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...

    The Second Trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 is Here

    The second trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 was just released. As most people already kind of knew or guessed, the game is a prequel to the previous Red Dead Redemption. That actually kind of makes it less of a "redemption" then, right? Huh, anyway, here's some new information and the trailer itself.
    The all-new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive.
    Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out just for th...

    The Evil Within 2 Even Has an Evil Priest

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

  • Volition Lays Off Over 30 Employees

    Volition Lays Off Over 30 Employees

    Over the years, Volition created some pretty great games that includes the recently released Agents of Mayhem game plus the Saints Row, Descent Freespace, and Summoner franchises. Today, the studio laid off over 30 of its roughly 200 employees.

    These layoffs include General Manager Dan Cermak and video editor Josh "Chip Cheezum" Stinson. Stinson was perhaps best known for being the main face on most of Volition's livestreams.

    This all came about a month after the release of Agents of Mayhem. According to sources close to Kotaku, Agents...

  • LawBreakers Probably Chose a Bad Time to Have a Free Weekend

    LawBreakers Probably Chose a Bad Time to Have a Free Weekend

    Today, LawBreakers kicked off a 25% sale through Steam that runs through to next week. Boss Key Studios also announced a free weekend for the game, that runs from September 28 until October 2. There's just a little problem with the timing on that.

    See, the free release of Fortnite Battle Royale just happened. Also? The open beta for Call of Duty: WWII is slated for September 29. Given the huge cross-over between fans of these types of games, it probably wasn't such a great time for LawBreakers to try to breathe some life into their anemic player...

  • Confusion Forces Monolith to Change Plans on Middle-earth: Shadow of War Charity DLC

    Last month, WB Games and Monolith announced that they would be donating to the family of Mike Forgey, the former Executive Producer at Monlith. Forgey sadly passed away after a battle with brain cancer. Monolith said that all proceeds from the $3.50 Forthog DLC would be donated to the Forgey family. Well, the wording got a little muddled. The donations were only "confirmed" for most of the United States. Due to laws in other regions, including those "excluded" states, they couldn't just say that the proceeds would be going to the family but they strongly hi...
