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,...

    Siegfried Confirmed for Soulcalibur VI

    Sure, we know enough about Geralt, and others that are coming to Soulcalibur VI, so let's move on and get some fresh meat in here to talk about! The latest reveal today is for Siegfried Schtauffen, a familiar name to those familiar with the franchise.

    Check out his reveal trailer below and you may learn a few new things. For instance, I had no idea he even had a last name. He's been around since the start and I honestly didn't know this.
    His story began in the original Soul Edge, when Siegfried appeared as a young German man with short blond

    Critical Consensus: God of War for PlayStation 4 is One of 2018's Best Games

    The reviews for the new PlayStation 4 God of War started to come out early this morning and hot damn, it looks like it's a pretty good game. Alright, "pretty good" might be an understatement here because it's sitting at a 95 overall rating through OpenCritic and 94 on Metacritic. This places it in the top 0.1% of all games currently reviewed on OpenCritic. Both sites don't have any reviews that are lower than 80% as of the time of this posting. Let's see what some outlets that aren't Total Gaming Network have to say about their time with God of War. ...

    Multiplayer Horror Game Daemonical Announced for Steam Early Access

    Daemonical will soon (in May) be released on Steam Early Access. What is Daemonical? I'm glad you asked. Daemonical is a multiplayer game where you try to survive on a remote island-- Hey wait! It's not a survival game! It's an asymmetrical mutliplayer PvP horror game!

    Here is part of the very lengthy "about" section of the game from Steam. Maybe this will give you a better idea of what the game is actually about.
