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.

Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

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...

    Exo Zombies Havoc Trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

    The longer cut of the Exo Zombies Havoc trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was released a very short time ago by Sledgehammer and Activision today. There's some really insane looking things going on in this trailer, the least of which is John Malkovich.


    Naturally, Xbox owners get the DLC first on January 27. The rest of the world has to wait for an undisclosed later date. I'm guessing it's going to be at least another month of waiting while that gloriously lame exclusivity period is in effect!...
