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,...

    This Official Forza Horizon 4 Commercial is Amusing and Informative

    If you still don't know too much about the upcoming open world racing experience that is Forza Horizon 4, then maybe this new official commercial will help you to understand.

    Though it is informative, it still seems to have left the poor narrator a little confused.

    Forza Horizon 4 will be released on October 2, 2018 for the Xbox One and Windows 10.

    First Look at The Surge's Western Themed Expansion

    Even though The Surge 2 was announced, that doesn't mean work stopped on the original game. In fact, there's an entirely new expansion coming out for The Surge that maybe isn't what you expected to see out of the game.

    It's called The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented and it's got a decidedly western theme going on. Just like the base game, it will put your action-RPG skills to the test.

  • Valve Making Great Strides to Combat Steam's Content Problem

    Valve Making Great Strides to Combat Steam's Content Problem

    Valve just updated their blog today with some information that I honestly wasn't expecting to see. A few months ago Valve's Erik Johnson put up a blog post that more or less said that they were going to be working on making things better in the Steam store and would work on removing games and developers that were being obvious trolls or those with illegal content in their games.

    It sounded, at least to me, like they were again going to be super hands off and let the market curate itself. Well I'm eating a bit of crow this evening because Valve updated...

  • This is the Full Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' Map

    This is the Full Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' Map

    Charlie INTEL has pieced together the full battle royale map that will be used for the Blackout mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

    I say "pieced together" because Activision and Treyarch were sending out direct messages to a number of Call of Duty communities with small sections of the overall map. Those communities then shared the media they were sent with the world, typically through Twitter posts. It took a bit of time, but it looks like all of the pieces finally fell into place.

    This map comes just a day after we learned some key details...

  • The Intro to Metal Gear Solid Looks Damn Good in Unreal Engine 4

    The Intro to Metal Gear Solid Looks Damn Good in Unreal Engine 4

    A fan took the time to remake the intro to Metal Gear Solid using Unreal Engine 4. The video, seen below, was uploaded to the Warpgazer YouTube channel and is said to be made by Erasmus Brosdau.

    The description says that everything was "real-time rendered" in engine and used a variety of Unreal marketplace assets. The intro is presented pretty much as you probably remember it, a few exceptions being some tweaks to sound effects and the start menu design.


    It's beautiful!...
