Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Valve is straight up calling this a "full-length" game that just happens to require a VR device to experience. Pre-orders are available now, months ahead of the game's currently planned release in March 2020. A pre-order discount brings the $59.99 (USD) price down...
 

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...

Better late than never.

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.

  • Everspace - Encounters Expansion Arrives this Month; 4K Support Hitting Xbox One X in 2018

    Today, Rockfish Games announced Everspace - Encounters, the first major expansion for the "roguelike space shooter." This expansion is slated to hit at the end of this month, October, for the PC. This expansion release goes hand in hand with a promised free 4K update for the Xbox One X version of the game. This 4K update will arrive in early February 2018. I should perhaps clarify something here. The wording of the press release is a bit confusing. I'm not 100% sure that his expansion will hit the Xbox One version this month when the PC release happens. It seems, f...

    Assassin's Creed Origins Video Focuses on Stealth and Freedom of Choice

    If you don't like your Assassin's Creed Origins media to have a touch of humor with it, perhaps this is more your style. Ubisoft also released a new video today that focuses on the use of stealth. You remember stealth, right? It's only been a staple of the franchise from the beginning.

  • The Witcher 3 PlayStation 4 Pro Patch Enables 4K

    The Witcher 3 PlayStation 4 Pro Patch Enables 4K

    The Witcher 3 on the PlayStation 4 just got that much better for those of you rocking a PlayStation 4 Pro console. CD Projekt RED released a patch today that includes 4K support along with a very slight boost to performance. The actual update is relatively small, so I wouldn't fret too much about it killing your bandwidth. However, since updates are usually cumulative when being calculated, you will need something like 20GB of free space on your storage device. People are already busy arguing about if it's true 4K or if it's using checkerboard rendering....

  • Fortnite Hits 7 Million Players

    Fortnite Hits 7 Million Players

    Fortnite sure has been busy these past couple of months. The game has grown to over 7 million players, which is about 6 million more players than it had at last check. Of course, that "last check" was only for the Fortnite Battle Royale game mode, so we were told. Today's milestone seems to be for all of Fortnite, though the accompanying image specifically says Fortnite Battle Royale. You know what? It's a lot of people playing some form of "Fortnite." 7 million people to be more precise. That number will more than likely grow with more people wanting to ...

    Andrew House (pictured above with Hideo Kojima) is stepping down as the president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
