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."

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.

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...

    Agony Devs Break Another Promise, Cancel Agony Unrated

    This one is a big ol' "yikes." The saga of Agony has been a real rough one. After successfully being crowdfunded, the game was delayed for months before eventually being released. However, it had to make some cuts to the content in order to appease its publisher and not be hit with an AO rating.

    The developer, Madmind Studio, said that they would release an uncensored patch with all of the cut content afterwards. Only, they didn't allegedly due to legal reasons. So the game was released albeit with some cut content. What remained was still quite...

  • Telltale Reportedly Ditching Their Old In-House Game Engine in Favor of Unity

    At long last, Telltale Games is going to ditch their own in-house engine that has been used for a bit over 30 games at this point. They will begin to use the Unity engine for all games after The Walking Dead: The Final Season.

    This means that the Telltale adventure game based on Stranger Things should be the first game built using Unity. While many may argue that Unity on consoles isn't all that great, they should agree that it's better than continuing to use Telltale's old engine. This is an engine that has resulted in a number of bugs and issues...

    PSA: The Steam Summer Sale 2018 is Here

    Though the Steam Store seems to be up and down more than a uh... er... roller coaster (let's just go with that), I will tell you now that the Steam Summer Sale for 2018 is now underway. That's probably why the store keeps bringing up errors every so often. It's a Steam sale. If you've been around for the past couple of years, you know what the deal is here. If not, you should know that there are no daily deals. There are no flash sales. If you see something on sale from now until July 4 at 10AM (PT), then buy it. If it's not on sale yet, then don't expect it t...
