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

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...

    Dota 2 Update 7.00: The Journey Update is Released

    Valve has released the big 7.00 update for Dota 2 today. Dubbed "The Journey Update" this update for the Dota 2 client brings about substantial changes to the game. We're talking about new Hero Talent Trees, the addition of the Monkey King Hero, a UI overhaul, big changes to the map, and plenty more.

    The full list of changes, which are far too numerous to copy here, can be found at the Dota 2 Gamepedia wiki since Valve has apparently not put them up yet(?). I'm sure Dota 2 fans will be thrilled with this update for a little bit but will then e...

    Turtle Rock Releases "Lost" Left 4 Dead Campaign

    Turtle Rock Studios have released a "lost" Left 4 Dead campaign that never saw the light of day. Dam It is an incomplete campaign in almost every way but it is still playable.
    Just finished putting the Dam campaign that we streamed a while back into a L4D addon. It's gray box, and some code features are missing but it's playable from beginning to end. It also includes two standalone survival maps that never shipped.
    "Gray box" means that it's largely untextured and obviously incomplete. The campaign bridges the gap between the Dead Air campaign and the Blo...
