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,...

  • Vib Ribbon Coming to North America Tomorrow for Vita and PS3

    Vib Ribbon Coming to North America Tomorrow for Vita and PS3

    Sony realized that teasing Vib Ribbon at E3 would only push fans to want the game on current generation consoles. SCEA's CEO and President, Shawn Layden, has heard the fans and announced that Vib Ribbon will be out tomorrow (October 7) in North America for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3. A PlayStation 4 version will be coming soon.
    It was not my intention to rub salt in the Vib Ribbon wound, but to express my admiration for it as the genre-busting title it is and was. My mistake was that I had assumed that everyone who had been around in the original

  • Parity for Assassin's Creed Unity Confirmed - Runs at 900p/30fps on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

    Ubisoft has revealed that they are going for parity across the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for Assassin's Creed Unity. That means that due to the limitations on one platform, both of them are locked to a 900p resolution and 30 frames per second.

    Senior Producer on the game, Vincent Pontbriand, actually confirmed that the company is going for parity between the platforms for all the wrong reasons.
    "We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff. "Technically we're CPU-bound. The GPUs are really powerful, o

  • Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

    A largely unremarkable open-world title saved by a few unique gameplay mechanics.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is perhaps the most enjoyable open world title I have played in recent memory, but only if you count the game's second half. The problem is that it takes a while to get to the point where it was a blast to play. The first half of the game is largely unremarkable while the second half makes it feel almost like an entirely new experience. This is main due to late game mechanics that fully flesh out the game's unique nemesis system. ...
