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...

  • Speedrunner Distortion2 Completes Nioh in Just Over an Hour and a Half

    Speedrunner Distortion2 Completes Nioh in Just Over an Hour and a Half

    Speedruns for Nioh have been underway roughly a day or two after the game was released. The game has proven especially popular with runners that favor games like the Dark Souls franchise and Bloodborne. Speedrunner Distortion2 is no stranger to either of those games, often trading world records with his fellow runners over at Speedsouls. Distortion2 is the "current" world record holder (as of February 21, 2017) in Nioh with a time for doing all main missions of 1:36:51. Due to how new the game is, it is very likely that this record will come and go many tim...

    Persona 5 - Your Invitation to the Velvet Room is Here

    I don't pretend to know the first thing about the Persona series. I'm not going to pretend to know anything about this new Persona 5 trailer and The Velvet Room. I'm just going to let the press release and trailer speak for themselves.
    Sometimes when the protagonist of Persona 5 goes to sleep, he doesn't dream like a normal Japanese high-schooler. Oh no. He gets transported to a place that exists between dream and reality, mind and matter. A place where fate has made it look like a prison. A place where sacrifice creates power, and where a familiar face

    Nintendo Switch

    Every time a new piece of kit is in the pipeline, then the rumours and hype, specs and 'leaked' photos hit our screens as the excitement builds.

    This has been the case repeatedly and something that we have come to accept and even enjoy. Some might ask "why all of the excitement?" That question is pretty easy to answer when you take time to consider how much we rely on our Smartphones, laptops, consoles, tablets and all the other electronic innovations we can enjoy.

    Browsing the internet, playing on games like mobile bingo sites, keeping up...
