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,...

    Not just any prison, it's a Siberian Prison.

    Agent 47 is heading to prison tomorrow, July 30, in a new content update for Hitman 2. This is, of course, no ordinary prison facility. It's a Siberian prison facility, Perm-14, set in...

    Bloober Team and Lionsgate Games are showing off a bit more of Blair Witch today. This upcoming psychological horror game gets its first ever official gameplay trailer, plus two additional screenshots.

    This gameplay trailer shows off two things in particular. First, we meet Bullet, your faithful canine companion that will be with you from start to finish. Well, we hope he'll be with you through to the end. That dog better not be injured or killed in the game. That would not be cool and, if we're...

  • Bethesda Dropping Account Login Requirement for Original Doom Titles

    Bethesda Dropping Account Login Requirement for Original Doom Titles

    It was, allegedly, never meant to be a requirement.

    This past week, Bethesda pushed out the first three Doom titles for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Almost immediately it was discovered that players needed to login to a account in order to play these games. It was made all the more curious when you realize that the first two Doom titles came out starting in 1993 and have no online multiplayer component.

    Bethesda took note of the massive amount of disdain that came about from this very bizarre and wholly unnecessary...

    Doom, the one from 1993, Requires a Bethesda Account to Play on Switch

    The outrage is flowing like a river during a downpour.

    Earlier today, the first three Doom titles were revealed to be coming to all current consoles, including the Nintendo Switch. They are available right now for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. A mobile release is also coming soon for the first two titles.

    Hey, that's great news! Those are some spectacular games that everyone should play at some point. Ah, but there's a catch and it's a weird one at that.

    You need to log in at least once with a

    Madden NFL 20 Championship Series Announced

    John Madden.

    EA and the NFL announced the start of the EA Sports Madden NFL 20 Championship Series (MCS). All four Madden NFL Major tournaments will be held during key NFL moments during the season.

    These key moments include the NFL Kickoff, the NFL playoffs push, the Super Bowl, and the NFL Draft. And for those that like sponsors, you may be thrilled(?) to learn that the NFL partners of Pizza Hut and Snickers will also serve as sponsors for the MCS. Apparently these will "heighten the connection to the League."

  • Overwatch Design Team Claims Sigma's Bare Feet Are Meant to Sell the 'Mad Scientist' Look

    The design of heroes, both visually and gameplay-wise, always sparked heated debates in the Overwatch community. In fact, dozens of YouTubers “rose to fame” recording videos where they shared their thoughts and opinions regarding in-game skins. Some of these videos are so in-depth that they analyze everything from how the particular skin fits the hero’s backstory to the color palette.

    Naturally, when the latest hero, Sigma, entered the Overwatch scene, people immediately started talking. That isn’t a new phenomenon in the gaming world, and...

    Resort Boss: Golf Out Today on PC

    Build and run your own golf resort.

    It may not be SimGolf but it's perhaps the closest thing to it. Resort Boss: Golf is out of Early Access today thanks to the efforts by Excalibur Games and Gus Martin. It's a tycoon management title that allows players to create and operate their own golf resorts.

    There is even a scenario editor added that now allows players to create their own challenges. In addition, players can now add in things like a driving range or putting green if building a full course isn't something they feel like doing some days....

    Survival at any cost.
