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...

  • Battlefield 1 Rupture Map Now Available for Free Plus More Coming in the Months Ahead

    DICE and EA continue to do some nice stuff once in a while for their fans. The latest is the release of the Rupture map for free to everyone that owns Battlefield 1. This map was once a part of the They Shall Not Pass expansion.

    But wait, there's more. Yes, there is more free content coming soon.

    Over the next few months, DICE plans on releasing more free content to all Battlefield 1 players. This begins in May with the release of the Soissons map from They Shall Not Pass. June will see the release of a new mode called Shock Operations.
    The mode supports 40 players and sees attackers and defenders

  • Battlefield V Might Also Have a Battle Royale Mode

    Battlefield V Might Also Have a Battle Royale Mode

    It seems as though Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII isn't the only big AAA FPS to possibly include a battle royale mode. No sir, it looks like Battlefield V may also go that route. I am incredibly unsurprised that EA would have DICE jump onto the battle royale bandwagon right now.

    The latest rumor comes to us from VentureBeat. Their source is "someone with knowledge of the studio who asked to remain anonymous."

    The Station Moves to VR Devices Later in this Year

    In Q3 of 2018, The Station will be relesaed for various virtual reality devices like the PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and the Oculus Rift. In addition to this news comes word that a free exploration mode was released for free today on the PC version of the game and will come soon to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

    As you may recall, we thought quite favorably about The Station in a non-VR setting and can only imagine what that game would be like in VR. Donations to purchase a VR headset for review purposes are still being taken.
    After discovering an intelligent species on a distant planet, a small research crew has

  • Pro Counter-Strike Player Suspended After Making Racist Comment

    Pro Counter-Strike Player Suspended After Making Racist Comment

    A "professional" Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player has been suspended from the Faceit Pro League for one month after he called another player a "fucking monkey." Those were the words uttered by Nils "k1to" Gruhne of Alternate Attax towards Joao "felps" Vasconcellos during a European FPL game.

    Gruhne later issued a remark via Twitter saying that "we have (all) made mistakes and learned." Faceit still decided to take action against Gruhne. Milos "Mikey" Nedeljkovic issued this statement about the suspension.
    What happened yesterday is something that went beyond being a genuine joke among players at the point that one member

  • It's Time for Call of Duty to Ditch PC and the Single-Player Campaign

    It's Time for Call of Duty to Ditch PC and the Single-Player Campaign

    Yesterday, it was revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII was going to ditch the single-player campaign due to unspecified "development issues." This begs the question: Is this the beginning of the end for the single-player Call of Duty experience? More importantly, should this be the end of single-player campaigns for Call of Duty?

    In short: Yes.

    According to PSNProfiles, only 31.34% of all PlayStation 4 owners beat Call of Duty: WWII's single-player campaign. Compare that to the 36.51% that hit Prestige 1 in the online multiplayer, and the over 37% that completed the first map of Zombies. For a franchise that once seemed to pride itself on...

    Rumor: Battle Royale Mode Included with Black Ops 4

    I saw this earlier in Discord and I thought it was just some stupid joke. Nope, apparently there's a fairly solid rumor going around that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will include a Battle Royale mode.

    Both Kotaku and Charlie Intel posted independent rumors today that Raven Software is working on this Battle Royale mode for the Treyarch developed Black Ops IIII.
    Via Kotaku:
