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,...

    New tech is changing the way we’ll play games in the future

    Predictions for New Tech in the Gaming Industry
    Cutting-edge game technology allows players to experience their simulated entertainment totally immersively. Video games have come a long, long way since their humble beginnings, and pixels have made way for photo-realistic graphics as titles move from the arcades to our PCs, consoles, smartphones, tablets, and VR headsets. The continued evolution of the tech associated with these games is set to keep evolving, too, and the future looks bright for those who enjoy these pastimes.

  • BioWare Announces Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises

    BioWare Announces Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises

    If you got shivers reading that headline, you are in good company. Last night during The Game Awards, Anthem wasn't the only game that BioWare wanted to show off. The first glimpse at a new Dragon Age title was also shown off.

    All that we really gather is that it will be called Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises. Or maybe that's not the title and it's just a teaser sentence for the sake of the trailer. Who cares, it's new Dragon Age info!

    It's the most teaser filled of teaser trailers, but it's all we've got... for now. BioWare executive...

  • Rage 2 Looks Like Another Bethesda Launcher Exclusive

    Rage 2 Looks Like Another Bethesda Launcher Exclusive

    Following in the footsteps of the infamous Fallout 76, Bethesda looks like they're going to stick to their guns when it comes to their Bethesda.net Launcher. It has been noticed by more than a few individuals, that Rage 2 is only being listed on the Bethesda.net Store for the PC version.

    There is no Steam page for the game. There is no mention of Steam anywhere in the Rage 2 vocabulary. This seems to have come to light last night when pre-orders for the game went live and the options for the PC version were not what people were expecting. Hopeful ...

  • Far Cry New Dawn Hopes to Deliver Post-Apocalyptic Thrills

    Far Cry New Dawn Hopes to Deliver Post-Apocalyptic Thrills

    Let me preface this news post to say that if you haven't yet beaten Far Cry 5 and are planning on still doing so, don't read this. I'm serious. This game is literally a direct follow-up to the events that took place in Far Cry 5. Don't say I didn't warn you though.

    Last night during The Game Awards, Ubisoft announced Far Cry New Dawn, a standalone sequel to Far Cry 5. It once again takes place in Hope County but 17 years following the rather unexpected and explosive ending to Far Cry 5. Ubisoft says that there are not one, but two main villains that...

    Obsidian Announces The Outer Worlds - Think Sci-Fi Fallout in Space

    Think back to the last great Fallout game and chances are you're thinking of Fallout: New Vegas. That game was developed by Obsidian Entertainment. Now imagine Obsidian took all of that great stuff, had the financial backing of Microsoft behind them, and created an entirely original game with a healthy smattering of new gameplay ideas. You would probably have The Outer Worlds, the latest game to be revealed by Obsidian Entertainment. They also just happen to be the original studio behind Fallout. Huh, fancy that! The development studio announced their new tit...
