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.

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.

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...

  • EA Teases Titanfall 2 as Not Being an Xbox Exclusive

    EA Teases Titanfall 2 as Not Being an Xbox Exclusive

    Remember Titanfall? Remember how all of those PlayStation owners got to play that game? Yeah, that didn't happen because Titanfall was an Xbox exclusive and only came out on the One, 360, and PC. Perhaps EA realized what a bad idea that was because rumors of the totally not yet announced Titanfall 2 seem to indicate that the game will not be exclusive to the Xbox platform! Horray! In speaking at the 2015 Technology, Internet and Media Conference, EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen spoke briefly about the still totally not yet announced Titanfall 2 and what their plans are w...

  • Op-Ed: Here is Why the Battlefield Hardline Beta Did Not Sell Me on the Game

    Op-Ed: Here is Why the Battlefield Hardline Beta Did Not Sell Me on the Game

    The latest Battlefield Hardline beta has come and gone (at least by the time you read this). Undoubtedly, the beta will have sold fence sitters on purchasing the game while others have probably decided to save their $60 for another time. Hardline finds Visceral Games at the helm, leaving DICE to presumably work on Star Wars: Battlefront. Thus the question lingering in the air is if the developer known best for the Dead Space franchise could capture the magic that made the Battlefield franchise the powerhouse it once was. So, did they? Did Visceral manage to create a...

    New Asteroids Game is a Sandbox Survival Game

    Remember Asteroids?


    Yeah, that game right there. It's an iconic game from the late 70's. It's difficult not to know what Asteroids is. Now take that, but turn it into a sandbox survival game. That's precisely what Atari is doing with Asteroids: Outpost. According to the studio, the game will take place on a giant asteroid. Players will search out resources, craft their gear, and build a base.

    Players will also have to defend that base from other players. What about actually shooting asteroids? Yeah, that's still in...
