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.

With the release of Journey...

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

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...

    Watch Dogs Delayed on Wii U

    Ubisoft revealed today that Watch Dogs will be delayed on the Wii U and the Wii U only. During an earnings call, Ubisoft said that all platforms, except for the Wii U will be released in Spring. The Wii U version will come "at a later date." This comes after various rumors that the Wii U version of the game was outright cancelled. It also comes just a few weeks after a "glitch" in GameStop's pre-order page removed the Wii U version of the game entirely. That is quite the blow to Wii U owners hopeful for this game. Just keep the hope alive that Ubisoft doe...
