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...

  • Devil May Cry 5 is Out Now

    Devil May Cry 5 is Out Now


    Fans of the franchise are already well aware, but for the rest of us: Devil May Cry 5 is now available globally. This is the latest in the long-running Capcom developed franchise that saw its peak back with 2013's highly rated DmC: Devil May Cry. This was a game that scored better than the previous three releases.

    Actually, according to reviews, the franchise peaked at the very first game, but it's more amusing to say DmC was the best game out of all of them.

    Devil May Cry 5 continues the story of Dante, Nero, and Vergil starting at a...

    Rage 2 Showcases Combo System in New Superhero Trailer


    Rage 2 media has already displayed a long list of ways in which enemies can meet their demise at the hands of you, the player. The latest trailer is no different. In fact, it amps up the murderous mayhem, and the volume, up to around 11. This new trailer shows off some of the violent combos you can carry out against the baddies of the wild-wasteland.

    You will be able to toy with gravity in Rage 2. Use your skills to send foes up into spinning blades or bring them together just to blow them up, or punch them, or set them on fire. I guess Rage 2 really...

  • Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles

    Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


    Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

    The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio....

  • EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019

    EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


    EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

    EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft...

  • Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April

    Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April


    The cardboard industry is about to get another big boom in April. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for the Nintendo Switch this week. It's slated to hit stores on April 12 and includes a basic kit, a big kit, and two optional expansions.

    From the descriptions of the kit, it sounds a lot like Google Cardboard with the added benefit of having various motion controls added in via the Switch Controllers. For kids, it's probably going to be amazing.

    As with the other Labo kits, you will have to build the VR Kit following the provided...

  • Players Discover that Anthem's Most Powerful Weapons are the Ones You Start With


    Today, a little "PSA" went up on the Anthem subreddit that says clearly that the level 1 weapons players start the game with are the most powerful weapons in the game.

    If you think that doesn't make much sense, you would be correct but there are multiple confirmations showing that this is indeed what is going on. Reddit user YeetLordSupreme found that a level 1 common Defender rifle can take down a basic enemy in just four shots. Meanwhile, they found that their level 45 masterwork "Ralner's Blaze" rifle takes six shots to take down the very same enemy.

    This is in spite of the basic weapon showing damage of just 286 per shot compared to the 1184 damage per shot with the level 45 weapon. ...

  • Judgment to Release in Americas and Europe on June 25

    Judgment to Release in Americas and Europe on June 25


    Late last night, Sega announced that Judgment will be released in the Americas and throughout Europe on June 25. This reveal came last night via Twitter along with a few additional details about a pre-order bonus.

    Fans of the Yakuza games will want to keep an eye on this one. Why's that? Because it's set in the same world as the Yakuza franchise, made by the same developers, and contains some of the same gameplay elements. However, this is not a Yakuza game, it's merely a spin-off.

    You play as detective Takayuki Yagami who is investigating...

  • Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam

    Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam


    It took some time, but Valve has finally decided that a visual novel "game" about raping women during a zombie apocalypse maybe isn't a good fit for Steam.

    The game is (was?) called Rape Day and the premise is pretty much what I said in the line above. The game glorified verbally harassing women, killing them, and raping them throughout the story. The game was under review from Valve and, after multiple articles went up about the game, did Valve see fit to pull its existence from Steam.

    To be clear, Rape Day was never up for...
