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."

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...

  • Rage 2 Updated on Steam to Remove Denuvo DRM

    Rage 2 Updated on Steam to Remove Denuvo DRM

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Bethesda announced that a new update was released today for the Steam version of Rage 2. This update, among other things, removes the always dreaded Denuvo DRM.

    Denuvo was included at the launch of the game on Steam, but was curiously missing from the Bethesda.net Launcher version that came out at the same time. Fans were a bit curious (and upset) over this. The ongoing theory is that Denuvo was utilized on Steam to prevent Rage 2 from getting leaked early from those with access to the review build. Reviews of the...

    Microsoft and Sony Announce Team Up for Gaming and Cloud Services

    This partnership focuses on "game and content-streaming services."

    Microsoft announced today that they and Sony have formed a partnership that will see the two working together on AI solutions and "innovations to enhance customer experiences in their direct-to-consumer entertainment platforms." That's probably as close as you're going to get to them strongly hinting at some form of actual gaming partnership in this announcement release.

    Ubisoft Delays Pirate Themed 'Skull & Bones' Until Mid-2020

    Open world naval pirate game to skip E3 2019.

    Ubisoft delivered some sad news today. Their open world pirate themed naval combat game, Skull & Bones, has been delayed until at least mid-2020. The team working on the game even delivered word today that they would be skipping E3 2019.

    Skull & Bones was initially revealed way back at E3 2017. More footage was revealed at E3 2018 and it was still looking pretty good. Last year came the first delay which pushed it into the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Today, that date has been pushed back yet again...

  • New 'Safe Haven' Cinematic for World of Warcraft

    New 'Safe Haven' Cinematic for World of Warcraft

    Hey look, it's Thrall!

    Blizzard released a new cinematic video today for World of Warcraft. We see Varok Saurfang paying a visit to an old leader of the Horde. This particular cinematic is for the Rise of Azshara content update (8.2) for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. This new content update includes features like equipment slots on mounts, new zones (Nazjatar & Mechagon), a new raid (Azshara's Eternal Palace), and more.

    Now, can someone explain to me why Blizzard just hasn't made their own full-length film yet? Because it seems like...

  • 'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    It's probably DOTA Auto Chess.

    Valve was given a new trademark this week. This trademark is for an upcoming "computer game" called DOTA Underlords. Literally nothing else is known about this title. There is speculation that it may be the name of Valve's standalone release of DOTA Auto Chess, but that's as much of a guess as anything else.

    For all we know, it could be a VR title, something to do with Artifact, or something completely unexpected....
