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...

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...

  • SCE Santa Monica Developer Threatens to Pull Ads and Review Copies Over Poor The Order: 1886 Reviews

    Reviews for The Order: 1886 haven't exactly been the highlight of the week for developers Ready at Dawn and SCE Santa Monica. The game has been panned from quite a few critics which has led to at least one developer at Sony's Santa Monica studio to speak out in anger.


    It really seems to be like his stipulation for obtaining review copies is "give us a good review or else." You cannot force or threaten critics and publications to lie to their audiences. Dean Rymer was obviously providing a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to the reviews and...

    If you want to buy Darkest Dungeon, there are many places to do that including Steam and the Humble store, but through the Windows Store is NOT one of them. According to the developer of the game, someone has put a listing for the game up on the Windows Store and it is a very obvious scam.
    The scammer, Balaji Chowdary, even uploaded an image from the game using a non-activated copy of Windows (see top image)! Some are saying that the $3.99 (USD) price simply provides users with ...

    PSA: Get Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 4 Premium for $27 from GamersGate

    For a limited time, GamersGate (I feel so bad for them) is having a sale on Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 4 Premium. You can get the base game for just $9 (USD) and Premium for just $18 (USD).

    Now, when you go to the store, it will show up as $10 for the game and $20 for Premium. Worry not because all you have to do to get that extra 10% off is put in the coupon code 10AN-SALE-FEB2015 when checking out! So, now would be a good time to pick up one or both.
