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,...

    Children of Morta Delayed for Nintendo Switch

    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...

    Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is Out Now

    The latest from Ubisoft is here and it's mediocre.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is now available to everyone. While some players were able to play a few days ago, those that did not spring for the more pricey versions had to wait until today.

    Players are now free to explore the fictional land of Auroa on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Up to four players can join forces to take down Lt. Col. Cole D. Walker (Jon Bernthal) and his group of Wolves. Wolves in this case are a group of soldiers not, you know, actual wolves.

  • Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Not bad for a game released three days ago.

    Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 35 million downloads across iOS and Android devices. According to the publisher, this game has been downloaded faster than any other first-person or third-person mobile action game. Of course, this factoid is based off of Activision's own internal estimates.

    Still, Call of Duty: Mobile was released on October 1, a mere three days ago. To have already hit 35 million downloads is still quite impressive. The game is a free download that...

    The Tiny Bang Story is Out Now on Nintendo Switch

    Solve puzzles in order to save a tiny planet.

    Ellada Games and developer Colibri Games just released The Tiny Bang Story today on the Nintendo Switch. This game tasks you with solving a bunch of puzzles, exploring, and trying to restore Tiny Planet after a meteor broke it into numerous puzzle-shaped pieces.

    The visuals are hand-drawn and have a certain charm to them. The game is being sold for just $9.99 (USD) for the Nintendo Switch. I don't know how long this game is but $10 for a game sounds pretty good.

    The Tiny Bang Story is...

  • Gaming Projectors vs Home Theater Units

    Gaming Projectors vs Home Theater Units

    The family room is no longer just a place where the family gathers to watch television or movies. Now, parents and children alike use the family room as a place to play video games. Statistics show that in the United States more than 150 million Americans play video games.

    A mistake that some families make is setting up their family room without taking video game playing into consideration. This is especially true when talking about their selection of projectors.

    But you might ask, aren’t all projectors the same? A lot of people have opted to...

    Epic Responds to Complaints About Fortnite Cross-Platform Play

    Developer will continue with their plans despite fan complaints.

    Cross-platform play seems to be all the rage these days and it's only going to keep gaining support as time goes on. However, it seems as though some fans of the still popular battle royale game, Fortnite, aren't too keen on the idea.

    A recent change to the game introduced skill-based matchmaking. This is a system that tries to put players of similar skill together in the same match. Players noticed that with this new system they were being pitted against players across different...

    Death Stranding 'The Drop' Trailer

    A new Death Stranding promotional trailer is out.

    There is a new, short promo trailer out today for Death Stranding. Watch as Sam Porter Bridges tries to reconnect a broken nation. Maybe he'll use bridges to do this. Bridges that will help him to transport his deliveries. Maybe he'll eventually get to make portals that help him to bridge together large distances.

    Only the most subtle of symbolism from Hideo Kojima.

    Death Stranding is out on November 8, 2019 for the PlayStation 4. ...

    Randy Pitchford, Gearbox, and Their Former Lawyer Drop Lawsuits

    All parties resolve "misunderstandings" as evidence exonerates Randy Pitchford.

    If you need to get up to speed on what is going on here, I suggest you check out the previous update from August where we go over the events of this long legal battle between Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, and Gearbox's former lawyer, Wade Callender. In short, Pitchford and Callender were suing each other over various grievances. Everyone involved came off as incredibly scummy in their own way. Like seriously, there is a lot to take in with all of this from stealing money...
