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...

  • Rumor: Japanese Development Studio Allegedly Kidnapped a Developer's Sister to Stop Them from Working with Nintendo

    This is an insane story that comes to us from Nintendo Life. They ran an article today that sheds some light on what game development was like in Japan some 20 years ago. Apparently, some of the big Japanese developers had big underground ties to gangsters and corrupt cops. Who knew!

    Sure, there have always been hushed whispers of shady dealings but nothing ever really concrete. That is until now thanks to a new book by John Szczepaniak called The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers Volume 2. The interview segments below come not from one individual source but different sources at different times all combined together under the catch-all pseudonym Hideo Nanashi. The first story is of...

  • Latest Patch Provides a Really Stupid Way to Bring a Certain Metal Gear Solid V Character Back

    At some point during the second act for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you end up losing a partner. Once they're gone, they're gone for good. That is unless of course you were playing on the PC and added them back by slightly modifying a file or two. If you were consoles, well that's just too damn bad.

    Konami released a new patch for The Phantom Pain recently that now provides an official, albeit really stupid, way to get aforementioned character back. I'll say it right now that I'm going to stop beating around the bush here and there will be major spoilers in the rest of this news post. Got it? Good. In the sec...
