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,...

  • Changes Coming to PUBG Matchmaking

    Changes Coming to PUBG Matchmaking

    Faster, more fair matches.

    A new post on Steam outlines PUBG Corp.'s plans to improve matchmaking in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The gist of it is that they plan on creating a more fair playing field with this updated matchmaking system, while also attempting to reduce the wait times in certain regions.

    Daegon Kim from PUBG's Matchmaking System Development Team provides a very lengthy and comprehensive explanation as to what the team hopes to accomplish with some of these changes. A shortened form of the post can be read below. If you'd like...

  • Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Stop monkeying around.

    On October 29, 2019, those on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will get to pick up and purchase and play Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. This same game will also hit the PC via Steam at some point during Winter 2019.

    This was originally released for the Nintendo Wii back in 2006. Of course, back then such a thing like HD was a mere dream. Folks back then were stuck at pitiful resolutions like 480p or even 576i. Ewwww. Could you even imagine? Thankfully this HD release in 2019 will include updated graphics,...

  • Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

    Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

    No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

    The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

    In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that...

  • Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

    This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

    The original plan from Red Candle Games was...

  • Respawn to Force Apex Legends Cheaters to Play Each Other

    Respawn to Force Apex Legends Cheaters to Play Each Other

    That's one way of dealing with cheaters.

    Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends, says that they will soon begin to implement a new method of anti-cheat in their still fairly popular battle royale title. Unlike many other methods of anti-cheat, this one aims to issue softbans against known cheaters.

    In short, this means that people who are detected to be cheating will be matched up only against others who have been found to be cheating. These people will not be matched up against those who are legitimate players. That is, of course,...

  • Gears 5 Does Away with Smoking

    Gears 5 Does Away with Smoking

    Smoking is bad, but violence...?

    Gears 5 will not include any depictions of smoking. The upcoming third-person shooter, slated for release on September 10 on PC and Xbox One, does away with all tobacco use after a push from the Truth Initiative. The anti-smoking organization, Truth Initiative, approached Turner, the company that owns the rights to broadcast Gears 5 ELeague esports matches. Turner, after speaking with Truth Initiative, spoke to The Coalition about the removal of the use of tobacco from the game.

    Ion Maiden Renamed to Ion Fury for Probably Obvious Reasons

    Classic 90s FPS has a new name.

    Ion Maiden billed itself as an "old-school FPS" similar in style to the classic games from the 90s. It entered into Early Access a little while back and it plans to exit Early Access on Thursday, August 15. On that date, the game will toss round after round on the PC, with console releases on the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One coming later.
