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...

  • CS:GO Pre-Release Update Includes Updated Inferno

    CS:GO Pre-Release Update Includes Updated Inferno

    A new pre-release update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was rolled out to testers tonight. The 1.35.5.3rc beta update includes some small adjustments to gameplay and the UI. Oh, and it also features a revised version of de_inferno!

    That's right, Inferno is the latest map to get the visual upgrade treatment in CS:GO. Check out some of the screenshots below for a look at the fan favorite map. Please note that these are not my screenshots, but you can find all of them here.

    Here are the full list of changes from this beta b...

    Valve Adds Limited Use, Monetized Sprays to CS:GO

    Valve has added sprays back into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. That's about where the good news ends. The bad news here is that they are now monetized and limited to 50 uses.

    What. The. Hell?!
    It's time to make your mark with a wide range of graffiti patterns now available as drops and in graffiti boxes as offers. Graffiti can be applied to the in-game environment wherever you want, so use your imagination and decorate the world for yourself, your friends, and (when the opportunity presents itself) your enemies.

    Big Changes Coming to the Steam Store

    Earlier this evening, it may have slipped out that Valve is planning some big changes for the Steam Store. Right now, it seems as though Steamworks developers are being notified of upcoming changes that could be rolling out over the next few weeks* (*Valve time not taken into account).

    The posting to the group (not viewable by the public), says the following:
    We wanted to let you know about some upcoming improvements we're working on for the Steam Store and what it might mean for your game. When we launched the Steam Discovery Update, we

  • Digital Homicide Now Wants to Sue Valve

    Digital Homicide Now Wants to Sue Valve

    Digital Homicide first sues Jim Sterling because he had the nerve to call them out on their asset flip cookie cutter games. Then, they subpoena Valve for the real names of 100 Steam users they wanted to sue because they said mean things about them. Then, Valve removes Digital Homicide's games from Steam for essentially bullying the Steam userbase. Now, Digital Homicide wants to sue Valve. Digital Homicide is the gift that keeps on giving. Here is what Digital Homicide put up on their website less than 24 hours ago with respect to this newfound desire to sue Valv...

  • Valve Removes Digital Homicide Games from Steam

    Valve Removes Digital Homicide Games from Steam

    Hey, remember yesterday when we brought that story of the critically acclaimed and award winning developer, Digital Homicide's James Romine campaign to sue 100 Steam users for $18 million? Yeah, remember how they sent a subpoena to Valve requesting the real names and information for those 100 Steam users?

    As expected, that didn't work out too well for Digital Homicide.


    If you would like to look at these entries for yourself, SteamDB has you covered. Valve has apparently issued a statement about the m...

  • Over 11,000 Cheaters Banned from Counter-Strike

    Over 11,000 Cheaters Banned from Counter-Strike

    Over the past 24 hours, a massive ban wave has hit Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. According to information first noticed last night by TwitchDenmark on Reddit, the total ban count has climbed to over 11,400 new bans on record. This is now the most bans delivered in one time period for anti-cheat in CS:GO. Staff and admins of some of the detected cheats made statements, like the one you see above, saying that multiple paid "undetectable" cheat providers have been affected by this. Of course, as with all things of this nature, they also say that they'll be ...

  • Valve Addresses Major CS:GO Hitbox Issue with Opt-in Beta Patch

    Valve Addresses Major CS:GO Hitbox Issue with Opt-in Beta Patch

    A couple of short days ago, it was discovered that the hitboxes were way off for players that turned just slightly. It was found that if a player moved their view just enough that only their character model's upper torso moved, it would throw the hitboxes off by a significant degree for almost the entire model. This included the oh so important head hitbox, which naturally resulted in people missing headshots they feel like they almost certainly should have hit. The community affectionately called this "getting CS:GO'd." It's not exactly the high point of creative...

    Valve Getting Sued by British Telecommunications

    British Telecommunications is the latest company to file a lawsuit against Valve. BT has filed the lawsuit in Delaware, a location that apparently favors patent holders. BT claims that Valve infringes on the Gittins, Newton, Buckley, and Beddus patents.

    Fortunately, this handy legal document breaks down what each of these patents is and how they may related to Valve.
    Gittins (...)relates generally to providing users with content that originates from multiple subscription services and delivering it through a single portal where a customer may a
