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,...

    Battle Royale and New Archer Class Coming to Black Desert Online

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Dated for September 10, 2019

    Do not adjust your calendars! The headline is correct! This weekend, Piranha Games revealed that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be released on September 10, 2019. This very exact and very far-off release date was revealed during Mech_Con 2018 on Saturday, December 2, 2018. How do they have that exact date? No idea. Will they actually release on that date without delay? I have no idea. Will this site stop having database crashes? Probably not. It's a strange time we're living in, folks. A new trailer was released as part of the recent announcement. It's a gameplay trailer...

  • Bethesda Gave Fallout 76 Canvas Bags to Influencers, But Not to Paying Customers

    Two days ago, we reported on the story that Bethesda pulled a bait-and-switch when it came to delivering a canvas bag to fans that spent $200 for Fallout 76's Power Armor Edition. As you recall, they were instead given a nylon bag and not the canvas bag that is still being advertised at retailers like Amazon and GameStop.

    Yesterday, we reported on how Bethesda's compensation was meager, at best. They offered up $5 of in-game currency that can be used to maybe buy a door and some plants. And now today comes word that Bethesda provided influencers...

    Bethesda Pushes The Elder Scrolls: Blades to 2019

    Bethesda's upcoming free-to-play mobile title, The Elder Scrolls: Blades was set to be released this Fall. Instead, the studio has officially announced today that the game will not be released until some time in 2019. Things don't really seem to be going well for Bethesda this week, eh?

    Given that we are now less than a month away from Winter kicking off, time was getting cut a little close to meet that "Fall" promise. The official word of the delay came via the official Elder Scrolls Twitter account.

    The second episode for Life is Strange 2 will arrive January 2019. This is according to the latest blog entry from the dev team at DONTNOD.
    The Life is Strange series is a project close to all of our hearts and one for which we do not want to rush development and thereby fail to meet the benchmark of quality and emotional impact that you, our players, deserve. This is why we so far have not announced an official release date - we want to ensure that we will be in a position to release something that we are proud of and that you will enjoy and remember forever.
