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."

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...

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...

  • As Fallout 76 Flounders German GameStops are Giving Away the Game for Free with Used Controller Purchase

    GameStop locations in Germany really seem to want to rid themselves of their Fallout 76 stock. It's apparently gotten to the point there that they are giving away free copies of Fallout 76 with every purchase of a used PlayStation 4 controller.

    A user on Reddit, cenorexia, shared a photo at their local GameStop showing an announcement of the promotion.


    As if that wasn't enough, some users in that Reddit thread actually pointed out that it would be cheaper to fly from Italy to Germany to purchase a copy of Fallout 76. The game is still...

    Project Winter Open Beta Runs from February 1-3


    Social deception. Survival. These are the two big keys to winning in Project Winter, an upcoming 8-person multiplayer game where players are randomly assigned to the roles of Traitor or Survivor.

    Players will cooperatively work together to gather resources, repair structures, and tackle the elements. However, as the game progresses, those in the group that are the secret Traitors will be steadily growing in strength. As the Survivors try to escape, the Traitors will try to do everything they can to stop that from happening.

    Subnautica: Below Zero Now Available on Early Access


    Subnautica: Below Zero has been released into Early Access today on the Epic Games Store (non-affiliate link here), through Discord, and on Steam. The game is set one year after the events in the original Subnautica. This time, the (mostly) underwater exploration takes place near an alien research station on Planet 4546B.

    This game is very much the definition of "Early Access" in that the release lacks content and is very buggy. Those who went through the long stretch of Subnautica development probably already know what to expect here....

    BioWare to Allow Running in Anthem's Fort Tarsis


    While Anthem has had a bit of a rough go, especially in this past weekend's VIP demo, one thing that wasn't mentioned as being changed is the unusually slow movement speed in Fort Tarsis. Thankfully, BioWare was also listening to the numerous complaints about this artificial speed restriction in the main Anthem hub and have revealed that they are changing things up for the game's full release.

    BioWare had intentionally reduced the movement speed in Fort Tarsis to make the player feel more human. This was meant to contrast the fast-paced movement players...

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is Now Available


    The words "Kingdom Hearts 3 is now available" are ones that many fans have been waiting about 13 years to read. That day has finally come thanks to Square Enix and Disney. This marks the release of the latest and, perhaps, last release in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.



    I'm not quite sure how well newcomers to the franchise will actually handle this game. The long-running story throughout the games is ... uh... confusing to put it mildly. Maybe "convoluted" is a bit better a word? However, the game has gotten some fairly...
