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,...

  • Below Shifts from Xbox One Exclusive to a PC and Xbox Release

    Below Shifts from Xbox One Exclusive to a PC and Xbox Release

    Below from Capybara Games was slated to be one of Xbox One's major Indie showpieces. That was until very recently when the studio revealed that the game will also be coming to PC through Steam.


    Below is a roguelike (tired of that term yet?) that will find the player making their way through a variety of procedurally generated levels. As with any good roguelike, death is permanent.

    The super stylized title is playable this weekend at PAX East, so be sure to check it out if you're in attendance....

  • Rumor: Steam Controller Available in October or November

    Rumor: Steam Controller Available in October or November

    A source close to PC Gamer has informed them that Valve's Steam Controller will be released in either October or November of 2014. This claim comes from a "trusted hardware source with knowledge of Valve's Steam Machines." Their source continued on to say that the completion of the controller would be the "final piece that would precede the availability of most Steam Machines." That seems to indicate that the Steam Machines themselves would then start to roll out at the end of 2014. Finally, the source also said that they expect "about 500" games to be nativ...

  • Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Gameplay Footage from PAX East

    Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Gameplay Footage from PAX East

    Last night, Roberts Space Industries held a live PAX East 2014 event to show off the upcoming dogfighting module for Star Citizen. Given the super alpha nature of the game, it didn't go quite as expected. There were crashes, both of the ship and of the game itself. However, a compilation of gameplay footage was gathered from the event from the live stream that should give gamers an idea of what the module will be like when it's released soon to backers. It's suggested you skip to around the 3:16 mark in the video to enjoy the footage. Unfortunately, there's not...

    Microsoft Invites You to Dig a Desert Landfill to Find E.T. for the Atari

    There is a long standing rumor, an urban legend if you will, that Atari buried all remaining copies of the atrocious game E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial somewhere in Alamogordo, New Mexico. This was back in 1983.

    Now, Microsoft and Fuel Entertainment are going to the Alamogordo landfill to try to dig up the truth. They want you to help.
    Fuel Entertainment brought the opportunity to Xbox Entertainment Studios, and now, as part of a documentary series (developed by Xbox Entertainment Studios and two-time Academy Award winning producer Simon Chinn

  • Creative Assembly Talks Up PC Advantages for Alien: Isolation

    Creative Assembly Talks Up PC Advantages for Alien: Isolation

    Alien: Isolation is Creative Assembly's upcoming survival horror title that obviously takes place in the Alien universe. In a recent interview with PCGH, the team talked about some of the advantages the PC version will have over the console versions.
    Different platforms afford different advantages. Modern PCs with high-spec graphics cards cannot be beaten for shear raw power. What this translates into are higher resolutions and frame rates, which are always good. Also we can afford to scale assets (geometric, textural, animation, etc.) to take advantage
