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."

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...
 

Blizzard Bends the Knee to China, Bans Hearthstone Pro Blitzchung

Pro player that voiced his support for the Hong Kong protests banned by Blizzard.

Yesterday, we brought you the story about Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, a professional Hearthstone player that called for the liberation of Hong Kong during a post-game interview on the official Taiwanese Hearthstone stream.

    Respawn Explains Titanfall's 48GB Install Size

    The other day, someone from The Escapist said that the audio for Titanfall included every localized language file. Now that the game is out for everyone, it's a bit easier to see what your hard drive space is being taken up by.

In speaking with Eurogamer, Respawn's Lead Engineer, Richard Baker, said that they use uncompressed audio to make it easier on lower end machines.
    "Yeah, basically

    Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home is slated to come out on "consoles." The latest blog entry from The Fullbright Company wasn't too specific on which consoles they meant, but I'm going to assume something with "Xbox" and/or "PlayStation" in the name. I know, call me crazy.


    Midnight City is to thank for the console version of this game that seems to have really divided the gamers of the world on whether or not it's good. Both teams plan to release more specific details on this "console" release later on down the road....
