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.

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...

    Microsoft Revives Conker in the Worst Way Imaginable: As a HoloLens Game

    Remember Conker? He's the foul-mouthed squirrel that won the hearts and minds of an entire generation of Nintendo 64 owners. He briefly returned as a footnote in Project Spark. Fans weren't too thrilled about that. So what does Microsoft do? They go right back to the drawing board and bring Conker back as a younger version of himself for a HoloLens game.

    Major Minecraft Update Released - Minecraft 1.9 is the "Combat Update"

    Minecraft was just updated to version 1.9 today and wow is it ever a major, major update. Mojang is calling it the "Combat Update" but it includes far more than just significant updates to the combat. It also includes a glider, a new mob, more things to do in The End, new plants, new blocks, enchanted arrows, and more.

    The general overview changelog is below. The full 1.9 changelog is really long and there's no way in hell I'm about to paste that short novel length thing over here and/or try to format it for this site.

    HTC Vive Virtual Reality Package is Now Available for Pre-Order

    Hey, do you have $799 (USD) to spare? You do? Wow, that's surprising! I'll keep an eye on the mail for your check then! Oh, you're planning on buying the HTC Vive instead? Oh. Well, I understand.

  • This Week in Review: Superhot (February 21 - 27, 2016)

    This Week in Review: Superhot (February 21 - 27, 2016)

    I'm going to level with you all. Outside of Superhot, I haven't really had much time to play anything else "new" this week. And well, I already have a fairly lengthy review up for Superhot. Maybe you've seen it?

    What else was there? Well, I started to play Until Dawn on the PlayStation 4. It's not really a new release though, but I am enjoying it. I have seen it played through a few times and I still wanted to purchase it. Fortunately, Sony had a sale on the game and I was able to get it through PSN for about $24. Maybe I'll have a bit more to say...

  • Gabe Newell Responds to Terrible Dota 2 Shanghai Major - Calls James Harding an Ass, Fires Production Company

    Apparently, the Dota 2 Shanghai Major is kind of a shitshow. There are apparently problems with players getting the appropriate hardware, there are problems with being unable to watch the matches, and the list goes on.

    It apparently got so bad that Gabe Newell took to the Dota 2 subreddit to reveal that someone named James is an ass and that they're firing the production company.
    Two things: 1) James. We've had issues with James at previous events. Some Valve people lobbied to bring him back for Shanghai, feeling that he deserved another cha

    Rumor: Battlefield 5 Retail Listing Suggests WWI Setting

    A retail listing for Battlefield 5 popped up at a Swiss online retailer, World of Games. The description for the game mentions an October 26 release date and a description that points to the game being a "multiplayer tactical shooter in WWI."

    A Twitter user, Doctor_Cupcakes, seems to be the person that first discovered the initial listing. The original image with the old description can be found below. ...
