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.

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...

  • LawBreakers Dev Gives Worst Excuse Ever Heard for Not Porting Game to Switch

    LawBreakers Dev Gives Worst Excuse Ever Heard for Not Porting Game to Switch

    Sure, we've heard already that the Switch just isn't powerful enough to run the latest and greatest titles at adequate resolutions, with adequate framerates, or without making significant cuts to other aspects of the game's visuals. That's all well and good and in many cases it's a perfectly valid excuse.

    Then we have Dan Nanni, the Lead Designer for LawBreakers coming along and giving us what could possibly be the worst excuse I've ever heard for why they aren't currently looking at bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch.

    This interview comes to us courtesy of GamingBolt. I'll do you a solid and make bold the key parts here.

  • Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Can Now Be Purchased Without DLC

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Can Now Be Purchased Without DLC

    I hadn't realized it, but apparently Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was being sold as a full priced title that included the DLC in that price? Apparently the fans weren't too happy about this, which is why CI Games announced today that a stand-alone version without the DLC can now be purchased through Steam.

    This stand-alone version will go for $29.99 (USD). It will include all of the patches but none of the added DLC. If you purchase this cheaper version of the game and end up wanting the DLC later, you can purchase the season pass separately for $19.99.
    After listening closely to invaluable player feedback, CI Games

    Citadel: Forged with Fire is a new "massive wizarding sandbox RPG" that is coming July 26 to PC (via Early Access) and then PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game comes from a bit of an unlikely developer, Blue Isle Studios. This is the same studio that made Slender: The Arrival. Weird, right?

    Citadel: Forged With Fire gives players complete freedom to determine their own destiny as they become an infamous hunter of other wizards, tame mighty beasts, forge alliances with fellow players to create an imposing House of Conjurers, or visit uncharted
