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,...

  • Gearbox Claims They Spent Millions of Its Own Money to Finish Aliens: Colonial Marines

    Aliens: Colonial Marines is the gift that just keeps on giving. This week, Gearbox's attorneys have filed requests to have the developer removed from four claims in a class-action lawsuit against itself and Sega over "false advertisement" for Colonial Marines. They filed another motion that looks to make the suit lose its status as a class-action lawsuit.

    The original class-action lawsuit against Gearbox and Sega was filed by Roger Damion Perrine and John Locke. They say that both Gearbox and Sega falsely advertised the game by showing demos at...

  • VR Headset Designer True Player Gear Changes Name to vrvana

    VR Headset Designer True Player Gear Changes Name to vrvana

    True Player Gear announced tonight that they have changed the name of their company to vrvana (pronounced "ver-vana") to better reflect what they do as a company.
    "True Player Gear" is long-winded and we've heard pretty much every possible permutation of those words. It also caused some confusion at times: "Wait, you guys aren't making hip hop clothing!?". But most importantly, we felt it did not reflect our long term vision for the company, which is that VR should not be limited to gaming but also be open to simulations, education, medicine, architecture,

    Raids in Destiny Will Not Support Random Player Matchmaking

    If you want to do a raid in the full version of Destiny, you better have five friends ready to go. Bungie said that there will be no matchmaking with random players when it comes to in-game raids.

    Bungie's Luke Smith explains to IGN just how extremely crafted these multi-hour raids are and why matchmaking would not benefit any person.

    Crytek Lays Off Employees from Austin Offices

    Following the sale of Crytek UK and the Homefront IP to Deep Silver, Crytek revealed some major restructuring throughout a few of their other studios. Hardest hit are the remains of Crytek UK and Crytek Austin.

    Crytek UK might not be that doomed as Deep Silver is looking to acquire staff for their new studio, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. The good news here is that most of those that were at Crytek UK are making the move to the Deep Silver studio to continue work on Homefront: The Revolution. The actual number of people making the move has not...

    Sony Doesn't Feel EA Access Provides a "Good Value to the PlayStation Gamer"

    "Why is EA Access only on the Xbox platform," seems to be the question of the week for many gamers. If nothing else, surely it would also be on the PlayStation platform as well, right?

    Unfortunately, Sony feels as though EA's subscription based service doesn't add a "good value" for PlayStation gamers out there. A Sony representative provided the following statement to Game Informer.
    "We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect. PlayStation

  • Deep Silver Buys Homefront IP from Crytek

    Deep Silver Buys Homefront IP from Crytek

    In a move that should help Crytek out financially for the short term, they have sold the Homefront IP to Koch Media, the parent company of Deep Silver. This sale will see Crytek UK turn into Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. It should also hopefully mean that those still left at the former Crytek UK will finally start to get paid again.

    Koch has stated that development on Homefront: The Revolution will continue at Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. Hasit Zala had left Crytek UK a few weeks ago as the former Director of the game, is heading up the new...
