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...

    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...

    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.
