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.

Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

  • Valve Doesn't Deny the Existence of Half-Life 3; Says HL3 Won't be a VR Game

    Valve Doesn't Deny the Existence of Half-Life 3; Says HL3 Won't be a VR Game

    That title is a crime against nature but stick with me here. Valve's Chet Faliszek gave a talk about virtual reality at EGX, after which came a Q&A session. Someone asked him simply if Half-Life 3 would be a VR game.

    Faliszek responded simply with, "no."

    Faliszek then went on to talk about how VR headsets wouldn't be wireless any time soon. Afterwards, the same person asked him once again if Half-Life 3 would be a VR game.

    The response was, "I said 'no'." This response was apparently said jokingly, according to VG247. A joking...
