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,...

  • Battlefield V Teaser Points Towards WWII Setting

    Battlefield V Teaser Points Towards WWII Setting

    Earlier today, the official Battlefield Twitter account provided just a tiny little peak at Battlefield V. In the teaser, you see a few things. First and foremost, you see a man saying "shh" but you also see a bit of the game's HUD. The HUD seems like standard stuff for a Battlefield game. But what's that? Are those the flags for the British and German forces? Why yes, I do believe that is the case. Meaning that it's not going to be a Vietnam setting as some people have speculated over the previous few days and will instead be the WWII setting most others figu...

  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Launches to Early Access Today on PC and Mac

  • Resident Evil 7 Coming to Switch via Experimental Cloud Streaming

    Resident Evil 7 Coming to Switch via Experimental Cloud Streaming

    So the good news here is that Resident Evil 7 is coming to the Nintendo Switch! The bad news is that it's only coming out in Japan. The potentially worse newsis that it's only being made available as a cloud based streaming game. I suppose that's why they're actually calling it Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version there.

    Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version seems to be the first streaming only game that has been announced for the Switch. The "download" for the game is just 45MB but you will obviously need to have a constant, strong connection to the Internet in...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Not Coming to Nintendo Switch

    It seemed like 2018 would be the year that Call of Duty came to the Nintendo Switch but uh, I guess not. According to an interview Twinfinite conducted with Treyarch's Senior Producer Yale Miller and Gameplay Designer Matt Scronce, there are just no plans to bring Black Ops 4 to the Switch.
    Hey, maybe they just didn't have...

  • Metro Exodus Delayed Until Early 2019

    Metro Exodus Delayed Until Early 2019

    We thought that Metro Exodus would be released in Q3 of 2018. We thought that because up until this week, that was factually correct. Alas, we must now wait until Q1 2019 to play the game. Let's find out just why that is.

    Deep Silver provided a statement as to why the game was pushed back until next year.
    The development of Metro Exodus is progressing well; we are all really excited by what we are seeing. We have been constantly reviewing the games progress to ensure that we deliver a product that gamers and fans of the Metro series want and

  • New Prey Achievements Point Once More Towards the Moon

    New Prey Achievements Point Once More Towards the Moon

    If you've been following the Prey Twitter account for any length of time, you may have noticed that they've been dropping some pretty serious hints that something is coming soon. It's long been believed that there would be some Moon DLC coming and today's latest tease kind of confirms it.

    The Steam version of Prey was updated today with ten new achievements, which you can see here. The achievements, based on the lyrics to R.E.M.'s Man on the Moon, obviously point towards the Moon being the next destination for more action and scares. ...
