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.

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,...

    Cinematic and Gameplay Screens from "The Quiet Man"

    Square Enix quietly released some new media today for The Quiet Man. I'm being serious here. I didn't see any press release about it. They just up and released some new screenshots and stills from the live-action segments.

    Blizzard Says "Multiple Diablo Projects in the Works"

    In a brief video, posted on Twitter, Blizzard says that they have "multiple Diablo projects in the works." They go on to say that they will have "some things to show you later this year." At least one of those projects is probably the Diablo comic that was mentioned back in July. As for the rest, we can only guess for now.

    You can check out that video in the embedded tweet below. It should also be noted that Diablo 3 has its first themed season still underway. It's called the "Season of Greed" and it marks the 14th overall season for the game. ...

    If you're reading this, that means it's 10AM (ET) on August 8 and this scheduled post has just gone up to inform you of this very important news: An RTS game that involves a lot of circles has just been released!

    The game is called Circle Empires and it's just $7.99 (USD) with an additional 10% discount being offered for the launch week. That should probably place it right at that impulse buy mark for a lot of people, especially those who enjoy the strategy genre.

    Ubisoft has revealed the first map that will get the rework treatment for the third season of Rainbow Six: Siege.

  • Former Epic Devs Announce Music Filled Dungeon Crawler: Soundfall

    Former Epic Devs Announce Music Filled Dungeon Crawler: Soundfall

    Combining music, rhythm-based gameplay, and dungeon crawling isn't exactly a new idea, but it is one that hasn't been explored all that much. Which is why some folks may want to start taking a look at the newly announced Soundfall from some former Epic developers that make up Drastic Games.

    As you may have already guessed, Soundfall looks to combine rhythmic style gameplay with the dungeon crawling stable of action and adventure. They also decided to throw in a dash of twin-stick shooting for good measure, because why the hell not.
    Soundfall follows
