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,...

    You should probably be aware that details for over 1.5 million ESEA user accounts was leaked today from a hacker after he failed to extort $100,000 from the ESEA. The ESEA is a company that is mainly known for running a fairly popular Counter-Strike league.

  • Injustice 2 Launches May 16

    Injustice 2 Launches May 16

    Both Ed Boon and the official Injustice 2 Twitter accounts confirmed the release date for the game.

    That date, in case you blindly clicked this without even reading the headline, is May 16, 2017. That is the release date for the Americas. The platforms? I'm going to assume that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are safe bets.

  • Microsoft Cancels Scalebound

    Microsoft Cancels Scalebound

    Scalebound was an action RPG in development by Platinum Games for the Xbox One. I say was because Microsoft has officially cancelled the project after spending about four years in development.

    The rumors started to swirl earlier today but all doubt was removed when Microsoft issued the following statement to the public.
    "After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound. We're working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State

  • After Two Years Elite Dangerous Players Finally Encounter Thargoid Alien Race

    A search that has been two years in the making came to a head yesterday when Elite Dangerous players made "first contact" with the game's fabled alien race. For the past two years, rumors and hints of these aliens were scattered around the vast reaches of Elite Dangerous.

    Yesterday, players finally got their long-awaited close encounter with the Thargoid alien race.

    The first sighting came from Xbox One player DP Sayre. The below video is a third-party's upload of DP Sayre's video but done through YouTube (for easier embedding). ...

  • Daybreak to Close Landmark Just Six Months After Launch

    Daybreak to Close Landmark Just Six Months After Launch

    The sandbox building title, Landmark, which was slated to serve as the building blocks (almost literally) for the now cancelled EverQuest Next, will itself close next month. If you followed and understood that verbal diarrhea of a sentence, you're a better person than I.

    Yes, Landmark will close down on February 21, roughly six months after it was "launched." The voxel building sandbox title has been in development limbo for numerous months now after the fate of EverQuest Next was decided last March.
