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,...

    Nintendo Hosting Digital E3 Events in Lieu of Live Conference

    Last year, Nintendo opted not to hold a typical E3 press conference. It was a drastic change of pace for the company but it seemed to work out. This year, Nintendo is again going to skip the live conference and opt instead for another digital event.

  • How is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Released on the Xbox One?

    How is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Released on the Xbox One?

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was slated to be released today. This isn't the weird part. The weird part is that a few weeks ago, this game was "delayed indefinitely" on the Xbox One and all advertising for this game on that platform was halted. That was only for the Xbox One version. The game is also available on the Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U, PC, and 3DS.

    Hell, even the game's website doesn't even have the Xbox One listed!

    Nobody from either Activision nor Microsoft spoke up about this indefinite delay. No reasons were ever given and n...

  • Choose Your Own Adventure in Latest Wolfenstein: The New Order Gameplay Video

    A new gameplay video for Wolfenstein: The New Order was released today. The latest footage from the game shows "some of the paths that B.J. can choose in his mission to bring down General Deathshead and the Nazi forces."

    A lot of what is seen in the new trailer focuses on some of the early game choices, so while it may contain some spoilers, it shouldn't be anything too major. However, I know that if I didn't say this, some people might get upset that they were spoiled without warning.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is slated for ...

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha Mod Released

    The Lost Alpha mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was just released through ModDB. This is the first release of the mod that aims to bring the world a version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. that is as close to the original visions of the game.

    That is to say, they hope that this mod is more akin to what GSC Game World showed around 2002. Since then, the game was pushed back multiple times and changed drastically from what was initially shown. This mod, which began development back in the Summer of 2008, looks to bring it all back to the start.

    New Video and Release Date Revealed for Divinity: Original Sin

    The above trailer for Divinity: Original Sin shows off a bit of a "before and after" look at how the game has changed and evolved since its Kickstarter campaign roughly one year ago.

    The official release date for the game is set for June 20, 2014. However, those already playing on Steam Early Access can expect some new improvements and additions to the game as early as today.
    - Complete overhaul of loot generation matrix. Expect much cooler treasure. - Added 135 music tracks, including some all-time favourites from previous Divinity games

    Actual Destiny Gameplay Footage

    Bungie has finally shown off some gameplay footage for Destiny. They're calling this trailer "Destiny Strike Gameplay: The Devils' Lair." With a title like that I can only assume it shows off everyone getting along with angels and dancing.

    They promise that a playable demo for the game will be available at E3 2014....
