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.

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...

    Dota 2 The International 4 - Day 2 Recap

    The second day of playoff rounds for The International 4 concluded and is in the books. The big winner on the day if ViCi, which sits at a 7-1 record. The worst performer was Arrow, which ended up the day at 2-8. Valve notes that if ViCi loses the rest of their playoff matches, they'll end up at 7-8. On the flip side, if Arrow wins the rest of their matches, they will also be 7-8. Is that record good enough to move on? It very well could be as all it takes is being in the top two teams to move on to the main event or being in the top 8 to move on to phase three...
