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,...

  • New Thief Cinematic Trailer - The Queen of Beggars

    New Thief Cinematic Trailer - The Queen of Beggars

    The second trailer in the "Stories from the City" series for Thief was released today.

    Nobody knows how old the Queen of the Beggars actually is; rumour has it she's as old as The City itself. Some say that although she is blind, she sees through the eyes of rats that riddle the streets. In the second trailer of the Stories from The City series, the wise old crone gives her views on the City as it goes through a time of death and gloom.

    Thief is slated for a February 2014 release on the PC, PS3, PS4, 360, and Xbone....

    Killing Floor: Calamity is a Top Down Title for the Ouya

    Tripwire Interactive released a spin-off title today that is exclusive for the Ouya. Yeah, weird isn't it? The game is a top down action title called Killing Floor: Calamity.


    Tripwire Interactive's VP, Alan Wilson, may have been busy hitting the rum eggnog early when he said the Ouya is "leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed." Huh, alright then.
    "We feel Ouya is leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed today and, as our history suggests

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

    The second season of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead came out on PC yesterday. So, I'm doing a blind play through of it for those who have no intention of playing it for themselves.

    Obviously, if you do intend to play it, go play it first and then come back to watch this to see where our decisions differ! This is part one of a multi-part series for the first episode of the game's second season.

  • DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    It seems as though fans were more than eager to jump all over the early alpha release of the standalone version of DayZ on Steam. The game already picked up $5.1 million in sales in the first 24 hours with 88,000 players joining up in the first 12 hours.


    Those figures equate to over 172,000 copies of the game sold already. Considering that this game is listed as Early Access on Steam and is also very much in alpha status, that is quite the impressive feat.

    (via CEO Maruk Spanel's blog)...

    New Legend of Zelda Game Coming from Tecmo Koei - Hyrule Warriors

    The good news is that a new game is coming in The Legend of Zelda franchise for the Wii U! The odd news is that this new game is coming from Tecmo Koei and looks a lot like a Dynasty Warriors game but with Link.

    The tentative name is Hyrule Warriors and it features Link going around fighting a lot of enemies.


    It almost feels as though Nintendo is just throwing ideas at a wall and seeing what sticks to try saving the poor performing Wii U....
