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...

  • CS:GO Dust 2 Getting a Makeover Soon

    CS:GO Dust 2 Getting a Makeover Soon

    The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developer Twitter just sent out word (two hours ago) that Dust 2 is getting a lovely makeover soon. The tweet states that the updated version of the map will be released for testing via the next beta depot for CS:GO. While I'll try to keep an eye out for it, chances are the diehard fans out there will know about it long before I ever get news up about it anyway. From the looks of the included image, Valve seems to be returning to the old school 4:3 aspect ratio for this update. Exciting! ...

  • Review: BetaNOX Ultimate Energy Drink (Berry Lemon Blast and Citrus Blast)

    Review: BetaNOX Ultimate Energy Drink (Berry Lemon Blast and Citrus Blast)

    How do I play this?

    I like energy drinks. I started to get a SoBe Citrus Energy every so often back in college. On a whim I then tried a SoBe No Fear. Hey, I liked it! So then I bought more of them. At the time, I did not drink coffee, and I tried to stay away from soft drinks while I had classes during the day. From there I branched out, trying to discover myself broaden my horizons to see what other energy drinks I may enjoy. I found out that Red Bull was "okay" but a bit too overpriced. Monster tasted like liquid chalk and, surprisingly, I quickly f...

  • Pete Hines Disturbed that "Wolfenstein Can be Seen as a Controversial Political Statement"

    Last night, the Wolfenstein II Twitter account would be so brazen as to say "Make America Nazi-Free Again" in a tweet that included a short, new trailer along with the hashtag of #NoMoreNazis. A bunch of Nazis and Nazi sympathizers took offense to the tweet, claiming that they are being attacked by the Wolfenstein II marketing. They feel as though Bethesda and Machine Games are making games, specifically Wolfenstein II, too political. Imagine, Wolfenstein, a franchise that has been around for over 30 years that, from the start, has been all about killing Naz...

    Epic Promises to Combat Fortnite Battle Royale Cheating

    Cheating in Fortnite Battle Royale seems to be a problem. At least, that's what I hear from people on the Internet. Specifically, that's what Epic Games is telling us since it's not like I go around talking to people about Fortnite Battle Royale.

    But yeah, cheaters! They suck. Epic knows this. Fortnite community person, Nathan Mooney, explains what's going to happen with Fortnite Battle Royale anti-cheat.

    HITMAN Team Announces Upcoming Announcement (Not Season 2)

    It's like everyone these days is just trying to ape a page from my playbook, I swear. In the latest "announcement of an announcement" series, Io-Interactive announced that they will have something to announce later this month for HITMAN.

    Sadly, their pre-announcement announcement says that what they're announcing isn't "Season 2" for HITMAN. Cue the sad music now.
