Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

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.

    Watch the EA E3 2015 Press Conference

    Get ready for EA's E3 2015 press conference. I'm going to guess we'll see new looks at the usual EA Sports offerings (Madden, NHL, PGA Tour, etc.) and probably some Star Wars Battlefront stuff. I'm going to guess we'll see more of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 as well.

    This time, the YouTube stream will be brought to you by GameSpot. Who will be the choice for the next YouTube embed? Who knows! I don't. I really don't know who I'm going to pick for it.
