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...

  • h3h3Productions Takes On the Shady World of CS:GO Gambling, TmarTn, and ProSyndicate

    h3h3Productions' latest video takes a look at the shady and sometimes illegal world of gambling, trading, and skin unlocking in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This comes hot on the heels of a lawsuit filed against Valve for "illegal gambling" in CS:GO. The lawsuit claims that Valve "knowingly allowed, supported, and/or sponsored illegal gambling by allowing millions of Americans to link their individual Steam accounts to third-party websites such as CSGO Lounge ("Lounge"), CSGO Diamonds ("Diamonds"), and OPSkins (collectively, "unnamed co-conspirators")." The suit continues on to say that "(b)ecause Valve has helped to c...

    Battlefield 1 Beta Information Coming Soon?

    It could be nothing, but I might as well just mention that the Battlefield 1 Twitter account has mentioned the beta once again.

    It's essentially saying, if you aren't an Insider yet, you should probably become one because there may very well be some news coming maybe soon about a certain Battlefield 1 beta. Actually, I think I said more in that sentence than their Tweet did. Oh well....

  • Twitch will Finally Start to Roll Out HTML5 Player in July

    Twitch will Finally Start to Roll Out HTML5 Player in July

    Twitch has been lagging well behind most every other large streaming and video site when it comes to implementing an HTML5 video player. They expected the HTML5 player to have been released earlier this year, but they seem to have had more important things to attend to.

    Fortunately, HTML5 streaming and video playback are finally starting to come this July.

    The beta will begin this July, but only for Twitch Turbo subscribers. If the beta goes well, they expect the beta access to expand to more users towards the "end of Summer." What year? No idea, but hopefully they meant Summer 2016.
    So why has it taken us so
