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...

  • Chun-Li Lets Her Hair Down and Ryu Loses His Shirt in New Street Fighter V Clips

    Some new gameplay clips from Street Fighter V surfaced earlier today. The clips feature footage from Ryu, Chun-Li, Cammy, and Bison. You'll notice that they have some decidedly different looks to what you usually expect from these characters.

    Ryu looks like he'd be at home in a bum fight, Chun-Li let her hair down, Bison has a bit of a biker thing going on, and I've no real idea what Cammy typically looks like but it's probably not her usual look in the video below.

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake - Details on the "Episodic" Release

    Final Fantasy VII Remake - Details on the "Episodic" Release

    Last night, word came out that Final Fantasy VII Remake was going to be an episodic release. I apologize for that wording because that specific word, episodic, was never used in the press release that was sent out. That was what I inferred from the phrasing of the mailing, perhaps wrongfully.

    Today, Square Enix and the Remake development team cleared up a few misconceptions about what they mean by "multi-part series." The information will perhaps put a few minds at ease and raise all-new questions in the process.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is Episodic

    I just received a press mailing from Square Enix that briefly talks about Final Fantasy VII Remake.
    FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience.
    That last line in particular is the most important bit. It reads as though Square Enix plans on releasing Final Fanta...

  • Rumor: Steam Leak Reveals Half Life 3, Final Fantasy X HD, Danganronpa, and Many More Games and Movies

    This past week Valve introduced the means to permanently remove any game from your Steam library. They also seemingly provided a loophole to find out the names of the appIDs that were previously unknown within the Steam database.

    A SteamDB user, Nephrite, found the means to turn unknown appIDs into known names through a help desk loophole. A while back, Valve hid the names of unannounced and unreleased games, leaving people to merely speculate as to what games were associated with the provided appIDs. However, thanks to this loophole, we now know the names for all of those previously unknown IDs. Of course, this could very well be fixed...
