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...

    EA Shuts Down Dead Space Developer Visceral Games

    EA has added yet another tally to their ever growing wall of studios they have shut down. The latest to fall victim is none other than Visceral Games, the studio behind the Dead Space franchise, Battlefield Hardline, and an upcoming Star Wars game.

Throughout the development process, we have been testing the game concept with players, listening to the feedback about what and how they want to play, and closely tracking fundamental shifts in the marketplace.

  • Review: Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire (PC)

    Review: Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire (PC)

    This is Guild Wars at its absolute best.

    Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire is the best that the Guild Wars franchise has ever been. ArenaNet has done an absolutely stellar job here. The visuals are fantastic. The already solid graphics and colorful spells complemented by gorgeous vistas throughout a number of varied and richly detailed environments. The story is thoroughly engaging from start to finish. Any reservations about the additions of mounts into the franchise should be tossed aside. Perhaps most importantly, ArenaNet learned from the mistakes in Heart of Thorns and addressed the biggest problem that plagued that previous expansion: the grind. Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire takes place throughout a number of varied location in the Crystal Desert and ...

  • Former Naughty Dog Employee, David Ballard, Claims He was Sexually Harassed by Lead in 2015

    David Ballard was an environmental artist and level designer throughout most of the Uncharted series in addition to The Last of Us. I say "was" because Ballard parted ways from Naughty Dog in 2016, though it seems as though he did not leave on friendly terms.

    He says he was fired from Naughty Dog after suffering a mental breakdown in early 2016 as a result of being "sexually harassed at Naughty Dog by a lead" in late 2015. He states that Sony tried to buy his silence about what happened to him. I'll let his own words speak for themselves on the matter.

    Ballard's reveal of this information comes at a time w...
