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...

  • Surprise! Voice Chat on Switch is a Disaster

    Surprise! Voice Chat on Switch is a Disaster

    Early tests reveal that the voice chat solution for the Nintendo Switch is a total disaster. We aren't even talking about the number of wires and connected devices you need to use if you want to use a headset (pictured above). Unlike conventional voice chat systems on say the Xbox or PlayStation, Nintendo went with a unique approach for the Switch. You have to download an app for either your iOS or Android device. Don't have one of those? Too bad.

    Nintendo is quick to point out on the official Switch Online App overview page that you cannot use voice chat in the background. You cannot use your phone for literally anything else other than voice chat while you want to talk. ...

  • Doom Update 6.66 Unlocks All Multiplayer DLC for Free; Overhauls Progression System

    Bethesda and id Software have blown open the gates (of hell) today with the 6.66 update for Doom. Today's update unlocks all multiplayer DLC content for all players. This includes nine maps, three weapons, three demons, new armor, and equipment that may have been locked behind a paywall with the game's Season Pass. This update also totally overhauls the game's progression system. In the past, gear such as guns, equipment, and customization options were unlocked randomly. Now, the unlocks are set in stone and are tied to specific level requirements and besting specific in-game challenges. If you know of something you really want to have, you can now set a goal in stone on how to earn it instead of just hoping the RNG Gods are on your side today. Let's let D...
