Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Valve is straight up calling this a "full-length" game that just happens to require a VR device to experience. Pre-orders are available now, months ahead of the game's currently planned release in March 2020. A pre-order discount brings the $59.99 (USD) price down...
 

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...

  • Warhammer: Chaosbane Second Beta Phase Trailer

    Warhammer: Chaosbane Second Beta Phase Trailer


    A trailer is here highlighting the big opening for the second phase of the closed beta for Warhammer: Chaosbane. So I guess this is a double whammy of a news post here. Not only is there a new trailer for this second phase of the beta, but it's also news that the second phase of the beta is now live.

    Neat.

    This beta is still "closed" in the sense that it's only available for those that pre-ordered the game. If you haven't done that, you can still get into the beta by picking up one of the game's three flavors (Standard, Magnus,...

    Shoppe Keep 2 Leaving Early Access this Month


    Excalibur Games announced today that Shoppe Keep 2 will leave Early Access status come April 25. By my non-existent watch that is just one week away from today. When that day comes the game will reach the coveted version 1.0 that many dream of hitting.

    Shoppe Keep 2 places you in the shoes of a town merchant, one that you would typically find in your typical fantasy RPG. You sell armor, food, clothes, magical potions, and the like. You set the prices and ensure you have a good supply. You can customize the layout of your shop and grow it out beyond...
