Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Valve is straight up calling this a "full-length" game that just happens to require a VR device to experience. Pre-orders are available now, months ahead of the game's currently planned release in March 2020. A pre-order discount brings the $59.99 (USD) price down...

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...

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,...

  • Dark Souls 3 Allegedly Coming Early 2016 Says IGN

    Dark Souls 3 Allegedly Coming Early 2016 Says IGN

    There was a recent rumor started by the folks over at The Know that said Dark Souls 3 was in development. They even included some supposedly leaked images from the game that they somehow obtained (see bottom). Given how their last big rumor was immediately debunked and denied by Microsoft, there was much doubt that this rumor was actually true.

    Today, IGN obtained a separate piece of media for Dark Souls 3 that seems to promote the fact that it will be out in "Early 2016."

    Again, the game hasn't actually been announced yet, but given h...

  • Microsoft Announces 1TB Xbox One and New Controller

    Microsoft Announces 1TB Xbox One and New Controller

    Microsoft came out and officially announced a new 1TB Xbox One console today along with a new Xbox One controller. This news was expected to be revealed at E3 but apparently Microsoft just didn't want to wait. The 1TB model will begin to ship to retail outlets on June 16 in the United states "and select markets later this month." The price will be $399 (USD). In addition to this, the $349 price on the 5009GB models is now standard, which should come as a shock to literally nobody. Now, as for that new Xbox One wireless controller, what new features can you exp...

  • Rumor: Next Destiny DLC The Taken King Dated for September 15 and Priced at $40

    Kotaku has the latest rumor concerning the still unannounced next expansion or DLC for Destiny. We previously saw Red Bull spill the beans on the name of the DLC, The Taken King, but now a source has added in a few additional details. According to the source, the new expansion will be released on September 15, 2015 and will be priced at $40 (USD). Yes, $40. What are you expected to get at that seemingly insane price tag? So far, not much. The rumor says that this expansion will offer up a new subclass for each of the game's three main classes. This wil...

    Apple Announces Metal Development Platform for Mac

    Promising a 40% greater rendering efficiency, Apple today announced their Metal development platform along with Metal for Mac.
    "Metal is a core graphics technology that gives apps near-direct access to the GPU. This means faster and more efficient rendering performance across the system," said Apple.
    Yes, in its simplest form it's a lot like ATI's Mantle technology. In fact, the names are also quite similar to one another. During today's presentation at WWDC, Apple brought up on stage Epic's Billy Bramer, the lead programmer on ...

  • Actual Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Reveal Coming at E3

    Actual Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Reveal Coming at E3

    Today's big Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 reveal wasn't much of a reveal at all. Even as far as teasers go, it was quite lame. All it ended up being as a video saying that you should watch Microsoft's Xbox E3 2015 press conference for the exclusive worldwide reveal. Hopefully it won't be some lame timed exclusive again on the Xbox platform, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one.

    This is literally all that was shown off today.

No idea, but it will be at some point in 2015. There were a couple of screens revealed alongside a bizarre announcement ...

  • NSFW: Uwe Boll Swears off Crowdfunding While Swearing AT His Fans and Hollywood

    Uwe Boll had yet another failed Kickstarter. This latest was to try to get Rampage 3 funded. If you don't know what the Rampage series is, I wouldn't worry too much about it. This marked his third failed crowdfunding campaign in a row. Plus, since he can no longer rely on jumping through dodgy German tax loopholes to get his films funded, it looks like the Postal director is calling it quits.

    He's also calling you a lot of bad names. Behold, Uwe Boll's finest work to date!

    never will do crowdfunding again .... thanks

  • Vice City Imported to Grand Theft Auto V

    Vice City Imported to Grand Theft Auto V

    There is an ongoing project for Grand Theft Auto V that looks to create a bunch of nifty tools and custom content for online communities to use. These tools and assets will eventually lead to custom multiplayer servers with custom game modes and all kinds of custom goodies. That's the super simplified version of what FiveM is all about. From the looks of things, one of those custom projects is importing old GTA worlds into the Grand Theft Auto V engine. I've already seen bits and pieces of the older games working but none seem to be quite as complete as this Vic...
