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...

  • Valkyria Chronicles 4 is Now Available on Consoles and PC

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 is Now Available on Consoles and PC

    I do not know much about the Valkyria Chronicles franchise, but I do know that this press announcement for the release of Valkyria Chronicles 4 included a picture of a dog and that's a-ok in my book. You can see the dog in the thumbnail for the trailer below.

    In all seriousness though, Valkyria Chronicles 4 continues with the turn-based strategy RPG gameplay fans probably already know and love. This entry allows you to "experience the other side of the Second Europan War" and the "Operation Northern Cross" campaign.

    The base version of the game is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC for $59.99 (USD). There is a "Memoirs from Battle" release for $99.99.
    Valkyria Chronicles 4 Features:A Coming-of-Age Story in a Time of War - Valkyria Chronicles 4 takes place in the same timeframe as the original Valkyria Chronicles, but focuses on a whole new cast of main characters. Players will take command of the eager, young Commander Claude Wallace, engineer/heavy weapons extraordinaire Riley Miller, hotheaded

    Former Employee Files Lawsuit Against Telltale for Breaking Labor Laws

    The recent and very sudden closure of Telltale left many in the gaming industry saddened. Fans were sad because it their favorite franchises may never be finished or given a sequel. More importantly though, hundreds of employees were let go without advance warning and without severance pay.

    This is a big "no-no" when it comes to little things like "laws."

    A former employee of Telltale is now suing the company in a class-action lawsuit. Polygon reports that the lawsuit was filed in a federal court in San Francisco on Monday. It was submitted by Vernie Roberts on behalf of himself and the other workers that were laid off this past Friday. The suit says that Telltale did not give "cause" and did not give them "advance written notice as required by the WARN Act."...

  • Devil May Cry 5 Has Microtransactions. So What?

    Devil May Cry 5 Has Microtransactions. So What?

    Over the weekend, the Internet lost its collective mind, as it tends to do, over Bowsette Peachowser the revelation that Devil May Cry 5 will have microtransactions. These microtransactions will allow you to get a bunchy of Red Orbs, the series equivalent to experience orbs. The microtranactions are there as a way to fast-track your ability to unlock new moves in the game.

    GameSpot first noticed the microtransactions during some hands on time with Devil May Cry 5 during the Tokyo Game Show. They asked the game's director Hideaki Itsuno what the deal was with them.

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Has About 200 Species of Animal for You to Hunt and Skin

    Rockstar would like to inform you that Red Dead Redemption 2 will have about 200 species of animals, birds, and fish. All of these creatures will "behave and respond to their environment in a unique way."

    I am assuming that every single one of these animals will be able to be hunted, killed, and skinned. It just wouldn't feel right if you couldn't do that in a Red Dead Redemption sequel.

    Rockstar also passes along word that there are 19 different breeds of horses that you will be able to find in the world. These 19 breeds will have "59 different styles of coat" and you will be able to customize the crap out of them. I am assuming you cannot hunt these, but maybe just maybe.

    Troy Baker Introduced in New Death Stranding Trailer

    It looks like Ocelot a mysterious masked man was introduced this weekend to Death Stranding. Hideo Kojima and his crew at Kojima Productions showed off a new trailer during their Tokyo Game Show 2018 presentation. The new footage shows off a masked character voiced by none other than Troy Baker.
