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,...

    Massive Doesn't Want to "Do a Battlefield 4" with The Division

    Responding to criticisms about the ambitious 2014 release window for The Division, developer Massive said that it felt like they were "punched in the face" when Ubisoft announced that extremely early date.
    Finally our source tells us of how annoyed people at the studio were at Ubisoft without consulting with Massive when they revealed a 2014 street date at last year's E3. "It felt like being punched in the face to be perfectly honest. At the end of the day we don't want to do a Battlefield 4 and release an unfinished game. There's too much potential i

    Rare is "Evaluating What They Want to do Next"

    Rare, the development studio owned by Microsoft is currently "evaluating what they want to do next," according to Phil Spencer. Now that Kinect is no longer going to be bundled with the Xbox One, it seems as though the future is wide open for the once prominent developer.
    "[Rare has] just come off the successful launch of Kinect Sports Rivals," said Spencer. "I think I've heard a few times from people asking about Rare - they're in the process of evaluating what they want to do next, and we're working closely with them to see what their new project will

    Despite this delay, Ubisoft still plans on showing off the game at E3 next month. This delay follows a rumor from earlier this year saying that the game was unlikely to see the light of day in 2014....

    Double Legendary Drop Chance in Honor of Diablo 3's Second Birthday

  • Respawn Working on Fix for Smart Pistol Framerate Exploit

    Respawn Working on Fix for Smart Pistol Framerate Exploit

    In the latest patch for Titanfall today, a new feature was introduced that allows you to adjust your framerate up to 120fps if your monitor can support it. The problem is, it seems as though the lock on time for things like the Smart Pistol are inexplicably tied to framerate as the following video clearly illustrates.


    In short, the higher your framerate is set, the faster you will fully lock on to an enemy.

    Fortunately, a Tweet from Respawn says that they are aware of the issue and are working on a fix for it. Until then,...

  • Dota 2 The International 4 Compendium Surpasses $5 Million Prize Pool

    Dota 2 The International 4 Compendium Surpasses $5 Million Prize Pool

    The Compendium for The International 4 Dota 2 tournament has been on sale for under a week. In that time, it has managed to increase the prize pool from the $1.6 million it started at (courtesy of Valve) up to a staggering $5 million prize pool. It has already surpassed $13.6 million in total sales. The remaining money that isn't going to the prize pool? It goes straight to Valve. They have made over $10 million from selling a $10 virtual item in under a week. The most insane part about all of this? The International is still over two months away. ...
