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 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.

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...

  • Analyst Predicts Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to Ship 3 Million Fewer Copies Compared to Ghosts

    Arvind Bhatia, from the research firm Sterne Agee, predicts that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare may ship upwards of 3 million fewer units when compared to Call of Duty: Ghosts. Specifically, they suggest that the game will ship 15% fewer copies than Ghosts, which shipped 20 million units in the fourth quarter of 2013.

  • Destiny - The Story that Could Have Been and Some Interesting Marketing Materials

    First thing is first, Activision and Bungie have put together an "accolades" commercial for Destiny. What do you do though when the game doesn't review as well as you had hoped? Well, you start to look for sites that aren't the usual "go to" sites for scores to use.

    That's certainly one way to put a bit of a spin on the accolades trailer. Unfortunately, it's not all lighthearted laughs today in the world of Bungie and Destiny. It seems as though, from at least one unconfirmed report, that the story back 2013 was much, much different than what t...
