Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Valve is straight up calling this a "full-length" game that just happens to require a VR device to experience. Pre-orders are available now, months ahead of the game's currently planned release in March 2020. A pre-order discount brings the $59.99 (USD) price down...
 

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...

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.

    Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    VGX is the new name for the Video Game Awards (VGAs) from years past. It seems like this year will be no exception to the rule of "new game trailer reveals" at the event as Square Enix is alluding to a new Tomb Raider next-gen reveal at this year's event in December.

    It started off simply with an Amazon Italy listing for a PS4 version of Tomb Raider. After, a Square Enix representative told IGN to keep an eye out for events in December for a potential reveal.

    Tested Compares PlayStation 4 Hard Drives - SSD, Hybrid, and HDD

    Will Smith from Tested.com recently put the PlayStation 4 through a number of tests to perhaps answer, "how much will a solid-state drive improve performance on a console?" The answer may not surprise you but there are some catches here.


    Does this sway your decision to perhaps upgrade your PS4 hard drive? If so, which direction are you leaning more towards? Simply a higher capacity drive? Or will you instead opt for a hybrid drive instead now?...

    Porn Site Vows to Support PlayStation 4

    Could the support of a porn site really help sway people to use one console instead of another? Maybe. I'd like to believe that wouldn't be the case, but you never know. So perhaps it is in Sony's favor that porn site, Pornhub (I'm not going to link to it), has offered up their endorsement for the PlayStation 4 (Teehee... Play...Station).
