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...

    Final Fantasy XV Surpasses 16 Million Players

    That's a big number.

    Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XIV Online has surpassed the 16 million registered user mark today. While this is a very impressive number, it does not actually say how many of those registered users are active players.

    Final Fantasy XIV has been going on for about six years now. The studio is still actively updating the game and delivering new content on a regular basis. This also includes their upcoming expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, on July 2, 2019.

  • Call of Duty 2019 is Soft Reboot, Called 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'

    Call of Duty 2019 is Soft Reboot, Called 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'

    Déjà vu.

    According to some rumors with a bit of meat to them, we now know a couple of interesting details concerning the 2019 Call of Duty release.

    First off, this year's game is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I'm dead serious. It's going to be a new entry in the Modern Warfare series that originally started with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007. I know the difference between the two titles is literally just a single character, but it is a difference. Amusingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is actually the fourth Modern Warfare title,...

    Valve Kicks Off Spring Cleaning Event

    Play some old games before you buy new ones?

    Given that we already seem to know when the Steam Summer Sale will go live, it just makes sense that you should play and finish some of your back catalog first. That seems to be what Valve was thinking when they kicked off their Spring Cleaning Event today. This event rewards you for playing old games that have been sitting in your library, games you haven't played yet, and even some new, free games they're offering for the duration of this event.

    The following games are freer to play while the event...

  • Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    It's being beat by games that have been out for far longer.

    This week, Microsoft updated their most played games section on their store. These are the most played games in the Xbox ecosystem from 1 to 49. Why 49 and not 50? How am I supposed to know? The important part here is that Anthem has now fallen off of this most played list.

    The last handful of games on the list include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Borderlands 2, Brawlhalla, and Battlefield 1. That's Battlefield 1, not the more recent Battlefield 5 which is actually looking to be the 23rd...

    Nioh 2 Closed Alpha Teaser

    Pull my devil trigger?

    A new teaser trailer is out today for Nioh 2. This trailer gives you a little glimpse of the upcoming closed alpha for the game. Invites for the alpha have already gone out to some PlayStation 4 owners. According to Team Ninja, there are no plans to expand the alpha beyond those who are already invited.

    Like its predecessor, Nioh 2 looks to bring even more action and exploration to fans that liked the original. It seems as though there will once again be a wide variety of enemies to face, moves to master, and even something...

    'Absolute Majority' of Metro Exodus Sales Were on Consoles

    THQ Nordic founder tries to avoid talking about Epic Games Store sales figures.

    Lars Wingefors, THQ Nordic's CEO and founder, seemed rather reserved when talking about the sales figures for some of THQ's most publicized releases this past year. Specifically, he shied away from talking specifics when it comes to PC sales of games like Metro Exodus and outright ignores another question regarding sales of Satisfactory.

    A lot of this information came courtesy of the latest earnings call for the company.

    According to those who listened...
