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...

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...

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.

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...

  • 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

    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...

  • 30 FPS Lock in The Last of Us Remastered Enables Higher Quality Shadows in Game

    According to Crave Online, if you opt to play with the 30 FPS lock enabled for The Last of Us Remastered, you may be treated to some noticeably higher quality shadows. Unfortunately, while Crave and others with early copies are making this claim, there are no comparison screenshots yet that proves that this is indeed true. If it is, however, players are now left with a choice: Do you play with an unlocked framerate that often sits at 60fps or do you lock it down to an assured 30fps framerate with better looking shadows? Framerate or shadows is what your c...

  • BioWare Teases New Project with Super Ominous Email - Possibly Shadow Realms

    Earlier today, I received an email from BioWare saying "You've Been Chosen." I ignored it for a bit since it was sent at almost 5AM and I continued to happily sleep a bit more. I finally get around to watching the trailer linked within and suddenly I'm hit with crazy, creepy visuals that are advertising something new from BioWare.


    The "Nightmare" trailer above comes with the following lines:
