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 Issues Insultingly Pathetic Statement About Blitzchung Suspension and Reasoning

The cowards just doubled down.

Taking a page from politicians and businesses that know late on Friday is the best time to release news that you are positively ashamed to share, Blizzard has finally issued a statement about the recent ban on Blitzchung and two Hearthstone casters.

Before we get into it all, let's just read what they have to say. Here is Blizzard's full statement as it currently appears on their website.

Despite a reduction of six months for the suspension, Blizzard is still punishing Blitzchung. The...

Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

A new report from VGC says that Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE) is undergoing a "restructuring" of several areas at the company, including marketing and PR. VGC says that they were informed of this unfortunate news from "people with knowledge of the situation."

As if that wasn't bad enough, VGC's report says that SIEE employees were informed about when American PlayStation directors visited SIEE in their London location. Those employees who were impacted by these layoffs...

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...

  • Dark Souls 3 Allegedly Coming Early 2016 Says IGN

    Dark Souls 3 Allegedly Coming Early 2016 Says IGN

    There was a recent rumor started by the folks over at The Know that said Dark Souls 3 was in development. They even included some supposedly leaked images from the game that they somehow obtained (see bottom). Given how their last big rumor was immediately debunked and denied by Microsoft, there was much doubt that this rumor was actually true.

    Today, IGN obtained a separate piece of media for Dark Souls 3 that seems to promote the fact that it will be out in "Early 2016."

    Again, the game hasn't actually been announced yet, but given h...

  • Microsoft Announces 1TB Xbox One and New Controller

    Microsoft Announces 1TB Xbox One and New Controller

    Microsoft came out and officially announced a new 1TB Xbox One console today along with a new Xbox One controller. This news was expected to be revealed at E3 but apparently Microsoft just didn't want to wait. The 1TB model will begin to ship to retail outlets on June 16 in the United states "and select markets later this month." The price will be $399 (USD). In addition to this, the $349 price on the 5009GB models is now standard, which should come as a shock to literally nobody. Now, as for that new Xbox One wireless controller, what new features can you exp...

  • Rumor: Next Destiny DLC The Taken King Dated for September 15 and Priced at $40

    Kotaku has the latest rumor concerning the still unannounced next expansion or DLC for Destiny. We previously saw Red Bull spill the beans on the name of the DLC, The Taken King, but now a source has added in a few additional details. According to the source, the new expansion will be released on September 15, 2015 and will be priced at $40 (USD). Yes, $40. What are you expected to get at that seemingly insane price tag? So far, not much. The rumor says that this expansion will offer up a new subclass for each of the game's three main classes. This wil...

    Apple Announces Metal Development Platform for Mac

    Promising a 40% greater rendering efficiency, Apple today announced their Metal development platform along with Metal for Mac.
    "Metal is a core graphics technology that gives apps near-direct access to the GPU. This means faster and more efficient rendering performance across the system," said Apple.
    Yes, in its simplest form it's a lot like ATI's Mantle technology. In fact, the names are also quite similar to one another. During today's presentation at WWDC, Apple brought up on stage Epic's Billy Bramer, the lead programmer on ...

  • Actual Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Reveal Coming at E3

    Actual Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Reveal Coming at E3

    Today's big Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 reveal wasn't much of a reveal at all. Even as far as teasers go, it was quite lame. All it ended up being as a video saying that you should watch Microsoft's Xbox E3 2015 press conference for the exclusive worldwide reveal. Hopefully it won't be some lame timed exclusive again on the Xbox platform, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one.

    This is literally all that was shown off today.

  • Super Meat Boy Coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita, Free for PlayStation Plus Members

    Team Meat, Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, announced today that Super Meat Boy is finally coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game has long been in the works for Sony's platforms and was actually slated to come out for the PS3 originally. As a way of saying "thank you for waiting patiently," the duo are going to release the game for free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers when it comes out. When exactly is it coming out? No idea, but it will be at some point in 2015. There were a couple of screens revealed alongside a bizarre announcement ...

  • NSFW: Uwe Boll Swears off Crowdfunding While Swearing AT His Fans and Hollywood

    Uwe Boll had yet another failed Kickstarter. This latest was to try to get Rampage 3 funded. If you don't know what the Rampage series is, I wouldn't worry too much about it. This marked his third failed crowdfunding campaign in a row. Plus, since he can no longer rely on jumping through dodgy German tax loopholes to get his films funded, it looks like the Postal director is calling it quits.

    He's also calling you a lot of bad names. Behold, Uwe Boll's finest work to date!

    never will do crowdfunding again .... thanks

  • Vice City Imported to Grand Theft Auto V

    Vice City Imported to Grand Theft Auto V

    There is an ongoing project for Grand Theft Auto V that looks to create a bunch of nifty tools and custom content for online communities to use. These tools and assets will eventually lead to custom multiplayer servers with custom game modes and all kinds of custom goodies. That's the super simplified version of what FiveM is all about. From the looks of things, one of those custom projects is importing old GTA worlds into the Grand Theft Auto V engine. I've already seen bits and pieces of the older games working but none seem to be quite as complete as this Vic...
