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,...

  • Terror Threats Made Against Anita Sarkeesian as She's Scheduled to Speak at Utah State University

    Heightened security measures were taken by authorities at Utah State University after an anonymous student said that he would take "revenge" against the school if they allow Anita Sarkeesian to speak during a planned Wednesday event. Sarkeesian is the creator of Feminist Frequency and the video series "Tropes vs. Women in Video Games." She has also been the target of a huge hate campaign from GamerGate and other like minded misogynists.

    Word of this threat comes from a report from The Standard Examiner out of Utah. The threat said that it would be...

    The Soundtrack for NBA Live 15 was Revealed Today

    EA Sports revealed the soundtrack for their upcoming basketball game, NBA LIVE 15, and I have no idea who any of these people are.

    The soundtrack was apparently "hand-selected by MICK, one of the world's most-recognized DJs and a true authority on what's new and next on the music scene." I've also never heard of MICK.

    However, if you know any of these artists or would like to learn more about the soundtrack, you can head on over to the NBA LIVE Soundtrack Hub....

  • Alien: Isolation Review

    Alien: Isolation Review

    A competent horror title that over stays its welcome.

    Right from the start with the old "20th Century Fox" opening, Alien: Isolation wants you to understand that is out to recreate the feelings and the horror mindset that the original movies first gave audiences back in the 70's and 80's. It is you, playing as Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda, against the Alien Xenomorph, the environment, and a healthy dose of tension.

    The game takes place just 15 years after the events of the first Alien movie and 42 years before the events in Al...
