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.

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.

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...

    First Ever Teaser Image for Call of Duty 2014

    Sledgehammer Games, during their GDC 2014 panel, revealed the first-ever look at the 2014 release of Call of Duty. It's not much, but it's all that we have right now. IGN has the image, seen below, that shows off "actual in-game characters."


    According to Activision, the game is targeting "next-gen first," which I assume to mean the current-gen consoles of Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Next-gen consoles are still a few years out....

    The hits just keep on coming for Naughty Dog, and I'm not talking about big blockbuster releases. Earlier today, it was revealed that Nate Wells left the studio to work at Giant Sparrow. Now, it seems that writer and actor Todd Stashwick has also left the studio.

    He has moved on to working at Visceral Games as the co-writer for their Star Wars project, the same one Amy Hennig is directing. Stashwick was the voice you heard in the Uncharted for PS4 teaser from about five months ago. You can see that video below if you need a refresher. So, why di...

    Nintendo Being Sued Over Wii U Patent Dispute

    Texas based company, Secure Axcess, has filed a lawsuit against Nintendo claiming that the company is infringing on a patent it filed in 2000 for "multiscreen personal computer display method apparatus." As you can probably already tell, the lawsuit's main focus is on the Wii U and its use of the Wii U gamepad. The lawsuit goes beyond Nintendo, however, as Secure Axcess is also targeting retailers such as GameStop, Target, and Amazon for selling the device without a "license or authorization." This isn't Nintendo's first rodeo with patent disputes. They ...
