Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

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

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

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...
 

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.

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...

  • Final Fantasy Trading Card Game Finally Coming to North America

    Final Fantasy Trading Card Game Finally Coming to North America

    There has been a Final Fantasy trading card game that's been out in Japan for like six years and has had 15 expansions with 3.5 million booster packs sold. Did you know this? I didn't know this. I don't think anybody outside of Japan knew this, but it's apparently true. Square Enix said it's true and I believe them.

    With that said, Square Enix announced today that the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game (FFTCG) will finally arrive in North America on October 28.
    The FINAL FANTASY Trading Card Game ("FFTCG") is the result of a close collaboration

    New Movie-Inspired Games to Be Released Soon

    Movie-based video games have never been truly successful. Not in the days of DOS, when the shooters based on Terminator and Aliens were flops, not later, when titles like "Enter the Matrix" did much worse than their silver-screen counterpart. Movie-based video games never tried to be successful on their own merit but served as means to extract a few extra bucks from a franchise. Star Wars games are an exception, of course. There is one category of video games (if we can include them into this category) that are very successful if they choose a movie or a TV show a...

    Advertising Standards Investigating No Man's Sky for False Advertising

    The UK watchdog group known as the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have revealed that they are launching an investigation into No Man's Sky. The group has confirmed that they are launching an investigation after receiving "several complaints" about false advertising.

    Interestingly, Valve is also involved in this due to the content of No Man's Sky as it appears on their Steam Store listing. A posting on Reddit details some of what the ASA is taking a look at.
    In the ASA response, they say that both Hello Games and Valve have a joint responsibility,
