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,...

    Steam Summer Sale 2019 is Now Live

    Wallets be aware.

    If you noticed Steam is loading slowly today, or even not at all, there is a good reason for it. The Steam Summer Sale 2019 kicked off just about an hour ago today. It seems as though this year's official name for the sale is the "Steam Grand Prix Summer Sale" and it runs from now (June 25) through until July 9, 2019.

    During this time, you'll be able to save a lot of money on a lot of games. I'm talking about thousands of games being on sale here. You want Assassin's Creed Odyssey for 50% off? You got it.

  • Judgment is Now Available

    Judgment is Now Available

    Prepare to get judged.

    Sega announced that Judgment is now available for the PlayStation 4 today. Technically, the digital version was released last week, but for those that wanted the physical release, today is your day. Thanks to our Judgment review, at least you know that the wait was worth it, right?

    Shameless self-promotion out of the way, let's talk about the game itself, shall we? Judgment is a game not completely dissimilar to the Yakuza titles. Only this time, you play not as as former member of the Yakuza but as Detective Takayuki Yagami...

  • Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    But will still support Linux.

    Valve is one of the big reasons why gaming on Linux has seen such a massive surge in recent years. One of the biggest pushes came not from specially created Linux builds of games, but from Proton, a fork of Wine that Valve released to allow for games to become playable on Linux that may not have native Linux support. At present, there are over 5,400 games that work through Steam on Linux thanks to Proton.

    Over the years, Valve has recommended that those looking to get into using Linux try out Ubuntu Linux. Last Friday,...

  • E3 2019 in Review

    E3 2019 in Review

    The good, the bad, and the boring.

    As June comes to an end, that typically only means one thing if you're a fan of games or gaming: E3 has once again come and gone. Typically, this is a time to look back on all of the amazing new reveals or take in details on the newest hardware announcements, but E3 2019 felt a bit different.

    What is E3?
    For those who are somehow unaware of what E3 is, it stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo. As you can see each word begins with an "E" and there are three words. Weird how that works out like...

  • Review: Judgment (PS4)

    Review: Judgment (PS4)

    The same, but different.

    Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

    It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgm...
