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,...

  • 343 Delays Content Update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Re-Evaluates Need for Beta Testing

    Due to the still ongoing issues plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 343 Industries has decided to postpone the next content update for the game. This also means that the patch associated with it needs some "additional time and testing" prior to being released.

    This patch is supposed to include fixes for matchmaking search times, match search successes, improve lobby functionality, hit registration, matchmaking ranking, and more. Oddly enough, the studio is also rethinking its plans on the need for a public beta to test patches prior to release. ...

    IGN First has the uh first look at the opening to Bloodborne. The video, embedded below, shows off everything but the character creation at the start of the game. The character creator will have its own reveal later this week.

  • Treyarch Teasing New Zombies Reveal at DICE

    Treyarch Teasing New Zombies Reveal at DICE

    On Wednesday, Treyarch will make some sort of a reveal concerning zombies during their DICE presentation. Treyarch is the studio working on this year's Call of Duty title, so it should probably come as no surprise that there will probably be a zombie game mode included.

    Then again, it is entirely possible that this will be an entirely separate game. Hell, it might even be the entire premise for the next Call of Duty game. Who knows at this point!

    Their Tweet making the announcement included this image. It clearly shows a Perk-a-Cola on...
