Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

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.

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...

    Team EnVyUs Issues Statement About TmarTn and Ties to CSGOLotto

    For those unaware of the illegal dealings of one Trevor Martin (aka: TmarTn), it would be best to begin with this earlier news post. With that said, it must be noted that TmarTn also has a partial ownership in Team EnVyUs, a group of professional players with ties to Counter-Strike, League of Legends, Overwatch, and Call of Duty (to name a few).

    Today, Team EnVyUs issued a statement about their current stance on TmarTn's partial ownership in the team and his roles with CSGOLotto.

    h3h3Productions' latest video takes a look at the shady and sometimes illegal world of gambling, trading, and skin unlocking in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
