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,...

  • Forza 6: Apex Coming to PC this Spring

    Forza 6: Apex Coming to PC this Spring

    Microsoft announced today that Forza 6: Apex will be coming to the Windows 10 Store this Spring. In addition to that news, they also revealed that the Porsche expansion is out now on the Xbox One. So, what can you expect from the PC release? Well, it will again be locked to the Windows 10 Store and locked to DirectX 12. If at least one of those rubs you the wrong way, you may as well stop reading. However, you will miss out on the fact that Apex will be free in order to serve as an extended demo of what's to come for Forza on the PC platform. ...

  • No Man's Sky Listing Shows $60 Price and Pre-Order Date of March 3

    No Man's Sky Listing Shows $60 Price and Pre-Order Date of March 3

    Sony seems to have mistakenly put up a listing for No Man's Sky today on their weekly PlayStation Store update blog. The listing is currently removed for No Man's Sky but it should be noted that it was given a price tag of $60 (USD) and wording that almost made it sound like it would be out this Thursday (March 3). However, it more than likely meant that pre-orders for No Man's Sky would begin on March 3, not that it would actually be out on March 3. The listing was removed to avoid any possible confusion. Then again, it could have also been removed to adjust the price, ...

  • HTC Vive Sold 15,000 Units Within First 10 Minutes

    HTC Vive Sold 15,000 Units Within First 10 Minutes

    HTC reported that they sold 15,000 HTC Vive headsets in the first ten minutes of being on sale. These are $800 a piece, more if you live in places that aren't the United States. That means that in just ten minutes, they sold at least $12 million worth of product.

    Ten minutes. $12 million. This news was first revealed by Shen Ye, one of the employees working at HTC on VR. How does this compare to the Oculus Rift? It's not possible to say just yet. Oculus went on sale a few weeks back with pre-orders starting to go out in March. That March relea...

    EA and Ubisoft Settle Dispute Over the Word "Ghost"

    Remember when a really stupid thing happened in the gaming industry? That's too vague. Remember when that stupid thing was EA and Ubisoft were on the verge of hot legal action over the use of the word "Ghost?" Guess what? The dispute has been resolved!

    EA has pulled one of their trademark filings for "Ghost." EA still has Ghost Games, developer of recent Need for Speed games and Ubisoft still has Ghost Recon. Everyone is happy. Details on the resolution are unknown but an EA rep said that "we now have an agreement with Ubisoft to carry on with our...
