Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

For Google, today is a bit of a mixed bag. The good news for them is that they just soft launched their first dedicated gaming platform, Stadia. The bad news is that it's reportedly a "monumental flop."

Today, those who purchased the $130 Founder's Edition of Stadia are probably awaiting its delivery. The physical contents largely consisting of a unique Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Though you had to plunk down $130 for this, there was actually no guarantee that you would get...

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...

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...

  • Sony Fixes Issue that Allowed Malicious Messages to Crash PlayStation 4 Consoles

    This past week, a number of PlayStation 4 owners started to discover that their consoles were stuck in a crash loop. These crashes were apparently caused by a malicious message sent by other users that contained text or characters that the PS4 operating system just did not like. Those who were unaware of the quick fix resorted to factory resetting their consoles. These users believed their consoles to be bricked by the offending message. Thankfully, this is not the case and you did not need to factory reset your console if you had fallen victim. It seems as though ...

    Rockstar's Dan Houser Clarifies "100-hour Week" Statement

    In a recent interview with Vulture, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser said that at times, the Red Dead Redemption 2 team were "working 100-hour weeks" on the game. This naturally caused quite a bit of an uproar across social media and a number of gaming sites. Rightfully so, I might add. "Crunch" as it's commonly referred to, sees employees going to extremes to hit particular milestones. These are common prior to a game shipping in order to meet launch deadlines. The industry hates it. Developers hate it. Consumers don't feel comfortable supporting studios tha...
