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,...

  • Correction: The Elder Scrolls Online Will NOT Use One-Time Activation Codes on Consoles

    Yesterday, we reported that the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online would make use of one-time activation keys and would thus eliminate the possibility for trading the game in or renting it. This was based off of a posting on the official forums from a ZeniMax representative.

    Today, Bethesda issued a correction and said what's really going on.
    "The physical console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited does not require a one-time game code," says Alistair Hatch, the Head of European PR at Bethesda. "As with any other boxed

  • Console Version of Elder Scrolls Online to Require Key Redemption - Cannot Be Traded

    An official forum posting by "Gary A." from ZeniMax Online Studios said that those who purchase The Elder Scrolls Online on home consoles will need to redeem a key in order to play the game. Yes, the console version of the game has a key redemption tied to it just like the PC version of the game. And yes, this also means that you cannot trade the game away after that key is redeemed.
    To clarify, you will need a unique game registration code in order to play the game, and used copies will not be eligible to receive a key if the code has already been redeemed.

    Odell Beckham Jr. Is Madden NFL 16 Cover Athlete

    The votes have been tallied and the winner of the Madden NFL 16 cover athlete vote is Odell Beckham Jr. The New York Giants Wide Receiver beat out the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski for the honor.

    Beckham is one of the NFL's most explosive playmakers, highlighting an exceptional rookie season with an electrifying one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys in primetime. In his rookie season, Beckham broke out with over 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns, despite playing in only 12 games. "Odell Beckham Jr. is a true playmaker and a perfect fit for thi

  • Nintendo Schedules E3 Event at the Same Time as Square Enix

    Nintendo Schedules E3 Event at the Same Time as Square Enix

    Last month, Square Enix announced that they would hold their E3 2015 press conference on June 16 at 9AM. That has traditionally been the same time that Nintendo holds their own E3 conferences, at least if recent history is anything to go on. As expected, Nintendo didn't seem to let it bother them too much as they announced today that they would keep with tradition and hold their E3 conference at 9AM on June 16. Of course, Nintendo's event is a bit different as they are again expected to have an online only "Nintendo Direct" style show. I'm going to assume that most e...

    A press event has been going on this week at Konami's LA offices for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. As tends to happen, some bits of information have made their way online from this event despite there being a full embargo until June 9.

    One of those pieces of information are the names of the missions from just the first chapter of the game. I'll toss them in spoiler tags for those who don't want to have anything about this game spoiled for them.

    Assassin's Creed Syndicate Announced by Ubisoft

    A new year means a new Assassin's Creed game. This year it's Assassin's Creed Syndicate and it takes place in London during the Industrial Revolution (1868 to be exact). Let's take a look at that glorious facial hair.

    You play as Jacob Frye on a mission "to fight those who exploit the less privileged in the name of progress." Oh but there's a small twist! You can also play as Jacob's sister, Evie! That's right, there is a second protagonist and they're female. From what I've come to understand, however, is that you will still play most o...
