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...

  • Razer to Pay the Unpaid Developers From Ouya's Free the Games Marketing Program

    Ouya has a program called "Free the Games" that essentially allowed Ouya to give out some games for free to Ouya consumers with the promise that Ouya themselves would pay the developers later on. Problem was, Ouya went the way of the Dodo. Prior to that happening, Ouya crafted a new agreement that essentially said they had no responsibility to pay anything owed to the developers of those games should Ouya go bankrupt. Well, Ouya went bankrupt and thus left roughly $620,000 unpaid towards developers. The developers are, understandably, upset. Along comes Razer...

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    When Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out, it was largely praised with the exception of the boss fights. No matter how you played the game, the boss fights were nothing more than actual fights with little to no means of utilizing stealth or any of your non-lethal abilities. That was somewhat fixed in the GOTY edition but it wasn't as good as it could have been.

    Now, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks like it will allow you to tackle bosses to suit your play style. The latest issue of OXM has a nice bit of information from Gameplay Director Patrick...

  • China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    At long last, China is lifting its ban on making and selling video game consoles within its borders. This will now allow companies like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft to sell their consoles to retailers who can then sell the systems to end consumers, something that they haven't been able to do since 2000 when these restrictions first went into place. Prior to this move, China restricted the sell of game consoles to a small area called the Shanghai Free Trade Zone. Now, they are free to make and sell consoles throughout the entirety of China. ...
