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...
 

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.

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 'Ghost Recon' Related Announcement Teased for May 9

    New 'Ghost Recon' Related Announcement Teased for May 9

    A new Ghost Recon related announcement has been teased for May 9.

    If you haven't been keeping up with all things Ghost Recon related, you may have missed an ARG type site that was teased recently. A link to Skelltechnology.com suggests that a reveal is coming May 9 at 11:30AM (PT) for something.

    But what? What could it ever be for? Well, Skell Technology is a company referenced in both Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six. It's very much pointing towards a Tom Clancy reveal. But that still probably leaves the door open for, say, a new Splinter Cell announcement,...

    Beware the Monsters that Lurk in A Plague Tale: Innocence

    Another new trailer is out today for A Plague Tale: Innocence showing that sometimes man is the real monster.


    This particular trailer focuses on the "Monsters" that you will encounter as you play through the rat filled streets. Amicia and Hugo will encounter enemies everywhere, from "stately homes" to "lordly cathedrals" and then down to cellars and basements with the dregs of society.

    The pair will be hunted by the English army, local brigands, and The Inquisition and their master, Vitalis. "All pursue...

    Review: Close to the Sun (PC)

    Come out to the Helios, we'll get together, have a few laughs…


    Close to the Sun is the latest offering in the genre mashup that blends horror with a story driven narrative experience. It is developed by Storm in a Teacup and published by Wired Productions. This particular review focuses on the PC version of the game, but will be coming later this year to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It should be noted that the PC release looks to be an Epic Games Store exclusive. I maybe wouldn't hold my breath on seeing it appear on other PC storefronts, at least...

  • This is Why Claptrap has a New Voice Actor in Borderlands 3

    This is Why Claptrap has a New Voice Actor in Borderlands 3

    David Eddings says Gearbox just didn't want to pay him.

    If you've seen any promotional material for Borderlands 3 in the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed that Claptrap sounds quite a bit different from what you're used to. This is because David Eddings, the voice behind the robot in all of the previous games has been replaced by Jim Foronda.

    The reason? Money. Specifically, the claim from Eddings that Gearbox didn't want to pay Eddings for his work in Borderlands 3.

    Yesterday on Twitter, a fan asked Eddings if he was still...

    Sonic Movie Director Says They'll Make Sonic Look Less Weird


    Jeff Fowler, the director on the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie says that they have heard the fan feedback.

    Yesterday, the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released and uh, Sonic looked odd, to put it nicely. For God's sake, he had human teeth! Why?!

    Naturally, the reaction online to Sonic's design ranged everywhere from laughter, to horror, to anger, to some suggestions on how to make him look better, and to an absolutely crapload of amazing meme images. Oh those glorious meme images. Also, I have no idea where the...

    World War Z to Receive Post-Launch Content as Game Sales Surpass 1 Million


    World War Z is the latest, and some may say greatest, co-op shooter that places you and three of your friends against massive hordes of the living dead.

    World War Z has also apparently sold quite well, having sold over 1 million units in its first week of being on sale on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store (yep, it's an affiliate link). As such, you may expect that the game will be receiving some fresh content in the months ahead and you'd be correct.

    New content is in the works and the first drop arrives this...
