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...

  • Razer to Pay the Unpaid Developers From Ouya's Free the Games Marketing Program

    Ouya has a program called "Free the Games" that essentially allowed Ouya to give out some games for free to Ouya consumers with the promise that Ouya themselves would pay the developers later on. Problem was, Ouya went the way of the Dodo. Prior to that happening, Ouya crafted a new agreement that essentially said they had no responsibility to pay anything owed to the developers of those games should Ouya go bankrupt. Well, Ouya went bankrupt and thus left roughly $620,000 unpaid towards developers. The developers are, understandably, upset. Along comes Razer...

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    When Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out, it was largely praised with the exception of the boss fights. No matter how you played the game, the boss fights were nothing more than actual fights with little to no means of utilizing stealth or any of your non-lethal abilities. That was somewhat fixed in the GOTY edition but it wasn't as good as it could have been.

    Now, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks like it will allow you to tackle bosses to suit your play style. The latest issue of OXM has a nice bit of information from Gameplay Director Patrick...

    China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    At long last, China is lifting its ban on making and selling video game consoles within its borders. This will now allow companies like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft to sell their consoles to retailers who can then sell the systems to end consumers, something that they haven't been able to do since 2000 when these restrictions first went into place.
