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...

    This extra-special present, delivered free on Saint Nicholas' Day for every new and existing Fight of Gods player, sets up the scuffle of the season as the God Of Christmas does battle with the other God Of Christmas for the ultimate glory: complete ownership of the holiday.

  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Upcoming Desert Map Now has a Name

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Upcoming Desert Map Now has a Name

    The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds team revealed the name of their upcoming desert map today in a lengthy Steam Community blog post. The name is Miramar and in addition to the name reveal, the team shined a light on a number of the major cities and locations you'll get to try to survive in.
    When we decided to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel. We wanted to go the opposite direction of having lush fields and forests and arrived at the harsh and unforgiving desert of what we can now reveal is Miramar. The unique terrain and dense urban areas of Miramar will create a new Battle Royale experience where the old strategies may no longer work and new tactics are required. We don't want to tell you too much as you

  • Secret of Mana Remake Getting Limited Edition Physical Release for PlayStation 4

    A limited number of physical copies of Secret of Mana Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on February 15, 2018. Naturally, these physical copies will be exclusive to GameStop retailers in the United States, EB Games in Canada, and at some unnamed retailers in Latin America.

    Yes, the game will still be available digitally. I wonder if we'll ever see unopened versions of the PlayStation 4 release selling in excess of $1,700 (USD) like we've seen with the SNES release.

    Australian Open Tennis Coming to PS4 and XB1 in January 2018

    When's the last time there was a tennis game released for both the Xbox and PlayStation? I'm fairly certain that this is the first tennis game for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Regardless, Australian Open Tennis was announced today for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and it will be released January 2018.

    The game is being developed by Melbourne's Big Ant Studios, the studio behind the classic game, Don Bradman Cricket. It will feature Rafael Nadal and Angelique Kerber on the cover of the game. It's not exactly clear if there are other known players included in the roster. The game will feature grass courts, hard, and clay. It's also still not clear if there will be other Grand Slam events featured in the game. However, there is a ...
