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...

    Report: Destiny 2 Going Free-to-play and Coming to Steam

    This is assuming the rumors are true...

    It looks like Destiny 2 will be making some significant changes in the months ahead. According to an early leak, or a rumor, or whatever you want to call it, Destiny 2 is making the move to free-to-play. Engadget apparently put their article up well ahead of schedule this morning that details the coming changes.

    The article, since pulled from public sight, was read and given a nice "CliffsNotes version" over on the Destiny subreddit.

    In short, Destiny 2 will be going F2P on all platforms....

  • EA is Changing the Name of Their Latest Battlefield V Elite Soldier

    EA is Changing the Name of Their Latest Battlefield V Elite Soldier

    It turns out the name belonged to a real-world resistance fighter, not a Nazi.

    One of the new Elite soldiers in Battlefield V is getting a name change from EA and DICE. The new Elite, Wilhelm Franke, is the current name of one of the pre-built soldiers players can purchase for real money to use in multiplayer.

    This character in Battlefield V is a German that fights for the Axis, aka "the baddies." Or to say it another way: He's a Nazi. In real life, Wilhelm Franke was the name of an anti-fascist resistance fighter during WWII. He fought...

    SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated Announced

    Published from the studio that hosted an AMA on a site banned for child exploitation.

    A remake of the old SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom was announced today by THQ Nordic. The publisher said that the remake is called SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated and it is being developed by Purple Lamp Studios.

    There isn't too much to go on right now from today's announcement. I assume it's just the old game but given a fresh coat of paint. The original was apparently enjoyed by a fair number of people for some...

  • World War Z 'The Undead Sea' Content Update is Out Now

    World War Z 'The Undead Sea' Content Update is Out Now

    I wonder if the rhyme was intentional.

    The first major content update for World War Z was released today for all platforms (PS4, XB1, and PC). This content is called "The Undead Sea" and it introduces a new mission set in Tokyo aboard a ferry filled with plenty of the living dead. You will fight through open decks and tight cabins in what they're calling the "most intense challenge yet."

    This update also introduces a new zombie type. This one will spit toxin at you and will come back to life "if not dispatched appropriately."...
