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.

Taking a page from politicians and businesses that know late on Friday is the best time to release news that you are positively ashamed to share, Blizzard has finally issued a statement about the recent ban on Blitzchung and two Hearthstone casters.

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...

  • Rust is Still in Development Despite One Guy at Facepunch Working on a Prototype Game

    Gaming communities can be full of idiots. I'm not going to sugar coat that fact. The latest to suffer from such a community is Facepunch Studios. Recently, one of the employees, Adam Woolridge, revealed a prototype game, Riftlight, that he alone is working on. Suddenly, the Rust community loses their collective minds and begin to pick up pitchforks against Facepunch for not delivering a finished product in Rust. They are upset that Rust development is somehow taking a back seat now. They make accusations that Rust is now cancelled because of the reveal ...

  • Digital Foundry Examines The Last of Us Remastered and Framerate

    Digital Foundry Examines The Last of Us Remastered and Framerate

    The latest "Digital Foundry vs." feature takes a hard look at The Last of Us Remastered. One of the big promises for the release is that the game will have an unlocked framerate that will hit the sweet 60fps. Just how often does it hit that magical number, though?
    To answer the question everyone's been asking, frame-rate isn't locked to 60fps, but The Last of Us Remastered does spend the vast majority of its time at the optimal refresh. Problems can kick in during busy combat scenes, and just like the PS3 version, particles and transparent effects in particular

  • New-ish Story Trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord

    New-ish Story Trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord

    I seem to have let this one slip by this weekend. However, at the San Diego Comic-Con a new story trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was shown off by WBIE. You can check out that new trailer below as it takes a look at "The Bright Lord."

    The new trailer reveals many new story details for the game, including the identity of the mysterious Wraith bound to protagonist Talion, as well as his connection to the Rings of Power and the Dark Lord, Sauron. As Talion and the Wraith follow a promising trail, they find a series of ancient artifacts t

  • Another Look at The Crew PC Beta - City Hopping and Missions

    Another Look at The Crew PC Beta - City Hopping and Missions

    In this second part of the "look at" the PC beta for Ubisoft's open world racing game, The Crew, I hop to a few different cities and show you how missions are structured. In addition, I also share just how wonderful the mic quality is thanks to everyone having always open mics! From the looks of it, the closed beta period for The Crew on PC has come to a close. As such, there will be no more preview videos of the game from me. There probably wouldn't be any more videos from me anyway, largely because I just wasn't having much fun with it and was going to st...
