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,...

  • Epic Nerfs Giant Mechs in Fortnite

    Epic Nerfs Giant Mechs in Fortnite

    Taking a nerf bat to the mech that everyone hates.

    The new, giant mechs in the latest Fortnite season aren't winning too many fans over. In fact, some people outright despise the mech and other changes that came about in Season 10. Epic hasn't backed down from keeping them in the game (for now), but they did make some nerfs to the way that mech, called B.R.U.T.E., operates. Perhaps Respawn had the right idea when they decided not to include the Titans in Apex Legends.

    Another big nerf comes to the Junk Rift. In short: Epic has temporarily disabled...

    DICE Cancels Competitive Mode for Battlefield V

    A 5v5 competitive game mode never quite got off the ground.

    DICE has officially cancelled its previously announced 5v5 competitive mode for Battlefield V. The company says that they made this decision after turning their attention more to "improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want." Despite neither of these two things happening in quite some time, the decision has been made and those looking for a small-scale war are left looking elsewhere.

    The team made this announcement today in the latest &q...

    Xbox, invade my privacy.

    According to multiple sources speaking with Vice, Microsoft had hired contractors to listen to audio picked up and recorded by Xbox One consoles.

    Reportedly, human listeners, the contractors in this case, were brought into the mix in an effort to improve how the Xbox One understood voice commands. However, these contractors say that their jobs also saw them listening to the audio of multiple personal conversations in cases where the assistant was unintentionally triggered on the Xbox One.
