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...

    Raids in Destiny Will Not Support Random Player Matchmaking

    If you want to do a raid in the full version of Destiny, you better have five friends ready to go. Bungie said that there will be no matchmaking with random players when it comes to in-game raids.

    Following the sale of Crytek UK and the Homefront IP to Deep Silver, Crytek revealed some major restructuring throughout a few of their other studios. Hardest hit are the remains of Crytek UK and Crytek Austin.

    Crytek UK might not be that doomed as Deep Silver is looking to acquire staff for their new studio, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. The good news here is that most of those that were at Crytek UK are making the move to the Deep Silver studio to continue work on Homefront: The Revolution. The actual number of people making the move has not...

    Sony Doesn't Feel EA Access Provides a "Good Value to the PlayStation Gamer"

    "Why is EA Access only on the Xbox platform," seems to be the question of the week for many gamers. If nothing else, surely it would also be on the PlayStation platform as well, right?

    Unfortunately, Sony feels as though EA's subscription based service doesn't add a "good value" for PlayStation gamers out there. A Sony representative provided the following statement to Game Informer.
    "We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect. PlayStation

  • Deep Silver Buys Homefront IP from Crytek

    Deep Silver Buys Homefront IP from Crytek

    In a move that should help Crytek out financially for the short term, they have sold the Homefront IP to Koch Media, the parent company of Deep Silver. This sale will see Crytek UK turn into Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. It should also hopefully mean that those still left at the former Crytek UK will finally start to get paid again.

    Koch has stated that development on Homefront: The Revolution will continue at Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. Hasit Zala had left Crytek UK a few weeks ago as the former Director of the game, is heading up the new...

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Reveal on August 11

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Reveal on August 11

    On August 11 at 10AM (PT), the multiplayer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be revealed to the world.

    You will be able to watch at the Call of Duty website. The event will (I assume from this wording) be presented live from gamescom 2014. It will also (I am again assuming based on the above image) be presented through Xbox Live since Activision and Microsoft are fairly cozy when it comes to this series.
