Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that the game was available...
 

Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

The original plan from Red Candle Games was to remove the game from...
 

Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features.

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...

    Law Firm Investigating Grounds for 'Joy-Con Drift' Class-Action Lawsuit

    There's a lawsuit a brewin'.

    A law firm in the States are apparently getting ready to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. The potential lawsuit stems from the growing anger over "Joy-Con drift" issues that have plagued the Nintendo Switch controllers since launch.

    If you don't know what Joy-Con drift is, Kotaku actually put up an article about this growing problem just this past week. In short, it's when the Switch detects movement from a stick that the player may not even be touching. For example: If the right stick controls the camera, you may notice...

If you don't already know, GORN is a cartoony but violent gladiator sim. You are pitted against NPCs as you utilize physics based combat and weapons to beat your opponents into a pulp, quite literally.

    GORN spent roughly two years in Steam Early Access and ended up being one of the top ten games for VR as far as sales are concerned. At least, that's what they're telling...

This money is earned for Frank Reynolds, who is portrayed by Danny DeVito in the TV show.
