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,...

    Unreal Engine 4 is Now Free for Everyone

    You get an engine, and you get an engine, and you get an engine! Everyone is getting a game engine! Specifically, Unreal Engine 4 is now free. There is no longer a subscription fee associated with using the engine. However, Epic still stipulates that they are given a 5% royalty on any game shipped that uses UE4 after the first $3,000 of gross revenues. This means that the source code is free, the multi-platform tools are free, and every future upgrade to the engine is free. Last year alone saw at least 7 major updates and 12 minor updates made to the engine. ...

    World of Warcraft Soon to Allow Players to Buy Game Time with In-Game Gold

    Taking a page from Eve Online and WildStar, Blizzard will soon allow players to buy more game time by spending in-game gold. Players will be able to purchase a "WoW Token" through the in-game shop using real world money. They can either use it to add 30 days of game time to their account or sell it on the game's Auction House at the "current market price."

    That quoted price is guaranteed no matter how volatile the market is. Also, once purchased from the Auction House, that Token is then soulbound to your character and cannot be re-traded to game the...

  • In the World of Gaming, Leonard Nimoy was More than Just the Civilization IV Narrator

    By now, most of you have probably already saw that actor Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83. We all knew him as Spock from Star Trek or from his dozens of other roles he has assumed for the past roughly seven decades. However, many of us probably also knew him as the narrator for Civilization IV.

    His familiar voice would read a line or two any time a new technology was discovered. Even after countless hours with the game, hearing those words of wisdom read was always comforting and always signified progress was being made. What you m...
