Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

For Google, today is a bit of a mixed bag. The good news for them is that they just soft launched their first dedicated gaming platform, Stadia. The bad news is that it's reportedly a "monumental flop."

Today, those who purchased the $130 Founder's Edition of Stadia are probably awaiting its delivery. The physical contents largely consisting of a unique Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Though you had to plunk down $130 for this, there was actually no guarantee that you would get...

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...

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...

    Square Enix released an update for the Steam release of Chrono Trigger today that fans have been waiting for. The biggest change in today's update is the return of the game's original visuals.

    It's Contraband Week in GTA Online

    Rockstar Games has proclaimed this week to be "Contraband Week" in GTA Online. Outside of the usual double RP and double GTA$ events, this week will include some more stuff. Sorry, I haven't actually read beyond the headline yet so I'm not sure yet what all it includes. Let's see, there seems to be double RP and GTA$ Gunrunning Sell Missions, plus 50% faster research for Bunkers, an extended double RP and GTA$ for Target Assault from last week, and discounts on various Weaponized and High-End vehicles from Warstock Cache & Carry. Rockstar has also passed along a...

    Michael Ironside Returns as Sam Fisher in Ghost Recon Wildlands

    I somehow had no idea about this news until about a minute ago, but Ubisoft revealed today that Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher is back. Back in the sense that he'll be a special partner brought in for a special Ghost Recon Wildlands event. The very short announcement says that the "full briefing" will be on April 9.

    Perhaps the best part about all of this? Michael Ironside is back as the voice of Sam Fisher. I can only assume (perhaps hope and pray even) that this means there's a new Splinter Cell game reveal coming shortly.
