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...

    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.

    The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    Docked mode is a bit better at 720p.

    When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition was announced for the Nintendo Switch this week, it was met with a mixture of excitement and apprehension.
