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,...

    The latest game from the Until Dawn devs.

    Supermassive Games have released The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan today on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This is a new thriller from the same team that brought us Until Dawn on the PlayStation 4.

    Man of Medan allows you to control five different characters, who can all live or die based on the decisions you make as a player. As with Until Dawn, Man of Medan includes a number of branching story paths, which should lend itself nicely to more than one playthrough.

  • Sega Reveals 'Our Genesis Story' Ahead of Mini Launch

    Sega Reveals 'Our Genesis Story' Ahead of Mini Launch

    They asked and you answered.

    On the last day of July, Sega put out the call to all Sega fans to share their own stories involving the Genesis. They asked and you answered. Today, Sega revealed the "Our Genesis Story" ahead of the release of the Genesis Mini on September 19, 2019.

    It's been about 30 years since the Genesis was initially released. The console was made and sold from 1988 through to 1997. That's one hell of a long lifetime for a console. To say that it had a few fans would be a bit of an understatement.

  • Jumanji: The Video Game Reveal Trailer

    Jumanji: The Video Game Reveal Trailer

    In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Rock lays the smack down on your candy ass.

    Hey, so they're making a video game based off of the Jumanji film. No, not the old Jumanji film, the more recent one that came out in 2017. What better time than two years after release to make a video game about a rebooted movie. I suppose the sequel is coming out this year(?), but still. Why not make a video game based off of the actual Jumanji board game?

    You and three teammates are tasked with recovering the JEWELS (their emphasis) in order to save Jumanji....
