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."

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...

    The violent VR gladiator sim is now a full game.

    Devolver Digital and developer Free Lives have pulled GORN out of Early Access today. The game is now a fully fledged release for SteamVR and Oculus devices. If you don't already know, GORN is a cartoony but violent gladiator sim.

    GORN spent roughly two years in Steam Early Access and ended up being one of the top ten games for VR as far as sales are concerned. At least,...

This money is earned for Frank Reynolds, who is portrayed by Danny DeVito in the TV show.

  • Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    This seems unnecessary.

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a battle royale game that came out in 2017 as an Early Access title. In all this time, nobody once seriously questioned why 100 people were jumping out of an airplane to murder each other in remote locations. Apparently, somebody at PUBG Corp. finally raised that question because the game is getting a backstory for its upcoming fourth season.

    It is every bit as unnecessary as you are probably imagining it to be. An official "Season 4 Cinematic Trailer" for PUBG opens with a shot...

    Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    No other changes mentioned.

    Nintendo revealed that they are releasing an updated version of their regular Nintendo Switch soon. The only mentioned differences are the improved battery life when compared to the original model of the Switch. That is it. There are no other differences mentioned.

  • Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Plus, try it free for one month.

    Back at E3, Ubisoft announced that they would soon launch their own subscription service. This service that they're calling Uplay+ would function much like EA's Access and Origin Access programs in that you will be able to pay a monthly fee to gain access to an ever growing library of old and new titles from the publisher. Really, the only major differences that I can see here is the fact that Uplay+ may not include a discount on game purchases like EA has with their Access program.

    Today, Ubisoft revealed their...

  • No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.

    A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

    Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally shot those rumors down but not before letting them simmer and stew for a...
