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

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

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...

  • Valve Puts Out Last Call for Portal 2 Nendoroids

    Valve Puts Out Last Call for Portal 2 Nendoroids

    Whenever I get a press release sent to my inbox from Valve, there's always a bit of shock and excitement that accompanies the notification. Is it a new game? Is is the Panorama update for CSGO? No, sadly, this email today was none of that. It was instead a notification that the limited-time offer for Portal 2 Nendoroids is coming to a close in a few days.

    This includes the P-Body Nendoroid and the Atlas Nendoroid. You can get each of them for 5,800 Japanese Yen or about $53 (USD).

    Both P-Body and Atlus come with essentially the same things, so I'll just paste the description for P-Body here.

    Experience 4D Gameplay with the Release of Starship Corporation

    Today's release of Starship Corporation from Iceberg Interactive and Coronado Games sees the release of one of the few "4D" games. Sadly, you won't be bending spacetime to your every whim. However, you will instead experience a game that lets you Develop, Design, Deal, and Deliver (get it?) their own intergalactic starships.
    Starship Corporation is a complex and in-depth starship-builder simulation game, in which players must design, assemble and test spaceships, in a bid to build a supreme Galactic mega-corporation. Gain your reputation by engineering and selling your own spacecraft, testing them to the limit in RTS simulated emergency and combat situations.

    Destiny 2: Warmind Expansion Launch Trailer

    We're headed back to Mars. The second DLC expansion for Destiny 2 is almost upon us. In fact, the Warmind expansion is slated to release tomorrow, May 8. So there seems to be no better time than right now to have a launch trailer, right? Right.

    Let's see what the YouTube video description says about the expansion, since I tend not to get every press releases about Destiny 2 for some reason.

  • PSA: Get Destiny 2 PC for $12 via Humble

    PSA: Get Destiny 2 PC for $12 via Humble

    Humble is offering up Destiny 2 for just $12 if you subscribe to their Humble Monthly deal. While they call it a subscription, you are free to cancel at any time. Meaning that you can put down $12 right now and get Destiny 2 right away. If nothing else, that $12 will probably also get you some additional games. I'm not 100% sure on how the whole monthly subscription thing works, but I think they add some additional games during the month? Whatever, it's Destiny 2 for $12. It's an Activision published title available for just $12 being sold through Humble less than a year following its release. That might give you so...

  • Future Minecraft Updates Not Coming to Older Consoles

    Future Minecraft Updates Not Coming to Older Consoles

    Mojang, the developers of Minecraft, said that the upcoming Aquatic update (or "Update Aquatic" as they call it) will be the last major update released for the last generation of consoles. That means the players left on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, and the Wii U will no longer receive any more content updates. The plan for the Aquatic update is to have it out first for the Java Edition, Xbox One, Switch, mobile, and Windows 10 versions. The PlayStation 4 and the aforementioned prior generation of consoles will get it a bit later. It's not very clear as to why the PS4 version is getting it later, but ...

    Bus Simulator 18 Release Date Bumped Up

    Back in April we were told that Bus Simulator 18 would be released on June 20, 2018. Well, that was a lie. That was a damned dirty lie! The game will instead be released on June 13, 2018! That's right, Bus Simulator 18 is coming to you an entire week earlier than expected. Now, isn't that a nice change of pace from the usual news about games being delayed?
