Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

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...

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.

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...

  • Better in VR: New Just Cause 3 Panoramic Trailer Offers 360 Degrees of Insanity

    A new trailer for Just Cause 3 was released a short time ago today, but this isn't any old, normal trailer here. Oh no, it's a 360-degree panoramic trailer that is best experienced by using something like a smartphone. Bonus points if you watch this using a VR headset like Google Cardboard or Gear VR. Sure, you can drag the view a round with your mouse but where's the fun in that?
    The video begins with Rico wing-walking on a plane and taking out the massive vertigo-inducing base named Vigilator Nord before wingsuiting to the giant naval base of Porto Le

    Harmonix Admits to Amazon Reviews of Rock Band 4

    Yesterday, the Internet discovered that various Harmonix employees were leaving reviews for Rock Band 4 over on Amazon. That is a rather big "no-no" when it comes to ethical practices from businesses.

    Today, Harmonix admitted that yes, they have indeed been reviewing their own product. Statements have been made both by the company, Harmonix, and by one of the reviewers in question, Matthew Nordhaus.
    "Harmonix has clarified its internal policy about posting reviews of our own products on retail sites, and we've asked that existing reviews be

  • PlayStation Store Now Includes Wishlists

    PlayStation Store Now Includes Wishlists

    The PlayStation Store, at least the web browser version of it, now allows you to make wishlists. You can quickly add a game or other media piece to your wishlist by clicking on a heart icon next to the price listing. It is then added to your wishlist that only you and your friends, or you alone, can see.


    Could this be a step on the road to gifting through the PlayStation Store? It seems entirely plausible, especially how the privacy settings are defaulted to allowing your friends to view your wishlist items....

  • Harmonix Employees Might be Leaving 5-Star Amazon Reviews for Rock Band 4

    Harmonix Employees Might be Leaving 5-Star Amazon Reviews for Rock Band 4

    Allegedly, some Harmonix employees are leaving 5-star reviews on Amazon for Rock Band 4. Reddit, as they tend to be, were on the case.
    Harmonix employees seem to have taken to Amazon to post their own favorable reviews of the game. At first I thought it was a rogue employee or two but then I dug around for about a half hour and found 7 of them and so it appears to be more of an initiative. I'm sure there's more than that.


    Some of the names in the reviews do match the names of employees that are at Harmonix. These names include...
