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...

    Valve Reflects Back on Steam in 2018 and Looks Forward to 2019

    Valve just released a fairly comprehensive "year in review" for Steam that covers everything from the Steam Store, to active users, to a breakdown of users by region, to changes made to the Steam Community, to upcoming changes they're already working on for 2019, and more.

    Most of what is discussed in the blog is essentially a recap of what we already talked about at various times in 2018. You're more than welcome to check out the full entry for yourself, but we're going to focus on what Valve is talking about bringing to you in 2019 "and...

  • Review: Last Year: The Nightmare (PC)

    Review: Last Year: The Nightmare (PC)

    A solid asymmetrical survival-horror game that's light on content.

    Asymmetrical multiplayer games have been going steady for the past few years now. Some of the biggest games in that particular genre include the long departed Evolve, the still ongoing Dead by Daylight, and even Friday the 13th if you're into that sort of thing. You can now add in Last Year: The Nightmare to the mix as it combines 5 versus 1 multiplayer with elements of survival-horror. As with those other titles, Last Year places one player in the shoes of a bloodthirsty murderer while...

  • Steam's Updated DLC Browsing Experience is Kind of Bad

    Steam's Updated DLC Browsing Experience is Kind of Bad

    Before this evening, if you wanted to get some DLC for a game that you owned on Steam, it was either shown through a simple dropdown menu on the game's page or as a condensed list on its own page. Today, Valve did away with both of those options and replaced them with a more spread out solution.

    These changes are talked about in a new but brief update on the Steam Blog.

    Now, all of the DLC is listed on a separate page when you click to view more. If a game has a lot of DLC, then it's spread across multiple pages. The page consists...

  • Former Gearbox Lawyer Claims CEO Randy Pitchford Took Secret $12 Million Bonus in Lawsuit Gearbox Claims is 'Absurd'

    Buckle up, everyone, because this is going to be a real doozy of a news post.

    There are two lawsuits recently filed between Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford and the former general counsel for Gearbox. They're both suing each other, both claiming the other were in violation of their legal responsibilities to the company. The lawsuit against Pitchford from the former Gearbox lawyer Wade Callender says that Pitchford received a secret $12 million bonus from Take-Two Interactive.

    Callender's lawsuit, filed December 21, 2018, also says that Pitchford is in violation of some contracts that involve Gearbox and a "separate real estate company" that both of them owned. Gearbox says that these accusations are "absurd" in a brief statement released today by a Gearbox spokesperson. ...

    Physical Metro Exodus Pre-Orders Include Exclusive Poster

    The week of new Metro Exodus reveals continues today with word of a special bonus for those pre-ordering a physical copy of the game. To recap the week thus far, we've been informed about the game's Photo Mode, and we saw a new story trailer, and then there was the Master Artyom Edition of the game. Apparently there was a "Making of" video released yesterday but no press release hit my inbox, so I'm only now finding out.

    Dead or Alive 6 Online Beta Test Launches on PS4 Today

    The online beta test for Dead or Alive 6 launched today (January 11, 2019) on the PlayStation 4. The catch with this one is the fact that this beta is exclusive to those with PlayStation Plus subscriptions. As of this writing, you can already download the beta from the PlayStation Store.

    Players will have from now until January 14 at 6:59 AM (PT) to play in this beta. The beta includes the Online Versus mode and four "iconic" characters that include Kasumi, Ayane, Hayate, and Hayabusa. It will also allow you to play as one of the new characters...

    Epic and Improbable Create $25 Million Fund to Move Devs Away from Unity

    It's been a real rollercoaster of a day for those using the Unity game engine. First, Unity cut off all future support for the online multiplayer platform called SpatialOS. Unity updated their terms of service back on December 4, 2018, and only clarified these changes to the SpatialOS development team at Improbable on January 10, 2019. These changes specifically prevent services like SpatialOS from working with Unity.

    SpatialOS is a widely used development toolkit allowed developers to more easily integrate online multiplayer experiences into their...

    Jump Force Open Beta Begins January 18

    Come January 18th, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will get to try out Jump Force in what Bandai Namco is calling an "open beta weekend." Be it a true beta or a "demo" is besides the point because what really matters is that you will finally get to test drive the fighting game that we have been passing along news about now for months.

    Here's how it's going to go down. First off, there will be four separate three-hour long sessions:

    Secondly? Well, that's kind of it. Just make sure you download the demo...
