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,...

  • Total Gaming Network's Biggest Disappointments of 2013

    Total Gaming Network's Biggest Disappointments of 2013

    Here we are again, the end of another year. The end of another 365 days of game releases. We just had the added benefit this year of also enjoying the launch of a new generation of game consoles. Games announced for 2014 and beyond are already looking and sounding amazing and there is no shortage of both AAA and Indie titles to enjoy right now! When you think about it, we haven't seen a massive launch of a new generation of consoles since 2005 and 2006. 2013 was, to put it mildly, a great year for gaming. Sure, ignore all of the bad things and... No. Wait. Hold ...

  • Is The Elder Scrolls Online the Next Star Wars: The Old Republic?

    Is The Elder Scrolls Online the Next Star Wars: The Old Republic?

    Reliable industry sources have revealed that the internal cost of development for The Elder Scrolls Online has already surpassed $200 million. The last MMO to hit such lofty costs was Star Wars: The Old Republic, which reportedly cost EA from $200 million (as a low estimate) to upwards of $500 million to develop.

    We all remember how well that went for that title, don't we?

    That particular tweet has been removed, though we are unsure as to why. This is merely speculation at this point, and the facts may be that the budget is a lot le...

  • Classic Fallout Games Removed from GOG Following Interplay License Expiration

    More sad news to ring in the new year as it was revealed earlier that the old Fallout titles have been removed from sites like GOG. The reason once again is due to Interplay no longer owning the rights to the franchise once the year came to an end. All rights now belong to Bethesda, which has so far not come to any sort of agreement with GOG for distribution rights.
    Today, we bid farewell to the legendary post-apocalyptic 2D classics. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we needed to pull the three classic Fallout games, that isFallout, Fallout 2,

  • Deadpool Pulled from Steam, Xbox Live Marketplace, and PlayStation Network Following License Expiration

    It looks as though the Deadpool game may be harder to come by as of just a few hours ago tonight. It appears as though Activision's license for the franchise expired and has now been removed from all digital retailers across all platforms. A similar fate befell the 007 franchise at the end of 2012 when Activision lost the publishing rights to that franchise. If you failed to pick up Deadpool during any of the holiday sales, you can still pick it up at places like Amazon. However, it may be safe to assume that once that stock sells out, it will no longer b...

    Initial comments from the studio says that nearly everything in the offices has been lost....
