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...

  • Xbox All Access is a New Way to Purchase an Xbox One

    Xbox All Access is a New Way to Purchase an Xbox One

    Microsoft announced Xbox All Access today and with it came a whole new way for potential owners to pay for and purchase an Xbox One console.

    This is a U.S. focused subscription model that will allow you to pay a monthly fee in order to purchase an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, plus two years of Xbox Live Gold, plus two years of Xbox Game Pass. The Xbox One S payment plan starts at $22 (USD) a month for 24-months or $35 for 24-months for the Xbox One X bundle deal.

    There is no interest on these bundles. Not only that, but if you do the quick math on this, the Xbox One S bundle will actually run you about $130 less than if you bought the system, Live, and Game Pass separately.
    For no upfront cost

    48 Minutes of Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay

    Back at E3, members of the press were shown off a bunch of gameplay for Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red. That footage was not revealed to the public until today.

    The footage is taken from an early build of the game. Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't even have a release date yet, so you're getting a look at something that is probably a year or more away from release still.

  • Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PS4)

    Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PS4)

    The best Yakuza game to date.
    Since January of 2017, I've had the good fortune to be able to review every Yakuza release that has come out on the PlayStation 4. It started with Yakuza 0, followed by Yakuza Kiwami, and then Yakuza 6 just a few months back. I have seen the beginning and the emotional end to this franchise. I have played it across two different game engines. Every entry has offered up something new and unique to experience while still maintaining a certain alluring appeal that kept me hooked through dozens upon dozens of gameplay hours.

    Fast-forward slightly and we arrive here at the present day with the Western release of Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of the 2006 PlayStation 2 game, Yakuza 2. It runs on the all-new Dragon Engine that we first saw with Yakuza 6. It also adds on a heaping helping of additional story content on top of the original title. It also somehow manages...

  • Life is Strange 2 Official Gameplay Footage

    Life is Strange 2 Official Gameplay Footage

    Just earlier this week, we were given our first official look at Life is Strange 2. Apparently, they also released a near 20 minute long gameplay video around the same time. I didn't see it until now, so hopefully this is still new to some of you out there.

    The video will obviously contain some level of spoilers. Don't watch if you want to go in completely blind to the first episode of Life is Strange 2 when it launches on September 27.
