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 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.

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...

    EA and Ubisoft Settle Dispute Over the Word "Ghost"

    Remember when a really stupid thing happened in the gaming industry? That's too vague. Remember when that stupid thing was EA and Ubisoft were on the verge of hot legal action over the use of the word "Ghost?" Guess what? The dispute has been resolved!

    EA has pulled one of their trademark filings for "Ghost." EA still has Ghost Games, developer of recent Need for Speed games and Ubisoft still has Ghost Recon. Everyone is happy.

    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.
