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...

    Battlefield 1: Nivelle Nights Update Released

    DICE and EA rolled out the Nivelle Nights Update today for Battlefield 1. Yep, we now have a new map and it came alongside the June title update for the game. While this map is only for those that have Premium or own the They Shall Not Pass DLC. You can, however, play the map through the Premium Friends system, provided you have friends... with Premium.

    Nivelle Nights is the first night map in the game. It's the French versus the Germans "in mud-filled trenches." Well alright then. What about the rest of today's changelog?

  • World of Tanks Coming to Xbox One X; New 4K Screenshots

    World of Tanks Coming to Xbox One X; New 4K Screenshots

    Wargaming announced today that "WoT is under development for the console." I think I was able to decipher the clues from the rest of the email here to figure out that World of Tanks is in development for the Xbox One X. The email, uh, wasn't very clear about this. Though seeing as how the game is already out for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, I really don't think they meant the Switch. Let's face it, 4K screenshots coming from a Switch? Not very likely. Speaking of those screenshots, here we have some 4K screenshots from the Xbox One X version o...

  • The Influence of Games on Online Casinos

    The Influence of Games on Online Casinos

    For years now, the casino industry has made significant strides towards becoming far more mainstream. This includes the addition of more touch screen devices at traditional casino establishments. It also includes the addition of gambling for fun (not for real money payouts) devices being added to places that never had any sort of gambling machines in the past. This also includes the push for more gambling in an online environment. Lately, the biggest push is for online casinos. There are a number of "for fun" gambling sites in addition to sites that let you try your ...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Stand-Alone Maybe Coming June 27 for $40

    Despite Activision claiming time and time again that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered would never be sold separately, it looks like they were lying. Well, they're lying assuming that the rumors are true, rumors that have photographic evidence to back up the claims.

    According to some tips provided to Charlie Intel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be released as a stand-alone product on June 20 for the rather lofty price of $39.99 (USD). The anonymous source said that the computers at their place of business provided the date and they provided...

    Take-Two Shuts Down Paid GTA Online Cheating Tool

    Hot on the heels of shutting down a totally harmless single player mod tool set, OpenIV, Take-Two has finally set their sights on the actual problem in GTA Online.

    Force Hax was one of the go to modding tools that cheaters and griefers used in GTA Online. Take-Two forced Force Hax to cease all distribution of the cheat menu and to donate their proceeds to charity.

  • Rockstar Facing Backlash After Shutting Down GTA Modding Tool OpenIV

    Rockstar Facing Backlash After Shutting Down GTA Modding Tool OpenIV

    About 80% of the most recent 24,000+ Steam reviews for Grand Theft Auto V have been negative following the Take-Two Interactive shutdown of the popular GTA modding tool, OpenIV.

    This community disgust doesn't just stop with the Steam reviews. Instead, it continues on to an ongoing petition at Change.org, which currently has nearly 25,000 signatures. The petition will be sent to both Take-Two and Rockstar.
    The closing of OpenIV leaves 10,000s of people without access to be able to mod their games, and leaves 10,000s of people without the ability

  • Forza 7 Requires 100GB of Free Space at Launch

    Forza 7 Requires 100GB of Free Space at Launch

    Forza Motorsport 7 is going to require a copious amount of free hard drive space when it launches later this year. While the PC system requirements did not seem to be too crazy, there was a noticeable omission of the HDD space requirements. The mystery remains no more because the game's store page was updated with that omission and boy is it a doozy.

    Both PC and Xbox One owners will need to have 100GB of free space for the game.

    This size was first noted by MSPoweruser. Microsoft has apparently since removed that bit from their store...
