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."

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...

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...

    Though the "full" launch of the Elsweyr expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online isn't until June 4, those who pre-ordered the game can play as early as today. Specifically, those that pre-ordered on PC and Mac can play starting today. I believe those playing on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have to keep waiting until June 4.

    This new Elsweyr expansion offers up the sandy desert areas of Elsweyr, home of the Kahjit. It's not all sun and sand though. There are grasslands to explore along with some...

    Bungie Brings Back the Nerf Gun on Fan-Favorite Destiny 2 Weapons

    Old Bungie is back.

    Around the release of the Curse of Osiris update for Destiny 2, Bungie had vowed to take a drastically different approach to how they handle community favored weapons in the game. Old Bungie would have nerfed those weapons into the ground without a second thought.

    But new Bungie? New Bungie said that they wanted to instead buff up other weapons to make them more attractive choices. This was a part of their "Go Fast Update" initiative. Specifically, here is what they said in all capital letters for some weird reason...

  • Rage 2 Updated on Steam to Remove Denuvo DRM

    Rage 2 Updated on Steam to Remove Denuvo DRM

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Bethesda announced that a new update was released today for the Steam version of Rage 2. This update, among other things, removes the always dreaded Denuvo DRM.

    Denuvo was included at the launch of the game on Steam, but was curiously missing from the Bethesda.net Launcher version that came out at the same time. Fans were a bit curious (and upset) over this. The ongoing theory is that Denuvo was utilized on Steam to prevent Rage 2 from getting leaked early from those with access to the review build. Reviews of the...
