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,...

    Watch the First Five Minutes of BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea

    The Burial at Sea DLC is rapidly approaching release for BioShock Infinite. As such, Irrational Games has released a video of the first five minutes of the DLC alongside a handful of new screenshots.

    I think this goes without saying but if you don't want any spoilers, don't watch the first five minutes of gameplay.




    We still don't have any solid idea on the release date for this DLC. Hopefully it's very, very soon....

    Dungeon Defenders II Shifts Focus Off MOBA and Back to Tower Defense

    Originally, Dungeon Defenders II was going to be another MOBA-style game despite the original being almost purely tower defense.

  • USA vs Europe in Battlefield 4: Showdown Live Xbox One Event Slated for November 1

    I'm so confused by this thing it's not even funny. EA has announced the Battlefield 4: Showdown Live Europe vs. USA event that will pit two teams of 32 against each other.

    The Showdown will be live streamed through Xbox Live and will "mark the debut of Battlefield 4 Second Assault," which is an expansion for the game that includes four "fan-favorite" maps from Battlefield 3.

    Yes, the Xbox One will get this expansion first.
    The event will be live streamed on Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft on November 1 at 10:00AM
