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...

    PSA: Amazon Japan Now Ships Internationally

    Just a little heads up for you importers of the world, it seems as though Amazon.co.jp will now ship games and consoles internationally! That means that you can pick up those Japanese exclusive games that you've had your eye on for some time without having to jump through too many hoops.

You cannot get items shipped to you if they are sold by third parties through the Amazon storefront. Only items sold by Amazon directly are eligible for this new feature.

  • Gears of War 4 Details Emerge from Game Informer

    Gears of War 4 Details Emerge from Game Informer

    The April 2016 cover story for Game Informer is for none other than Gears of War 4. Of course, it wouldn't be a huge game announcement and reveal if there weren't a bevy of fresh details to go along with it, right?

    Thankfully, neoGAF user shinobi602 compiled a list of details from the Game Informer cover story. The following obviously contains some spoilers both for Gears of War 4 and for the earlier entries in the series. Consider yourselves warned.

    Valve Announces 'The Lab' for VR Experiments at GDC

    If you will be attending GDC next week in San Francisco, you may want to set aside some time to check out what Valve will be doing. The studio announced that they will debut something called "The Lab," which is a compilation of a number of VR experiments that visitors can try out.

    The Lab is "set in a pocket universe of Aperture Science" and "offers multiple ways to enjoy room-scale VR." It's probably almost a 100% guarantee that the VR hardware on display for these demos will be the HTC Vive.
