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.

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.

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...

  • The Crew to Run at 1080p and 30FPS on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

    The Crew to Run at 1080p and 30FPS on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

    Ubisoft has confirmed that their online only racing title, The Crew, will run at a 1080p resolution but only at 30FPS on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

    If you thought that the 30 frames per second was bad, you may not find much comfort in what Creative Director Julian Gerighty continued on to say.
    (Ivory Tower is) "really trying to get parity across all versions, so it's something that's important to us not to branch out and not do individual things for individual platforms."
    That may very well indicate that the PC version of the game...

  • Stardock CEO Claims that DirectX 12 Will Double Xbox One GPU Performance

    Stardock CEO Claims that DirectX 12 Will Double Xbox One GPU Performance

    In an article written for Neowin, the CEO and Founder of Stardock, Brad Wardell, claims that when DirectX 12 finally ships in late 2015, it will result in a "doubling of performance" across identical hardware.
    The results are spectacular. Not just in theory but in practice (full disclosure: I am involved with the Star Swarm demo which makes use of this kind of technology.) While each generation of video card struggles to gain substantial performance over the previous generation, here, the same hardware will suddenly see a doubling of performance. XB

    GeForce 337.50 Beta Driver Offers Up to 71% Performance Gains in DirectX 11

    Nvidia released the 337.50 beta drivers today that promise some rather significant gains for DirectX 11 titles and SLI performance.
    By remaining laser-focused on DirectX 11 (and the forthcoming DirectX 12), we have dramatically enhanced the efficiency of our DirectX 11 driver, enabling performance gains of up to 71% in DirectX 11 games, and additional benefits in games with multi-GPU SLI support. Unlike changes tailored around custom graphics APIs, our new optimizations can benefit all DirectX 11 titles the second they go on sale, regardless of developer or publisher,
