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,...

    Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain Out Now on Steam

    EDF! EDF! EDF!

    Another new Earth Defense Force game is now available on Steam today. The game is Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, a game that made its debut on the PlayStation 4 back in April of this year. You will once again engage in all-out war with plenty of giant alien bugs, but the gameplay loop in this one is a bit different than the norm.

    Character customization is handled a bit differently in Iron Rain. You can now customize things like facial expressions, hair, body type, voice, clothing, and more. The game also introduces some new gear,...

  • Fortnite Chapter 2 Offers Big Changes for Battle Royale and Very Little for Save the World

    Black hole sun, won't you come...

    Thousands of people watched a mysterious black hole where Fortnite once stood. Literally. It was the top watched "game" on Twitch the past few days and it was literally nothing but a glorified screensaver. You could not play Fortnite at all. There was no Battle Royale. There was no Save the World. There was nothing. There were some random numbers at times, but who really cares.

    All of that nothingness has led to today's launch of Fortnite Chapter 2. This is still a free download for the PlayStation...

    Saints Row 2 PC is Getting Some Much Needed Patches Soon

    After years of searching, the original PC source code has been found.

    As part of their 11th anniversary stream for Saints Row 2, Volition announced that they are going to release some massive improvements to the severely broken game on PC.

    The team has found the PC source code from the original release on the PC. Keep in mind that the game was initially outsourced to a third-party for the PC port and they did not do a great job at it. In fact, you might call the port "terrible" or "the worst PC port ever" and it wouldn't be...

  • Multiple Layoffs Hit Planetside 2 Studio Daybreak Games

    Multiple Layoffs Hit Planetside 2 Studio Daybreak Games

    Layoffs are the result of a company "realignment."

    Multiple employees have been laid off from Daybreak Games. These layoffs occured at the end of the week last week and have seemingly impacted every department within the company. The San Diego-based studio is responsible for games such as Planetside 2, H1Z1, and the newly launched Planetside Arena.

    Planetside Arena went into Early Access just this past month, but so far the reception has been tepid, at best, for the F2P battle arena game. Even now, less than one month since release,...
