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: Konami Shuts Down Kojima Productions LA

    Rumor: Konami Shuts Down Kojima Productions LA

    A rumor from George Broussard says that Konami has shut down Kojima Productions LA. With this potential closure, some 35 jobs have just been lost.

    The rumor is just that, a rumor for right now. If true, however, this could spell disaster for any potential updates for Metal Gear Online, the competitive game mode that was recently added to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on consoles. The PC release of Metal Gear Online was (and still is as far as we're aware) slated for release on the PC early in 2016.

  • WBIE Offering Full Refunds on Batman: Arkham Knight PC Until the End of the Year

    Batman: Arkham Knight is still a near complete mess for many PC players. Even after months of being pulled so that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady could fix the initial launch woes, the past week's re-release seems to be as bad, if not worse, than it was before. As such, WBIE has issued a statement saying that those who purchased the game on PC can get a full refund on the game up through the end of the year.
    We are very sorry that many our customers continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. We worked hard to get the game to live up to the standard you deserve but understand that many of you are still experiencing

  • Following Backlash 343 Might Bring Back Splitscreen in Halo 6

    Following Backlash 343 Might Bring Back Splitscreen in Halo 6

    Following the massive blowback from the Halo community about a lack of splitscreen in Halo 5, 343 Industries may attempt to bring it back for Halo 6. Frank O'Connor made the follow remarks following the community's widespread complaints.
    "Splitscreen is fun for me too. It's not something that I object to, and we would've loved to put it in. We'll talk about it for the next game, and we'll talk about it for the future."

    Splitscreen was reportedly not a part of Halo 5 because it would not have allowed the game to run at a steady 60FPS.
