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,...

    ESA Kicks Off - European Speedrunning Marathon to Benefit Charity

    The European Speedster Assembly (ESA) has officially kicked off. It's a speed running marathon similar to Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) or Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ), but this takes place in Europe. As was the case with the previously mentioned marathons, ESA will also be raising money for Doctors Without Borders, an organization that brings medical supplies and assistance to more than 60 countries. They aim to help people "threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care,...

  • Rust is Still in Development Despite One Guy at Facepunch Working on a Prototype Game

    Gaming communities can be full of idiots. I'm not going to sugar coat that fact. The latest to suffer from such a community is Facepunch Studios. Recently, one of the employees, Adam Woolridge, revealed a prototype game, Riftlight, that he alone is working on. Suddenly, the Rust community loses their collective minds and begin to pick up pitchforks against Facepunch for not delivering a finished product in Rust. They are upset that Rust development is somehow taking a back seat now. They make accusations that Rust is now cancelled because of the reveal ...

  • Digital Foundry Examines The Last of Us Remastered and Framerate

    Digital Foundry Examines The Last of Us Remastered and Framerate

    The latest "Digital Foundry vs." feature takes a hard look at The Last of Us Remastered. One of the big promises for the release is that the game will have an unlocked framerate that will hit the sweet 60fps. Just how often does it hit that magical number, though?
    To answer the question everyone's been asking, frame-rate isn't locked to 60fps, but The Last of Us Remastered does spend the vast majority of its time at the optimal refresh. Problems can kick in during busy combat scenes, and just like the PS3 version, particles and transparent effects in particular

  • New-ish Story Trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord

    New-ish Story Trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord

    I seem to have let this one slip by this weekend. However, at the San Diego Comic-Con a new story trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was shown off by WBIE. You can check out that new trailer below as it takes a look at "The Bright Lord."

    The new trailer reveals many new story details for the game, including the identity of the mysterious Wraith bound to protagonist Talion, as well as his connection to the Rings of Power and the Dark Lord, Sauron. As Talion and the Wraith follow a promising trail, they find a series of ancient artifacts t

  • Another Look at The Crew PC Beta - City Hopping and Missions

    Another Look at The Crew PC Beta - City Hopping and Missions

    In this second part of the "look at" the PC beta for Ubisoft's open world racing game, The Crew, I hop to a few different cities and show you how missions are structured. In addition, I also share just how wonderful the mic quality is thanks to everyone having always open mics! From the looks of it, the closed beta period for The Crew on PC has come to a close. As such, there will be no more preview videos of the game from me. There probably wouldn't be any more videos from me anyway, largely because I just wasn't having much fun with it and was going to st...
