Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

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.

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...

    Rumor: Battlefield 5 Retail Listing Suggests WWI Setting

    A retail listing for Battlefield 5 popped up at a Swiss online retailer, World of Games. The description for the game mentions an October 26 release date and a description that points to the game being a "multiplayer tactical shooter in WWI."

    Capcom just revealed that Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6 are coming out on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

    These trademarks are for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. In fact, they both are accompanied by a logo. You can still see both entries at the OAMI website.

    These entries seem to have been first reported by NerdLeaks.
