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,...

    GOG Offering Extended Refund Policy for No Man's Sky

    Just yesterday, No Man's Sky received the big "NEXT" update and with it came the long-awaited multiplayer component. Well, that is unless you have the GOG version on the PC. Apparently the multiplayer component is coming later this year for the GOG version and even then it may not have cross-play with the Steam version.
    "From launch, the DRM-free edition of No Man's Sky will include all single-player content introduced by NEXT: third-person mode, upgraded visuals, better base building, player customization, and more. However the multiplayer component will not be

    WWE 2K19 Wooooo! Edition Announced Featuring, You Guessed It, Ric Flair

    The Nature Boy himself, Ric Flair, will grace the cover of the special WWE 2K19 Wooooo! Edition release of the annual wrestling game. I'm not going to lie, that's a pretty sweet name for a special edition of a game right there. What might not be so great is the $129.99 (USD) price tag that is being asked for it. That's just too rich for my blood but you might be interested!

    Realm Royale Headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

    Starting next week with a closed beta, Realm Royale is making the move to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In order to get things started, you can sign up for the closed beta for either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One. The game is also currently available through Steam. And if you still need more information, I'm here for you.

    Realm Royale is a class based battle royale style game. It may look a lot like Fortnite but it's a bit easier to get into because that whole building thing doesn't exist in this game. At least, that's my opinion of it. I happen...

    TheMexicanRunner Beats Battletoads Turbo Tunnel Blindfolded without Dying

    Beating Battletoads in 15.5 minutes is one thing. It's certainly no small feat and it is precisely what speedrunner TheMexicanRunner did this week at ESA Summer. That's quite impressive as it is, but he decided to one-up himself right after his run. TheMexicanRunner played through the dreaded Turbo Tunnel level of Battletoads without dying. Not only that, but he did so while blinded by a bag situated over his head. The bag had an adorable cat print on it. Here is TheMexicanRunner playing the Battletoads Turbo Tunnel level while blindfolded all in one attempt. Thi...

  • Fallout 76 Beta Announced for October, But Don't Expect an Invite on the First Day

    Bethesda has finally revealed some additional details about their upcoming beta for Fallout 76. Sorry, the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break-it Early Test Application) as it's being called.

    First off, we now know that the B.E.T.A. is scheduled for October, with the Xbox One version getting first dibs. PlayStation 4 and PC players will get access to the beta shortly after. We obviously don't have an exact date yet for any of these, only that it will be in October. This means that the span of time between the B.E.T.A. and the planned November 14 release date...
