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. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

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...

    They had zombies before, so...

    There is a new rumor going around that says Rockstar is working on some new DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2. The rumor originates from an anonymous throwaway account on Reddit (that's already a huge red flag), who says that they have a friend working at Rockstar as an environmental artist. Said friend allegedly told the throwaway account about this DLC that is being worked on.

    The Reddit thread says that this content is looking to be released in late 2019 or early 2020. It will be a big, story based piece of content that again sees you playing...

    Legen- wait for it....

    Bandai Namco announced today that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will feature a legendary cast to go with the legendary stories they want to tell in the game. I cannot vouch for the validity of just how legendary these stories or characters really are.

    Today, characters such as Vegeta, Piccolo, and Gohan were all confirmed for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. You can check them out in the images below.

    Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be released in 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot announcement came just...

    QuakeCon 2019 is All About DOOM

    DOOOOOOOOM!

    This year's QuakeCon event is all about DOOM. From the keynote to the panels, it's all DOOM all the time. Well, maybe not all the time, but DOOM is a very significant portion of this year's focus at QuakeCon.

    Appropriately, this year's QuakeCon is literally being called "QuakeCon: Year of DOOM." It all begins on July 25 when QuakeCon begins at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center. And yes, once again they will host the largest BYOC LAN event in North America if you're into that.

    For those who cannot make it to QuakeCon for...

  • New Device Allows the N64 to Connect to Modern Televisions

    New Device Allows the N64 to Connect to Modern Televisions

    For those who like retro games on retro hardware.

    I received an email today about a new device that allows those that still own their Nintendo 64 to connect it to a modern television without much issue. This means that you don't need to keep a CRT around for those times when you want to play Nintendo 64 games.

    The device is called the EON Super 64. It's supposedly a "first-of-its kind" device that allows you to plug-and-play your Nintendo 64 to modern TVs and monitors. It's being sold by CastleMania Games, through Amazon, and other retailers.

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

    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...
