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,...

  • Bungie Throws in the Towel on Niobe Labs, Will Unlock Bergusia Forge in Destiny 2 Later Today for Everyone


    Yesterday, a Destiny 2 update included a new head scratching puzzle. Solving this puzzle would open up the fourth and final Forge in the Black Armory DLC for everyone to hop into and enjoy. The problem is, Bungie maybe made the puzzles a bit too difficult as they have not yet been solved and the forge has not yet been unlocked.

    The puzzle centers around a new area called Niobe Labs. In this new area, players unlock various levels and encounters by solving puzzles. These puzzles largely center around shooting hidden symbols using special weapons in...

    Capcom announced a limited time "1-Shot Demo" for Resident Evil 2. This demo will be made available January 11 through January 31. During this time, interested players will be able to download and play this demo on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    And now, the catch. It's not called the "1-Shot Demo" without reason. Capcom has decided to give players just one 30 minutes to survive the demo. If you die before the 30 minutes are up, you can attempt to go again with whatever time you have left. If you beat the demo within 30 minutes,...

    On February 12, those on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android will get to play a digital version of the strategy board game called Evolution.

  • Soldier: 76 Confirmed to Be Gay in Latest Overwatch Short Story

    Soldier: 76 Confirmed to Be Gay in Latest Overwatch Short Story


    Blizzard released a new short story for Overwatch today entitled Bastet. The latest story delivers heaping helpings of lore for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

    Among the big reveals in Bastest are little snippets in the lives of the Overwatch fighters from days long gone. For instance, we find out how Ana lost her eye. We learn that Reinhardt is not very good at stealth. And perhaps the biggest news, at least for those who make all of the rule 34 drawings, is the fact that Soldier: 76 is gay.

    The reveal came about as Ana...
