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,...

  • DICE Buffs Shotguns in March 5 Update for Battlefield 5

    DICE Buffs Shotguns in March 5 Update for Battlefield 5


    DICE has already provided the patch notes for the Battlefield V update that is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, March 5. This is "Update #4" for Battlefield V Tides of War Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes. Yeah, their naming conventions on these updates are a bit annoying, I agree.

    Of the changes included in this update, we're going to see an overall buff to the shotguns in the game. DICE somehow came to the conclusion that they were now weaker than SMGs? I, uh, hm... well, that's one way to look at it. You can either read the changes via...

  • Sony Reportedly Offering Full Refunds on Anthem for Some PlayStation 4 Users

    Sony Reportedly Offering Full Refunds on Anthem for Some PlayStation 4 Users


    Despite Sony having one of the most strict refund policies around, it seems as though they are making some exceptions for Anthem on the PlayStation 4. Crashes and bugs aren't really all that uncommon for games these days. However, Anthem seems to be taking things a step further by completely turning off the PlayStation 4 in some instances.

    This Reddit thread made just a few hours ago is just one of many reports of this particular issue happening to someone. A couple of users replied that they managed to do the unthinkable and received a full refund...

  • Chris Avellone Wraps Up Work on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order; Teases Another Project


    Earlier today, game designer and noted writer Chris Avellone revealed that he recently finished working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

    If you recall from yesterday's news, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the latest Star Wars title that EA is getting ready to publish. Unlike other Star Wars titles released in the past couple of years, this one isn't being developed by DICE but is instead being developed by Respawn Entertainment.

    For those who are wondering why this is exciting news, you need only look at Avellone's previous work to understand....

  • New Video for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Features Lord Drakkon

    New Video for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Features Lord Drakkon


    A new trailer for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid came out today. In it, we get a better look at the Lord Drakkon character that is included in this fighting game.

    I haven't seen Power Rangers in like two decades, so I don't know if this Lord Drakkon character is in the series already or if they're new for this game. A brief Google search says that Lord Drakkon is an evil version of Tommy, the White Ranger. He appeared first in the Power Rangers comics back in 2016. So, there you have it. ...

  • Fortnite Season 8 Promotes Piracy

    Fortnite Season 8 Promotes Piracy


    The eighth season of content for Fortnite went live earlier today. Get your sails ready, your peg leg waxed up, and your hook sharpened because Fortnite Season 8 is all about the pirates life for me.

    But wait, there's more! Who is a pirate's greatest nemesis? If you answered scurvy, you'd be wrong! It's ninjas! Unlike some ninjas, these probably don't have blue hair. I guess Epic is trying to pull back in that Sea of Thieves crowd on Twitch? There's also some stuff about a giant volcano, a freed Prisoner, treasure, cannons, and Volcanic Vents that...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Rated in Europe

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Rated in Europe


    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was apparently just been given a rating by the Pan European Game Information board (PEGI). This specific rating is for the PlayStation 4. And yes, that is the actual title that is given.

    So far, nothing about this has been announced by Activision yet. Hell, nothing about this year's Call of Duty release has been revealed at all yet.

    I just can't help but feel incredibly indifferent about this if the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer isn't included alongside the campaign. Or if they do what...

    Seek Victory in Left Alive's Latest Video


    Game director Toshifumi Nabeshima provides fans some details about the skills and tactics that need to be used to ensure victory on the battlefield. The video offers up yet another glimpse of the "survival action shooter" gameplay found in Left Alive.

    We previously saw a decent amount of gameplay only last week, so be sure to check that out as well after you finish today's video. Or rather, should I say today's videos? Yes, there is another video for you to check out today. In addition to the commentary video from the director, a developer diary with Nabeshima, character designer Yoji Shinkawa, and mech designer Takayuki Yanase was also released today. ...
