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...

  • Meet Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth's Magical Warlock Class

    Meet Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth's Magical Warlock Class

    Playing as a magic class in an RPG is always my go-to choice when first starting out. Fortunately for people like me, Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth includes a Warlock class and we're here to learn about it today.
    There are a lot of monsters that call the Yggdrasil home. Sure, cold hard steel and explosive gunpowder can usually get the job done, but sometimes a little more "oomph" is required when dealing with these pesky beasts. Thankfully, the Celestrian's Warlock class provides a magical spark to these engagements. And when we say spark, we actually mean ancient power that can summon raging fireballs, monstrous hailstorms, amplify other magical abilities,

    The fourth and latest monthly update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has finally arrived. Delayed by a week due to a technical issue this is technically the July monthly update for the game. It's also the update that officially introduces first-person mode to the game. This update also introduces new cosmetic items into two "free" crates and additional items into one paid crate (you need to purchase a key to unlock it).

  • Prey 1.05 Update Finally Address PS4 Stuttering Issue

    Prey 1.05 Update Finally Address PS4 Stuttering Issue

    The upcoming 1.05 patch for Prey will finally address the frame-tearing and stuttering issue that players have complained about since the game's release back in May. The 1.05 patch isn't just coming to the PS4, of course, so we have the full list of changes for you to feast your eyes upon.

    When exactly is this update coming? I'm not 100% sure. It merely says that the patch is "upcoming" so I would assume that means it will be here either this week or next.
