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.

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...

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...

    Ex-Dictator Manuel Noriega is Suing Activision Over Call of Duty

    Manuel Noriega is a former Panamanian dictator and he seems to have a bit of a chip on his shoulder when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise. Namely, he's rather upset over Call of Duty: Black Ops II due to that particular game featuring a mission where the players have to capture him.

    Noriega has filed the lawsuit this Tuesday with the Los Angeles County Superior Court against Activision Blizzard.

    Destiny Beta Code Giveaway from Total Gaming Network - Contest Has Ended

    Apparently, when you get into the Destiny beta, Bungie gives you two spare codes to redeem. Problem is, everyone else I know either already has a code or doesn't have a PS4, so I'm left with these two spare codes just going to waste.

    If you would like one of these two codes, simply leave a reply below as to why you want it. If you do not see your post showing up, don't worry about it as I have to verify before it shows up publicly. Do not double post and do not post more than once in this thread!

    This is going to be a quick giveaway...
