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

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019. 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...

  • Wreckfest Celebrates Upcoming Release with a New Trailer

    Wreckfest Celebrates Upcoming Release with a New Trailer

    In about a week on June 14, Wreckfest will finally leave Early Access and will be released on the PC. A console release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be released on November 20.

    For those of you still waiting for the final release, there is something very important to note here: The price will rise once it leaves Early Access. That means if you want the game, you should probably get it now before release so you don't pay the increased price of $44.99 (USD). It's up to you, of course, but I'm just looking out for you and your wallet. Maybe you can even repay my kindness by sending some of that saved money my way. No? Well,...

  • Rumor: Crackdown 3 Delayed Until 2019

    Rumor: Crackdown 3 Delayed Until 2019

    Try to at least act surprised when you read this, okay?

    According to sources close to Kotaku, Crackdown 3 has been delayed until 2019. The game was originally announced back at E3 2014. It was given a rough "2016" release window.

    It did not come out in 2016.

    At some point it was said to be ready for release alongside the Xbox One X in early November 2017.

    It was not.

    It was then pushed to a Spring 2018 release period. Looking at my calendar, I'd say that's a swing and a miss as well. Now we're possibly looking at a 2019 release for the game that long ago promised to harness the power of the ...

  • Valve Will Continue to Do Nothing About What Games Appear on Steam

    Valve Will Continue to Do Nothing About What Games Appear on Steam

    Valve has essentially said "fuck it, put whatever you want on Steam just so long as we get a piece."

    This seems to be the general tone of today's blog post by Valve's Erik Johnson. The company that runs Steam continues to show that they kind of don't really care about what appears on the platform so long as it's not "illegal or straight up trolling." Of course, Valve also noted that they are the ones who ultimately decide what is "illegal" or "trolling" as it applies to games on their platform.
    (W)e've decided that the right approach is to allow everything onto the Steam Store, except for things that we decide are illegal, or straight up trolling. Taking this approach allows us to focus less on trying to police what should be on Steam, and
