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...

  • The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    Docked mode is a bit better at 720p.

    When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition was announced for the Nintendo Switch this week, it was met with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. Fans were a bit worried about what sacrifices had to be made to the game's visuals to get a game as resource hungry as The Witcher 3. Even consoles like the PlayStation 4 struggled to maintain an acceptable framerate in the game at its launch.

    Admittedly, CD Projekt RED made some significant improvements to get nearly every platform running The Witcher 3 at an acceptable framerate....

    New Super Lucky's Tale Announced for Nintendo Switch

    The third game in the Lucky saga.

  • Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    A story of romance, black holes, and jazz music.

    Genesis Noir was revealed this past weekend during the PC Gaming Show at E3. It is a unique looking game that will have players exploring themes of romance and science. It explores the idea of black holes and love. It takes place before, during, and after the Big Bang. No, it doesn't have anything to do with the terrible TV show, nor does it have a laugh track, but it does have psychedelic jazz music.

    Genesis Noir is hard to explain for those of us who haven't played it. It's better to take a look at the reveal trailer,...
