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,...

  • Stephen Colbert to Tackle GamerGate Tonight

    Stephen Colbert to Tackle GamerGate Tonight

    On tonight's episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert is setting his sights on GamerGate.


    This was first teased by a Twitter post from Anita Sarkeesian in which she posted a picture of her sitting behind the desk of the Colbert Report.

    Supporters of GamerGate have somehow already fooled themselves into thinking this is a good thing, that Anita is only there because she's a "professional victim." They are also apparently under the belief that just because they haven't been able to answer factual responses to anything...

  • YouTube Finally Delivering on 60fps Promise

    YouTube Finally Delivering on 60fps Promise

    It appears as though YouTube is finally starting to deliver on the promise it made back in June that will allow video creators the ability to upload and play videos at 60 frames per second. Some new videos uploaded today now play back at a wonderful 60fps, a huge step up to the 29.97fps playback for every single other video. There are a couple of catches, however. First, you need to use Chrome. This is presumably because of Chrome's much better support for HTML5 video playback. Secondly, you need to watch the videos at resolutions at, or higher, than 720p. ...

  • GameStop to be Closed on Thanksgiving

    GameStop to be Closed on Thanksgiving

    I'm not really sure if this is news. Is this news? I don't even know anymore since I can't even remember the last time I set foot inside a GameStop. However, it seems as though it's worth at least mentioning that all 6,600 GameStop stores will be closed on Thanksgiving. They're doing this out of "respect of (their) store associates."

    Items, tricks, treats, achievements, probably hats, and more will be yours if you participate in the sixth annual Scream Fortress event for Team Fortress 2! The event kicks off today and will run through November 12.

    Even better is the fact that they also released a new comic, Blood Money, to tease and entice you.

    Scream Fortress 2014 will include the return of magic spells, lakes of urine-scented water (huh?), at least six new achievements, and bumper cars. Yes, bumper cars.

    This will presumably kick off a bit l...

  • The Evil Within Review

    The Evil Within Review

    The mediocrity within.
    Over the course of the lengthy, ill-paced campaign, one thing really stuck out for The Evil Within. It's not really a horror game. Yes, there are areas where you are often subjected to intense imagery and situations but they are more shocking than anything else. To put it simply, the game is more like the Saw film franchise than what we have come to expect from a good survival horror game. You may think to yourself that perhaps this will be a killer action title then since the horror part is a bit of a letdown. I have some b...
