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."

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.

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...

    Volition just got done showing off their unreleased PSP game, Saints Row: Undercover, via their Twitch channel. It's unfinished, broken, and was left in an early state of development that most end consumers cannot even comprehend.

    This lost gaming relic was certainly cool enough to see but how would you like to play it for yourself? Well, you can. Volition and Unseen64 have teamed up to release the Saints Row: Undercover PSP prototype ISO for free. You can find...

    2K and WWE to Make Sweet Music Together for Many More Years

    Today, 2K and WWE announced an extension to their contract that will see 2K developing WWE titles until at least uh... huh. Well, it seems as though this press release doesn't actually say how long the contract has been extended for outside of it being a "multi-year extension." I'm going to guess it's around three years.
