware that they are targeting isn't even out yet.
    What, then, does Starfield being next-generation mean? "That to us means two things," Todd Howard told me. "It does mean hardware and it does

    Summer Games Done Quick Smashes Previous Fund-Raising Record

    This past week, Summer Games Done Quick 2018 (SGDQ) was busy raising money for Doctors Without Borders. Throughout most of the week, the community that is primarily made up of speed runners, managed to pull in a bit over $1 million (USD).

    It wasn't until the final 24 hours that another $1 million was raised to bring the total to around $2.1 million for Doctors Without Borders. Significant portions of this $2.1 million figure came from revenue earned through Twitch subscriptions ($177,338), sales of unique GDQ inspired shirts through The Yetee ($135,400),...

  • Valve Looking into "Better" Steam Spy Alternative

    Valve Looking into "Better" Steam Spy Alternative

    In April of this year, Valve started to change up the privacy settings for all Steam users. By default, all Steam users had their game libraries set to private. As a side-effect of this move, this left services like Steam Spy having to close up shop as they could no longer provide accurate data for public consumption. Now, Valve says that they're personally working on an alternative to Steam Spy. Specifically, they're making "something better than Steam Spy." This information was shared by Valve's head of business development, Jan-Peter Ewert, in a presentatio...

    Carnival Games Brings Party Games to the Nintendo Switch in November

    2K is bringing back their Carnival Games franchise, this time for the Nintendo Switch. The game is simply going to be titled Carnival Games and it will release on November 6 for $39.99 (USD). I assume this is a reboot of the series given that it's not like "Carnival Games 3."
    Like a real-life county fair, Carnival Games allows players of all ages and experience levels to enjoy classic games like ring toss ("Post Master") and alley ball horse racing ("Roll-R-Derby"), as well as brand new attractions like drone racing ("Light Speed") and cosmic bowling ("Cosmic
