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.

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...

    Breaking the Moulds: Which Game Types Are More Appealing to Women

    In the past two decades, the gambling realm has taken massive developmental strides that have seen it reach far more people than it did before. To begin with, gambling was previously regarded as an activity set aside for men. Walking into most location-based casinos, one would see the massive imbalance in the genders that were engaged in the various indulgences that were offered. Additionally, one has to go out and look for a physical location to gamble in if they craved the indulgence. Fast forward to this moment, and things have changed incredibly. The gaming scene has seen a lot more women join the platform than there ever was before; this has happened in two decades that online gambling and the...

    Fortnite Brings Back Improved 50v50 Battle Royale Mode

    Epic Games just brought back the popular 50v50 battle royale mode for Fortnite Battle Royale, but with a variety of improvements. Let's see what changes Epic made for the revival.
