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...

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...

  • Destiny 2 Update 2.1.4 Includes Tons of Class Adjustments and a Special Returning Weapon


    The 2.1.4 update for Destiny 2 came out today. The update includes a number of changes to the Sandbox gameplay, with a huge focus on tuning the super abilities for nearly every class and sub-class in the game. Crucible also saw some love today with some tuning adjustments made to heavy ammo in the Competitive game types.

    This update also makes some changes to the Black Armory forges, the frequency of the Whispers event on Io, and more. Perhaps the bigger news is the fact that a new questline from the Drifter will allow players to pick up a fan-favorite weapon from the first Destiny. ...

  • Battlefield V's Latest Update Improves Panzerstorm Map, Reduces Footstep Sounds, and More

    The second part of the "Lightning Strikes" update for Battlefield V has finally arrived. With it comes a bunch of much needed improvements to the Panzerstorm map alongside some new gear, gameplay tweaks, and more.

    The first half of this Lightning Strikes update went live earlier this month. In that update, DICE upped the volume of footsteps to a very, very audible degree. Some may say that they increased it a bit too much. I am one such person. In fact, it seems as though most people thought that the footsteps of enemies were far too loud following...

  • Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Summary

    Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Summary


    The VIP demo weekend for Anthem has come and gone already. It was a bit of a bumpy road that included connection woes, infinite loading screens, and broken entitlements. These are just a few of the issues players encountered this past weekend.

    It wasn't a complete bust of a weekend, but for a lot of fans and potentials it was certainly disappointing. BioWare's Head of Live Service Chad Robertson explains that while these issues were terrible, they should be fixed for next weekend's public demo. Furthermore, Robertson also goes on to say that the release...

    Just moments ago, the Destiny Twitter account sent out a new teaser video for tomorrow's big Destiny 2 update. Over the past few weeks, Bungie has been giving little bits of information here and there on what is coming in tomorrow's 2.1.4 update. This includes last week's "This Week at Bungie."

    This update doesn't yet have a full changelog available with all of the changes, but some of the highlights include a buff for the Hunter's Golden Gun, buffs to damage on scout rifles, auto rifles, and sniper rifles. This is all very vague and just...
