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...

It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

  • Telltale Games Reportedly Laid Off Most Employees Today (Updated)

    Telltale Games Reportedly Laid Off Most Employees Today (Updated)

    Reports started to come in that Telltale Games, the development studio behind adventure titles like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, was hit with a huge number of layoffs today.

    The studio, which has been actively developing and releasing The Walking Dead: The Final Season, is reportedly down to just 25 employees. In early to mid-2017, over 300 people were said to be employed at the studio. And to those who may be confused, I'm not talking about 25% of the staff remaining. I'm talking about just 25 individuals. The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season came out just last month. The second episode is still slated to be released next week. Layoffs pre...

    It's been a busy day for Jump Force. Bandai Namco announced three different pieces of information for that game today that include a Collector's Edition reveal, a Season Pass announcement, and word about a closed beta.

    Thankfully, all of this can be condensed down into a paragraph and some bullet points.

  • You Can Now Download PS4 and PS2 Games with PlayStation Now

    You Can Now Download PS4 and PS2 Games with PlayStation Now

    PlayStation Now is Sony's online streaming service that allows you to pay to play a variety of PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 titles. Up until now, the only way to play these PlayStation Now titles was to stream the games online. You can understand how this might be an issue if your Internet connection sucks.

    It is perhaps a good thing that Sony just announced that PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 4 titles offered through PlayStation Now can now be downloaded locally to your system! This should eliminate any response latency and other issues related to streaming games online. Sadly, this doesn't apply to PlayStation 3 titles. ...

    We have at least one more piece of Capcom related news to share with you courtesy of the 2018 Tokyo Game Show. As you probably read in the title, they released a new trailer today for the Resident Evil 2 remake that they're hard at work on.

  • Dante Pulls His Devil Trigger in Newest Devil May Cry 5 Trailer

    Dante Pulls His Devil Trigger in Newest Devil May Cry 5 Trailer

    The 2018 Tokyo Game Show is the slow drip that just keeps on giving. About two hours ago now, Capcom unveiled a new trailer for Devil May Cry 5 that features some "bombastic Dante gameplay." Those are their words, not mine, hence the quotes though I have no reason to doubt that it lacks any measure of bombasticy.

  • Sony Takes a Page from Nintendo, Announces PlayStation Classic

    Sony Takes a Page from Nintendo, Announces PlayStation Classic

    Early this morning, Sony announced the PlayStation Classic. Similar in style to the NES Classic or SNES Classic, the PlayStation Classic will come with 20 games pre-loaded onto a miniature piece of hardware that resembles the original PlayStation console. It's gearing up for release on December 3, the 24th anniversary of the original's release.

    The PlayStation Classic will retail for $99 (USD) and includes 20 games, two controllers, an HDMI cable, and a USB cable. Oddly, it seems as though the two controllers aren't of the DualShock variety, but rather the OG PlayStation controllers. Yes kids, there existed a time where controllers didn't come with analog sticks....
