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...

  • STALKER 2 Announced Only to Find a Publisher

    STALKER 2 Announced Only to Find a Publisher

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was announced earlier this month, but it sounds like that announcement was made a bit too early. This is, of course, ignoring the fact that they announced a 2021 release date for the game here in 2018. The bigger issue here comes from a revelation shared today that STALKER 2 doesn't yet have a publisher. The early, some would say premature, announcement made this month was made in order to try to secure a publisher for the game. That is to say, STALKER 2 doesn't actually have a publisher yet despite the game being announced. Yikes. This is according to Epic Games's director of publishing Sergey Galyonkin. As of right now, the gam...

    Battlefield V Women "Controversy" - DICE Tells Butthurt Men to Shut Up


    Ever since the Battlefield V reveal a couple of days ago, a bunch of men ignorant of a little thing called history decided to express their ignorance in the best way possible: On social media. They don't seem to realize that women have played important roles in most wars throughout history and World War II is no exception.

    Thankfully, DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson knows his stuff and he's someone who stands by his game. Gabrielson took to Twitter today to essentially tell the ignorant masses to shut up and stop being stupid.
    Naturally, those same people that were huffing and puffing...
