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,...

  • Yakuza: Like a Dragon Trailer Teases a Fight Against a Familiar Face

    Yakuza: Like a Dragon Trailer Teases a Fight Against a Familiar Face

    Series staple Kazuma Kiryu returns to teach the new guy some old tricks.

    A new trailer came out today for Yakuza 7, or as it's actually called in Western markets, Yakuza: Like a Dragon. This new trailer is over ten minutes long and is presented entirely in Japanese with no dubs or subtitles.

    However, I can say that the trailer focuses on Masato Arakawa, a character presumed to be the main antagonist in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. According to some translations done by DualShockers, Masato is the son of Masumi Arakawa, a father-figure to the game's...

    Shenmue 3 Launch Trailer

    A headline very few thought they'd read.

    A launch trailer for Shenmue 3 was released today ahead of its November 19 release date. I'm sure this is a trailer few thought you would actually see, especially with the questionable crowdfunding campaign and Epic exclusive shenanigans that have gone on.

    But if you stuck with the game through all of that and are still somehow looking forward to Shenmue 3, next week is your week. Let's see what PlayStation 4 and Epic Games Store users have to look forward to. Maybe after all is said and done you can begin...

    Sonic Looks Fantastic in New Trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

    Now this is a good looking hedgehog!

    Back in April of this year, the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was unleashed upon the world. I say "unleashed" not because of the terrible Sonic Unleashed game, but because of the unspeakable horrors Sonic's movie design thrust upon an unsuspecting world.

    A few days later, the movie's director, Jeff Fowler, said that they were going to make Sonic look less weird. In late May, the movie was officially delayed until Valentine's Day 2020. Nobody really knew what to expect from the redesign...

    We Happy Few DLC 'We All Fall Down' Releases on November 19

    This will be the game's last piece of DLC.

    Gearbox Publishing and developer Compulsion Games announced the release date for We All Fall Down, the final piece of DLC for We Happy Few. Though the original game came out near the tail end of 2018, Compulsion Games has continued to support the title with a number of content updates and general updates here and there. Perhaps it's time to return to the game to see how it has improved since I reviewed it back in August of 2018.

    In We All Fall Down, you play as Victoria Byng, a woman on a mission to...
