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.

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...

  • 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!...
