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.

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...

    Trials Fusion on Xbox One Runs at 900p with PS4 Version at 1080p

    Trials Fusion doesn't exactly look like the most graphically demanding game out there and yet here we are with another resolution difference between the two current consoles.

    Ubisoft has confirmed that the Xbox One version of the game will run at 60fps across all platforms, those being the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, it will not run at the same resolution. The PS4 version will run at 1080p while the Xbone version runs at 900p. This isn't the first time a cross-platform game had different resolutions for this genera...

  • Below Shifts from Xbox One Exclusive to a PC and Xbox Release

    Below Shifts from Xbox One Exclusive to a PC and Xbox Release

    Below from Capybara Games was slated to be one of Xbox One's major Indie showpieces. That was until very recently when the studio revealed that the game will also be coming to PC through Steam.


    Below is a roguelike (tired of that term yet?) that will find the player making their way through a variety of procedurally generated levels. As with any good roguelike, death is permanent.

    The super stylized title is playable this weekend at PAX East, so be sure to check it out if you're in attendance....

  • Rumor: Steam Controller Available in October or November

    Rumor: Steam Controller Available in October or November

    A source close to PC Gamer has informed them that Valve's Steam Controller will be released in either October or November of 2014. This claim comes from a "trusted hardware source with knowledge of Valve's Steam Machines." Their source continued on to say that the completion of the controller would be the "final piece that would precede the availability of most Steam Machines." That seems to indicate that the Steam Machines themselves would then start to roll out at the end of 2014. Finally, the source also said that they expect "about 500" games to be nativ...

  • Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Gameplay Footage from PAX East

    Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Gameplay Footage from PAX East

    Last night, Roberts Space Industries held a live PAX East 2014 event to show off the upcoming dogfighting module for Star Citizen. Given the super alpha nature of the game, it didn't go quite as expected. There were crashes, both of the ship and of the game itself. However, a compilation of gameplay footage was gathered from the event from the live stream that should give gamers an idea of what the module will be like when it's released soon to backers. It's suggested you skip to around the 3:16 mark in the video to enjoy the footage. Unfortunately, there's not...
