Google Stadia is Out Today and Reportedly a 'Monumental Flop'

It's time for "good news, bad news."

For Google, today is a bit of a mixed bag. The good news for them is that they just soft launched their first dedicated gaming platform, Stadia. The bad news is that it's reportedly a "monumental flop."

Today, those who purchased the $130 Founder's Edition of Stadia are probably awaiting its delivery. The physical contents largely consisting of a unique Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra. Though you had to plunk down $130 for this, there was actually no guarantee that you would get...

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

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

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.

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...

  • Xbox One Also Sells One Million Units in 24 Hours

    Xbox One Also Sells One Million Units in 24 Hours

    Microsoft is calling it "the biggest launch in Xbox history." Just as the PlayStation 4 did, the Xbox One has also sold one million units in a 24-hour period.

    Microsoft claims that so far 3.6 million miles have been driven in Forza 5 and over 60 million zombies have been killed in Dead Rising 3. The key difference to note here is that the Xbox One launched in 13 countries yesterday in order to reach one million units sold. The PlayStation 4 was launched in only North America (United States and Canada) so far. It's also interesting to note that the PS...

    PlayStation 4 and Vita Ultimate Edition Bundle Coming this December

    It looks like an "Ultimate Edition" bundle that includes the PlayStation 4 and the PS Vita may be coming this December. David Scammell, Editor at VideoGamer.com snapped this photo of an upcoming ad that features the bundle deal.


    The catch here is that the bundle deal may only be for European markets. Yeah, bummer. So far, Sony has not yet announced or confirmed anything yet for any region, so keep those fingers crossed that this makes its way to other regions....

  • Microsoft Has No Clear Solution for Xbox One Disc Drive Issue

    Microsoft Has No Clear Solution for Xbox One Disc Drive Issue

    The PlayStation 4 had its fair share of hardware issues (perhaps largely attributed to disgruntled Foxxcon employees) and now so does the Xbox One. The Xbox One seems to suffer mainly from a disc drive failure and unfortunately for those affected users, Microsoft has no clear solution.

    We know that with a hardware launch of this magnitude customers will have questions and we have many avenues for customers to get the answers they need and get back in the game as soon as possible. Rest assured we plan to take care of our customers. Any customer

  • Double XP Event Planned for Battlefield 4 to Apologize for Server Issues - November 28 to December 5

    DICE's General Manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson, announced today that there will be a special double XP event starting on November 28 for Battlefield 4. The reason for the special event is due to the recent server issues that Battlelog had thanks to a lengthy DDoS attack and for various PlayStation 4 crashing issues.

    In addition, any player that logs into the game on December 5 will get the M1911 pistol scope. This item was previously only available to those that worked at DICE.

  • Microsoft Severs All Ties with Apparent Jerk KSI

    Microsoft Severs All Ties with Apparent Jerk KSI

    I don't know who KSI is, but from what the Internet tells me, he's quite the misogynistic douchebag that sexually harassed female event goers at Eurogamer Expo 2012. He's been banned from all Eurogamer events as a result. He was oddly chosen as one of the performers scheduled for the Xbox One launch event in London. Afterwards, he filed a YouTube copyright claim against a journalist that questioned Microsoft's decision to hire a huge douchebag for their event. A "copyright safe" version of the video can be found below. Microsoft was apparently unaware of KSI's "e...
