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...

    Microsoft Reportedly Releasing an All-Digital Xbox One in May


    The "all digital future" may be closer than you think if a new rumor is to be believed. According to Brad Sams from Thurrott.com, Microsoft is getting ready to release an Xbox One S console that doesn't have a disc drive.

    Sams says that the internal codename for this device is "Xbox Maverick" with the public facing name being "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition." Pre-orders are apparently slated to go live mid-April with a release possibly coming as early as May.

    Beyond being able to purchase games directly through...

  • The Division 2 Launch Trailer

    The Division 2 Launch Trailer


    With Tom Clancy's The Division 2 coming out in just 10 days (March 15, 2019), it seems like a wholly appropriate time for a launch trailer. On March 15th, The Division 2 will take PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players to our nation's capital, Washington, D.C.

    You can pick up The Division 2 for the PC from either the Epic Games Store (affiliate link) or from the Ubisoft Store. As it stands, The Division 2 is sadly not available through Steam. ...

    Destiny 2 'Season of the Drifter' Update 2.2.0 Changelog

    We all drift down here.


    That's right, Destiny 2's "Season of the Drifter" is out today and that means a new update for the game has come out. Today, Bungie released the 2.2.0 update that contains all sorts of changes and additions and probably nerfs to your favorite class that used to be able to skate around at mach speeds but can no longer do so because "screw you, Zips!"

    What was I saying?

    Oh right, Season of the Drifter is the latest content release for Destiny 2. Let's just look at the changelog before I forget what I was doing again. ...

    Watch the One Piece World Seeker Opening Cutscene

    Or don't. I'm not your boss.


    There is a new video out today for One Piece World Seeker courtesy of Bandai Namco. The new video isn't like a normal trailer. It is instead the opening video to the game. Players will get to find out how "Luffy and his friends' adventure kicks off."

    For those unaware, you control one Monkey D. Luffy (that's seriously his name?) as he explores the dreaded Prison Island. Prison Island, for those who don't know, has been wrecked by war and is being rebuilt under the "watchful eye of the Navy."...

    THQ CEO Offers Largely Hollow Apology Following Disgusting AMA


    It's been roughly one week since THQ Nordic GmbH decided to do an AMA on 8chan, a site that is best known for allegations that they host and link to suspected child pornography, a site that contains rampant racism, a site that engages in harassment campaigns, and a site that engages in doxxing. These are just a few of their most notable "issues." Again, it's a place where people go when even 4chan thinks they're too fucked up.

    It took THQ Nordic over 15 hours to remove the link to 8chan from their Twitter timeline. That's 15 hours that a...

  • Apex Legends Surpasses 50 Million Players and 1 Mozambique Kill

    Apex Legends Surpasses 50 Million Players and 1 Mozambique Kill


    It feels like less than a month ago when we found out that Apex Legends was sitting at over 25 million players. Oh, it was less than a month ago when that news popped up. Today, the team at Respawn Entertainment announced that they have now surpassed 50 million unique players.

    If you do the math, that's about... carry the 1, divide the 0... yeah, that's double what they were at back on February 11. There isn't too much else to add here. In case you don't know, Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game from Respawn Entertainment. Right now the...

  • DICE Buffs Shotguns in March 5 Update for Battlefield 5

    DICE Buffs Shotguns in March 5 Update for Battlefield 5


    DICE has already provided the patch notes for the Battlefield V update that is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, March 5. This is "Update #4" for Battlefield V Tides of War Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes. Yeah, their naming conventions on these updates are a bit annoying, I agree.

    Of the changes included in this update, we're going to see an overall buff to the shotguns in the game. DICE somehow came to the conclusion that they were now weaker than SMGs? I, uh, hm... well, that's one way to look at it. You can either read the changes via...

  • Sony Reportedly Offering Full Refunds on Anthem for Some PlayStation 4 Users

    Sony Reportedly Offering Full Refunds on Anthem for Some PlayStation 4 Users


    Despite Sony having one of the most strict refund policies around, it seems as though they are making some exceptions for Anthem on the PlayStation 4. Crashes and bugs aren't really all that uncommon for games these days. However, Anthem seems to be taking things a step further by completely turning off the PlayStation 4 in some instances.

    This Reddit thread made just a few hours ago is just one of many reports of this particular issue happening to someone. A couple of users replied that they managed to do the unthinkable and received a full refund...

  • Chris Avellone Wraps Up Work on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order; Teases Another Project


    Earlier today, game designer and noted writer Chris Avellone revealed that he recently finished working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

    If you recall from yesterday's news, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the latest Star Wars title that EA is getting ready to publish. Unlike other Star Wars titles released in the past couple of years, this one isn't being developed by DICE but is instead being developed by Respawn Entertainment.

    For those who are wondering why this is exciting news, you need only look at Avellone's previous work to understand....
