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,...

  • Judge Rules in EA's Favor Over Battlefield 4 Class Action Lawsuit

    Judge Rules in EA's Favor Over Battlefield 4 Class Action Lawsuit

    A class action lawsuit brought against EA over "false and misleading statements" concerning the marketing for Battlefield 4 has run into a wall today. The judge in the case, Judge Susan Illston, ruled that many of the statements made were not actually fraudulent but were rather just "puffery" and vague.
    As the Courthouse News reported, however, Judge Susan Illston ruled that at least some of those statements were nothing more than "corporate confidence," and while it may have been misplaced, it does not constitute the foundation for a lawsuit. "[CFO B

  • New Achievements Point Towards a Re-release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    New Achievements Point Towards a Re-release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    It seems as though new achievements and possibly trophies have been listed for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Keeping in mind that San Andreas was released for the original Xbox and PlayStation 2, prior to Achievements even being a thing, it's rather surprising to see that these exist. The achievement list includes 33 achievements that total 1,000 Gamerscore. This seems to strongly point towards a re-release of the game for newer consoles. The question is, which consoles? Xbox One and PlayStation 4 or Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3? Maybe all four of them? W...
