Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

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...

    Ubisoft Teases a New Assassin's Creed Game

    It's about that time again, the time where Ubisoft starts to tease the next entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise. A few teasers have been released already.

    The first teaser shows some cross hands, one of which has a hidden blade while the other has a cane and brass knuckles. Also, there seems to be a lot of rain.

  • CD Projekt RED Blacklists GMG from Receiving Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Keys

    CD Projekt RED Blacklists GMG from Receiving Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Keys

    Here's the setup for this news story:
    A few days ago, Green Man Gaming started to advertise a new promotion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The deal was 35% off of a Witcher 3 pre-order and made it the cheapest (AFAIK) deal in town for the upcoming CD Projekt RED title.

    The problem here is that GMG was never actually given any keys for the Witcher 3, at least not from CD Projekt RED. So either GMG was selling a product they didn't have yet in hopes of striking a deal with CD Projekt RED or they were pre-emptively selling keys that came from...

  • World of Warcraft Struggles to Maintain Subscribers

    World of Warcraft Struggles to Maintain Subscribers

    How's that for a clickbait headline? The official numbers for World of Warcraft just came out today from Blizzard's Q1 2015 earnings call. In reality, the subscriber based MMO is down roughly 2.9 million subscribers from Q4 2014.

    However, that still keeps the game at over 7.1 million subscribers. MMO-Champion has a nice graph of the subscriber history for WoW.

    Blizzard is still doing a-ok from WoW as far as revenues are concerned. This is due largely to increased fees in select regions and other "value added services" (micro-transactions) that are pr...

    Prison of Elders Information Revealed for Destiny: House of Wolves Expansion

    Earlier today, Bungie blew the lid off of the Prison of Elders game type coming in the House of Wolves expansion for Destiny. To put it simply, Bungie is adding in a game type that looks quite a bit like the multiplayer mode from Mass Effect 3, which isn't a bad thing at all.



    If you missed the earlier live stream on Twitch, you can watch the VOD right now. If you don't want to sit through two hours that may be annoying to your senses, you can instead watch this 13 minute long overview video from Datto.
