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.

PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

Sony dishes more details about their next-gen console and controller.

Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

You walk as though you are drunk all the time. You see shadows and imagine them to be big, scary monsters. Your favorite stuffed animal just starts talking to you like it's nothing out of the ordinary. Really, it's a rather difficult time in your life!

    Krillbite Studio took this idea and ran with it for Among the Sleep. You are placed into the padded PJ's of a toddler. Your reach...
