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

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...

  • Star Citizen Procedurally Generated Planets Video Demonstration

    Star Citizen Procedurally Generated Planets Video Demonstration

    The Star Citizen development team revealed some very interesting new gameplay footage today. In their latest trailer, From Pupil to Planet, we are given a glimpse as to how you can seamlessly go from the surface of a procedurally generated planet and into space.

    The following video is said to be using all in-game footage and rendered in real time.

    And just for kicks, here is a recording from a live stream that showed off the same idea but in reverse, with the ship landing on the planet. This live demonstration was apparently shown off at three different times during the live stream. ...

  • Dota 2 - The Balance of Power Update is Big

    Dota 2 - The Balance of Power Update is Big

    Look, I'm going to be honest with you here. The way this update page is structured for this Dota 2 update kind of hurts my head at 2:30 in the morning. Hell, it would hurt my head if I read it at 2:30PM. I don't know what I'm looking at here. I haven't played Dota in ages so a lot of this doesn't make much sense at all to me. What you should probably do is head on over to the update page for tonight's big Dota 2 patch. Valve is calling it "The Balance of Power Update." I'm assuming there is a lot of changes that drastically alter how the game is played that most veterans will immediately notice. If nothing els...

  • Spend $30 to Boost a Single Character to Level 25 in Destiny

    Spend $30 to Boost a Single Character to Level 25 in Destiny

    Yes, for roughly half the cost of the game itself, you can pay to boost a single character to level 25 in Destiny. Bungie and Activision, but probably mainly Activision, added a $30 character boost that will allow you to bump one of your characters immediately up to level 25. This obviously allows users to bypass a lot of the actual content in the game since the max level right now is still a lowly 40. Most fans are outraged over this, but not because it's some sort of a "pay-to-win" scheme. Instead, they're mad because it's such a terrible, horrific deal. Seriously, $30 is half the cost of the game and all you...
