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...

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?

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...

    Turbine Abruptly Announces Infinite Crisis is Shutting Down

    Turbine announced, via the Infinite Crisis website, that their superhero themed MOBA will be shutting down on August 14.

    The game has been in beta since 2013 but it never really picked up enough steam or interest to continue the title.
    After much deliberation, we regret to announce the official shutdown of Infinite Crisis. We will end development efforts today and will close the service on August 14, 2015.

    Between now and August 14th, the game will remain available to play completely free.

    GameStop Beats Hot Topic to Purchase ThinkGeek

    GameStop now owns ThinkGeek. GameStop had to outbid Hot Topic in order to buy ThinkGeek. There is nothing in this news that won't make you go "what the f---" at least once.

    The parent company of ThinkGeek, the site that sells oddball "geeky" merchandise, was purchased by the retail "giant" GameStop to the tune of about $140 million. This includes $37 million in cash and "cash equivalents" as of March 31.
    "This acquisition creates value to all stakeholders involved," said CEO Paul Raines. "The addition of Geeknet is an important expansion o

  • Witcher 3 Experience Bug Won't be Patched Until Next Week

    Witcher 3 Experience Bug Won't be Patched Until Next Week

    It seems as though CD Projekt RED kind of screwed up their last update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The latest patch introduced a bug that would prevent XP from being rewarded upon quest completion. The worst part is that the bug seems, at least to most everyone talking about it, to be quite random. People have suggested that you'll be fine if you avoid doing story missions and focus only on sidequests, while others say that isn't true. Simply put, there is no clear cause to this issue and it could happen at any time. So you either play with that knowledge and accept ...
