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...

  • Exclusive: Agents of Mayhem PC Gameplay Preview

    Exclusive: Agents of Mayhem PC Gameplay Preview

    As part of the review process for Agents of Mayhem, I was granted permission to stream up to the first five hours of the game. There was no limit on the content that I could show, only the amount of time in which I was allowed to show it. If you happened to miss my stream last night (and I know many of you did), you can watch the full, uncut version below. Feel free to watch it all or skip around a bit. It should give you a general idea of how the game looks, how it plays, what the early story is, and what all there is to do in the futuristic version of Seoul, South Korea. The review embargo does not lift until August 1...

  • Review: Fictorum (PC)

    Review: Fictorum (PC)

    I put a spell on you, and now you're… like, really burnt to a crisp.
    Fictorum may have impressed a number of people these past few months thanks to some very handy PR work on sites like Reddit and Imgur. Chances are, if you frequent those sites, namely the sections focused on gaming, you probably came across some gifs of this game. It's the one where a wizard is crafting these powerful spells in order to blast away enemies and even entire buildings. I will freely admit that the only reason I ever became interested in Fictorum is thanks in part to seeing those gifs on a fairly regular basis. In theory, the idea for the game sounds super cool. You assume the role of this all-powerful wizard that only grows in strength as the story progresses. You move your avatar from locati...
