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...

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...

Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. 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...

    Happy 10th Anniversary Battlefield 2!

    Battlefield 2, the game that not only played an important role in the lives of many of us but also was highly responsible for the soul and essence of the multiplayer shooters that we get today. It was undoubtedly an example of a game that we unfortunately don't get nowadays, a game full of innovation, of new ideas and concepts and with no fear to execute them. It was also thanks to this success that the Battlefield series managed to grow exponentially to what it is today. For the time it achieved a great many technical feats, including having great graphics, physics, de...

  • Batman: Arkham Knight 60FPS Workaround for PC Users

    Batman: Arkham Knight 60FPS Workaround for PC Users

    Batman: Arkham Knight came out tonight on all platforms. Unfortunately for those PC owners out there, the gameplay is capped at 30fps. Why? Not really sure. They have an in-game benchmark that most certainly goes above 30 but the game itself runs at 30 max.

    That is unless you make this simple INI tweak!
    • With the game not running, go to your installation folder for Arkham Knight. It will be something like: \steamapps\common\Batman Arkham Knight
    • From there, navigate to the BmGame folder, then Config, then open up BMSystemSettings

  • Bungie Does a Poor Job Defending the Price for The Taken King and Rebuying Content

    When pressed by Eurogamer to explain how they can justify selling The Taken King expansion for $40 while omitting content that players could only get if they re-purchased the entire game again, Bungie's Luke Wilson gave the PR equivalent of "because fuck you, give me money."
    Eurogamer: So it may seem like a small thing but you're adding exclusive content to the game - three new dance emotes - that players can't get unless they rebuy the main game and the two existing DLCs. Is that right?

    Luke Smith:
    "There is no way right now for you to get

    1TB PlayStation 4 Ultimate Player Edition Starts to Arrive in July

    Sony also announced today that they will be rolling out a 1TB "Ultimate Player Edition" PlayStation 4. The higher capacity system will launch in select Europe and PAL territories starting on July 15.

    When will other regions see the new 1TB model? No idea. How much will it be? Nobody seems to know just yet. Will this use the updated hardware for the PS4 CUH-1200 model? No.

    That means if you have the 500GB model but want more storage, you may as well just upgrade the capacity yourself and not spend the money to buy a completely...

  • Watch 13 Minutes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Co-Op Gameplay on the PS4

    Watch 13 Minutes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Co-Op Gameplay on the PS4

    Sony and Activision just released a new 13 minute long gameplay video for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. This new footage shows off the game's co-op campaign for the upcoming release of the annual FPS.

    The video notes that not all features shown will be available on all platforms. What I assume this means is that the old generation of consoles (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) will not feature four player co-op. I think those platforms may be limited to just two player co-op. This is merely my assumption.
