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 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...

  • There are Nazis in New Orleans According to Latest Wolfenstein II Gameplay Video

    The latest trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus informs us that there are Nazis in New Orleans. This is actually less of a trailer and more of a developer walkthrough video. It features over 20 minutes of gameplay, so it's pretty obvious that there will be spoilers included.

  • Valve Removes 173 Spam Titles from Steam Yet Keeps Achievement Farming Games

    Valve Removes 173 Spam Titles from Steam Yet Keeps Achievement Farming Games

    Earlier, Valve pulled 173 "spam" titles from the Steam store. These titles belonged to Silent Echo Studios. The studio avoided paying the $100 fee for Steam Direct on multiple occasions by submitting multiple games at once.

    This led to multiple games being added to the Steam store to the tune of roughly a couple dozen games per month. These were all submitted with Steam trading cards and thus attracted collectors that just had to catch 'em all. The studio made a pretty penny on the sale of the Steam cards and would pump out even more spam titles to earn even more revenue from the cards. Rinse and repeat.

    A statement issued to Polygon by Valve said that...

    New Need for Speed Payback Trailer Expands its Horizons

    A new trailer for Need for Speed Payback came out earlier today and it looks as though the series is really ready to expand to greater Horizons (ahem...). Welcome to Fortune Valley, an open area filled with various events, activities, and collectibles.
    In the corrupt gamblers paradise, each region is filled to the brim with events, activities, and collectables. Cruise through the glamour and grit of Silver Rock or drift up and down the mountain switchbacks of Mount Providence.

  • (Update) Blue Reflection PC Port is Locked to 720p Resolution

    (Update) Blue Reflection PC Port is Locked to 720p Resolution

    Update on September 26, 2017: It looks as though someone working in the Koei Tecmo customer service department had some bad information.

    The game is now released and it looks as though that "720p" assets and internal resolution was a big load of nothing.

    Multiple users, including Raul DJ on the Steam forums, posted comparison screenshots of the PC version of the game with the PlayStation 4 version. The comparisons show little to no resolution issues with the PC release and are often times a bit clearer than their PS4 counter-parts. We certainly apologize for passing along what evidently turned out to be false information. At that time, that information, which came from official developer s...

    WWE 2K18 "Anthem" TV Spot

    I literally just got this in my email moments before I was about to close Outlook, so this is as hot off the press release mailing list as you can get. 2K released the "Anthem" TV spot for WWE 2K18 today.

    It first appeared last night during WWE No Mercy and it's "an anthem performed by Snoop Dogg that highlights what the WWE 2K18 campaign tagline, BE LIKE NO ONE, really means."

    There is also a new trailer to celebrate the occasion.
