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...

    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.
