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,...

    Halo Infinite Creative Director Leaves 343 Industries

    Tim Longo says farewell to 343.

    The creative director for Halo Infinite, Tim Longo, is no longer employed at 343 Industries. His departure comes just a few weeks after he had moved to a different role within the company a few weeks back. The details surrounding his move to that "new role" are quite scarce.

    His departure from 343 also comes at a time where Halo Infinite is very deep in development. The game isn't slated to be released until late 2020, but it has been in development at the Microsoft owned studio for around four years...

  • Ion Fury Leaves Early Access

    Ion Fury Leaves Early Access

    The 90s are kind of back.

    A modern release of an "old-school FPS" arrives today with the release of Ion Fury. This new game from Voidpoint, 3D Realms, and 1C Entertainment plays out a lot like the first-person shooter games of yesteryear. You have big, fairly open levels that reward exploration. These levels are packed with a ton of enemies, maze like corridors, and a lot of gib producing weapons of destruction.

    Today marks the release of the game on the PC as it leaves Early Access. You can pick up Ion Fury from either Steam, GOG,...

  • Lead Producer on Anthem, Ben Irving, Leaves BioWare

    Lead Producer on Anthem, Ben Irving, Leaves BioWare

    This probably isn't a good sign.

    Anthem has had its fair share of disappointment since even before the game was launched back in the far off time of February 2019. Today, yet another potential black mark can be added to the books. Lead producer for Anthem, Ben Irving, announced that he is leaving BioWare for another studio.

    This may not be a sign of anything, but it rarely ends up being a good sign when the lead producer on a project decides to quit and go elsewhere. BioWare Edmonton has already moved on to Dragon Age development while BioWare...
