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...

  • Review: Destiny 2 (PC)

    Review: Destiny 2 (PC)


    Like the first game, we're left wanting more.

    When Destiny first launched in late 2014, it was something special, almost magical. Bungie and Activision created a new franchise that let players explore parts of our Solar System from their couches, forge new friendships, take down massive enemies, and feel akin to comic book superheroes. However, that game was not without its faults. At launch, the game lacked much in the way of in-game story, opting instead to send the player to a website to get a bulk of the game world's lore. The content, while fun, was just lacking. There just wasn't enough of it, especially for a game that had that Bungie's always superb gunplay. In a lot of ways, the major issues with the launch version of Destiny were ironed out as more expansions were released. This obviously wasn't the ideal solution for everyone. The short of it is that the near ideal version of Destiny didn't come together until after a number of updates, a number of content drops, and, of cou...

    Some IGN Employees Refuse to Work Following Sexual Harassment Allegations

    This past Friday, former IGN editor (current GameSpot editor) Kallie Plagge revealed that she felt sexually harassed during her time working at IGN. Specifically, she says that was harassed back in 2016 by then editor Vince Ingenito. Not only was she harassed but she says that one other employee was also harassed.

    Plagge's lengthy statement said that the harassment included "uncomfortable compliments" along with "manipulative and abusive comments." She says that Ingenito also made "overtly sexual comments" along with physical contact that she felt was inappropriate. Plagge said that Ingenito was "a man who preyed on (her), a young woman 15 years his junior." According to Plagge, HR did not fully address the harassment claims. She said th...
