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. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

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...

  • Yakuza Kiwami Launch Edition Vlog and Free Content Release Schedule

    Yakuza Kiwami Launch Edition Vlog and Free Content Release Schedule

    With the release of Yakuza Kiwami coming on August 29, it makes sense that we get the last details on the game prior to launch. The launch vlog for Yakuza Kiwami shows us "exactly how extreme the Yakuza Kiwami launch edition is."

    There is also word about a Reddit AMA coming on September 8 at 12PM (PT) on /r/PS4. Pre-orders for the game get you access to a Yakuza Kiwami theme for the PS4.




    On top of that, the team plans on releasing some free content after the game's release. All of this can be acquired from Bob Utsunomiya, who hangs out under the Tenkaichi Street Gate. He's a clown and kind of hard to miss.

  • This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    January 8, 2016 is when we reported that Half-Life writer, Marc Laidlaw, parted ways from Valve. 18 years worth of writing for the company saw him pen some of the best games of our lifetime including the entirety of Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Portal. It was sad, disappointing, and even a bit frustrating that he left before we ever got to experience his work in Half-Life 3.

    It's weird to think about Half-Life 3. Fans have wanted it for years now, but Valve just doesn't seem capable of creating it. Perhaps they just don't want to at this point. Why would they? Steam and micro-transactions make them far more money than any single player narrative ever could, despite the hope that their fan base struggles to cling to. Episode 2 ended on one doozy of a cliff hanger and we wanted some sort of resolution to our experience. ...

  • Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Way back in the day, Rockstar Games made a series of games called Smuggler's Run. Seeing as how the last games in that series came out for the GameCube and PlayStation 2, I'd say it's been a while since Smuggler's Run saw the light of day. That is, it has remained dormant until today.

    GTA Online brings back some of that old feeling with the Smuggler's Run update. You're looking at new planes, helicopters, and ultralights to play with as you try to transport "goods" around San Andreas. I suppose saying it is no longer dormant until "today" is a lie, because the Smuggler's Run update isn't even out until August 29. However, some hot new details did come out today, which you can see below.
    Seems like recent

    Fortnite's "Survive the Storm" Update Hits August 29

    The new "Survive the Storm" mode and update is slated to arrive on Fortnite on August 29. I am assuming this is a wave-based survival mode. Let's see if I'm right.
    The threat is only here for a limited time, so players are encouraged to jump in to see if they can survive the storm and earn some exclusive loot!

    This limited-time mode will test even the most prepared Commander. Gather resources during the day while battling increasingly more difficult threats every night.
