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...

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam.

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...

  • Activision Forces Orion Off Steam Following DMCA Request Over Stolen Assets

    Activision Forces Orion Off Steam Following DMCA Request Over Stolen Assets

    Looks like Spiral Game Studios... Sorry, Trek Industries is in some hot water once again. This time, Activision is going after the studio with a DMCA takedown request. Activision says that Spiral's latest game, The Orion Project (AKA: Orion), uses stolen assets from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

    As such, it seems as though the game has been pulled from Steam until this is resolved. That is, at least, what Spiral is telling the public.

    Trek Industries' David Prassel issued the following statement to the Orion: Prelude Steam page just a few short hours ago. Prelude is the game that actually "came out" from the studio and also had its fair share of controversy including the use of stolen assets and poor treatment of employees. They have used stolen assets for the Orion: Prelude...

    Rich Get Richer - Twitch Adds Microtransactions to Partner Chat

    Starting today, Twitch is rolling out a test of its new microtransaction system that they call Cheering. Cheering allows the chat in partnered streams to "cheer" for a favorite moment during a stream. Cheering allows the chat to donate any number of Cheer Bits to the streamer.

    These bits equate to a monetary donation made for the streamer in lieu (or in addition to) the usual support of subscribing or donating directly.
