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.

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...

  • Planet Coaster By Former RollerCoaster Tycoon Developers is the Spiritual Sequel You Wanted

    Back in the day, a studio called Frontier Developments worked on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. Since then they went on to work on a number of titles including Screamride for the Xbox and now Planet Coaster for the PC. This is perhaps everyone's best bet when it comes to a spiritual successor to RCT3, because there are probably no other developers more qualified to give that to you than the people who actually made RCT3.

    There are a bunch of pre-order options for you to take a look at. Pre-order prices start around $30 (USD).

    LEGO Dimensions' Portal Trailer is About as Awesome as You Would Think

    A new trailer came out this week for LEGO Dimensions that focuses solely on the Portal component to the game. Yes, Portal, the game. "The cake is a lie" Portal. That one.

    The trailer features the one and only GLaDOS as she does what she does best, mock you.

The game is slated to be released this September for the PS3, PS4, 360, XB1, and Wii U.
