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...

  • Bungie Reveals Destiny 2: Forsaken Expansion And Another Annual Pass

    Bungie Reveals Destiny 2: Forsaken Expansion And Another Annual Pass

    Get your wallets ready because the hype train will undoubtedly suck you in despite whatever ill-will you may have towards Bungie or the state of Destiny 2 as it has existed for months. What was I saying? Oh yeah, Bungie revealed the Forsaken expansion for Destiny 2 alongside yet another Annual Pass that promises even more content after the release of Forsaken.

    You know how this all goes by now.

    Bungie made the big reveal during a live stream earlier today. In it, they showed off not one, not two, but three different packages you will be able to purchase to get your Destiny 2: Forsaken fix. I mean you could get the basic version that starts at $39.99 (USD), but you're only going to get the Forsaken expansion. Maybe you should instead think about...

  • Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Launch Date Set for July 3

    Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Launch Date Set for July 3

    THQ Nordic has declared July 3 to be the Independence Day for Mars. Cool. It also just happens to be the date that Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered will be released on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    THQ Nordic says that those that already own the 2009 release of Red Faction: Guerrilla on Steam will get the Re-Mars-tered edition for free. All you have to do is download the Re-Mars-tered release on Steam come July 3 and play. I mean, you don't have to play. It's there in your library whether or not you download it play it right then and there. Just, you know, you do you. THQ Nordic also put out a fresh trailer today for Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered. Well, the trailer is fresh even if the song in it is not. It's a little sad to think that this is the firs...

  • Review: Vampyr (PC)

    Review: Vampyr (PC)


    Interview with a vampire.
    Please do not adjust your monitors or television sets. I did not misspell "Vampire" for the title. The game is actually entitled Vampyr and it is a legitimate spelling of the name given to the undead blood suckers we have all come to know and sometimes even love. Vampyr, the game, is a new entry in the sometimes too saturated action-RPG genre. And while it does indeed share a lot of similarities with other games in the genre like Bloodborne, , and even The Witcher, Vampyr manages to be a stand out experience. To say that Vampyr is a flawed masterpiece would not be a lie. In a lot of ways, Vampyr really pushes the action RPG genre forward while still having a few cumbersome issues that hold it back from true greatness. On the action side, we have a combat system that immediately made me think of Bloodborne, featuring f...

  • Official Anthem Box Art Revealed Ahead of E3

    Official Anthem Box Art Revealed Ahead of E3

    It looks like the official box art for BioWare's Anthem was released today? Was it leaked? I don't know. The image came courtesy of shinobi602, a person (possibly a robot) that is usually "in the know" about various gaming related things moreso than most other human beings. Where did shinobi get it? Hell if I know. He just says it came across his "feed" today.

    Whatever the original source is, the fact remains that this is apparently the official box art as confirmed by Anthem producer Mike Gamble.
    You can see the full piece of art below. Because your eyes didn't yet see it below these words...

  • Leaked Nintendo E3 2018 Announcements Include Fortnite, Overcooked! 2, Paladins, and More

    A new E3 2018 leak hit this evening, and this time it wasn't due to Walmart. The latest seems to have originated via 4chan and confirmed by user AAMARMO on Twitter. The image is of a document that is said to be part of the E3 showroom display planning.

    It includes the logo and marketing materials for games like Fortnite, Paladins, Dragon Ball FighterZ, FIFA 19, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, Killer Queen Black (unannounced), and Overcooked! 2 (also unannounced). This leak does have some substance to back it up beyond the original source and the aforementioned Twitter confirmation. ...
