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...
 

Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

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...

  • 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

    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."

  • 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...
