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.

    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.

    The latest character reveal for Dragon Ball FighterZ is Cooler. Cooler than what? No, it's just Cooler. You know, the son of King Cold and the older brother of Frieza. Cooler.

Cooler also apparently "approaches opponents with more caution" and he finds "ways to ensure the defeat of his enemies rather than acting on blind rage, power, or ego." Before we get to the reveal trailer, I'll also note here that Goku and Vegeta (with t heir original outfits...
