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."

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. 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...

    Insomniac Games Celebrates 20th Anniversary with a... Music Video?

    This year, Insomniac Games celebrates 20 years of being in the industry. As a result, they made a music video! Wait... what?!

    If, for any reason, you want just the audio track for the song, you can grab it from Soundcloud....

  • Developer Says Steam Greenlight Going Away within a Year as Steam Becomes More Open

    According to Tweets (via CVG) made by Jonathan Biddle of Curve Studios, Valve may be getting rid of their Steam Greenlight service within the next 12 months.
    We met with Valve at GDC, and they say Greenlight will be gone within 12 months. They'll still offer curated space, but otherwise be open.
    This tends to go hand in hand with what Gabe Newell said a couple of months ago about wanting to make Greenlight go away as Steam evolves. This also ties in with how Valve is giving more control over games and sales to the developer instead of having to go throu...

    Ubisoft Shows First Video Glimpse at Assassin's Creed Unity

    The recent leak on Assassin's Creed Unity may have forced Ubisoft's hand in showing a trailer for the game long before they actually wanted to. Even still, this is a nice gesture on their part to give the fans what they wanted.

    We have been working on the new Assassin's Creed for more than three years and although we weren't quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC, it seems Abstergo are trying to force our hand! So here's a true first look at in-game footage from Assassin's Creed Unity. Stay tuned - we'll have many more exciting

    PSA: Wal-Mart Selling Titanfall Xbox One Bundle for $450

    This may be going on for a limited time (or it may be a new permanent price, who knows) but Wal-Mart is offering the Titanfall Xbox One bundle for just $450. That's a savings of $50 from the $500 suggested price and the price of the bundle just about everywhere else.

    This bundle includes the Xbox One, controller, Kinect, a digital copy of Titanfall, and a month of Xbox Live Gold.

    Interestingly, Wal-Mart is also selling the non-Titanfall bundle for $450 (USD). Keep in mind that this is normally a $500 system here. Either this is just Wal-Mart...
