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...

  • FBI Releases Report on Investigation into GamerGate

    FBI Releases Report on Investigation into GamerGate

    Earlier today, the FBI released their report on the investigation into GamerGate. If nothing else, this should remove any remaining doubt that GamerGate began as a harassment campaign chiefly against women in the gaming industry, then against women in general, and then eventually against pretty much anybody that wasn't a straight, white male (though even they weren't excluded). The report is 173 pages long and contains all matter of threats, ranging from emails to tweets. It also includes various correspondence between the victims and the investigators. There is also a lot of information that has been redacted from public view. Some examples can be seen be...

    Ashley Judd Slams Game Industry for Profiting Off of GamerGate and Misogyny

    As part of a recent TED Talk about the abuse of women online, actor Ashley Judd dedicated a segment of her 15 minute talk towards the hypocrisy of the gaming industry. She began by talking about the abuse she endures every day online simply for being a woman. She explained the effects the abuse has had on her and offered up insight on the trauma many women endure every day online. Judd says that she has periodically been the target of a "cyber mob" that has sent her countless rape and death threats. It has gotten to the point where she had to get someone to go through and scrub her feed for her so she doesn't have to read it herself. This is when she ...
