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...

    A Chinese retailer may have accidentally revealed some of the characters and figurines slated to arrive with Disney Infinity 3.0. Some of these include Mulan, Olaf from Frozen, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Sam Flynn from Tron, Quorra also from Tron, and various Star Wars characters.

    Dead Island 2 Delayed Until 2016

    Yager announced today that Dead Island 2 has been pushed back to a 2016 release.
    "We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island - multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee - and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that. And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in Spring 2015. "We have been looking at

  • People Are Scumbags - Ebay Listings Pop Up for PlayStation 4 Consoles with P.T. Installed

    In case you needed to be reminded, people are scumbags. A number of "ultra rare" and "exclusive" listings cropped up over the day from people selling their PlayStation 4 consoles with P.T. installed on the hard drive.
