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. 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...

    Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is Out Now

    The latest from Ubisoft is here and it's mediocre.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is now available to everyone. While some players were able to play a few days ago, those that did not spring for the more pricey versions had to wait until today.

    Players are now free to explore the fictional land of Auroa on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Up to four players can join forces to take down Lt. Col. Cole D. Walker (Jon Bernthal) and his group of Wolves. Wolves in this case are a group of soldiers not, you know, actual wolves.

    Still, Call of Duty: Mobile was released on October 1, a mere three days ago. To have already hit 35 million downloads is still quite impressive. The game is a free download that...

    The Tiny Bang Story is Out Now on Nintendo Switch

    Solve puzzles in order to save a tiny planet.

    Ellada Games and developer Colibri Games just released The Tiny Bang Story today on the Nintendo Switch. This game tasks you with solving a bunch of puzzles, exploring, and trying to restore Tiny Planet after a meteor broke it into numerous puzzle-shaped pieces.

    The visuals are hand-drawn and have a certain charm to them. The game is being sold for just $9.99 (USD) for the Nintendo Switch. I don't know how long this game is but $10 for a game sounds pretty good.

    The Tiny Bang Story is...
