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,...

  • Upcoming Ubisoft Games Return to Steam

    Upcoming Ubisoft Games Return to Steam

    After yesterday's mysterious disappearance of new and upcoming Ubisoft games from Steam, they have quietly returned today! That's the good news. The bad news is that some users are reporting seeing a price increase on some of these games compared to what they were prior to yesterday's issue. This is mainly for those in Europe that are seeing an increase of about 10 Euros on these games. I do not know what these games were selling for on Steam in Europe prior to this happening, so I have no basis for comparison, nor do I know if this is 100% true or not. ...

  • Blizzard CEO Condemns the Actions of GamerGate in BlizzCon 2014 Presentation

    Mike Morhaime, the President and CEO of Blizzard, took to the stage to kick off BlizzCon 2014 earlier today. As part of his opening statements, Morhaime condemned the harassment from GamerGate without having to even utter the movement's name once during his remarks.
    "I'd like to take a moment to talk about something serious," Morhaime began. "Over the past couple months, there's been a small group of people who have been doing really awful things. They have been making some people's lives miserable, and they have been tarnishing our reputation as gamers."

    Enjoy the cinematic trailer for Blizzard's team-based FPS that pits superheroes against supervillains, Overwatch.

    In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world.

  • Overwatch Announced by Blizzard, New Competitive FPS

    Overwatch Announced by Blizzard, New Competitive FPS

    Blizzard has just announced a new entry into the competitive FPS field. They're calling it Overwatch and it will be a team focused FPS with an emphasis on capturing control points.

    The hook? It pits superheroes against supervillains. The game has a decidedly Team Fortress 2-esque approach to style and presentation. The characters are also quite varied including a robot that can turn itself into a turret, a gunslinger that can dual-wield weapons, a wall climbing ape, and more. The game is slated to be released in a very generic 2015 window...

    Tony Hawk is Working with Activision on a New Console Game

    Tony Hawk, yes that one, says that he is working with Activision on a new console game that will be out in 2015.

    Is this the rebirth of Tony Hawk Pro Skater for a new generation of consoles? Maybe. Then again it could also just as easily be some stupid as hell sequel for the Tony Hawk: Ride series. Just give me a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Tony Hawk game with controller support, no gimmicky stuff, and a soundtrack that is literally straight out of the 90's and you will have my undivided attention.

    Bungie Exec is the Latest Victim of Swatting

    At 4AM on Thursday, the authorities surrounded the house of an unnamed Bungie executive. The police had been told that the executive "had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage." According to Nathan Elledge, the Sammamish Police Department's chief of police, they were told that the executive wanted $20,000 to release the family that he was apparently holding hostage inside the home. The police rushed to the scene complete with sheriff's office helicopter flying overhead as a SWAT team was put on standby. Th...
