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. 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...

  • Looking Ahead: 2016's Most Anticipated Video Games

    Looking Ahead: 2016's Most Anticipated Video Games

    2015 is dead and over with. Hell, we're already a month deep into 2016 at this point. Even still, we have about 11 months of game releases to look forward to. What better time than right now to put up a quick entry about what games I'm looking forward to in 2016? These all aren't games that I'm like dying to play. These are a mix of games that I'm super excited to play and also some that I'm merely interested in seeing how they turn out for one reason or another. Just for the hell of it, I'll even include the games that came out in January since I'm so terr...

    Lost Journey Out on iOS Courtesy of Asia

    Asia makes some pretty good products. One of them is Lost Journey, a new iOS game from SoulGame, which is a game development studio based in Asia. See how I went full circle there? Lost Journey has already won some awards and received some award nominations which include 2014's "First Prize of Microsoft Imagine Cup" and a nomination for "Best China IndiePlay game" in 2015.

    It's out now on iOS here in the States, so you should probably go check it out. It's only $0.99 (USD) from the Apple App Store. It looks like a fun puzzle/platform game with a unique twist...

  • "Haunted" and "House" Focus of Trademark Legal Battle Between Atari and Hazy Dreams of Infinity

    Could we maybe go like one damn week in 2016 without having to waste time on these idiotic trademark legal battles? This time it's Atari and Hazy Dreams of Infinity who are about to go toe to toe at an upcoming United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) hearing (February 26). All of it will be over the words "Haunted" and "House."

    Atari apparently holds a trademark for those words due to some old Haunted House games, the first of which seems to have come out in the early 80s. It was later revamped in 2010, with a new installment coming in...

  • New Invention Elite Skill Added to RuneScape

    New Invention Elite Skill Added to RuneScape

    Jagex Games Studio added the new "Invention" skill today in RuneScape. It is apparently the game's "first Elite Skill." Sounds fancy!
    Invention allows high-level players to augment and customize existing weapons and armor with a wide selection of perks. This new skill tier differs from those long established in RuneScape, as Invention is not immediately unlocked for players. Instead, this skill must be earned by reaching level 80 in other skills, namely Smithing, Crafting and Divination. The introduction of Invention makes it possible for players to
