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,...

  • Bungie Begins Damage Control Measures as Fans Become More Upset at the State of Destiny 2

    Bungie has cancelled tomorrow's scheduled stream for the upcoming Curse of Osiris Destiny 2 expansion in favor of having the heads of the studio talk about the state of the game. For weeks now, fans have started to become more and more irate at Bungie's silence and inaction when it comes to issues with the game.

    These complaints range from a severe lack of end game content, to PvP in Destiny 2 being a shell of its former self, to rewards not being, well, rewarding. The latest complaints are about the game's broken scaling experience system. See,...

    Demon's Souls Servers Shutting Down on February 28, 2018

    It's been over eight years, but all good things must come to an end. Publishers Atlus and Bandai Namco UK both confirmed that the servers for Demon's Souls will be shut down on February 28, 2018. This is a global shutdown of the services.

    This does mean that all online functionality will stop working for the game on that date. You can still obviously play the game solo but you won't get to see player messages, player deaths, and World Tendency features will be gone. Here are some of Atlus' words on the news.

    Devil May Cry 5 Rumors Surface

    Please note that as with all rumors, there is nothing official here until Capcom announces something. Take whatever you see here as "leaked" with a big grain of salt. With that said, new rumors surfaced this week on ResetERA concerning the still unannounced Devil May Cry 5. According to the rumors, the game has already been in development for roughly two years and is looking to be released some time in the fiscal year 2019 (between April 2018 and March 2019). Continuing, the plan was to announce Devil May Cry 5 at this year's PSX (December 9-10), but this id...
