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...

  • Injustice 2 Promo Poster Leaks

    Injustice 2 Promo Poster Leaks

    Another minute, another leak. This time it was for Injustice 2. Adorned with the tagline of "Every battle defines you," the poster shows Batman facing off against The Flash.

    The poster seems to originally come from some GameStop employee that sent it along to Polygon. According to a letter sent to GameStop managers, these posters will be given out to those who pre-order the game. As of right now, not much is known about the game except that it seems to be coming for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Given Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's treatment of some PC games, I wouldn't get my hopes up...

  • Leaked Watch Dogs 2 Ad Spazzes Out

    Leaked Watch Dogs 2 Ad Spazzes Out

    Looks like Twitch pulled the trigger a bit early on some new Watch Dogs 2 ads. The new ads seem to show off a weird teaser for the new game. Also according to this and other leaks, Watch Dogs 2 will be out on November 15. It will be set in San Francisco.

    Twitter user, Fobwashed (whom you may know as the guy that makes games and creates a lot of gifs for Giant Bomb), managed to snag the video ad before Twitch realized their boo-boo.
    Don't worry though, I'm expecting plenty of additional Watch Dogs 2 coverage soon. Ubisoft apparently sent Watch Dogs 2 "gifts" to various...

  • CS:GO Weapon Finish Contest Winners

    CS:GO Weapon Finish Contest Winners

    The CS:GO Weapon Finish Contest hosted by Polycount came to an end last week. The winners were revealed out of the more than 500 entries submitted to the CS:GO Workshop. The top three will have their works featured in upcoming weapon cases for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

    Here are the three winners.

    Made by Andy and DryDoctor egg, Desolate Space will be their first finish featured in CS:GO. This design applies a custom illustration to the M4A4 body. The level of detail and saturation make the design a great fit for a Classified rarity.
