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...
 

Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

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...

    Resident Evil HD Remake Coming to PC and all Current-gen Platforms

    In early 2015, Capcom will bring the classic Resident Evil remake to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Commonly called REmake, the game will include vastly improved visuals when compared to the original release of Resident Evil on the PlayStation. The game even includes improvements when compared to the GameCube REmake. It now includes better textures, 1080p support on the PS4 and XB1, 5.1 surround sound support, and even the option to play at the classic 4:3 ratio or in the new 16:9 aspect ratio. The REmake also includes support for...

    Spiral Game Studios "Thrilled" to Shut Down

    Well this is an odd one. Spiral Game Studios, the studio behind the lackluster Orion: Prelude and Orion: Dino Horde is now "thrilled" to shut down.
    I am thrilled to announce the end of Spiral Game Studios. All content, IP, research and technology is being absorbed into the newly formed TREK Industries courtesy of the TREK Play label.

    The announcement concludes simply with a link to Trek Industries. Trek Industries is a newly formed studio that is now absorbing all of the assets from Spiral Game Studios. This is presumably just a simple...

  • Nintendo to Offer Retailer Specific DLC with Hyrule Warriors - First Time Ever for the Company

    For the first time ever in the history of Nintendo (as far as I can recall, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong), the company is going to offer retailer specific content for Hyrule Warriors. The reveal came near the tail end of tonight's live stream for the game. Nintendo revealed that retailers will have different pieces of extra content to offer. Granted, while this extra content is nothing more than special pre-order costume packs, it is still notable as it shows that Nintendo is jumping on board the same unfortunate trends that other companies b...

  • Rumor: GameStop Simplifying Trade-in Process but is it Better?

    Rumor: GameStop Simplifying Trade-in Process but is it Better?

    In some supposedly leaked documents from GameStop that were obtained by Kotaku, the retail chain may soon overhaul their trade-in system, perhaps for the better in some instances.

    According to the rumor, August 18 will mark the start of a more simplified trade-in program at GameStop. This system seems to streamline a lot of the payment options and removes a lot of the bonus options that used to exist. Take the following chart as an example of what this new plan will do.

    Sure, you get more for in-store credit than if you got cash back b...

  • Cosmo Offers In-Depth Commentary on his World Record Run in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    Famous speedrunner Cosmo recently broke the world record for shortest time to beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The run was completed in 18 minutes and 10 seconds. This run is the culmination of years of work and research from the speed running community, countless hours of practice, and a touch of good luck thrown in for good measure. He says that this is "the greatest speedrun (he's) ever done."

    The video below offers up his in-depth commentary on the entire run and what went into achieving this incredibly low time.

    Madden NFL 15 Figures Coming to a Happy Meal Near You

    McDonald's revealed their upcoming Happy Meal toys today and it's a bit of an odd one. The kids meals will begin to include football figures based off of the Madden NFL 15 license.


    They appear to be fairly generic football figures with team logos on their chests.

    White Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Bundle Rumored

    Microsoft is readying another bundle for this Holiday season. It is confirmed that the bundle will include a copy of Sunset Overdrive with an Xbox One. What makes this interesting, however, is the rumor that the Xbox One might be white in color. It will presumably look similar to the special Microsoft only white Xbox One consoles that Microsoft gave out to employees at launch.


    Microsoft has not yet announced the specifics of the Xbox One Sunset Overdrive bundle yet. Also keep in mind that there is an upcoming Madden NFL 15 bundle shipping...

    State of Decay Developers Announce Moonrise, a Mobile RPG

    Undead Labs, the studio behind State of Decay has just revealed Moonrise, an upcoming free-to-play mobile RPG. From the sounds of it, Moonrise sounds a bit like a fun version of Pokemon.
    Throughout history, the enigmatic event known as the Moonrise has periodically caused widespread fear and destruction. As its corrupting shadow spread across the land, peaceful creatures known as Solari were transformed into savage Lunari, attacking towns and cities for months until the effect faded. In recent times, Moonrises have been rare, sometimes separated by centuries,
