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...

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...

  • Multiplayer Horror Game Daemonical Announced for Steam Early Access

    Multiplayer Horror Game Daemonical Announced for Steam Early Access

    Daemonical will soon (in May) be released on Steam Early Access. What is Daemonical? I'm glad you asked. Daemonical is a multiplayer game where you try to survive on a remote island-- Hey wait! It's not a survival game! It's an asymmetrical mutliplayer PvP horror game!

    Here is part of the very lengthy "about" section of the game from Steam. Maybe this will give you a better idea of what the game is actually about.

    It's Contraband Week in GTA Online

    Rockstar Games has proclaimed this week to be "Contraband Week" in GTA Online. Outside of the usual double RP and double GTA$ events, this week will include some more stuff. Sorry, I haven't actually read beyond the headline yet so I'm not sure yet what all it includes.

    Let's see, there seems to be double RP and GTA$ Gunrunning Sell Missions, plus 50% faster research for Bunkers, an extended double RP and GTA$ for Target Assault from last week, and discounts on various Weaponized and High-End vehicles from Warstock Cache & Carry.

    Rockstar has also passed along a teaser for some upcoming vehicles and game modes including "The Vespucci Job" that places players in the driver's seat of a new vehicle, the Weeny Issi Classic. Players will have to run from the LSPD or play as the LSPD in these vehicles that may...
