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.

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...

  • Palmer Luckey: "We don't make money on the Rift" and Explains the "$350 Ballpark" Quote

    Yesterday, Palmer Luckey of Oculus VR held an AMA over on Reddit. The founder of the virtual reality company fielded a number of questions, including offering up some in-depth responses to criticisms that were raised yesterday following the $600 price reveal for the Oculus Rift.
    I handled the messaging poorly. Earlier last year, we started officially messaging that the Rift+Recommended spec PC would cost roughly $1500. That was around the time we committed to the path of prioritizing quality over cost, trying to make the best VR headset possible with current

    Speculation: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming in June, Released Holiday 2016

    According to analyst Junko Yamamura of Nomura Securities, Nintendo will reveal their NX console this June, with the full release planned for just prior to the 2016 holiday season at the end of the year.

    The firm also believes that the NX will indeed have an impact on the sales of both the 3DS and Wii U, which actually seems super obvious.
    We had previously thought that the NX launch would have only a limited impact on 3DS and Wii U sales as it is not being positioned as a successor to either console, but we have now altered our view because
