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...

    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,...

  • Review: GreedFall (PC)

    Review: GreedFall (PC)

    A long and thrilling journey.

    GreedFall is a game that filled a gaping void I did not know I had for a new action-RPG experience. Though it lacks some of the polish you would expect from a major game release these days, the game still rewards the player with fun and varied combat, complex story beats, and an overall experience that should make even the veterans at BioWare sit up and take notice. For those of you that have been on the fence about picking up GreedFall, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not go pick it up right now.

  • Blizzard Chooses Not to Ban American University Hearthstone Players Who Showed Support for Hong Kong

    The team decided to forfeit the season anyway over Blizzard's double standards.

    Blizzard continues to dig themselves into an ever deepening hole this week. It all began when Blizzard banned a professional Hearthstone player and took away his earnings after he voiced his support for the Hong Kong protests during a live-stream interview.
