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...
 

Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

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...
 

Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

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...

  • 'The Kollector' is the Latest Mortal Kombat 11 Fighter Reveal

    'The Kollector' is the Latest Mortal Kombat 11 Fighter Reveal


    Today, WBIE and NetherRealm released another new gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. Much like their previous releases, this one is indeed for a new character reveal. Today we get a look at an all-new character, The Kollector.

    Check out The Kollector's back story below and his reveal trailer. Yes, there is a glimpse of a Fatality included. Maybe Google won't get mad at me for including this gameplay trailer here. For some reason they didn't much like the last character reveal for Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung. The YouTube embeds on that one had to...

  • First of Three New Videos Released for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

    First of Three New Videos Released for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey


    Panache Digital Games and Private Division have released the first video in a new three-video series for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. We actually briefly talked about this game back when it was revealed to have a 2019 release date, which has some more general information about the game itself. As before, the game is looking to arrive this year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The short of it is that the game tasks you with trying to survive, thus ensuring the future of your species through evolution and good decision making. It is an open-world survival game at heart, but instead of just your own survival at stake, it's the fate of all humanity. Hey, no pressure or anything, right? ...

  • QC Games and Breach Shutting Down Just Three Months After Release

    QC Games and Breach Shutting Down Just Three Months After Release


    QC Games, the development studio that released Breach just this past January into Steam Early Access, is now shutting down. The announcement came earlier today via a developer update on the Breach website.

    Breach was a 4v1 action-RPG. Players could make and customize their own characters with a variety of customizable abilities. These characters would face off against a "Veil Demon" that was either controlled by the AI or by other players. The game was going to transition to being free-to-play once it left Early Access, but it looks like...

  • Borderlands 3 Dated for September 13, 2019 - Confirmed Six Month Exclusive to Epic Games Store


    Borderlands 3 will officially be released on September 13, 2019 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store for PC. In case you missed the obvious "hints" dropped earlier this week, or were in denial as I repeatedly saw from people on other sites, the PC release is indeed a six month timed exclusive on the Epic Game Store before it will hit other PC storefronts like Steam.

    However, the point of this isn't to talk about how completely bullshit exclusives are, especially when it comes to the PC market, but we are instead here to...

    Valve just rolled out a fresh update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive this evening that makes some adjustments to three maps. These maps are none other than Vertigo, Nuke, and Abbey. The biggest changes tonight hit Vertigo and Abbey, with Nuke receiving only little bitty fix.

    As always, the update will be automatically applied via Steam....

  • Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch

    Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch


    For the longest time, if you wanted a refund from Sony for a purchase made through the PlayStation Store, you were either completely out of luck or were maybe given a one time exception. There were a few other times where Sony cracked open that refund door another inch, such as when games were severely broken to the point of crashing systems, but these were made once in a blue moon. Even then it wasn't a guarantee that you would be issued a refund if you requested one.

    Yesterday, Sony pushed out a slightly less draconian refund policy for purchases...
