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,...

    Five Things Video Games Teach You About Love

    I received this mail today in my work email and thought it was interesting enough to pass along to you guys. The article is by Liel Leibovitz, author of God in the Machine: Video Games as Spiritual Pursuit and it shows off "Five Things Video Games Teach You About Love."

  • Take-Two is Having a Super Great Year as Grand Theft Auto V Surpasses 32.5 Million Units Sold

    The financial report for Take-Two's "Fiscal Third Quarter 2014" was released today. I won't bore you with the finer details. All you need to take away here is that Take-Two pulled in GAAP net revenues of $1.86 billion. That's compared to their previous quarter where they only pulled in $415.8 million.

    So, why such a strong increase across the board? Well, Grand Theft Auto V had a huge hand in that, sure. There were, however, other big players for the company.
    The largest contributors to net revenue in fiscal third quarter 2014 were Grand Theft

  • AMD Releases Catalyst 14.1 Beta Drivers with Mantle Support - Battlefield 4 Framerate Gains Benchmarked

    At long last, those with recent ATI cards can finally experience the framerate benefits that the Mantle API brings to the table. We're talking about some fairly substantial framerate gains in some cases over DirectX 11.

    First off, go pick up the AMD Catalyst 14.1 beta drivers and enable the Mantle API within the Battlefield 4 settings. It's recommended that you do a clean install of these drivers and not simply install over your old drivers. Installing over your old drivers with this release has been known to cause crashes and hangs. While you're down...

  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 Launches on February 4

    The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 Launches on February 4

    Telltale's Twitter account revealed that the Xbox 360 version of the second episode for The Wolf Among Us will be released on February 5. The other versions, excluding iOS, will be released a day earlier on February 4.


    The above trailer does contain some partial nudity. But I'm guessing that since this warning was posted after the video, it's a little too late for this warning. Oh well, it's a digital boob, deal with it....

    Trove - Hands-on Gameplay Video from the Alpha

    I recently got into the Trove alpha from Trion Worlds. It's got a look similar to Minecraft and Cube World but the gameplay is quite different from both.


    The game is in a very, very early alpha stage of development. It has a long way to go as far as development is concerned, but I'll be sure to keep an eye on it and provide updates if possible of any major changes.

    You can sign up at the Trove website for your chance to get into the alpha or future beta....
