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...

  • Giant's Shadow - Battlefield 1 Patch Notes for December 13

    Giant's Shadow - Battlefield 1 Patch Notes for December 13

    The patch notes for tomorrow's (December 13) update for Battlefield 1 were released earlier than normal. Typically, we're sitting here waiting for the patch notes to drop hours after the actual update is out. Not so for this one!

    This is the "Giant's Shadow" update. A new map arrives that places you in the Battle of Selle on a cold autumn day in 1918. Of course, despite this map pack being free, those with Premium will still get it early (tomorrow), while the rest have to wait until December 20.

    This update will include some non-time gated content too. This includes a Spectator Mode, a new game setting that gives everyone a bolt-action rifle (yay, historical accuracy), and plenty of changes and balancing for classes, vehicles, maps, and more. It has a Model 10-A nerf (how this wasn't done before is a mystery). It has a fix for 'some' DirectX 11 hanging issues. It's got a little bit of everything!...
