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'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.

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.

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...

  • No Physical Release of Heavy Rain PS4 in North America

    No Physical Release of Heavy Rain PS4 in North America

    This is a bit of an odd on. When it comes to game releases, we almost always see North America getting a physical release when one is offered by a publisher. That trend seems to be bucked with the upcoming release of the Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls Collection.

    Quantic Dream posted their regional launch schedule on Facebook today. On it is no indication of a release in North America.

    You can still acquire both digitally. Heavy Rain for the PlayStation 4 is due out on March 1 in North America....

    Let me open with some quick reviews for a couple of games I played this past week: Firewatch and American Truck Simulator. Firewatch is one of those games that ...

  • The Future of Mobile Gaming

    The Future of Mobile Gaming

    It is not anything new, but the surge in mobile and casual gaming is only going to keep going strong in 2016. These past few years have seen an incredible surge in the popularity of mobile gaming. As of April 2015, 35% of all gamers said they play mobile games. It should only stand to reason to say that number will only increase as time goes on and more and more people pick up phones that are capable of playing games that are visually on par with the consoles they grew up with. We already have a number of titles that have made the transition from mobile to console...

  • Only One: The Game - Kanye West is Supposedly Making a Game with Paul McCartney

    Kanye West is making a game that will have music by Paul McCartney. It's called Only One: The Game and features Donda West (Kanye's late mom) riding Pegasus to the heavens.

    The above trailer seems to be the only footage online for this game right now. I apologize for how bad the quality and the annoying outro. Your guess is as good as mine right now about just what in the world is going on.
