Review: Journey for Elysium (PC VR)

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...

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...

  • 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 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 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...
