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.

For those that don't know,...

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...

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...

  • A Look at the New Mercury Map Coming Thursday to Battlefield V

    A Look at the New Mercury Map Coming Thursday to Battlefield V

    The battle for Crete is about to begin.

    A reveal trailer for the upcoming Mercury map was released a little bit ago today. This map is coming on May 30 for everybody that owns Battlefield V and will cost you nothing. It is, hopefully, the start of some fresh maps for the game which is in desperate need of new content.

    This map will be the start of a few Mediterranean themed maps. This one in particular takes place during the real-life Operation Mercury along the Cretan coast. The next chapter starting in June, Chapter 4, will then add in the...

    Quake II RTX Dated for June 6

    What's old is new again.

    Nvidia just released the "official announce trailer" today for Quake II RTX, or Quake II with real-time ray tracing for those not in the know. There will be a free release to Windows and Linux users on June 6. Please note that this is not the same as the user created mod called "Q2VKPT."

    But what exactly is Quake II RTX? It's the beloved classic FPS, Quake II, with modern, real-time ray tracing technology added to it. This delivers vastly improved lighting and effects work and, in many cases, completely...

    New Death Stranding Info Coming May 29

    Chances are high at it being another super weird trailer.

    Kojima Productions revealed that there will be some new information coming May 29 for Death Stranding. Today's announcement urges you to "create the rope."

    This goes together with other recent teasers put up by Hideo Kojima these past few days. One was made yesterday while another was made just a few hours ago. Both of these can be found below along with the tweet sent out by Kojima Productions.

    I'm assuming we'll get another super bizarre trailer in line with the...

    Sonic Movie Delayed Until Valentine's Day 2020

    Gotta go... take your time and avoid crunch!

    Many fans were wondering just how the Sonic the Hedgehog movie team was going to drastically redesign the blue blur and still get the movie done in time for the planned November 2019 release. It probably would have involved an absolute ton of crunch for the entire animation department.

    Thankfully, the release date of the film has been pushed back.

    Director Jeff Fowler made the announcement earlier today via Twitter. He notes that the new release date is slated for none other than Valentine's...

    Conan Unconquered to Launch Earlier than Expected

    The rare anti-delay announcement.

    It's not often we get to put up a story about how a game is going to launch earlier than expected, but that is precisely what is happening with Conan Unconquered. Funcom and developer Petroglyph announced today that the upcoming strategy title set in the Conan the Barbarian universe will now launch on May 29.

    The previously planned release day was May 30.

    Alright, so it's not a HUGE bump, but it's still something to celebrate if you've been looking forward to this! As a little reminder, Conan Unconquered...

    Final Fantasy XV Surpasses 16 Million Players

    That's a big number.

    Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XIV Online has surpassed the 16 million registered user mark today. While this is a very impressive number, it does not actually say how many of those registered users are active players.

    Final Fantasy XIV has been going on for about six years now. The studio is still actively updating the game and delivering new content on a regular basis. This also includes their upcoming expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, on July 2, 2019.

    Today's impressive number came during...

  • Call of Duty 2019 is Soft Reboot, Called 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'

    Call of Duty 2019 is Soft Reboot, Called 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'

    Déjà vu.

    According to some rumors with a bit of meat to them, we now know a couple of interesting details concerning the 2019 Call of Duty release.

    First off, this year's game is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I'm dead serious. It's going to be a new entry in the Modern Warfare series that originally started with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007. I know the difference between the two titles is literally just a single character, but it is a difference. Amusingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is actually the fourth Modern Warfare title,...

    Valve Kicks Off Spring Cleaning Event

    Play some old games before you buy new ones?

    Given that we already seem to know when the Steam Summer Sale will go live, it just makes sense that you should play and finish some of your back catalog first. That seems to be what Valve was thinking when they kicked off their Spring Cleaning Event today. This event rewards you for playing old games that have been sitting in your library, games you haven't played yet, and even some new, free games they're offering for the duration of this event.

    The following games are freer to play while the event...
