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.

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...

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.

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...

  • OpenIV Returns After Rockstar Updates Mod Policy

    OpenIV Returns After Rockstar Updates Mod Policy

    A bit over a week ago, the Grand Theft Auto mod tool, OpenIV, was shut down by Take-Two. This move spurred the ire of many gamers and resulted in about 50,000 negative reviews on Steam for Grand Theft Auto V. This brought the recent reviews to "Overwhelmingly Negative" and the overall review down to "Mixed." Rockstar, the developers behind the Grand Theft Auto franchise, have notoriously been supportive of single-player mods for their games. They have often given a community spotlight to some of those mods in the past. It should be unsurprising then to learn th...

  • Noclip Investigates What Went Wrong with Final Fantasy XIV's Horrendous First Release

    Before Final Fantasy XIV was relaunched, there existed a release of the game that was almost total garbage. Fans and critics were not pleased with the game that initially released back in September of 2010. The user interface was horrendous. Performance across all systems was pathetic, at best. And the game featured mechanics that were just too bizarre for the MMORPG genre including "stamina" limitations that prevented players from being able to continue questing. These issues don't end there either. Servers were unstable and content was lacking. Fans weren...
