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,...

  • The Witcher 3 Won't Get the PS4 Pro Bump

    The Witcher 3 Won't Get the PS4 Pro Bump

    CD Projekt RED announced that they will not enhance The Witcher 3 for the PlayStation 4 Pro. This means no bump to 4K, no visual enhancements, nothing. What you see is what you get for that game.

    The studio says that they would rather focus their resources on developing Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent, the stand-alone card game based on the in-game card game of the same name in The Witcher 3.
    "Since we want to fully focus on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent, and converting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from a full HD game into a 4K one would be too much of a

    GTA Online will soon get some biker gang content courtesy of an update coming to the game. This seems to include the ability to be a Club President or a Prospect within the organization. You're going to get new motorcycles, new properties like MC Clubhouses, new weapons, and more.

  • Digital Homicide Now Wants to Sue Valve

    Digital Homicide Now Wants to Sue Valve

    Digital Homicide first sues Jim Sterling because he had the nerve to call them out on their asset flip cookie cutter games. Then, they subpoena Valve for the real names of 100 Steam users they wanted to sue because they said mean things about them. Then, Valve removes Digital Homicide's games from Steam for essentially bullying the Steam userbase. Now, Digital Homicide wants to sue Valve. Digital Homicide is the gift that keeps on giving. Here is what Digital Homicide put up on their website less than 24 hours ago with respect to this newfound desire to sue Valv...

    Kojima's Death Stranding - Co-op, Release Window, and More

    A few tweets tonight by the Kojima Productions Twitter account shed a few additional details on what we can expect from the mysterious Death Stranding.

    It seems as though the game will feature some form of co-op. Kojima Productions said that the game will feature a "new form of co-op play but will of course be fully playable in single player." So, does someone play as Norman Reedus and the other person is the baby? The team is still actively casting people for the roles in the game. They're even looking for some suggestions for who would play ...

    In speaking with USA Today, Microsoft's Publishing General Manager, Shannon Loftis, said that Xbox Scorpio will have native 4K rendering for first party games at launch.

  • Valve Removes Digital Homicide Games from Steam

    Valve Removes Digital Homicide Games from Steam

    Hey, remember yesterday when we brought that story of the critically acclaimed and award winning developer, Digital Homicide's James Romine campaign to sue 100 Steam users for $18 million? Yeah, remember how they sent a subpoena to Valve requesting the real names and information for those 100 Steam users?

    As expected, that didn't work out too well for Digital Homicide.

    If you would like to look at these entries for yourself, SteamDB has you covered. Valve has apparently issued a statement about the m...

    Digital Homicide Also Suing 100 Steam Users for $18 Million

    Not content with being a bothersome fly on Jim Sterling's wall, Indie "developer" James Romine of Digital Homicide, is now going after 100 anonymous Steam users. To make what is arguably a long (and stupid) story short, Romaine has been in a legal battle with Jim Sterling for well over a year now. Essentially, Digital Homicide accused Sterling of "assault, libel, and slander" after he put out a video blasting them for their low-effort and low-quality games. You know, as Jim Sterling tends to do with games that are out on Steam Greenlight and even Steam Early Acces...

    Digimon World: Next Order Coming to North America Just for the PlayStation 4

    After a rollercoaster of a day with no fewer than three press releases being sent, it seems as though Bandai Namco has finally decided on the fate of the PlayStation Vita version of Digimon World: New Order for North America. That fate is... not good. It seems as though the final statement is that Digimon World: New Order is only coming to the PlayStation 4 in North America in early 2017.
    Digimon World: Next Order begins when players are sucked into the Digital World to discover it is under siege by Machinedramons. Rescued by two Digimon from impending doom,

    Battlefield 1 Beta Drew in Record Numbers

    EA and DICE are just tickled pink to inform the masses that the beta for Battlefield 1 was the "biggest in EA history." Over 13.2 million people participated in the nine-day long beta period. Naturally, the most used classes ended up being the Assault and Scout.

    And because everyone loves infographics, here's one now!
