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...

    Nintendo Switch

    Every time a new piece of kit is in the pipeline, then the rumours and hype, specs and 'leaked' photos hit our screens as the excitement builds.

    This has been the case repeatedly and something that we have come to accept and even enjoy. Some might ask "why all of the excitement?" That question is pretty easy to answer when you take time to consider how much we rely on our Smartphones, laptops, consoles, tablets and all the other electronic innovations we can enjoy.

    Browsing the internet, playing on games like mobile bingo sites, keeping up with family and friends on social media sites plus a whole host of other useful, entertaining and enjoyable tasks are at our fingertips and only one touch away. March sees the la...

    CS:GO Player Uses Exploit to Spam Chat and Avoid Kicks

    Reddit has made the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community aware of a player (or players) that has been going around to servers, spamming chat, and avoiding being kicked.

    The user is on some sort of crusade to make Valve aware of cheaters in CS:GO by going about it in one of the most ass-backwards ways possible. All that Valve has done so far is provide a small solution to mitigate the exploit that the user is making use of. In the longer term Valve is "working on a solution" but they do not yet have an ETA on when that full fix will be deployed. The user has been going around and spamming walls of text in chat throug...

  • Blizzard will Drop Windows XP and Vista Support Later this Year

    Blizzard will Drop Windows XP and Vista Support Later this Year

    Later this year, Blizzard will drop support for Windows XP and Windows Vista. The announcement came via a short Battle.net announcement.
    Starting later this year, we will begin the process of ending support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively, but since a decent portion of our audience was still using them at the time, we continued supporting them. However, there have been three major Windows releases since Vista, and at this point, the

    Nintendo Brings the Hammer Down on Switch Thieves

    You may have seen some people claiming to already have a Nintendo Switch in their possession. Many of these people are probably media outlets but a few of them are not.

    It turns out that some undisclosed number of Switch units were stolen by a distributor of the hardware located within the United States. Nintendo didn't let that slip by, not by a long shot.
    "Earlier this week, individuals claimed to prematurely purchase a small number of Nintendo Switch systems from an unspecified retailer. Nintendo has determined these units were stolen in an isolated incident by employees of a U.S. distributor, with one system being illegally

    Portal Writer Erik Wolpaw Leaves Valve

    Another amazing talent parted ways with Valve today. Erik Wolpaw, the writer best known for his work on the Portal games, both of the Half-Life 2 episodes, and Old Man Murray, has officially left Valve.

    Wolpaw was also a co-writer for Left 4 Dead. Prior to his work at Valve, Wolpaw helped to write Psychonauts with Double Fine Productions. Back in 2004, Wolpaw was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and planned to quit Valve as he wouldn't be able to fulfill his duties due to a worsening condition. Gabe Newell surprised Wolpaw by saying that his job was to "get better" and sent Wolpaw on extended leave with pay in order to recover...
