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.

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...

    Review: Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire (PC)

    This is Guild Wars at its absolute best.

    Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire is the best that the Guild Wars franchise has ever been. ArenaNet has done an absolutely stellar job here. The visuals are fantastic. The already solid graphics and colorful spells complemented by gorgeous vistas throughout a number of varied and richly detailed environments. The story is thoroughly engaging from start to finish. Any reservations about the additions of mounts into the franchise should be tossed aside. Perhaps most importantly, ArenaNet learned from the mistakes in...

  • Former Naughty Dog Employee, David Ballard, Claims He was Sexually Harassed by Lead in 2015

    David Ballard was an environmental artist and level designer throughout most of the Uncharted series in addition to The Last of Us. I say "was" because Ballard parted ways from Naughty Dog in 2016, though it seems as though he did not leave on friendly terms.

    He says he was fired from Naughty Dog after suffering a mental breakdown in early 2016 as a result of being "sexually harassed at Naughty Dog by a lead" in late 2015. He states that Sony tried to buy his silence about what happened to him. I'll let his own words speak for themselves on the matter. ...

    Humble Bundle Acquired by IGN

    IGN announced today that they have acquired Humble Bundle. Talk about out of left field, eh?

    Humble, as you may not know, often sells "bundles" of games for a pay-what-you-want price. Obviously, the more you play the more you will get on most bundles. Humble also expanded to publishing games, running a game subscription service, and they operate a more traditional online storefront like Steam or GOG. IGN says that this acquisition will allow Humble to continue operating independently. They said that there should be no significant changes to either b...
