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.

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...

  • 343 Delays Content Update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Re-Evaluates Need for Beta Testing

    Due to the still ongoing issues plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 343 Industries has decided to postpone the next content update for the game. This also means that the patch associated with it needs some "additional time and testing" prior to being released.

    This patch is supposed to include fixes for matchmaking search times, match search successes, improve lobby functionality, hit registration, matchmaking ranking, and more. Oddly enough, the studio is also rethinking its plans on the need for a public beta to test patches prior to release. ...

  • Treyarch Teasing New Zombies Reveal at DICE

    Treyarch Teasing New Zombies Reveal at DICE

    On Wednesday, Treyarch will make some sort of a reveal concerning zombies during their DICE presentation. Treyarch is the studio working on this year's Call of Duty title, so it should probably come as no surprise that there will probably be a zombie game mode included.

    Then again, it is entirely possible that this will be an entirely separate game. Hell, it might even be the entire premise for the next Call of Duty game. Who knows at this point!

    Their Tweet making the announcement included this image. It clearly shows a Perk-a-Cola on...

  • Game Industry: Sega Cuts 300 Jobs, Joystiq Closes, Monty Oum Hospitalized, Andrew Yoon Passes Away

    It hasn't been a great day today in the gaming industry. In fact, you may even say that this might be one of the worst days for the industry in recent memory. It was announced earlier that AOL is cutting about 150 jobs. This means that Joystiq, as we knew it, will effectively cease operations. What remains of Joystiq will then be integrated into Engadget. It was also announced today that Sega will cut around 300 jobs as part of a "restructuring" process. The company is making the move as they see the industry moving towards a more digital future.

    Bloodborne PS4 Bundle Confirmed for Europe; New 'Chalice Dungeon' Video

    Sony has confirmed that Europe will get a special PlayStation 4 bundle with Bloodborne. This includes a black PS4, a black controller, and a copy of the game. So really, it's kind of a no extra frills bundle but it's still an option for consumers.

    Next, From Software decided to show off another look at the Chalice Dungeon. This "dungeon" is massive and seemingly randomly generated.
