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

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...

  • Capcom Edits Butt Slap Move in Street Fighter V; Fans Complain of Censorship

    Capcom Edits Butt Slap Move in Street Fighter V; Fans Complain of Censorship

    R. Mika returns to the Street Fighter franchise after being absent since Street Fighter Alpha 3. Her original reveal for Street Fighter V featured a move where she slaps her butt alongside a finisher where she and her partner, Nadeshiko, split open the legs of the enemy while squishing them with their butts.

    Capcom decided instead to change some of the camera work and alter her move set a bit so that the butt slap is out of frame and the split move is apparently no longer in the game.

    Cammy also had a slight change made to the camera angle for her intro. They moved the camera up a bit to eliminate the unnecessary...

    Mass Effect: Andromeda N7 Day Trailer

    I will not get giddy over a new Mass Effect game. I will not get giddy during this new N7 day trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda. I will not get giddy over the fact that this trailer is narrated by Commander Shepard. I will not get giddy...

    Oh God, I'm super giddy! To those wondering, the dog tag on the left side of the ship as it zooms away from Earth says "Ryder" on it. Many already believe this is the name of the new main character....

  • Scarlett Johansson Interested in Starring in Movie Based on Zoe Quinn's Memoir

    Game developer Zoe Quinn sold the film rights to her upcoming memoir, Crash Override: How to Save the Internet From Itself, to Amy Pascal from Sony Pictures. Scarlett Johansson (among others) is allegedly already interested in portraying Quinn in the movie adaptation.
    The movie deal was based on a proposal titled Control Alt Delete, and tells the story of how Quinn, creator of such hip interactive games as Depression Quest, was targeted by a digital mob bent on upending her life when a blog post by her ex-boyfriend went viral. It sparked the widely-discussed Gamergate controversy and took a surprising turn when instead of running, she decided

    Rosario Dawson Delivered Black Ops 3 to Someone

    For some reason, Rosario Dawson along with a camera crew, delivered at least one copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to a fan that pre-ordered using Amazon Prime. Why? Who knows. Was there some sort of contest somewhere? I don't think so.

    Anyway, here are some pictures from the delivery. At least the Mt. Dew was flowing like water.

  • Overwatch "Origins Edition" Retail Release with Digital Content Dated for June 21 Release on PS4, XB1, PC

    Blizzard tossed up a splash page for Overwatch that shows three different retail versions of the game (PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One) that will soon be offered up for pre-order. The game is slated for release on June 21. How much will this retail release run you? Well, some have said that their GameStop stores are asking for $40 (USD) for this Overwatch: Origins Edition release. Others have said that they were able to pre-order for closer to $60. What's in the box? We're not sure outside of the game obviously being included. Many have speculated that Blizzard was going to offer the game with a free-to-play model in mi...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Looks Like Garbage on Xbox 360

    A comparison between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 went up today and man, the Xbox 360 version looks downright ugly at times. Look at this.

    It just gets worse from here. YouTube user, Candyland, shows off some of the visual differences between the two generations.

    It should be safe to assume that the PlayStation 3 version will look just as bad as the Xbox 360 version shown above.

    Don't forget that this is a $50 game that only includes multiplayer, has a variable framerate, and won't get many of the features that the new generation...

  • Fallout 4 Review Embargo Has Its Own Embargo

    Fallout 4 Review Embargo Has Its Own Embargo

    We heard you like embargoes, so we're putting an embargo on your embargo.

    Plan on reviewing Fallout 4? Chances are you received an email telling you that there is a review embargo in place for the game. That date is November 9 at 8AM (ET). That's all well and good, and not totally unexpected for a game release.

    What is different is the fact that announcing when your outlet will have a review going live is also under a separate embargo. That's right, you have to wait until November 6 at 10AM (PT) before you are permitted to even just say when your review coverage is going to go live. This mailing allegedly went out earlier today to outlets that are worthy enough to review Fallout 4 ahead of release....
