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...

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...

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...

  • Pirated Copies of The Sims 4 Turns the Game into Minecraft

    Pirated Copies of The Sims 4 Turns the Game into Minecraft

    If you pirate The Sims 4, get ready to have your entire game look like a blocky mess.


    According to Playerattack, if you pirate the latest entry in the Sims franchise, the entire game area becomes pixelated. It essentially takes the pixel blur that the game applies to your Sims when they use the bathroom or take a shower and applies it to the entire viewing area. In fact, what this does is it starts off uncensored until your Sim uses the bathroom. That pixelated view then expands until it covers the entire screen. Even better are the peo...

    Sony Files Vib-Ribbon Trademark in Europe

    Hold onto your butts, Sony just filed a trademark for Vib-Ribbon in Europe. Sadly, the trademark filing doesn't include any additional information, so nobody is really sure why Sony filed for this trademark. It's entirely possible it's just part of some general record upkeep at Sony. Then again, there has been a big push to see the return of Vib-Ribbon ever since Sony teased the hell out of it at E3. We'll just have to wait and see if Sony actually has plans for this fan favorite title or if this is still more just teasing from them. For those that don'...
