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.

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...

  • Microsoft in Talks with Publishers to Fragment Kinect-less Xbox One Systems with Performance Boost

    Microsoft is allegedly in talks with various publishers about increasing the performance of Xbox One consoles that will not come bundled with a Kinect. Microsoft executive, Yusuf Mehdi, said that the topic was being discussed.
    "We are in discussions with our game publishers about what we might do in this space and we will have more to talk about soon," he said.
    If true, that would give an extra 10% of power to the Xbox One that is typically reserved for the Kinect and various Kinect features. However, in doing this, Microsoft may very well drive a div...

    Watch Dogs to Run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on XB1 Both at 30fps

    Ouch. Ubisoft has officially stated that the console versions of Watch Dogs will not be the graphical powerhouses most fans were wanting. It turns out that the PlayStation 4 version will run at 900p and at 30fps. The Xbox One version will run at 792p, also at 30fps.

    Oddly enough, the Ubisoft blog entry that contains this disappointing news is entitled "What Makes Watch Dogs a True Next-Gen Game".
    The game also looks great on both generations of consoles. On new-gen systems the game will run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One, at 30 frames-per-second
