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. The unique visual style was certainly eye catching, but I often wondered if the rest of the game would be able to hold up to this aesthetically pleasing presentation.

With the release of Journey...
 

Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

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...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...

  • Sony Decides Not to Sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PlayStation Store in Russia

    (Insert the same "No Russian" joke every other website is using)

    Sony has made the decision not to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare through the PlayStation Store in Russia. This is according to a statement issued by Sony Russia today via Twitter. The statement was then confirmed later by the Call of Duty Russia Twitter account.

    The publisher says that while the game will no longer be sold on the PlayStation Store, it will still be available to purchase digitally for PC via Battle.net and Xbox. The full statement from Activision, as...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Does Away with Prestige Levels

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Does Away with Prestige Levels

    New progression system details revealed.

    A new blog focused on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare went up today that talks about the progression changes that were made for this year's release. First off, there are no more Prestige levels. Players will be able to earn 55 base levels and 100 additional Officer Ranks in each season of play.

    This news comes hot on the heels of word that Modern Warfare is doing away with paid map packs and loot boxes.

    Each weapon now also has 100 earnable camo patterns and an average of 50 attachments. You...

  • Call of Duty Ditches Season Pass, Paid Maps, and Loot Boxes

    Call of Duty Ditches Season Pass, Paid Maps, and Loot Boxes

    Activision adopting a new approach to monetization with Modern Warfare.

    When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25, a new era of monetization for the franchise will also begin. Activision plans to change how they approach things like the in-game economy and real-money microtransactions.

    An official blog post by the publisher highlights some of these planned changes. In short, the current plan is to do away with things like Season Passes and paid DLC map packs. It's also apparently doing away with paid loot boxes. This all sounds...

  • Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Not bad for a game released three days ago.

    Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 35 million downloads across iOS and Android devices. According to the publisher, this game has been downloaded faster than any other first-person or third-person mobile action game. Of course, this factoid is based off of Activision's own internal estimates.

    Still, Call of Duty: Mobile was released on October 1, a mere three days ago. To have already hit 35 million downloads is still quite impressive. The game is a free download that...

  • Call of Duty 2020 Rumored to Be Black Ops Reboot

    Call of Duty 2020 Rumored to Be Black Ops Reboot

    Next stop: Reboot City.

    This year, Call of Duty fans are getting a reboot of the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title. Next year, fans may get a reboot of the Black Ops series. This is if the latest rumors are to be believed.

    The 2020 Call of Duty will either be Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 or simply Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game will be set in the Cold War era and will also include the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

    This all comes courtesy of YouTuber TheLongSensation via his Twitter account. While it may be easy to just write this...

  • Call of Duty Devs Won't Admit 'Modern Warfare' is Political

    Call of Duty Devs Won't Admit 'Modern Warfare' is Political

    Devs continue to be too cowardly to admit all games are political.

    In a couple of interviews conducted between Game Informer and developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward, we once again see that devs are just too afraid to admit that yes, their games are indeed political.

    Given that nearly every single game is political in some way, this seems like a rather perplexing stance to take. It's even more so when we're talking about a game that has "war" in the title, takes place in Syria, places you in the shoes of armed...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Includes a 'Tamagunchi' Digital Pet

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Includes a 'Tamagunchi' Digital Pet

    A digital digital pet as it were.

    Infinity Ward managed to implement a real-time wristwatch feature in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This would allow you to see what time it was by actually glancing at your wrist while in game. That's kind of neat, but also rather useless.

    However, it was because of this basic feature that the team discovered they could do some rather out there ideas. For instance, they thought about stat tracking and other features you might find in a modern smartwatch or fitness tracker. Those idea just kept ballooning until...

  • Modern Warfare Multiplayer to Feature Game Mode with Over 100 Players

    Modern Warfare Multiplayer to Feature Game Mode with Over 100 Players

    Plus, new details about crossplay, the season pass, and more.

    Infinity Ward revealed today that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will feature a 100-player Ground War mode for its launch in October. I have to imagine that some people at DICE and EA are paying a bit more attention to the franchise knowing that this is a thing that is very real and very much coming soon.

    The reveal of the game's multiplayer says that there will be quick, close-quarter 2v2 experiences with the Gunfight game mode. Traditional 6v6 multiplayer modes will still exist in...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Revealed - Crossplay, New Engine, October Release, No Season Pass

    Third time's the charm for Modern Warfare.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has just been officially announced and revealed for the third-ish time in the history of the world. There is a soft reboot of the Modern Warfare story for the Call of Duty franchise and should not be confused with the original release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in 2016.

    This Modern Warfare is slated to be released on October 25, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The PC release will once again be sold through...

  • Call of Duty 2019 is Soft Reboot, Called 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'

    Call of Duty 2019 is Soft Reboot, Called 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'

    Déjà vu.

    According to some rumors with a bit of meat to them, we now know a couple of interesting details concerning the 2019 Call of Duty release.

    First off, this year's game is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I'm dead serious. It's going to be a new entry in the Modern Warfare series that originally started with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007. I know the difference between the two titles is literally just a single character, but it is a difference. Amusingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is actually the fourth Modern Warfare title,...

  • Call of Duty Shakeup - Call of Duty 2020 is Another Black Ops and Is Modern Warfare 4 Going Free-to-Play?

    Reports include talk of arguments between Sledgehammer and Raven.

    There are reported some massive changes happening behind the scenes of the Call of Duty franchise. According to a new report from Jason Schreier of Kotaku, Call of Duty 2020 is no longer being developed by Sledgehammer and Raven. It will instead be handled by Treyarch and it will be another entry in the Black Ops saga.

    This is the first major change in the development cycle of the Call of Duty franchise since 2012. Since then, the Call of Duty games have cycled between three lead...
