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,...

  • PSA: Play a 48-Hour Trial for Titanfall - Origin Game Time Program Detailed

    EA kicked off their new "Origin Game Time" program today. This program allows players to give a trial run to a game of EA's choosing for a period of 48 hours. The first game offered for this new program? Titanfall.

    From the sounds of it, despite the trial beginning this weekend, the 48-hour time period itself doesn't actually start until you launch the game for the first time. That actually sounds like an incredibly smart idea.

    Capcom Shows Off Uncapped Framerate for Dead Rising 3 PC

    While Capcom is recommending PC gamers play Dead Rising 3 at 30fps, as that is what the game is designed for, they won't stop you from uncapping the framerate if you wish. There's a worry that there will be some weird things happening if you do that. A couple of videos came out today that show what may happen if you uncap the framerate. Spoiler alert: Not much.

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gameplay Demo Tomorrow

    Tomorrow, Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions will make public the gameplay demo they showed off to the press at E3 2014 for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

    The event will be streamed live at 3AM (PT) or 6AM (ET) through the Kojima Station Twitch channel. Given that the live gameplay demonstration will take place in the wee hours of the morning, there is a very small chance I'll be watching it live. Fortunately for you, Konami tells me that they will be "working to get the full video on its social media channels" as soon as they possib...
