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,...

  • First Trailer for Dragon's Dogma Online Revealed

    First Trailer for Dragon's Dogma Online Revealed

    Earlier, we saw the first details for Dragon's Dogma Online. Now, we have our first ever trailer for the game.

    Now, despite all of this good news, it's time to bring the buzz down a few levels. This game is apparently never going to be released in the West. That means that North America will probably never get to play it though I do not believe that has been officially announced just yet. Thus, there may still be some hope. Keep those fingers crossed!...

  • Report: Resident Evil Revelations 2 Will Not Have Online Co-op

    Report: Resident Evil Revelations 2 Will Not Have Online Co-op

    According to Rely on Horror (via 4gamer and Biohazard France), Resident Evil Revelations 2 will not feature online co-op for the game's story component. According to those sources, Revelations 2 will feature local co-op only. If you were planning on playing through the story with a friend online, you had better think again. Single player will also feature a bit of "co-op" in that you will be able to switch between the two characters on the fly. Where does the online component come into play then? Well, it will show in the game's "Raid Mode." There's j...

  • CD Projekt RED Justifies the Need for 16 Hours of Mo-capped Sex Scenes for The Witcher 3

    According to The Guardian, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt includes about 16 hours of mo-capped data for the game's sex scenes. So, why so much? CD Projekt RED explains the need to PC Gamer.
    "We are establishing that your character was intimate with this woman recently in order to plant in your mind, that, at the very least, he must enjoy her company," Senior Game Designer Damien Monhier said. "Through sex we have shown that this is a person who Geralt would be compelled to chase after if she went missing."
    Monhier noted that sex is the fastest way to esta...

    Sony Removing YouTube and Maps Apps from the Vita

    Late last night, Sony revealed that the Maps application, the YouTube application, and some features of the near application will be removed from the PlayStation Vita.

    The links take you to PlayStation support pages for Maps and for YouTube that explain the closures in slightly more detail. The YouTube app will no longer be supported after April 20. After January 28, the app will no longer be available for download. The thought is that nobody wants to actually update the YouTube app to the latest API version. Maps and some features of...

    Valve Dishes Out Bans for CS:GO Match Fixing and Betting

    About a week ago, word broke about a number of professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players and teams being involved in match rigging at CEVO Professional Season 5. Well, despite their cries of being "innocent," Valve's own investigation said otherwise.

    Yesterday, Valve announced that a number of players involved in the match fixing will no longer be permitted to participate in any Valve sponsored events in the future.
    We can confirm, by investigating the historical activity of relevant accounts, that a substantial number of high valued

    The 6.1 update for World of Warcraft (currently up on the public test realm) will introduce the ability to take selfies. Specifically, it adds in the "S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera" to the game, which ... takes selfies. MMO Zone, a German site, shows off some of the new features of the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera, which includes seeing the character stretch out their arm to hold the "camera" and even applying various filters to the scene. The camera is a reward for a new "Field Photography" mission in the game. The actual camera usage starts around the 55 second mark. ...
