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,...

  • Free PlayStation Plus Games for January 2019

    Free PlayStation Plus Games for January 2019


    I only have the free PlayStation Plus games for January 2019 to share with you today as Microsoft has yet to reveal their Games with Gold lineup yet. Sony is offering up games like Steep and Portal Knights for PlayStation 4 owners in the new year. January has typically been a bit of a slower month for the service, which is really unfortunate for those who just got new consoles during Christmas.

  • Steam Reveals "Best of 2018" Lists

    Steam Reveals "Best of 2018" Lists


    It's the end of 2018 and you know what that means? No, it's not that. Nor is it that. Ew, stop it. Alright, I'll just tell you instead. It's time for Steam's "Best of 2018" lists! You probably actually guessed that given the title, but that's besides the point. Valve has compiled some lists that take a look back at the games released in 2018. These include the top sellers for the year, the best VR titles, and more! Granted, most of these were probably just automatically compiled via Steam's stat tracking, but they're still fun to take a look at.

  • MINImax Tinyverse Brings F2P, Real-Time, 3D, Strategy, Brawling, God Gaming to Steam Early Access


    In the spirit of just throwing a lot at a wall and seeing what works, Indie studio O'ol Blue Inc. has readied the release of their new free-to-play game, MINImax Tinyverse, for Steam Early Access today. It's got elements of competitive PvP. It's got 3D visuals. It's free-to-play. It's part strategy. It's part brawler. It's also a God-game. I'm pretty sure at this point, the only thing it doesn't do is make you pasta.

  • Steam Reportedly Closing Down Video Section in Early 2019

    Steam Reportedly Closing Down Video Section in Early 2019


    I know this may come as a shock to a lot of you, but Steam has an entire video section where you can purchase or rent a wide variety of films like John Wick, and full series like Red vs. Blue. Honestly, I wouldn't be too surprised to learn that most people had no idea that Valve had this section available on Steam because advertising has been next to non-existent for it.

    It turns out that there may be something to it because Valve is reportedly going to pull the plug on the entire Steam video section in early 2019. This revelation comes not from Valve...

    World War 3 Updated with New Maps and More


    World War 3 has been updated with another "HUGE UPDATE," at least that's what the devs are calling it. Honestly, it does sound like it's a fairly substantial update. It includes new maps, a new tank, a new weapon, new camo, new skins, and more.

    Another big part of this update focuses on performance improvements. These include a reduction in RAM usage, shorter load times, and the like. Let's take a look at the full list of changes in this big December Update 0.3 for World War 3.

    The popularity of gaming is at an all-time high, and you can get a slice of that particular pie by starting an e-commerce business in the industry. Whether you're a passionate gamer yourself or not, the potential for success if you choose to embrace such a venture is huge.

    You aren't going to succeed with such a niche online store if you don't know the ins and outs of the field, though. Fortunately, you can find helpful information on that very matter down below.

  • PSA: The 2018 Steam Winter Sale is Here

    PSA: The 2018 Steam Winter Sale is Here

    It's that joyous time of the year again. The time where you can spend a lot of money on yourself and retreat into a shell of isolation as you play game after game that you picked up during the latest Steam Winter Sale. It's probably a good thing then that the 2018 Steam Winter Sale is finally here.

    In addition to saving all kinds of money, Valve is also going to give you some digital goodies when you check out their "Extremely Cozy Cottage of Surprises." Sure, it sounds ominous, but I'm guessing it's nothing to worry about.
