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...

  • Mad Catz is Back with New PC Hardware

    Mad Catz is Back with New PC Hardware

    Last April, we reported that Mad Catz was no more. The studio had filed for bankruptcy following poor sales, namely from the lackluster sales of their Rock Band 4 peripherals. It didn't really help that they were the co-publisher for the game which failed to make waves as the franchise did back in its heyday.

    However, Mad Catz is back. The company announced today that "Mad Catz is back in the game." Yes, the company that made your favorite third-party gaming peripherals is on the scene once again with some hot new PC gaming hardware. The announcement says that the company is back with new ownership and "a new attitude."
    At CES 2018, Mad Catz will

    Monster Hunter: World Aiming for Fall 2018 Release on PC

    Sure, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release of Monster Hunter: World (AUTO PLAYING AUDIO WARNING) is set for January 26, but what about the PC release? If you were expecting the game to be out at the same time for all platforms, you have another thing coming.

    According to the Monster Hunter Twitter account, Monster Hunter World is "currently being optimized for (the) PC" and is planned for release in Fall 2018. A developer update video was released al...

  • The Best Games on Steam in 2017

    The Best Games on Steam in 2017

    There were a lot of video games released in 2017. Most of those seem to have been released on Steam, even a metric ton that you probably have no idea even exist. I'm looking at you, oh let's just say... Evil Come. What with your two user reviews. Yeah, you.

    Even still there were a lot of games that did get noticed in 2017. Games like Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt seemed to do a-ok in 2017, earning spots in the "Platinum" tier of the best sellers in 2017 on Steam. That's actually even more impressive when you consider one of those was in Early Access for half of the year and the other came out almost...

  • Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age DLC Finally Appear on Origin

    Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age DLC Finally Appear on Origin

    For the first time in literally years, the DLC for Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age II, and Dragon Age: Origins have appeared for sale on Origin. To be more specific, the DLC is available for sale in bundles for each game. Hey, it's still a step up from being only able to buy the DLC through BioWare using their BioWare Points. Who thought that was a smart thing to keep doing when Origin has been around for years? How did it literally take years for this to happen?! And why can you still not buy the DLC items separately?! UGH!

    The Mass Effect 2 DLC Bundle is going for $24.99 (USD) through Origin.

  • Jim French, Voice Actor Known for Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Half-Life 2 Has Passed Away

    Jim French, the voice actor behind Bill in the Left 4 Dead games, passed away on December 21 at the age of 89.

    French brought a force and a life to Bill that immediately made him my go-to choice any time my friends and I played a game of Left 4 Dead. He continued to breathe life into Bill for a special mission in Payday.

    French also provided the voice for Father Grigori in Half-Life 2. He was the lone Fisherman in Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. Dota 2 players will know him best as the voice of the Elder Titan. Back in 1959, long before acting in games was ever even a thought, French was a morning radio DJ for KIRO...

  • Nintendo Delays 64GB Switch Game Cards Until 2019

    Nintendo Delays 64GB Switch Game Cards Until 2019

    At present, the physical game cards for Switch titles can only reach sizes of 32GB. That's not all that great for games that can easily be nearer to double that size. Meaning that even if you purchase the physical release, you may still be stuck with a huge download when you go to play. Nintendo originally planned to switch over to 64GB cards in the second half of 2018. It now looks like that plan has shifted until some time in 2019. Nintendo informed developers of this delay quite recently. They claim it's due to "technical issues" though no other specifics were provided. According to information provided to the ...
