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...

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...

  • Concerns Grow as Players Find Easy Cheat Method in The Division Beta

    Concerns Grow as Players Find Easy Cheat Method in The Division Beta

    The Division beta is currently ongoing and already players have found a severe flaw in the game's design. Apparently, all character stats are stored client side on the PC version of the game. This includes but is not limited to: player health, currency amount, player level, character speed, magazine/clip size, ammo capacity, medkit count, grenade count, and more. This essentially means that anybody playing the beta can, in theory, make themselves invincible killing machines that can run around faster than the Flash. The initial reports seem to have come from a...

  • Ubisoft Opposes EA Over the Use of the Word "Ghost"

    Ubisoft Opposes EA Over the Use of the Word "Ghost"

    Oh man, this is really stupid. It's not quite "Fine Bros. trademark the word 'react'" levels of stupid, but it's damn close. Ubisoft's legal team has filed an opposition to trademark registration against EA over the use of the word "Ghost."

    See, Ubisoft makes those Ghost Recon games. EA has a game development studio that they called Ghost. Ghost made the last couple Need for Speed (Need for Speed Rivals (2013), Need for Speed (2015)) games. Ubisoft is worried that people are going to confuse the two totally separate uses of the word, Ghost, and that...

    The Witness is Being Heavily Pirated Claims Creator

    Jonathan Blow made some comments on Twitter (via GI.biz) earlier that finds the Indie developer questioning his future in the industry. The culprit is once again the industry boogeyman, piracy.
    It seems The Witness is the #1 game on a certain popular torrent site. Unfortunately this will not help us afford to make another game!

    I'm glad that a lot more people will be experiencing the game! But I also want to be able to make another comparable game next! Just sayin'.
    Blow also mentioned how he doesn't really like to use DRM, but he is c...
