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.

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...

    Activision Admits Call of Duty: Ghosts Sold Less than Black Ops 2 at Launch

    Despite Activision proudly proclaiming that Call of Duty: Ghosts shipped more than $1 billion worth of product to retail outlets, they admitted that they have not actually sold that amount. In fact, they really haven't even come close to that figure.

    Activision's CFO Dennis Durkin told investors that Ghosts has not even hit Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sales figures yet. They're naturally blaming it on the upcoming release of the new consoles and digital distribution... somehow. Really? Alright...
