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,...

    A First Look at the Live-Action Digital Series Halo: Nightfall

    Earlier today at the San Diego Comic-Con, 343 Industries and Microsoft showed off some of the first ever looks at Ridley Scott's upcoming live-action digital series, Halo: Nightfall. Nightfall takes place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians. It centers around "legendary manhunter" Jameson Locke and his team "as they are caught in a horrific terrorist attack while investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra."
    Led by Locke, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) agents are forced to coordinate with a Sedran commander

    Halo: Nightfall's Agent Locke is Playable in Halo 5: Guardians

    Agent Locke, one of the starts in Ridley Scott's Halo: Nightfall live-action series, will be a playable character in Halo 5: Guardians. This was revealed earlier today by 343 Industries during the San Diego Comic-Con.

    Nightfall serves as the origin story for Agent Locke. The story is set on one of the broken pieces of Halo from the first game and it tells the story of how he grew up into a Spartan. 343 describes his story as a "superhero origin story." The story of Nightfall is far more tied into Guardians than Forward Unto Dawn was with Halo...

  • Final Stand DLC Delayed for Battlefield 4

    Final Stand DLC Delayed for Battlefield 4

    EA announced that the final DLC release for Battlefield 4, Final Stand, has been delayed. The DLC will now be released during EA's third fiscal quarter, which places the release between October and December of this year. The news comes from EA's Q1 2015 earnings call.

    Many speculate that the delay is being made in order to fill the gaping void left from the delay of Battlefield Hardline to 2015. Hopefully that isn't the real reason for the delay but so far no actual reason has been given for the delay, only speculation. Final Stand was origina...
