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...

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...

  • Total War: Warhammer II Dark Elves Cinematic Trailer

    Total War: Warhammer II Dark Elves Cinematic Trailer

    As you assumed already from the headline, a new cinematic trailer for Total War: Warhammer II Dark Elves is now available for you to enjoy. You know, assuming you enjoy Total War, or Warhammer, or Dark Elves, or trailers that are cinematic. Hopefully you enjoy some combination of the above.
    Even the noblest warrior casts a dark shadow, and so it is with the race of Elves. The High Elves may be paragons of virtue, but their closest kin represent all that is foul and depraved in the Elven soul. Led from the obsidian wastes of Naggaroth by the Witch King

  • LawBreakers Dev Gives Worst Excuse Ever Heard for Not Porting Game to Switch

    LawBreakers Dev Gives Worst Excuse Ever Heard for Not Porting Game to Switch

    Sure, we've heard already that the Switch just isn't powerful enough to run the latest and greatest titles at adequate resolutions, with adequate framerates, or without making significant cuts to other aspects of the game's visuals. That's all well and good and in many cases it's a perfectly valid excuse.

    Then we have Dan Nanni, the Lead Designer for LawBreakers coming along and giving us what could possibly be the worst excuse I've ever heard for why they aren't currently looking at bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch. This interview comes to us...

  • Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Can Now Be Purchased Without DLC

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Can Now Be Purchased Without DLC

    I hadn't realized it, but apparently Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was being sold as a full priced title that included the DLC in that price? Apparently the fans weren't too happy about this, which is why CI Games announced today that a stand-alone version without the DLC can now be purchased through Steam. This stand-alone version will go for $29.99 (USD). It will include all of the patches but none of the added DLC. If you purchase this cheaper version of the game and end up wanting the DLC later, you can purchase the season pass separately for $19.99. ...
