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...

  • Belgium Says Loot Boxes are Gambling, Pushes to Ban Them in Europe

    Belgium Says Loot Boxes are Gambling, Pushes to Ban Them in Europe

    This past week, Belgium's Gaming Commission said that they launched an investigation into whether or not loot boxes are considered a form of gambling. Today, it is being reported that they have indeed ruled that loot boxes are gambling.

    PC Gamer has a rough translation of the ruling courtesy of Google translate.
    The Google translation is a little sloppy, as usual, but the message is clear enough. "The mixing of money and addiction is gambling," the Gaming Commission declared. Belgium's Minister of Justice Koen Geens also weighed in, saying, "Mixing gambling and gaming, especially at a young age, is

  • Players Finally Discover Bloodborne Enemy First Seen Three Years Ago at PSX

    Players Finally Discover Bloodborne Enemy First Seen Three Years Ago at PSX

    At 2014's PlayStation Experience, some new footage for Bloodborne was shown off. At the time, the game was still about four months out from release. The enemy that was shown off was this massive creature that had a very distinct arm that glowed red hot with heat. This elusive Chalice Dungeon enemy, the "Flaming Undead Giant," has seemingly gone undiscovered, perhaps thought lost to the cutting room floor as content sometimes is. Fast-forward to 2017 and a remarkable discovery was made: The giant is indeed still in the game. It only managed to hide itself for nearly three years until being discovered by members of a group tha...

  • Xbox One X, SNES Classic, and Nintendo Switch Make Time's Top 10 Gadgets of 2017

    In a list of just ten gadgets for an entire year, it's quite remarkable to see not one, not two, but three gaming focused items. These items are the Xbox One X, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic, and the Nintendo Switch.

    These three items made Time's top 10 best gadgets of 2017. The Xbox One X came in at the eighth spot, the SNES Classic snagged sixth, while the Switch itself was the single best gadget of them all.

  • UK Charts: Star Wars Battlefront II Sales Down 60% Compared to First Game

    UK Charts: Star Wars Battlefront II Sales Down 60% Compared to First Game

    According to figures released by UKIE and GfK for the UK, sales for Star Wars Battlefront II are down around 50% compared to first week sales of the first Battlefront release. In addition, sales of the physical release of the game are down 61% compared to those of the first title.

    It is only a guess, but it is entirely possible that some of those lost retail sales were made up via digital purchases. According to the sales charts shared by GI.biz, over half (55%) of all Battlefront II sales were on the PlayStation 4. Roughly 44% of all sales were for the Xbox One, and PC comes in at a whopping 1%.

    This all still somehow put Star Wars Battlefront II in the second position for the UKIE/GfK Top Ten list for the week ending November 18. The top spot belongs to, you guessed it, Call of Duty: WWII.
