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.

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.

A small group of Activision-Blizzard employees staged a walkout on Tuesday afternoon of this week to protest against 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...

    Remember when Microsoft invited everyone out to the Alamogordo Landfill to search for the buried cartridges of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600? Remember how everyone sort of expected it just to remain a legend and that nothing would be found?

    Well, they found it. And by "it" I mean they found the buried cartridges. Lots of them.


    A documentary film production company has found buried in a New Mexico landfill hundreds of the Atari "E.T." game cartridges that some call the worst video game ever made.

    Official Xbox Magazine Comes to an End

    After a near 13 year run, the Official Xbox Magazine is coming to an end. Former Official Xbox Magazine employee and current Editor at IGN, Ryan McCaffrey, offers his personal thoughts on this closure and apparent abrupt end to the run of the magazine.
