Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

For Google, today is a bit of a mixed bag. The good news for them is that they just soft launched their first dedicated gaming platform, Stadia. The bad news is that it's reportedly a "monumental flop."

Today, those who purchased the $130 Founder's Edition of Stadia are probably awaiting its delivery. The physical contents largely consisting of a unique Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Though you had to plunk down $130 for this, there was actually no guarantee that you would get...
 

Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

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...

    BioWare Branding Gets a Fresh Look

    Does it look Beautiful?

    Developer BioWare is looking to get a new lease on life. We already learned that the studio might be giving a drastic overhaul to Anthem and has started to work on the next Mass Effect. We also know that they're working hard on the next Dragon Age. But what about BioWare as a company? That too seems to have gotten some work put into it.

    Earlier today a new visual identity was revealed for BioWare. This includes an updated branding and logo. This information comes courtesy of Brand New (the website, not the band). It also...

  • Google Reveals Pricing on First Stadia Titles

    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...

  • Google Adds Ten More Titles to Stadia Launch Lineup

    Google Adds Ten More Titles to Stadia Launch Lineup

    Panic? Who's panicking? Not Google, that's for sure!

    Google initially announced a lineup of just 12 titles for their upcoming soft launch of Stadia. At least four of those titles were Tomb Raider and most of them were games already released on other platforms.

    This list of games for a new console launch was anemic, at best. This is even more true when you realize that the only people that are getting a shot at Stadia right now are those that forked over $130 for the honor of maybe getting the Founder's Edition on the day of its release on November...

  • Anthem is Reportedly Getting a Complete Overhaul

    Anthem is Reportedly Getting a Complete Overhaul

    Well, it worked for Final Fantasy 14 and No Man's Sky.

    According to a new report from Kotaku, BioWare may be working hard on a complete overhaul for Anthem. According to their sources, this overhaul of the game has been coined "Anthem 2.0" or "Anthem Next."

    As of right now, the team doesn't even know yet how this overhaul should be distributed. It seems as though BioWare is still trying to figure out if the updates should be released all at once or over a period of time. They are also apparently considering going the No Man's...

    Meanwhile, at Google...

    Microsoft announced a big expansion to its Project xCloud streaming service today. At X019, the company revealed over 50 additional games for xCloud. This is a big jump from the initial five titles that were available at the initial launch just one month prior.
