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,...

  • BioWare Releases Anthem 1.0.3 Patch in Rare Saturday Update

    BioWare Releases Anthem 1.0.3 Patch in Rare Saturday Update


    The 1.0.3 patch for Anthem just dropped earlier today for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 players. While it isn't unnecessarily unusual to see another patch released for a game that has had a few issues, it is unusual to see a patch released on a weekend. Yet here we are on a Saturday talking about the latest patch for the game. That's fine, I didn't want a day off either.

    Notable changes in this patch include a huge number of fixes and improvements to the game. These include fixes for crashes, fixes for Titans that spawned too frequently, and more....

    Respawn Bans Over 355K Cheaters from Apex Legends


    Though it's only been out for about a month now, Apex Legends has already amassed over 355,000 bans courtesy of Easy Anti-Cheat. This announcement came from the latest "Respawn Check In" on Reddit.

    The team at Respawn made sure to inform the community about this in addition to some other details about what they're working on. Some of these details include further measures they're taking against cheating, what they're doing about spammers, how they're tackling crashes, and more. Let's start things off by looking at that tasty news about those...

    The Sinking City Delayed Until June


    Though originally slated to be released on March 21, 2019, the upcoming investigative horror title, The Sinking City, has been delayed. The new release date for the title is now June 27, 2019. This delay applies to all platforms, those being the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    We got a nice gameplay video for The Sinking City last week. The video showed off some of the investigation parts of the gameplay. I mean, it makes sense, doesn't it? You are a detective after all. You just happen to be a detective investigating weird things going on that may...

  • Devil May Cry 5 is Out Now

    Devil May Cry 5 is Out Now


    Fans of the franchise are already well aware, but for the rest of us: Devil May Cry 5 is now available globally. This is the latest in the long-running Capcom developed franchise that saw its peak back with 2013's highly rated DmC: Devil May Cry. This was a game that scored better than the previous three releases.

    Actually, according to reviews, the franchise peaked at the very first game, but it's more amusing to say DmC was the best game out of all of them.

    Devil May Cry 5 continues the story of Dante, Nero, and Vergil starting at a...

    Rage 2 Showcases Combo System in New Superhero Trailer


    Rage 2 media has already displayed a long list of ways in which enemies can meet their demise at the hands of you, the player. The latest trailer is no different. In fact, it amps up the murderous mayhem, and the volume, up to around 11. This new trailer shows off some of the violent combos you can carry out against the baddies of the wild-wasteland.

    You will be able to toy with gravity in Rage 2. Use your skills to send foes up into spinning blades or bring them together just to blow them up, or punch them, or set them on fire. I guess Rage 2 really...

  • Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles

    Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


    Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

    The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio....

  • EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019

    EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


    EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

    EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft...

  • Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April

    Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April


    The cardboard industry is about to get another big boom in April. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for the Nintendo Switch this week. It's slated to hit stores on April 12 and includes a basic kit, a big kit, and two optional expansions.

    From the descriptions of the kit, it sounds a lot like Google Cardboard with the added benefit of having various motion controls added in via the Switch Controllers. For kids, it's probably going to be amazing.

    As with the other Labo kits, you will have to build the VR Kit following the provided...

  • Players Discover that Anthem's Most Powerful Weapons are the Ones You Start With


    Today, a little "PSA" went up on the Anthem subreddit that says clearly that the level 1 weapons players start the game with are the most powerful weapons in the game.

    If you think that doesn't make much sense, you would be correct but there are multiple confirmations showing that this is indeed what is going on. Reddit user YeetLordSupreme found that a level 1 common Defender rifle can take down a basic enemy in just four shots. Meanwhile, they found that their level 45 masterwork "Ralner's Blaze" rifle takes six shots to take down the very same enemy.

    This is in spite of the basic weapon showing damage of just 286 per shot compared to the 1184 damage per shot with the level 45 weapon. ...
