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.

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...

  • Goku Coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ in May

    Goku Coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ in May


    Goku from the Dragon Ball GT series will be coming this May to Dragon Ball FighterZ. Specifically, May 9 is the day in which Goku arrives to lay some smack down on all challengers. Goku is part of the FighterZ Pass 2 which is going for $24.99 (USD).

    I assume he will be sold separately, but I do not know for sure. I also don't know how much it may cost you if you purchase him separately. If you do get the FighterZ Pass, you'll also get six already released characters plus some additional Dragon Ball fighters such as Gogeta (SSGSS) and Broly (DBS). Huh. I wonder who they got to voice Broly for this. ...

Notably, players can now actually change their gear during missions, strongholds, and during Freeplay without having to return to Fort Tarsis or the Launch Bay.

    Awesome! Seriously, this was desperately needed.

    In addition to this, BioWare added in a new stronghold for players to dive into today. It's called The Sunken Cell and is tailored to those that have completed the main...

    Call of Duty 'Partners' Played the New Call of Duty and You Didn't


    A private event was held today wherein a number of college football players and various "Call of Duty Partners" got to play the new Call of Duty title. Charlie Intel gathered up a bunch of these social media postings from all these #CallofDutyPartners on Twitter and Instagram. You can see a few of the tweets embedded below.

    Really, that's kind of all there is to pull from today's event. Nobody has spilled any beans and I'm sure all of these people are under a strict non-disclosure agreement and/or an embargo of some sort. The social media...

    As we have talked about numerous times, World War Z is a co-op focused, third-person shooter in the...

    So far, most professional critics have largely praised the game with the exception being the already mentioned economy grind. Users, on the other hand, have decided that the game...

  • Days Gone New Gameplay Trailer Arrives Ahead of Launch

    Days Gone New Gameplay Trailer Arrives Ahead of Launch


    A final look at Days Gone arrives just days ahead of its PS4 launch later this week.

    Announced all the way back at E3 2016, Days Gone is finally ready to see the light of day on the PlayStation 4. As such, Sony and Bend Studio released a new, and final, gameplay trailer for Days Gone. The trailer aims to show off just one more glimpse of the world players will strive to survive in on April 26, 2019.
