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...
 

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...

    Sony Promises Less Talk, More Games for E3 2017

    Similar to the previous years, Sony is again going for a "less talk, more rock more games" approach to E3. Sony's E3 2017 press conference, which is scheduled for 9PM (ET) on Monday, June 12, will once again put the focus on video games.

    Horizon Shipped Over 3.4 Million Copies

    It has been reported today that Horizon Zero Dawn has "sold" more than 3.4 million copies as of April 30. That is a period of roughly two months since the game's release. Now, I say "sale" because it has not been specified if those units were sold through to consumers or simply sold to retail outlets, though Sony has only revealed sold-through figures on recent reports. It was however specified that at least 915,000 of that 3.4 million figure were digital sales directly to consumers. Shawn Layden briefly touched upon the success of the digital store in statemen...

    Ronaldo Named Cover Athlete for EA Sports FIFA 18

    Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the global cover athlete for EA Sports FIFA 18. For those not in the know, Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid C.F. As the resident soccer expert, I feel confident in saying that the "C.F." stands for "Courageous Footy."
    To deliver innovation in FIFA 18, Cristiano Ronaldo's data was recently recorded during a training session at a mobile EA Capture studio in Madrid. Data capture of Ronaldo's acceleration, run cadence, skills, and shooting technique were all recorded to bring veracity to his likeness and personality in FIFA 18. His data

    Steam Direct Fee Details and Changes to Steam Curators

    With the imminent death of Steam Greenlight, Valve finally started to get some details out about their Steam Direct program that will replace it. First up, the fee for adding games to Steam Direct will be $100, which honestly sounds a bit low given that this is the same price as what Greenlight was.

    But hey, let's see what Valve's reasoning is for making it $100.
    We thought it would be great if the game community at large had a conversation about it, including both players and developers, which was why we chose not to highlight a specific

    Rime DRM Cracked; Developer Moves Forward on Promise to Remove DRM for All

    Earlier today it was reported that the DRM used for RiME was cracked. That DRM is, of course, Denuvo. Given that the game just came out on the 26th, this might be a new record for how quickly a Denuvo game was cracked.

    RiME's developer, Grey Box, had promised that if the DRM was cracked that they would remove it for everyone.

    True to their word, they are moving forward with doing precisely that.
    Hi everybody, We wanted to give you an update regarding the use of Denuvo anti-tamper software in RiME. Today, we got word that t
