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...

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...

  • Project Cars 2 Finally Gets Fun this Winter

    Project Cars 2 Finally Gets Fun this Winter

    The "Fun Pack" for Project Cars 2 was announced today. If you weren't having fun yet in this racing title, then maybe this Fun Pack will be right up your alley? The weird thing is that this Fun Pack is slated for release in "Winter 2017" and well, 2017 is almost over. I'm guessing they either mean this content will be out before the end of the year or "Winter 2017" includes the Winter season that began in 2017 and ends in 2018.

    The Fun Pack includes two new tracks and eight new cars. And God help you if you don't have fun with them.

Will you be able to replicate the size and scope of his empire? Maybe, that's kind of on you and your own abilities. If you do, you'll have some of the following to help you along your potential rise to glory.

  • Steam Community Reportedly Blocked in China

    Steam Community Reportedly Blocked in China

    China sure does love its censorship. By that I mean actual censorship, not that fake "censorship" bullshit that people like to throw around like it's going out of style when they have no other avenue to turn to in an argument. No, we're talking about real, bonafide censorship from the Chinese government here. The latest victim appears to be the Steam Community.

    This information comes to us courtesy of ValveTime on Twitter. They pull their information from GreatFire, a website that appears to keep track of the sites and services blocked in China. From the looks of things, the Steam Community has been...

    Watch Dogs is Now Free as Ubisoft Extends Free Game Event for Holidays

    Just a week ago we brought you word that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was free courtesy of Ubisoft and their Uplay digital platform. All you had to do was log into your Uplay account and add the game and it was yours to keep forever.

    It seems as though those who were late to the party have a second chance at experiencing a fun game. Their free game giveaway has been extended until December 23, 2017. That places the new deadline at the end of this week.

    Not only has the deadline been extended, but Ubisoft has added Watch Dogs to the free game list that already included Black Flag and World in C...
