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.

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.

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

  • Report: Halo: The Master Chief Collection Includes HD Versions of Halo 1-4 on Xbox One

    The Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been rumored through anonymous sources with Engadget. As you may expect from the name, the collection will include HD versions of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.

    This is to build up towards the release of Halo 5: Guardians next year. So where are games like Halo: ODST and Halo: Reach? Well, those games aren't a part of Master Chief's main story so it wouldn't make much sense to include those in with the "Master Chief Collection" of games. If true, that certainly takes the wind out of...
