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,...

  • Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers

    Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


    A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

    Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



    Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the...

    Kitana is the Latest Mortal Kombat 11 Character Reveal


    Another playable character was revealed today for the Mortal Kombat 11 roster. It is Kitana. The headline told you as much. What it didn't tell you is the fact that this reveal came from a new TV spot for the game.

    Actual gameplay for Kitana, and presumably a look at her Fatality, will be shown during the new Kombat Kast livestream this week. ...

    Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


    Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

    H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the...

    Second Truck Driver Dev Update Video Released


    Around these parts, we're always keen to get some insight into game development and I'm sure you are too! That's why the "developer diary" style video was created.

  • European Commission Demands Valve to Stop Geo-blocking Games in EU, Valve Issues Response


    Early this morning, the European Commission (EC) issued an official "statements of objections" today towards Valve, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media, and ZeniMax. The EC claims that all of these companies are involved in anti-trust violations by placing geographic restrictions (geo-blocking/geo-locking) on the games that they sell.

    The EC says that these companies have geo-blocked Steam activation keys for games sold throughout Eastern Europe. Some of these places include Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia,...

    'The Kollector' is the Latest Mortal Kombat 11 Fighter Reveal


    Today, WBIE and NetherRealm released another new gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. Much like their previous releases, this one is indeed for a new character reveal. Today we get a look at an all-new character, The Kollector.

    Check out The Kollector's back story below and his reveal trailer. Yes, there is a glimpse of a Fatality included. Maybe Google won't get mad at me for including this gameplay trailer here. For some reason they didn't much like the last character reveal for Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung. The YouTube embeds on that one had to...
