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,...

  • Dead by Daylight Getting F2P Mobile Release

    Dead by Daylight Getting F2P Mobile Release

    Get some scares in on the road.

    A mobile release of the multiplayer title Dead by Daylight is apparently coming soon for iOS and Android. The news was confirmed today by Behaviour. They also note that the game will be free-to-play at release and is built from the ground up "to offer the best user experience and controls on mobile devices."

    If you haven't heard of Dead by Daylight yet, or need a refresher, I got you. Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer game. There are four survivors and one powerful killer. The hunter is...

  • Bungie Details Big Changes Coming to Eververse in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

    Bungie Details Big Changes Coming to Eververse in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

    There are some good changes in store, Guardian.

    When Destiny 2: Shadowkeep launches this Fall, Bungie is going to have made a ton of changes to some core mechanics in their space opera shooter. Among those changes will be a fairly drastic overhaul to Eververse and some of the currencies associated with that in-game store.

    Eververse has been a small point of contention for Destiny fans ever since the first Destiny title. It is an in-game store that sells various items for currency that you can earn by playing the game or for another currency type...

  • Alpha Protocol Pulled from Steam

    Alpha Protocol Pulled from Steam

    It may be a temporary thing.

    The Steam store listing for Alpha Protocol was updated today. Instead of a normal store listing for the game, the page now says that Alpha Protocol has been pulled from sale on Steam at the request of the publisher. The publisher in this case being Sega.

    It's not at all clear what is happening with the game to result in Sega halting sales. Typically when a game that has been released is suddenly pulled, it means one of a few things. Either a remaster or remake of the game is coming soon, there is a licensing issue...

  • DONTNOD's Twin Mirror Delayed Until 2020, Now Also an Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

    Timed exclusives on PC continue to be a fat load of BS.

    Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind games like Vampyr and Life is Strange, announced today that they have signed a partnership with Epic Games for Twin Mirror. You already know what that means. Yes, Twin Mirror is now going to be a one-year exclusive on the Epic Games Store.

    The game was announced back at E3 2018. All that we've really seen about the game came during that show by way of a short teaser trailer and word that it was a new "story-driven adventure" title. We also...

  • Twitch is Suing Users that Posted Porn, Violence, Racism, and More to Artifact Section

    The company says these users harmed their business.

    In March 2019, a bunch of idiots got together and flooded the Artifact section on Twitch with all sorts of random content. This seemed to include everything from multiple hour loops of "Ayaya" to things like showing full copyrighted Hollywood films like Avengers: Endgame, full episodes of various copyrighted television shows like Malcolm in the Middle, a whole lot of uncensored hardcore porn like raw gachi (NSFW if you decide to search for it), to uncensored footage of the Christchurch mosque terror attack, and an assortment of videos full of extreme racism and misogyny.

    In other words, it was a real shitshow. ...

  • EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

    If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

    EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront...

    2064: Read Only Memories Sequel Announced

    A new, mysterious case needs to be cracked.

    MidBoss is the studio responsible for bringing the world a little mystery adventure title called 2064: Read Only Memories. This original title came out back in 2017 and has earned some overall "Strong" review scores from a number of outlets, even sitting at a "very positive" user score after hundreds of Steam reviews.

    The game blended together elements of mystery, crime solving, adventure, and a hefty splash of cyberpunk. This past week, a sequel was announced for 2064. It's called...

  • Two King of Fighters Characters Join Dead or Alive 6 Roster

    Two King of Fighters Characters Join Dead or Alive 6 Roster

    Who might it be?

    The Dead or Alive 6 roster continues to grow months after the game's release. Today, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja revealed that there are at least two additional DLC characters coming very soon to the existing roster. "Very soon" means right now in most cases.

    Some of you out there may already be familiar with them. They are Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond from The King of Fighters. Two characters from a different fighting game? Yup! These two are included as part of the Season Pass 1 for Dead or Alive 6.

    However,...

    Killing Floor 2 Steampunk Themed Summer Event is Live

    Kickin' Brass and taking names.

    Tripwire Interactive just released their latest free content update for Killing Floor 2 today. They're calling it Killing Floor 2: Back & Kickin' Brass and if you were in the room with me, you would have been able to hear my eyes rolling when I first read the name of this update.

    As already mentioned, this free content update has a bit of a steampunk vibe going for it. There are some new things and some old things. There is a free weekend and a sale, at least for the Steam version. It's a little of this and...

    A New ZUSI is Available for Train Sim Enthusiasts

    All aboard for simulated fun.

    Another train simulator has found its way through the world of game development and is now ready to be released to the world. The latest is from Aerosoft and Excalibur Games and it's called ZUSI 3 - Aerosoft Edition. It's said to be "highly realistic" in its simulation of trains. This includes its "accurate simulation of signalling and protection systems."

    Apparently, the ZUSI series is used by railway companies for training new drivers. I don't know much about trains or train companies, but I'm...
