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.

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.

Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

  • Is a Bully Sequel in the Works?

    Is a Bully Sequel in the Works?

    A new trademark filed with the European Union for Bully Bullworth Academy: Canis Canem Edit has some fans excited that Rockstar Games might be planning a sequel to Bully. In addition, the "Bully" trademark was updated back in July in the United States. Rockstar has merely told fans of the series to stay tuned for news on any new developments of the series. The possibility of it being a sequel is quite high given that the original came out in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. Then again, perhaps it's another re-release, like the one that came out in 2008 for th...

    Xbox One Also Sells One Million Units in 24 Hours

    Microsoft is calling it "the biggest launch in Xbox history." Just as the PlayStation 4 did, the Xbox One has also sold one million units in a 24-hour period.

    Microsoft claims that so far 3.6 million miles have been driven in Forza 5 and over 60 million zombies have been killed in Dead Rising 3. The key difference to note here is that the Xbox One launched in 13 countries yesterday in order to reach one million units sold.
