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.

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...

  • PlayStation 4 and Vita Ultimate Edition Bundle Coming this December

    PlayStation 4 and Vita Ultimate Edition Bundle Coming this December

    It looks like an "Ultimate Edition" bundle that includes the PlayStation 4 and the PS Vita may be coming this December. David Scammell, Editor at VideoGamer.com snapped this photo of an upcoming ad that features the bundle deal.


    The catch here is that the bundle deal may only be for European markets. Yeah, bummer. So far, Sony has not yet announced or confirmed anything yet for any region, so keep those fingers crossed that this makes its way to other regions....

  • Microsoft Has No Clear Solution for Xbox One Disc Drive Issue

    Microsoft Has No Clear Solution for Xbox One Disc Drive Issue

    The PlayStation 4 had its fair share of hardware issues (perhaps largely attributed to disgruntled Foxxcon employees) and now so does the Xbox One. The Xbox One seems to suffer mainly from a disc drive failure and unfortunately for those affected users, Microsoft has no clear solution.

    We know that with a hardware launch of this magnitude customers will have questions and we have many avenues for customers to get the answers they need and get back in the game as soon as possible. Rest assured we plan to take care of our customers. Any customer

    DICE's General Manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson, announced today that there will be a special double XP event starting on November 28 for Battlefield 4. The reason for the special event is due to the recent server issues that Battlelog had thanks to a lengthy DDoS attack and for various PlayStation 4 crashing issues.

    In addition, any player that logs into the game on December 5 will get the M1911 pistol scope. This item was previously only available to those that worked at DICE.

  • Microsoft Severs All Ties with Apparent Jerk KSI

    Microsoft Severs All Ties with Apparent Jerk KSI

    I don't know who KSI is, but from what the Internet tells me, he's quite the misogynistic douchebag that sexually harassed female event goers at Eurogamer Expo 2012. He's been banned from all Eurogamer events as a result. He was oddly chosen as one of the performers scheduled for the Xbox One launch event in London. Afterwards, he filed a YouTube copyright claim against a journalist that questioned Microsoft's decision to hire a huge douchebag for their event. A "copyright safe" version of the video can be found below. Microsoft was apparently unaware of KSI's "e...

    Microsoft Claims the Cloud Makes the Xbox One Four Times as Powerful

    The Marketing Director for Xbox France, Hugues Ouvrard, gave an interview with French publication, Le Nouvel Observateur. In it, he discusses how the Xbox One is a lot more powerful than the PlayStation 4, despite the apparent hardware shortcomings.

    How?

    The Cloud. Prepare yourself for this one.
    The PS4 is not more powerful. There is a confusion about the difference in the number of pixels, but the definition of certain defined by the publisher, not the console. Especially thanks to the power of cloud - we have installed 300,000 servers
