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...

  • Overwatch Update Adds Moira, Nerfs Mercy, Buffs Ana, and More

    Overwatch Update Adds Moira, Nerfs Mercy, Buffs Ana, and More

    Today's update for Overwatch across all platforms is another big one. This update brings Moira out of the PTR and into the public eye. The other highlights include a nice damage buff for Ana, an increase in the resurrection time for Mercy (so technically, she was nerfed), and Winston's barrier now has a visible health bar.

    The full patch notes can be found below. Alternatively, you can ignore the time I had to spend formatting the notes so that they didn't look horrible when I pasted them in here and just view them directly from the Overwatch patch notes page. Just know that I will be a bit upset if you do that, but only for a few minutes.

  • Kinzie from Saints Row Joins Agents of Mayhem as Safeword

    Kinzie from Saints Row Joins Agents of Mayhem as Safeword

    First off, I'm kind of surprised that there is still content coming out for Agents of Mayhem. Secondly, the content that is coming out is none other than Kinzie from the Saints Row franchise appearing here at Safeword. Yes, despite my hopes that Agents of Mayhem would strive to distance itself from its glorious past, this happens. C'est la vie.

    At least Kinzie was a good, fun character and one that I was frankly surprised wasn't included in the original roster.

    Details on the fourth season are incredibly scarce at this point. All we have is a short teaser trailer for it. However, we do know that Living World Season 4 will take place in the period following the events of the Path of Fire expansion.

  • 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...
