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...

Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...

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...

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...

  • Fourth Battleborn Story Operation Available Today

    Fourth Battleborn Story Operation Available Today

    Gearbox and 2K released the fourth Story Operation for Battleborn today. It's called Montana and the Demon Bear and I have a strong feeling that there is a bear involved.

    In addition, the studio revealed the fifth Story Operation called Phoebe and the Heart of Ekkunar. I'm guessing there aren't any bears in that one, but one can hope.

    30 Years On, Whatever Happened to Dizzy?

    Back in 1987, long before Lara Croft emerged from a studio in Derby (in all her angular glory), a simple egg was the best video game hero the British could come up with. Named Dizzy, and created by the Oliver Twins - Philip and Andrew- the series told the story of a somersaulting adventurer with a weakness to everything, particularly hapless heroine, Daisy.

    While originally not an egg at all (Dizzy...

    Nintendo Switch Super Bowl LI Commercial

    Not going to watch Super Bowl LI this weekend? I can't really blame if you aren't. Good thing we have you covered for at least one of the commercials that will air during the game. It's for none other than the Nintendo Switch.

    There are two flavors here, one is a short form commercial, the other is an extended cut. Watch one, watch both, watch neither of them. It's no skin off my back what you choose!

  • Report: Nintendo Switch Online Service to Cost Around $25 per Year

    Report: Nintendo Switch Online Service to Cost Around $25 per Year

    According to reports coming out of Japan from Kantan Games' CEO, Dr. Serkan Toto, the annual price for the Nintendo Switch's online service will be between 2,000 to 3,000 yen. That is equal to about $17.50 to $26.50 (USD).

    That's the price per year. This is a far cry from the roughly $60 (USD) that people pay for Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus per year. This is, of course, not factoring in reduced prices during sales.
    Naturally, the prices are subject to change. This price range slated for Japan does not guarantee that it wil...

    Jury Awards Half a Billion Dollars to ZeniMax in Lawsuit Against Oculus

    Earlier today in Dallas, a jury awarded half a billion dollars to ZeniMax after finding out that Oculus co-founder, Palmer Luckey, failed to adhere to a non-disclosure agreement he had signed. This amount includes $50 million that Luckey himself has to pay to ZeniMax plus another $150 million from the other Oculus co-founder, Brendan Iribe. The main point of this case came back as a bit of a win for Oculus. ZeniMax had claimed that that Oculus stole trade secrets from ZeniMax, which the jury did not find in ZeniMax's favor. Of the $500 million payout, Oculus w...
