Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

For Google, today is a bit of a mixed bag. The good news for them is that they just soft launched their first dedicated gaming platform, Stadia. The bad news is that it's reportedly a "monumental flop."

Today, those who purchased the $130 Founder's Edition of Stadia are probably awaiting its delivery. The physical contents largely consisting of a unique Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Though you had to plunk down $130 for this, there was actually no guarantee that you would get...

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...

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.

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...

    The fans begged for it and Hideo Kojima and his team at Konami are delivering on the request to show visual differences between the various versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This includes a comparison of the current gen systems with the last gen systems.

    It also includes a chart showing the resolution and framerate differences between every version of the game. Let's just get it out of the way right now and show the comparison chart between each version.

  • Target Offering Free $50 Gift Cards with Xbox One Purchase

    Target Offering Free $50 Gift Cards with Xbox One Purchase

    If you head to your local Target retailer, you may be able to snag an Xbox One with a free $50 Target gift card. This offer may be available across all stores, but you may want to check your local retailer just to be sure. Some speculate that this is an indication that a price reduction is coming soon for the Xbox One. Others feel that this is merely Target trying to move some units. A similar situation happened with the Wii U last year, with a general price reduction following suit after retailers offered limited sale prices on the console. This offer runs f...

    Kickstarter Hacked - Some User Information Stolen

    Kickstarter, the go-to site for crowd-funding a variety of projects, has been hacked. The notice comes from the Kickstarter site and makes it clear that no credit card data was accessed.

It's strongly suggested that you change your password at the Kick...

    Bored? Join Up with Over 24,000 Others on Twitch to Play Pokemon

    Let's face it, the Twitch chat is known for being horrible. Yet, someone had the great idea to use that horribleness as inputs for a bot to play Pokemon live to the people that are trying to control the game.

    The idea is simple. You watch the stream (also embedded below) at the TwitchPlaysPokemon Twitch channel. You join the chat. You say a command like "up" or "down" and the bot takes each of those commands and actually inputs them into the game. Right now, there are over 24,000 people watching and participating in this. Yes, it's just as much of ...
