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 announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019.

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...

    Miitomo is Out on Android and iOS, Marks First Mobile Game from Nintendo

    Miitomo, some weird mobile game by Nintendo that is a bit like a Mii version of The Sims and social media was released today on Android and iOS mobile devices. This is Nintendo's first release on modern smartphones. You can purchase clothes using in-game currency. This currency can be accumulated by interacting with the Miis of friends and completing various challenges and daily objectives. There is some weird Plinko style minigame that will unlock special clothing items.

    The Division April Update Details - Incursions, Gear Sets, Trading, and More

    Ubisoft Massive just held their latest information stream today for the future of The Division. Today's topic was all about the first major update coming to the game that will add the first Incursion, gear sets, and plenty more.

There is no weekly timer on running through the Incursion but you will get the best reward the first time you complete it. Wh...

  • Live-Action Doom Trailer

    Live-Action Doom Trailer

    A live-action Doom trailer was released today. It's got a pretty Metal soundtrack going on and it shows off some of the demons of Hell our fearless marine pal will encounter.

    In addition to this new trailer comes a reminder that the Doom multiplayer beta kicks off tonight at like 10PM (ET). I'm pretty sure that's what the email told me. The beta will be on the PC, PS4, and XB1 for those that registered for it back when Wolfenstein: The New Order came out. The beta runs until April 3. The full game is out May 13.

  • Final Fantasy XV Release Date Set for September 30 with Demo Available Tomorrow

    Prior to the announcement of Final Fantasy XV's release date, which is coincidentally taking place right now, GameSpot let slip that the release date for the game is September 30. In addition, a demo is slated to arrive either late tonight or tomorrow.

    GameSpot put up a video earlier today well ahead of the announcement window. The video has since been pulled but a mirror can be found right here.


    The image below (source via NeoGAF) shows both of these pieces of information. Of course, this could just be a red herring but we'll know for sure in just a few short moments. ...

    PS4K Rumors Suggest Targeted Games, Double GPU Power, and More

    A verified insider revealed some rather unsettling news today concerning the rumored "PS4K" that has been floating around these past couple of weeks. The PS4K has been a rumored hardware upgrade for the PlayStation 4 that includes a more powerful GPU and other improvements for 4K experiences. It was largely a rumor but it's one that has been mentioned by numerous sources around the web and it seems to have a significant weight behind it. Today, an insider on NeoGAF revealed what he knows about the PS4K, including the power bump of the GPU and near exclusive PS4K games. According to the user, OsirisBlack, the idea is to price the PS4K at $399.99 (USD). There were apparently plans t...
