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.

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...

  • 3D Realms Doesn't Know When to Call it Quits and Claims It Still Owns Duke Nukem

    In response to the lawsuit made against the company by Gearbox Software, 3D Realms claims that it still has the right to complete and sell a game called Duke Nukem Survivor.

    Duke Nukem Survivor is apparently the Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction game that's been mentioned recently.

    In addition, 3D Realms claims that Gearbox doesn't even own the trademark to "Duke Nukem" anyway. They claim it was never part of the Asset Purchase Agreement for Duke Nukem Forever. And so 3D Realms does not go quietly into that gentle night, but kicking and screami...

  • Microtransactions Made $352 Million on Consoles Last Year

    Microtransactions Made $352 Million on Consoles Last Year

    According to research conducted by Superdata, microtransactions accounted for $352 million in sales in 2013 just on consoles.

    Until now, several barriers contributed to the slow adoption of microtransactions on console: audience expectations, payment preferences and available options, game inventory. The retail model of shelling out $60 for a game has long been the dominant monetization method for consoles. Likewise, the system of first having to convert real money into, for example, Xbox Live points outside the game and then spending those points

    Thief Already 50% Off in Xbox Live Store Deal

    On March 28, the latest Thief title will go on sale on the Xbox Live Marketplace for the Xbox One for 50% off. This is in addition to 50% off Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, 33% off Call of Duty: Ghosts and 20% off Call of Duty: Ghosts Digital Hardened Edition. The big sale on Tomb Raider isn't too surprising since it's already a re-release title. The surprising news is most certainly concerning Thief and its 50% discount. This could be a worrying sign that the newest release in the franchise isn't selling anywhere near as well as was hoped. Call of Duty sudden...
