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...

  • Telltale Announces The Walking Dead: The Final Season for 2018

    Telltale Announces The Walking Dead: The Final Season for 2018

    Telltale Games announced today that they are working on The Walking Dead: The Final Season with hopes of getting it out some time in 2018. That's currently the working title for it, so I'm sure the final one won't be quite as on the nose as "The Final Season" is.
    In a series retrospective released today in celebration of Comic-Con through Telltale's Summer 2017 Update, the development team at Telltale sat down to reflect on the journey of series protagonist 'Clementine' since the first episode premiered in April of 2012. In discussing the character's path all the way through 2017's conclusion of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier,

    Observer Brings Horror Cyberpunk to PC, PS4, and XB1 on August 15

    Oh baby, a new cyberpunk game is rapidly approaching release. What's more is the fact that this one has some horror themes blended in with the cyberpunk. The game is Observer (stylized as >observer_) and it is slated to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 15. Bloober Team, the studio that created Layers of Fear is the development team working on Observer.

    The game features Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty in Blade Runner) as Detective Dan Lazarski. The game says that what you see will disturb you and well, I actually hope that's just not them over selling the game.

  • Alex Mauer Admits Malicious Intent Against Don Thacker and Imagos in Recent Court Filings

    In legal documents made public today by Imagos Films, Imagos Softworks, and Don Thacker against Alex Mauer, it looks as though Mauer acted with malicious intent against Don Thacker. She admitted to knowingly and willfully abusing the legal system in order to try to bankrupt Don Thacker and Imagos. In the lead up to this, Mauer has filed a number of DMCA takedowns across a number of YouTube videos.

    Many of these videos were from normal users that put up gameplay footage of the game Starr Mazer: DSP. See, Mauer made some music for the game and, despite working as a contract for hire, she felt as though she owned the rights to the music that was created for the...

    Given the August 15 release date for Nidhogg 2, it just makes sense that we have a new trailer and some pre-order information to pass along to you today.

    Aaryn Flynn Leaving BioWare; Casey Hudson Returning as GM of BioWare

    In what can only be described as a bit of "holy crap" news, comes this dual story from BioWare. Today, Aaryn Flynn announced that he is leaving BioWare and EA. Taking the reigns from him for General Manager of BioWare is Casey Hudson?

    That's right, Casey Hudson is back as the General Manager at BioWare. This comes about three years after "retiring" from the gaming industry and about two years after joining Microsoft to work on Xbox and HoloLens.

    Whew, that's already a lot to take in. Both Flynn and Hudson expressed their feelings today in separate blog posts on the BioWare website. First up, let's see what Aaryn Flynn has to say on his departure.

  • Ubisoft Again Kills Might & Magic Franchise as Showdown Pulled Off Steam Early Access

    It looks like the Might & Magic franchise is once again dead. This is evident by the fact that Ubisoft Montreal, the development studio behind Might & Magic Showdown is killing the servers for the game at the end of July and has already made it so that nobody else can purchase the game through Steam.

    Might & Magic Showdown was available through Steam Early Access for $19.99 (USD) since mid-January 2017. This means that the game has had the ability to be sold to consumers as an Early Access title for the past six months. Such are the dangers of Early Access, though one really wouldn't expect to encounter something like this from a major development studio.
