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...

  • Nvidia Counts Down to 1080Ti Reveal

    Nvidia Counts Down to 1080Ti Reveal

    Nvidia had their own (pseudo) announcement today. The company has put up a timer on their GeForce website. The countdown is for roughly six days from now (six days, 3.5 hours from the time of this posting to be exact) and it strongly hints at them finally revealing the GTX 1080Ti.

    They also included a small tweet earlier today saying "It's almost time" with a video that again highlights the "Ti" part.
    As the countdown takes us to February 28, it might be a safe bet that the cards will be launched at that point. Let's just hope that Nvidia doesn't do a "soft" launch with this, or worse, a pa...

  • Valve Lowers Barrier to Entry for SteamVR Tracking Development

    Valve Lowers Barrier to Entry for SteamVR Tracking Development

    Valve announced tonight that they are nixing the requirement to attend a $3,000 training course for their SteamVR Tracking solution.
    After working with numerous third parties and updating the tools, Valve is opening more direct access to the technology and course work, available free of charge in English and Chinese. The full, in person training courses are still available for those interested. In addition, SteamVR base stations will be available from Valve later this year. SteamVR Tracking was first made available to third parties in August of last year, and over 500 companies have signed up. Developed in-house at Valve, SteamVR Track

  • Speedrunner Distortion2 Completes Nioh in Just Over an Hour and a Half

    Speedrunner Distortion2 Completes Nioh in Just Over an Hour and a Half

    Speedruns for Nioh have been underway roughly a day or two after the game was released. The game has proven especially popular with runners that favor games like the Dark Souls franchise and Bloodborne. Speedrunner Distortion2 is no stranger to either of those games, often trading world records with his fellow runners over at Speedsouls. Distortion2 is the "current" world record holder (as of February 21, 2017) in Nioh with a time for doing all main missions of 1:36:51. Due to how new the game is, it is very likely that this record will come and go many times over by a variety of runners in the days, weeks, and ...

    Persona 5 - Your Invitation to the Velvet Room is Here

    I don't pretend to know the first thing about the Persona series. I'm not going to pretend to know anything about this new Persona 5 trailer and The Velvet Room. I'm just going to let the press release and trailer speak for themselves.
    Sometimes when the protagonist of Persona 5 goes to sleep, he doesn't dream like a normal Japanese high-schooler. Oh no. He gets transported to a place that exists between dream and reality, mind and matter. A place where fate has made it look like a prison. A place where sacrifice creates power, and where a familiar face will assist the leader of the Phantom Thieves in reaching his full potential. Get ready

  • Case Dismissed in Legal Battle Between Jim Sterling and James Romine of Digital Homicide

    It's a tale as old as time. Terrible game developer (James Romine of Digital Homicide) makes some asset flip games on Steam to score a quick buck. A game journalist (Jim Sterling) calls them out on their terribleness. Game developer gets mad for the truth hitting a large audience.

Game developer then ups that amount to $15 million for assault, libel, and slander.

    Game developer then attempts to sue 100 Steam users for $18 million. Game developer chooses to represent himself in all of these...
