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,...

  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Announced and Partially Released Now

    You can wait a month for release or play an early release right now.

    The crazy action that is the Plants vs. Zombies franchise continues today with Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It's essentially Garden Warfare 3 but without the name. The release date is slated for October 18, but thanks to a Founder's Edition, you can actually start playing right now on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    The Founder's Edition is a bit of an odd one. You can play now, but the game still doesn't include all of the content. EA and PopCap says that...

  • Upcoming MacOS Catalina Update Will Kill All 32-bit Games

    Upcoming MacOS Catalina Update Will Kill All 32-bit Games

    Catalina will end support for all 32-bit apps, including games.

    When Apple rolls out their upcoming Catalina update for their MacOS, it will kill off the ability to run any 32-bit apps, including all 32-bit based games. This update was originally slated to hit Fall 2019 but was pushed back to the upcoming update to the operating system.

    Apple first announced this move to end 32-bit support back in early 2018. So while this shouldn't be too surprising for some people, it is still a cause for alarm for those who are using apps that were not updated...

  • Borderlands 3 PC Pre-load is Back on the Menu for Epic Games Store

    Borderlands 3 PC Pre-load is Back on the Menu for Epic Games Store

    YOLO!

    2K Games just announced that everyone who pre-ordered Borderlands 3 through the Epic Games Store, will actually have the ability to pre-load the game just like their console pals. This is quite the turnaround from roughly a month ago when Tim Sweeney said that there wouldn't be any pre-load for the game because "it's complicated."

    There is a bit of bad news on this, of course. The pre-load period will begin just two days before the game is set to be released. In addition, this will be the first major test for Epic's so far unproven...
