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,...

  • Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    No solid ETA on when they will be either.

    If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

    The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include...

    Anthony Davis and Dwyane Wade Named NBA 2K20 Cover Athletes

    Time to shoot some hoops again.

    The cover athletes for the various SKUs of NBA 2K20 were announced today. The upcoming release of the annual basketball game will feature not one but two different NBA stars. They are Anthony Davis and Dwyane Wade.

    Davis is a six-time NBA All-Star, a three-time All-NBA First Team, an Olympic gold medalist, and a three-time member of the NBA All-Defensive Team. He will appear on the cover of the Standard and Deluxe Editions of NBA 2k20. Dwyane Wade is also an Olympic gold medalist, a 13-time NBA All-Star, and the...

  • Pigeon Simulator Announced

    Pigeon Simulator Announced

    Viral hit becoming a game.

    There was apparently a short gif released in June that showed off someone playing as a pigeon. I haven't seen it but apparently those that did kind of loved the idea. I suppose that's why game developer Kevin "KevKev" Suckert announced today that he is working on a full game based on the idea of being a pigeon.

    It's called Pigeon Simulator and it will be published by Bossa Studios. You may recall Bossa from their work on Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread. If ever there was a match made in heaven, it's Bossa...

    Types of Jackpot Slots and How They Work


    When it comes to winning slots, everybody already knows what they want - they want to win. However, it is not easy getting the gains that one longs for. It takes a lot of research, practice, and even some lost pennies.

    What Are the Different Kinds Falling Under This Category?

  • Remedy Now Controls the Alan Wake IP

    Remedy Now Controls the Alan Wake IP

    Alan Wake teases more platforms.

    Remedy Entertainment has regained the publishing rights to the Alan Wake franchise from Microsoft.

    The development studio is currently working on Control, but they apparently found a bit of time to acquire the rights to the horror-action romp starring an author. The company told investors that they would earn €2.5 million on royalties for "previously released games" this fiscal year.

    Alan Wake was released back in 2010 as an Xbox 360 exclusive title. The game focuses on an author as he tries...

  • Planet Explorer Devs Lose Multiplayer Code in Server Crash

    Planet Explorer Devs Lose Multiplayer Code in Server Crash

    Make backups.

    Planet Explorers is an older title from the same development studio that brought us the relaxing and enjoyable My Time at Portia. Planet Explorers came out in late 2016 from Pathea Games. It is an open-world sandbox RPG. It had the usual stuff that players have come to expect from open-world sandbox games. There were survival elements, combat, building, crafting, and the sort. The game's primary focus was a Story Mode that was a-ok for those seeking that sort of a single player experience.

    However, the game also promised multiplayer...

  • Review: The Sinking City (PC)

    Review: The Sinking City (PC)

    That sinking feeling.

    Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

    The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness....

  • Halo: Reach Running on a PC in 4K and 60fps Looks Fantastic

    Halo: Reach Running on a PC in 4K and 60fps Looks Fantastic

    It begins.

    The first wave of invites have gone out to a very small group of individuals selected to test Halo: Reach on the PC. Those who have been selected will have access to a single mission in Halo: Reach from today until July 1.

    When I say that it was a "small group" that was selected, I mean it. As in the vast majority of people who have signed up as a Halo Insider have not been selected. 343 Industries notes that they picked a handful of people that have "varying ranges of hardware and are using the Windows 10 operating...

    F1 2019 Available Now

    Vrooom.

    Codemasters released F1 2019 this week, a whopping two months earlier than previous entries in the franchise would normally be released at. However, that doesn't mean this game was rushed. In fact, Codemasters says that this release has actually had the longest development cycle of any of their F1 games. F1 2019 is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Naturally, this release goes hand in hand with a launch trailer for the game.

    In case you don't know what the F1 games are about, they are all about racing. Specifically, this...

    Shawn Ashmore Gets His Own Man of Medan Developer Diary

    Lay it on me, Iceman.

    A new developer diary is out today for The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan. The game, currently in development from Supermassive Games, the studio behind Until Dawn, includes a big cast of characters, some of which should be familiar faces to a lot of movie fans out there.

    This includes Shawn Ashmore, the actor known for his roles in the X-Men films and Quantum Break, the video game from Remedy. Ashmore's first developer diary is out today for Man of Medan. He takes us behind-the-scenes with a look at the motion-capture...
