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,...

    Destiny Beta Slated to Begin in July

    You can check out the full presentation for yourself right here. Most of it focuses on financials and probably won't be of much interest to you anyway....

  • Valve Offering Refunds on Earth: Year 2066

    Valve Offering Refunds on Earth: Year 2066

    Earth: Year 2066 was not a good game. Sure, it was still an Early Access release but it was disturbingly bad even for that stage of release. It didn't help that the developer constantly deleted threads and posts from the Steam Community section for the game.

    Chris, an employee at Valve, stepped in today to announce that they are issuing refunds to those who purchased the game and have pulled the game from Early Access.
    On Steam, developers make their own decisions about promotion, features, pricing and publication. However, Steam does require honesty

  • Harmonix Launches Kickstarter for PlayStation Exclusive Amplitude

    Harmonix Launches Kickstarter for PlayStation Exclusive Amplitude

    Clocking in at a mere 18 days and a goal of $775,000, Harmonix has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Amplitude. Unlike most other successful Kickstarter campaigns, this is a Kickstarter only for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. The original was published by Sony, so it probably stands to reason that they own the IP, hence why it's limited to just those two platforms. In the first few hours, the Kickstarter has already raised more than $107,000 towards their goal. It is a bit odd that Harmonix went to Kickstarter for this, especially after a num...
