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.

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.

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...

    Apple TV to Entice Even More Casual Gamers?

    As you may have heard, Apple made an announcement earlier in the month that had more to do with the latest iPhone designs and upgrades. While those changes are indeed coming to their mobile lineup, they're also looking to make a proper entry in the gaming sphere.

    The new Apple TV will be available for a mere $150 (for the 32GB model) and aims to provide users with another gaming option that doesn't come from the Big 3 (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo). While some have been quick to shoot it down before it's even out there-Kotaku.com threw some serious shade-there's...
