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.



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...

    SOMA Review

    ”Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” – Dr. Seuss

    SOMA takes everything you think you know about what “humanity” means and throws it into a blender. What is humanity? Are you human because you have the physical attributes we commonly associate with being a homo sapien? Are you a human because of higher-level thoughts and consciousness? If you remove one piece out of the complex grab bag of what we see humanity as, are we still actually human? SOMA presents these questions, and more, as you play throug...

  • CIG and Roberts Space Industries Refutes The Escapist's Slander and Threatens Legal Action

    The other day, Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) and Roberts Space Industries (RSI) came under attack by a slanderous hit piece from The Escapist. I wrote up my thoughts about that in our ever growing blog section. That was the latest in a series of events that saw notorious Internet "trolls" going after CIG and RSI without much in the way of facts. The Escapist doubled down on their claims, saying that their sources were verified by the site's legal component and that everything checked out. They are sticking to their article. "Not so fast," says RSI's legal counsel! Today, Ortw...

    No Man's Sky Segment from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

    This past Friday, Sean Murray from Hello Games went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to show off No Man's Sky to a national audience. The video below features the full interview alongside a demonstration of the game. It may not be new footage to you or I, but the people watching at home that may not be into video games, this was all new territory.

  • Skreens Adds Split-Screen Functionality to Any Game

    Skreens Adds Split-Screen Functionality to Any Game

    I received this press release a few days ago and opted to check it out later. Later ended up being about three days (whoops), but here we are. It was a mailing about something called Skreens, a device that combines multiple inputs into one output picture. This could be a very interesting way to have couch co-op in Halo 5, provided you own two Xbox One's and two copies of the game.

    What is Skreens? Skreens is a revolutionary way to experience all of your entertainment. Your gaming console, cable box, Blu-Ray, Roku, PC, Apple TV and anything else

    Frictional Games Talks SOMA, Sales Figures, and the Future

    First up, let's dive into how Frictional Games provided fans with a quick post-launch report on SOMA. In just 10 days, SOMA sold about 92,000 copies across every platform (PC and PlayStation 4). They say that just those number of sales will allow the company to pay their expenses for another two years. Sales have leveled out to be around 2,000 copies per day. Frictional Games even breaks down how that compares to their previous titles.
    How does this compare to our other releases? Well, Amnesia: The Dark Descent sold 30,000 copies in the first month (and
