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,...

  • Microsoft Again Secures Timed Exclusives on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC

    It's a tale as old as time. Activision likes money. Microsoft has money. Microsoft gives Activision money for an exclusive period of DLC for a new Call of Duty game and the owners of other platforms get pissed off. Ahh, such a sweet story.

    It's indeed what happened again today with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Once again, Microsoft has secured the rights to get the DLC first on Xbox platforms.
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games (co-developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3), harnesses the first three-year,

  • Rumor: Project Beast is an Upcoming PS4 Exclusive by From Software

    Rumor: Project Beast is an Upcoming PS4 Exclusive by From Software

    Apparently, the latest hot rumor creating some buzz out there is that there are a handful of leaked shots taken from a trailer for a new game coming from From Software. The working title for the game is called Project Beast and a lot of what is shown in these images may remind you of a certain game franchise, also from From Software. Actually, it should remind you of two franchises from the studio, Dark Souls and Demon's Souls.

    Someone who claims to have actually seen the footage mentioned a few things from what was shown. ...

  • Rumor: Nintendo to Reveal New Hardware at E3 2014

    Rumor: Nintendo to Reveal New Hardware at E3 2014

    There have now been multiple sites reporting on the same rumor, so here goes nothing. Allegedly, Nintendo is going to show off some "new hardware" at E3 2014 (that's this year).

    Now, this could literally mean anything from a new console, to a new gimmicky device (looking at you Vitality Sensor), to a new handheld, to a new update to an existing piece of hardware (XS3DSXL), to a new controller, to anything in between.

    This originally started when IGN kind of hinted that Nintendo might reveal some new hardware at E3. The problem is,...

  • Turtle Rock Fires Community Manager Josh Olin After Calling Donald Sterling "A Victim"

    Josh Olin, or as you may otherwise know him, JD_2020, was fired from Turtle Rock Studios today after remarks made on Twitter. Olin voiced his opinion on Twitter in which he said Donald Sterling was a victim.

    Now, Donald Sterling was the racist owner of the LA Clippers, an NBA team. For more on that, just go to Wikipedia since we're not here to talk sports. Late on Wednesday, Olin shared his thoughts on the punishments announced for Sterling, which coincidentally includes a ban from all things related to the NBA.

  • Wolfenstein: The New Order "Requires" an i7 CPU and 50GB of Hard Drive Space

    Wolfenstein: The New Order "Requires" an i7 CPU and 50GB of Hard Drive Space

    Earlier today, Bethesda released the "PC system requirements" for Wolfenstein: The New Order. Their labeling conventions are a bit askew, however, as while it does say "PC system requirements," these specs are more akin to the recommended specs.
    The system requirements are based on the game being a next-gen experience running at 60fps. These are the system requirements to deliver the PC game as it was intended to be experienced.
