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...

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...

  • Could The Avengers Project be the First Great Movie Based Superhero Game?

    Could The Avengers Project be the First Great Movie Based Superhero Game?

    Earlier this year, Marvel and Square Enix teamed up. in what could be considered one of the most unlikely of pairings. The two announced a joint partnership that will bring together the world of the Avengers with the development talents of those at Square Enix. They are calling it The Avengers Project and it could prove to be one of the best movie based superhero games ever created.

    In the past we have had plenty of films that were birthed from games. We have had Mortal Kombat give rise to at least one good film and even a half-decent animated TV series. Street Fighter had a rather poor showing on the big screen. Others like Resident Evil and even Silent...

    ECHO Brings Sci-Fi Adventure to PS4 and PC on September 19

ECHO is an upcoming sci-fi adventure that has been given a September 19 release date on the PC and PlayStation 4.

    Destiny 2 PC Beta Begins August 28; Minimum Requirements Announced

    The dates have been finalized for the Destiny 2 beta on the PC. Those who pre-ordered the game will get to play it starting on August 28. It then turns into an open beta on August 29. The beta is slated to end for everyone on August 31. Will they extend the beta to last roughly a week as they did for console players? Maybe. Given how the PC release is already dreadfully behind the console release, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high for much of anything.

    Bungie also made note of the minimum and recommended specs that you should have for the game.
