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.

Blizzard Issues Insultingly Pathetic Statement About Blitzchung Suspension and Reasoning

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...

  • Blizzard Introduces $60 Automatic Level 90 Boost in World of Warcraft

    Blizzard Introduces $60 Automatic Level 90 Boost in World of Warcraft

    Why pay some stranger a lot of money to level your World of Warcraft characters, when you can pay Blizzard just $60 to get you to level 90 immediately!


    This may or may not be the final price. WoW Insider speculates that this wasn't even supposed to be live yet since pre-orders were not yet live. Thus, there is a small chance that this isn't the final price. However, the ability to purchase the automatic boost was apparently live on a number of servers, so make of that what you will.

  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake Would Take Longer to Develop than the Final Fantasy 13 Trilogy

    In speaking with Joystiq, Final Fantasy producer, Yoshinori Kitase, said that while he would love to do an HD version of Final Fantasy 7, the work load would be more than the entire Final Fantasy 13 trilogy.

    Keeping in mind that the trilogy of Final Fantasy 13 games took over 10 years to develop and release and you should have a better idea of how big of a task it would be to remake Final Fantasy 7 with modern visuals and high definition audio.
    "I still think it's going to be a very challenging task," Kitase said, before reiterating that remastering

  • A Work Around for the 'Black Screen' Bug for Xbox One Users After Latest Update

    Though the latest Xbox One update brought about some much needed new functionality to the system, it also brought about a curious issue that many gamers are experiencing. Some are reporting that after they turn their system on, they are met with only a blank, black screen.

    Microsoft is aware of the issue and have already provided an easy work around.
    Yes, it's just that easy to fix. Hold the power button down for 10 seconds and reboot your Xbox One. That should fix the issue. Besides the dreaded black scree...

  • Unofficial Gameplay Footage for The Order: 1886

    Unofficial Gameplay Footage for The Order: 1886

    Here is just the briefest glimpses of gameplay from The Order: 1886. You've already seen two new non-gameplay trailers today so why not see how the game looks in action. The footage is not direct from Sony or Ready at Dawn and may also not be direct feed either (crackling sound in places, cuts, etc.).

    It's not very telling from the footage shown if it's all narrow corridors and Telltale style quick time events, so keep your fingers crossed that the full game isn't merely Gears of War in the Victorian era.

  • New Trailers for the PS4 Exclusive - The Order: 1886

    New Trailers for the PS4 Exclusive - The Order: 1886

    A couple of new trailers have come out today for the PlayStation 4 exclusive, The Order: 1886. Unfortunately, neither of them actually show any gameplay, but we'll get back to that in the next news post.


    The next trailer seems like a bit of a "Cliff's Notes" version of the announcement trailer from E3 2012. Just for the hell of it, we'll include it anyway.

    The Order: 1886 introduces players to a unique vision of Victorian-Era London where Man uses advanced technology to battle a powerful and ancient foe. As a member

  • PlayStation 4 has Sold over 5.3 Million Units to Date

    PlayStation 4 has Sold over 5.3 Million Units to Date

    As of February 8, the PlayStation 4 has already surpassed 5.3 million units sold throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, and a few parts of Asia. That figure is just Sony's estimate on sell-through to the end consumer, so the actual number of units sold to retailers may be a bit higher.

    Though I can't imagine the number would be that much higher since it's still next to impossible to find a PlayStation 4 in stock anywhere, at least here in the States. Last month, sales of the PS4 were at 4.2 million and later this week, the system will...

  • BioShock Developer Irrational Games 'Winding Down' as Most Employees are Laid Off

    Ken Levine updated the Irrational Games website earlier today with a sad message for fans of the BioShock series and System Shock 2, to name a couple. He says that Irrational Games will be "winding down" and that he will be moving to a "smaller, more entrepreneurial endeavor" at Take-Two.

    He also says that this means having to let go of all but 15 employees at Irrational Games. Here is Ken Levine's message to the fans.
    When Jon Chey, Rob Fermier and I founded Irrational Games seventeen years ago, our mission was to make visually unique worlds
