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.

  • Games Using Invasive DRM Methods SafeDisc and Securom Won't Run on Windows 10

    Over at Rock Paper Shotgun is word that Windows 10 will not run any games that make use of either SafeDisc or Securom DRM methods.

    I can at least attest to games like BioShock, Mercenaries 2, and Fallout 3 working just fine with their digital counterparts since I have played all three on...
