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...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

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...

  • Pets Added in Fortnite Season 6

    Pets Added in Fortnite Season 6

    The sixth season of Fortnite is upon us. And while Epic Games is dubbing it the "Darkness Rises" season, I'm calling it the season where you can get pets.

    Pets in Fortnite. Hell to the yes!

    I'm talking about adorable dogs. I'm talking about dragons. I'm talking about some chameleon looking things. Can you pet them? I don't know, but I sure as hell hope so!

    Oh and there are some other changes like to the map and something about a giant purple cube and Shadow Stones? There's probably some more stuff but none of them involve pets. Of course, all of this coincides with the latest release of the Battle Pass and other tasty updates in the V6.00 update.

    Fallout 76 BETA Dated for October 23; Intro Video Revealed

    We have some big news for those looking forward to trying out Fallout 76 today. The B.E.T.A. (Break-It Early Test Application) arrives first on the Xbox One on October 23. PlayStation 4 and PC users will get access to it on Tuesday, October 30.

  • PUBG Partners with FACEIT for Competitive Gaming

    PUBG Partners with FACEIT for Competitive Gaming

    PUBG and eSports go together like, well, like two things that sort of go together but not quite and is only somewhat enjoyed by the masses but would maybe be accepted more if the presentation was better than it used to be? You know what I'm talking about.

    That's perhaps why today's news about FACEIT and PUBG teaming up is probably a good thing to learn about.

    On September 28, PUBG will be added to the FACEIT platform for Europe, North America, and South America. This essentially means that competitive players will have a structured place to keep track of progression and help them get noticed by professional teams. The upcoming...

  • BlizzCon Virtual Ticket Includes World of Warcraft Classic Demo Access

    BlizzCon Virtual Ticket Includes World of Warcraft Classic Demo Access

    Blizzard just made the BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket a bit more appealing for those who may not have felt like $49.99 (USD) was worth it quite yet. The studio revealed that shortly after the opening ceremony for November 2 (near 1PM PT), players will be able to download the still in development BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo that those actually at the event will get to try on the show floor.

    It is perhaps important to know that this year's Virtual Ticket is $10 more than the previous year. There also doesn't seem to be a pet or mount included with this year's ticket either? So maybe that time limited demo won't be enough to change your mind. That's up to you to decide. ...
