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...

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...

  • New Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft Creative Director (Update: Only a 'joke')

    That sure is one way to announce a game, I suppose.

    Update: Ubisoft issued a statement after this apparent earlier "confirmation" by Gerighty.



    Ah, so it was a "joke." Ha...

    ... ha?

    If you still somehow doubt it, Jason Schreier also confirmed that it was just a joke.

    Original: Julian Gerighty is a Creative Director at Ubisoft that has helped to create and bring games like The Division 2 and the Splinter Cell games to the world. He also just, uh, kind of announced that they're...

  • Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Announced for May 15

    Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Announced for May 15

    Get ready for new info on Super Mario Maker 2.

    Nintendo announced that they will hold a new "Direct" stream tomorrow, May 15 at 3PM (PT).

    Given that this is specifically being called a "Super Mario Maker 2 Direct" I would assume this will focus only on Super Mario Maker 2. I may or may not be Nostradamus. Watch it on YouTube or via the embed below. ...

  • World of Warcraft Classic Release Date Set for August 27

    World of Warcraft Classic Release Date Set for August 27

    Time to bust out those rose tinted glasses.

    Blizzard officially announced today that World of Warcraft Classic will be released this year. The re-release of the classic game is based off of the 1.12.0 version of the game that originally came out in late 2006. Though the release of Classic will include some "modern conveniences," it will largely still be the old WoW that you know and remember loving.

    The release date is set for August 27, but some players will get to partake of the old-timey action a bit earlier. Starting the week of...

  • 'Epic Store Exclusive' Show Lineup Announced for June 10

    'Epic Store Exclusive' Show Lineup Announced for June 10

    A Plague Tale: Innocence Launch Trailer

    Aw rats!

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is ready to be released on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Actually, from the looks of it, the game is already out in most regions. I believe it unlocked starting around 6PM (ET), the same time the review embargo lifted for the game. Speaking of which, you should go read our review for A Plague Tale: Innocence.

    As with all game releases, a launch trailer is now available that shows off a bit of what players can expect as they travel with Amicia and Hugo De Rune through war-torn, medieval France. Oh, and...

    Change history all over again.

    The release of Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is rapidly approaching. In fact, we're well under a day away from its May 14th release on the PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Seems like a good time for a launch trailer, yeah?

    Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Incredible from start to finish.

    Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

    There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale,...

  • David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    Accusations include a wet-willy and aggressive shoving.

    One week ago, the dispute between Gearbox's Randy Pitchford and former Gearbox employee David Eddings went public in a hurry. It seemed as though this was largely over a pay dispute between the two parties but, as with most things involving Randy Pitchford, there's a bit more to it than that.

    Eddings has claimed, on more than one occasion now, that Randy Pitchford physically assaulted him. These allegations really came to light a few days ago when Eddings posted the following series of tweets....

  • Two-Day Fortnite Summer Block Party 2019 Event Announced

    Two-Day Fortnite Summer Block Party 2019 Event Announced

    You can meet other Fortnite players. Yay?

    Epic Games announced the Fortnite Summer Block Party today. This two-day event will have Fortnite fans coming together to meet various "celebrities" and to meet up with other Fortnite fans. Is that something Fortnite players want to do? PvP games aren't exactly known for having tight-knit communities.

    But alas, here we are.

    If nothing else, event goers will get to see and maybe even get within 20 feet of people like Ninja, Brendon Urie of Taylor Swift's new ME! video (and Panic!...

    This September, get ready to hunt even more monsters.
