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. 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.

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...

    Titanfall 2 Developer Confirms Single-Player Campaign and TV Series

    A writer on the Titanfall 2 development team confirmed to Forbes that the game will include a single-player campaign and a tie-in TV series. The writer, Jesse Stern, has credits that include Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

    It's also important to note that Titanfall 2 will not be exclusive to the Xbox platform. While there is still no confirmation that it's also coming to the PlayStation 4, it could almost be safely assumed that's what is being hinted at.

    H1Z1 Getting Split Into Two Games, Arrives on Consoles this Summer
