Review: Journey for Elysium (PC VR)

A short trip to the afterlife.

For the past several months now, we have offered up glimpses of the story-driven VR adventure title Journey for Elysium. We saw a game that had a unique visual style, the promise of a story that would take us all to an afterlife, a world filled with architecture inspired by Greek mythology, and mind-bending puzzles to solve.

With the release of Journey...

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...

    Google Reveals Pricing on First Stadia Titles

    You might want to sit down for this one.

    Google has revealed the official pricing for the first batch of games that they are making available for the console's November 19th launch. What's interesting about this reveal is that it doesn't actually include prices for every launch game. Keep in mind that Google just recently added 10 additional titles, bringing their total to 22. The prices revealed in the list below seem to be only for those 12 initial games.

    From the looks of things, the Stadia launch prices are about as much as you would find...
