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...

    Final Titles Revealed for Genesis Mini Brings Total to 42 Games

    The final 12 games revealed.

    The Sega Genesis Mini was originally only going to have 40 games included. Over the past few weeks, we've seen a steady trickle of new game announcements roll in 10 at a time. We were supposed to get the final 10 games revealed to us this week, but that isn't the case at all.

    No, instead we get to see the final 12 games announced. That's right, the Sega Genesis Mini will ship with two extra games than what it was expected to ship with. Those final games can be found below along with the other, previously announced...

    Microsoft Announces Xbox Branded Body Wash from Makers of Axe

    Smell like a Gamer.

    Microsoft announced a new partnership today with the makers of the Axe body spray, Unilever. Together, these two companies will bring to the world Xbox branded body spray, shower gel, and deodorant. It's green. It's very green. The actual lineup of products is called "Xbox Lynx" and, unfortunately for all of you already throwing money at your screens, these products will be exclusive to Australia.

    If Lynx sounds familiar to you, that would be because it's the name given to Axe in markets that aren't the US. Microsoft...

  • Shenmue 3 Delayed Until November 2019

    Shenmue 3 Delayed Until November 2019

    It's now coming just two weeks after Death Stranding.

    Shenmue III has officially been given a three month delay. This news comes courtesy of a Yu Suzuki update to the official Shenmue III Kickstarter page. The game was originally slated to drop on August 27, 2019 but has now been pushed back until November 19, 2019.

    This now places the game just two weeks after the release of Death Stranding and just four days after Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I'm sure there will be even more titles released in this particular window. The end of the year is...

  • Watch Dogs 3 'Legion' Leak - London Setting, Play as Anybody ala 'MindJack'

    Watch Dogs 3 'Legion' Leak - London Setting, Play as Anybody ala 'MindJack'

    Let's get these E3 2019 rumors starting off strong.

    In 2011 a game was released wherein the main character could "hack" into
    the minds of any other character and take control of them. The game was called MindJack (pictured above) and, in addition to the unique mind hacking, the game also featured a single-player story that could "transition seamlessly" into co-op. It wasn't all that well received.

    Fast-forward to the present and a hot pre-E3 leak tells us that the idea behind MindJack may be very much alive and well...

  • EA Shares E3 Streaming Schedule

    EA Shares E3 Streaming Schedule

    Keynotes are so last year.

    EA not holding their annual E3 press conference for this year's event was known for quite some time now. In its place, the company has decided instead to have a long series of streams featuring various games that are coming out or that are already out.

    Today, the official schedule for these streams was revealed by the official EA Star Wars account. This is presumably because Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the game that will kick off the event, beginning at 9:30AM (PT) on June 8. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being the...

  • Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack - Shang Tsung Gameplay; Spawn and Others Announced

    Your soul is his!

    Mortal Kombat 11 has already bestowed upon us the best Shang Tsung in the franchise's history. A big part of this is due to the fact that they brought back Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, the actor that portrayed the shape-shifting Tsung in the original Mortal Kombat film. I'm not going to lie: Hearing his voice again and seeing his likeness as he guided me through the Krypt was a real treat.

    Now, Shang Tsung is letting loose and getting back into the swing of things. He will be one of the "new" fighters added in the first upcoming...

    'Next Chapter of Destiny 2' to be Revealed Next Week

    Looks like more Destiny 2 is coming after Season of Opulence.

    On June 4, Bungie will kick off the Season of Opulence for Destiny 2. This was the last piece of confirmed content for the second season pass for Destiny 2, leaving the future of the game and the franchise as a bit of a mystery. What was going to come after the Season of Opulence? Would Bungie keep making content for Destiny 2 or would we see a Destiny 3 instead?

    Bungie made that future rather clear today. The studio announced that they would be revealing "the next chapter of...
