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.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

  • New Code Vein Trailer Focuses on Executioner Boss

    New Code Vein Trailer Focuses on Executioner Boss

    This is your only spoiler warning.

    A new trailer for Code Vein came out a little bit ago today. This new trailer, courtesy of Bandai Namco, focuses on yet another boss. It joins the trailer released last month that also provided a look at one of the Code Vein bosses.

    Today's video focuses on the Invading Executioner. She makes use of a big scythe for quick attacks. The Invading Executioner also makes use of water for some area-of-effect attacks, in addition to being used in order to close the distance between herself and you, the player.

    Code Vein will be...

  • Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    This seems unnecessary.

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a battle royale game that came out in 2017 as an Early Access title. In all this time, nobody once seriously questioned why 100 people were jumping out of an airplane to murder each other in remote locations. Apparently, somebody at PUBG Corp. finally raised that question because the game is getting a backstory for its upcoming fourth season.

    It is every bit as unnecessary as you are probably imagining it to be. An official "Season 4 Cinematic Trailer" for PUBG opens with a shot of a boy. This boy is...

  • Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    No other changes mentioned.

    Nintendo revealed that they are releasing an updated version of their regular Nintendo Switch soon. The only mentioned differences are the improved battery life when compared to the original model of the Switch. That is it. There are no other differences mentioned.

    The good news is that the battery life upgrades are not insignificant. At present, Nintendo says that the current Switch (HAC-001) has between 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life, depending on what you're playing. The new model (HAC-001(-01)) will have 4.5 to 9 hours of battery life....

  • Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Plus, try it free for one month.

    Back at E3, Ubisoft announced that they would soon launch their own subscription service. This service that they're calling Uplay+ would function much like EA's Access and Origin Access programs in that you will be able to pay a monthly fee to gain access to an ever growing library of old and new titles from the publisher. Really, the only major differences that I can see here is the fact that Uplay+ may not include a discount on game purchases like EA has with their Access program.

    Today, Ubisoft revealed their initial game offerings...

  • No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.

    A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

    Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally shot those rumors down but not before letting them simmer and stew for a few days following the tease....

  • Dust2 Lives on with Today's Release of Bizarre PC/VR/AR Title DUSTNET

    Dust2 Lives on with Today's Release of Bizarre PC/VR/AR Title DUSTNET

    Play Dust2 like you've never played it before.

    DUSTNET is a new multiplayer deathmatch game that simultaneously resurrects and completely reimagines Dust2. And yes, when I say "Dust2" I am very much talking about de_dust2 from Counter-Strike. Only, this isn't Counter-Strike, or is it?

    DUSTNET allows cross-platform play between those on PC, those playing in VR, and those using augmented reality (AR). Players go back to the ruins of an old server that is forever stuck on de_dust2. The game has changed. The world is a sandbox and what you can do is determined...

    Daegon Kim from PUBG's Matchmaking System Development Team provides a very lengthy and comprehensive explanation as to what the team hopes to accomplish with some of these changes. A shortened form of the post can be read below. If you'd like to see more details about...

  • Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Stop monkeying around.

    On October 29, 2019, those on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will get to pick up and purchase and play Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. This same game will also hit the PC via Steam at some point during Winter 2019.

    This was originally released for the Nintendo Wii back in 2006. Of course, back then such a thing like HD was a mere dream. Folks back then were stuck at pitiful resolutions like 480p or even 576i. Ewwww. Could you even imagine? Thankfully this HD release in 2019 will include updated graphics, control schemes fit...
