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.

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.

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...

    Titanfall and PlayStation 4 Top the NPD Charts for March

    Sure, Microsoft may have sold 311,000 Xbox One consoles to retailers in March, but the PlayStation 4 still sold more units. This is according to the latest NPD figures and a breakdown from GI.biz.

    On the hardware side of things, the PlayStation 4 "led hardware sales despite the Xbox One exclusive Titanfall topping the games chart." That means the PS4 sold above the 311,000 units that Microsoft moved with the Xbox One and managed to do so despite the release of Titanfall and a number of retailer specific price reductions on the console. Year over y...

    Xbox One Has Shipped 5 Million Units to Retailers

    Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox One has shipped over 5 million units to retailers since its launch. That again is a figure that has shipped to retailers but not necessarily sold to consumers.

They sold 311,000 units through the month, while the Xbox 360 sold 111,000 units. They also note that, on average, there are 2.9 games sold per Xbox One console.

    VHS Tapes Used to Achieve the Low-fi Look in Alien: Isolation

    The above video from GameSpot for Alien: Isolation shows off how the team managed to achieve "low-fi sci-fi." That is to say, the team actually recorded game elements and UI elements to VHS tape, messed with the cables, imported that back into the game environment and what resulted was pure 1970's magic.

    That's actually really awesome....

    The Most Popular and Least Popular Steam Games Discovered

    Art Technica put together a list of some of the most popular and some of the least popular games on Steam. They go on a bit about how they gathered the data but that's a bit boring. I mean, if you really want to know, you can head over to read their full article or simply look below for the interesting stuff outlined in the headline.

    As you can see, just because a game is registered to a lot of Steam accounts doesn't mean it's popular. Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, for instance, is the third-most popular game on the service by ownership, registered
