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,...

  • Merry Christmas from TGN

    Merry Christmas from TGN

    Just a quick note to wish everyone (that celebrates it) a Merry Christmas for 2013! Don't expect there to be much news going on this week. I may not have much planned that would prevent news from going up but I doubt there will be much coming in from publishers and developers for the next week or so, at least until 2014. I might get some content up and I'm thinking about possible game of the year stuff for 2013. I think it will just be some written pieces since the thought of writing a script, recording, getting everything edited, and then finally uploaded for...

  • Rumor: EA May Offer Free Battlefield 4 DLC as Apology for Releasing a Buggy Mess

    As a way of apologizing to the community, EA may offer up some free DLC for Battlefield 4 if current rumors are to be believed. It isn't much to go on, but the rumor suggests that DICE and EA will give out some free DLC to make up for releasing what is arguably the buggiest AAA release of 2013. If it's the China Rising DLC, that would be really stupid considering most everyone already has that anyway. Will it be Second Assault? Maybe, but then those who purchased the Season Pass will be pissed off because they spent $50 (or so) based on the delivery of a set a...

    Let's Play: The Walking Dead Season 2 - Episode 1 Finale

    That's it. That's all she wrote for the first episode for The Walking Dead: Season 2 from Telltale Games. It's a slow news day (as in there really isn't jack squat to post about this week), so you may see even more videos than usual from me this week.

    I hope you enjoyed watching (if you did). As usual, if you plan on playing the game, be sure to play it first and then come back to watch my play through. Feel free to share this and the other videos, and maybe give it a thumbs up on the video.

    Let's Play: The Walking Dead Season 2 - Episode 1 - Part 3

    Here we are at the third part of a four part blind let's play of the first episode of The Walking Dead Season 2 from Telltale Games.

    As you may already know, this is mainly for those who did not have any intention of playing the game. If you do intend to play the game, there are very obviously spoilers contained in this series and you should go play it before you come back to watch the videos.

    If you enjoyed this and the series so far, feel free to share the video and maybe give it a thumbs up.

  • New Dragon Age: Inquisition Screenshots to Celebrate the Completion of the Story

    The crew at BioWare have released some new screenshots of Dragon Age: Inquisition today to mark the special "Holiday Build" of the game. What is a "Holiday Build" you ask? The Holiday Build for this particular game means the game has reached a stage of completion where the main storyline is completely playable from beginning to end. It also means that all of the gameplay systems are working together, voice over recordings are starting for large portions of the game, music is being added, and more. The short of it is that the main story can be completed,...
