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...

    Here is Target's 2015 Black Friday Ad

    The Black Friday ad for Target "leaked" today all over the Internet. You can see what you'll be making a mad dash to grab come that fateful Friday morning.


    You can find the full ad here.

    Looks like some pretty good deals there on games with plastic instruments. The $15 gift card when you get something like the just released Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 or Halo 5 is also a pretty good deal. $250 for a Wii U is also a pretty good deal if you've been sitting on that fence for a while....

    Life is Strange Season 2 Confirmed

  • Man Kicked Out of Store After Caught Jerking Off to PlayStation 4 Consoles

    Man Kicked Out of Store After Caught Jerking Off to PlayStation 4 Consoles

    Sony's marketing sure has gotten weird.

    An unidentified man was kicked out of an electronics store after he was caught pleasuring himself in front of some PlayStation 4 consoles sitting on a shelf. The man was caught on closed-circuit TV cameras stopping in front of the consoles, dropping his pants, and going to town. This was within just a few feet of two customers.
    At first the two other men do not notice the Playstation pervert, but soon back away after realising he's using the wrong joystick. The men walk away to tell the store manager, who arrives seconds later to throw the masturbating man out. He quickly does up his trousers an

  • 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...

    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....
