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...

  • David Cage Returns with Detroit: Become Human

    David Cage Returns with Detroit: Become Human

    David Cage took the stage today at Sony's Paris Games Week conference to show off and announce Detroit: Become Human. What type of game are we expecting? Nobody really knows, but it might be a safe assumption to say that it will be more of an interactive movie than anything else.
    Some of you might remember a PS3 tech demo called Kara that we released in 2012. It was about an android who discovered she could feel emotions and appeared to be sentient. Many people were deeply moved by this character and felt empathy for this character who just wanted to live.

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Scales Between 30 and 60 FPS on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

    On the old generation of consoles, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Activision states that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will scale between 30 and 60 frames per second. That is absolutely horrific. Anybody who has experienced it can tell you that jumping between 30 and 60 fps in a competitive shooter is an incredibly unpleasant experience. At the very least, they are saying that the framerate for the Zombies mode will be locked to 30 fps. Just a moment though, because it gets worse. Activision also said that the game will not feature Theater Mode on the old console...
