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...

    Obsidian Announces New Co-op Survival Game at X019

    The first game from Obsidian under Microsoft is a co-op survival game.

    At X019, Obsidian and Xbox Game Studios announced a new co-op survival game. Grounded is a first-person game that tasks you and a friend with surviving the dangers of a suburban backyard. That's right, you are the size of an ant. You're still a human but you're teeny and some might say tiny.

    A little film by the name of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids has been preparing me for this game since the early 90s.

    Grounded is looking to be released Spring 2020 for the Xbox...

  • The Game Awards Partners with the New Jumanji Film

    The Game Awards Partners with the New Jumanji Film

    When I think "video games" I also think of Hollywood film sequels that are remakes of an old film based on a board game.

    On December 12, you will be able to watch the The Game Awards for 2019. If you happen to be in or near a town with a Cinemark theater, you may also get to watch the new Jumanji movie right after The Game Awards are over.

    It's one hell of an odd pairing but it is a pairing that has been made nonetheless. This is thanks to a partnership between Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards, Cinemark Theaters, and Sony Pictures....

    Bee Simulator is Out Now on Consoles and PC

    Beecome the bee you were always meant to bee.

    Bee Simulator is out today on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. You can now pollinate until you cannot possibly pollinate any more in an "urban park inspired by (the) famous Central Park."

    As a bee, you will collect pollen, fight off wasps, interact with other bees, and take on a bunch of different threats. One of those threats is man. You see, humans are looking to chop down the tree where you make your home. That's bad. Humans are bad. It's up to you, as a bee, to save...

    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...
