Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

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...

    Satya Nadella Named Newest Microsoft CEO

    Microsoft has named their third permanent CEO today and that person is none other than Satya Nadella. It's alright, I didn't know who this person was before today either.

    Nadella shares his thoughts on the decision with the employees at Microsoft and with the world.

  • CastleMiner Z Hands-on Gameplay Preview - It's Totally Not a Minecraft Clone

    A new game was released on Steam today called CastleMiner Z. I decided to take a look at it, having already resigned myself to the fact that there will be no shortage of games out there or coming out that try to take the Minecraft formula and make it their own.


    Just remember, this isn't Minecraft. In no way is it a poorly done Minecraft clone. No sir....

  • 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
