Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Valve is straight up calling this a "full-length" game that just happens to require a VR device to experience. Pre-orders are available now, months ahead of the game's currently planned release in March 2020. A pre-order discount brings the $59.99 (USD) price down...
 

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."

Today, those who purchased the $130 Founder's Edition of Stadia are probably awaiting its delivery. The physical contents largely consisting of a unique Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Though you had to plunk down $130 for this, there was actually no guarantee that you would get...

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...

    We Happy Few DLC 'We All Fall Down' Releases on November 19

    This will be the game's last piece of DLC.

    Gearbox Publishing and developer Compulsion Games announced the release date for We All Fall Down, the final piece of DLC for We Happy Few. Though the original game came out near the tail end of 2018, Compulsion Games has continued to support the title with a number of content updates and general updates here and there. Perhaps it's time to return to the game to see how it has improved since I reviewed it back in August of 2018.

  • Dragon Ball Super Broly Coming Soon to Dragon Ball FighterZ

    Dragon Ball Super Broly Coming Soon to Dragon Ball FighterZ

    Get ready for more Broly.

    A Dragon Ball Super variant of Broly is coming soon to Dragon Ball FigherZ, the fighting game from Bandai Namco and Arc System Works. A firm release date wasn't given in the press release, nor was it provided in the new trailer (seen below), but I'm guessing he will be added to the roster "soon."

    Broly (DBS) apparently "has some ideas on who is the most powerful and baddest Saiyan of them all" is. He's also "looking forward to bringing the hurt to anyone who challenges his power." Well,...

    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

    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...
