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,...

    Hitomi Character Trailer for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3

    A new character trailer for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 came out today. This time the focus is on Hitomi. I've also apparently been calling spelling it "Extreme" all this time instead of "Xtreme." Boy, do I ever have egg on my face.

    SteamVR Performance Test is Live

    Valve has just made live their SteamVR Performance Test to assess if your PC is ready for our virtual reality future.

  • The Importance of Audio in Games

    The Importance of Audio in Games

    When people talk about games, one of the first things they'll talk about are the visuals. Let's face it, the game's visuals are the big selling point for a lot of games. Graphics are seen more easily than any other aspect of the game when it comes time to promote a product. You can see the visuals in screenshots, animated gifs, and video that is often accompanied by a single song. The next big thing people notice once they actually have the game is how it plays. Where then does the game audio itself have its time to shine? To put it bluntly: It doesn't. At least fo...

  • HTC Vive Priced at $800, Still a Better Value than Oculus Rift

    HTC Vive Priced at $800, Still a Better Value than Oculus Rift

    Ahead of the official price announcement comes the leak that the virtual reality device, the HTC Vive, will run you $799 (USD) when it's released in early April (2016). That puts the price of the device at a cool $200 more than its nearest competition, the Oculus Rift. And cue the outrage! The difference here is that the SteamVR powered HTC Vive comes with two "Lighthouse" base stations that use lasers to more accurately track movement throughout a room. The bundle also includes two actual motion tracking controllers and two games, ...

  • PSA: Source Engine Security Warning, Loophole Spoofs SteamIDs Grants File Write Permissions on Client Machines

    There is a post on the Steam section of Reddit by a user that claims he discovered a severe security loophole with Source Engine games. Specifically, it's a problem with multiplayer games running on Source, including games like Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Garry's Mod, Dota 2, and more. The user claims that he found a way to not only spoof Steam IDs, but he also found a way that would allow malicious server admins to "(write) files on every client." To put it bluntly if this is true, it could be quite harmful if used by the wrong types...
