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.

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...

  • Around 50,000 Minecraft Users Infected with Hard Drive Reformatting Malware

    Around 50,000 Minecraft Users Infected with Hard Drive Reformatting Malware

    According to a report from Avast, nearly 50,000 Minecraft users could be infected with malware that was installed when they downloaded a number of skins from the official Minecraft website. Just in the past ten days alone, Avast notes that they have blocked 14,500 infection attempts. According to Avast, these skins had a malicious Powershell script embedded in the image. This script, while unimpressive in the grand scheme of things, could format your hard drive, affect performance, or even cause various messages to appear in their account inbox such as "You Are Nailed, Buy A New Computer This Is A Piece Of Shit" or "You hav...

  • Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch Delayed Until Summer

    Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch Delayed Until Summer

    Dark Souls: Remastered for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC will still be released on May 25. The Nintendo Switch version was supposed to be out on that date as well but it looks like that date has been pushed back to "later this Summer."
    The new release timing gives the development team the time needed to make sure Nintendo Switch players can fully appreciate the true DARK SOULS experience anytime and anywhere, thanks to the unique portable nature of the Nintendo Switch console.

    Just chalk it up to the game needing more time for some polish before being released....

  • Sources Say Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to Ditch Traditional Single-Player Campaign

    According to a report that went up today from Polygon, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will not feature a "traditional" single-player campaign. It will instead focus more on the multiplayer and Zombie modes.

    Sources close to Polygon said that development by Treyarch on Black Ops IIII has been going rather poorly. As a result, it seems as though the single-player campaign wasn't going to be completed in time for the game's release date, which is still set for October 12, 2018. At some point, development then switched away from creating the single player campaign to expanding the game's multiplayer and Zombies modes. The source then goes on to say t...

  • Falke Coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on April 24

    Falke Coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on April 24

    Come April 24, Falke will join the fight as a new combatant in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. The character was created as an alternate clone for M. Bison. Falke was then "heavily experimented on by Shadaloo and was forced to train day in, day out to achieve perfection."

    She can "infuse Psycho Power into objects and release it through them." This is seen primarily by how she uses her staff, which she has named Harmony. All that training caught up with Falke, throwing her into a deep depression where she just wished to end it all. Thankfully, Ed came along and rescued her from Shadaloo. Now they're like brother and sister. Damn, the Street Fighter lore is weird.
    Gameplay Falke utilizes her staff in battle to keep opponents at range, but it also serves as her conduit for P

  • Review: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PS4)

    Review: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PS4)

    How far would you go for family?
    For the past year now, the Yakuza series has been burning brightly on the PlayStation 4. We had the fantastic Yakuza 0 make its way to Western audiences early in 2017, followed up by the ever so slightly inferior but still amazing Yakuza Kiwami a few months later. Despite these games existing for more than a decade across three different console generations, these PS4 releases are the first time many of us have ever gotten to experience the amazing character of Kazuma Kiryu and his world. And now in early 2018 we have the release of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, the final chapter in old man Kiryu's tale. Cast any worries you have aside because Sega says farewell to Kazuma "The Dragon of Dojima" Kiryu in grand fashion. The biggest draw of the Yakuza games has been and will always continue to be the fantastic storylines; these include the storylines contained in the bite-sized sub-mission...

  • Shenmue and Shenmue 2 Getting Re-Releases on PS4, XB1, and PC in 2018

    Shenmue and Shenmue 2 Getting Re-Releases on PS4, XB1, and PC in 2018

    Sega apparently announced tonight that they are re-releasing both Shenmue and Shenmue II for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC some time in 2018. People seem to be rather excited about this announcement. Also, the Steam Store listing for Shenmue I&II is already up.

    Sega says that the Shenmue I&II re-release is the "definitive versions" of both games. They will include such modern features like scalable screen resolutions, choice of modern or classic control schemes, various graphical options on the PC version, updated user interface, and the option to play with either the original Japanese or English voice-overs. I believe...

  • Rumor: New BioShock in Development from 2K

    Rumor: New BioShock in Development from 2K

    According to some quick investigative work by Kotaku's Jason Schreier, a "top-secret" 2K studio is working on a "top-secret" new BioShock game. Schreier found this out while reporting on a story about Hangar 13 and how that studio lost its way with Mafia III.

    This should probably not come as too big of a surprise to anybody. It will be interesting to see how this new BioShock game fares without Ken Levine and Irrational Games.
