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. 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...

  • Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    But will still support Linux.

    Valve is one of the big reasons why gaming on Linux has seen such a massive surge in recent years. One of the biggest pushes came not from specially created Linux builds of games, but from Proton, a fork of Wine that Valve released to allow for games to become playable on Linux that may not have native Linux support. At present, there are over 5,400 games that work through Steam on Linux thanks to Proton.

    Over the years, Valve has recommended that those looking to get into using Linux try out Ubuntu Linux. Last Friday,...

  • E3 2019 in Review

    E3 2019 in Review

    The good, the bad, and the boring.

    As June comes to an end, that typically only means one thing if you're a fan of games or gaming: E3 has once again come and gone. Typically, this is a time to look back on all of the amazing new reveals or take in details on the newest hardware announcements, but E3 2019 felt a bit different.

    What is E3?
    For those who are somehow unaware of what E3 is, it stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo. As you can see each word begins with an "E" and there are three words. Weird how that works out like...

  • Review: Judgment (PS4)

    Review: Judgment (PS4)

    The same, but different.

    Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

    It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgm...

    This game is bananas.

    Devolver Digital and developer DeadToast Entertainment are proud to announce that their over the top, martial arts filled, skateboarding, talking banana, action game called My Friend Pedro is now available. The game that blends all of those elements together with a healthy dose of shooting, platforming, and sick slow-mo moves is out now for the PC and the Nintendo Switch.
