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,...

  • PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

    PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

    Sony dishes more details about their next-gen console and controller.

    The announcement of the next-gen consoles has been really, really weird. Sony first announced the PlayStation 5 via a Wired interview with Mark Cerny. Since then, there really hasn't been much revealed about the new console. In fact, it wasn't even known until today that the next console was actually going to be called the "PlayStation 5."

    Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

    Sony is about to release the 7.00 system update for all PlayStation 4 owners later this week. This update has been a part of a public beta test since near the end of July 2019. This long testing period should hopefully mean that all of the issues have been ironed out prior to the public release.

    What are the big features planned for 7.00? First and foremost we will see the increase in the number of players supported in a PlayStation 4 Party. The current maximum number of players is 8....

    Sony is quick to note that the PlayStation 4 Share feature will remain largely the same as it was before. However, Facebook will no longer be...

The player, Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, appeared in a gas mask similar to those worn by those participating in the ever ongoing Hong Kong protests.

    Wearing these masks has recently been banned in Hong Kong. This anti-mask law was enacted in an effort to deter the protests. This law...

    The game will be released about a month later than expected.

    11 bit studios and developer Dead Mage announced today some unfortunate news. The two studios have revealed that Children of Morta for the Nintendo Switch has been delayed by about a month. This moves the originally planned release date from October 15, 2019 to November 20, 2019.

    However, this delay does not impact the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. These two platforms will still get the game on October 15. The studio says that they are "not willing...
