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...

  • Hands-On: Black Desert Online - Gameplay Video from North American Alpha Test

    I was recently given the opportunity to try out the closed alpha test for Black Desert Online as it begins to make its way to Western markets. The MMORPG is super popular throughout Korea, offering up some incredible looking visuals, in-depth character customization, and a unique combat system. I really wish I had more time to spend on the game than what I was able to. There seems to be a depth here that I only scratched the surface of. However, the below video should give the most basic overview of the game. It includes a look at the character customization, a look at the various menus and options within the game, a look at some of the early implementations of the ques...

    The 700 Club Tackles Undertale or Ignorant People Talk About Games Again

    The 700 Club tackled a viewer question. A parent found "demonic images" on her daughter's phone and is concerned. She asks the 700 Club how they can help their daughter "not be attracted to such demonic things."

    The "demonic images" were of a skeleton from the popular game Undertale. Undertale is a unique RPG that rewards pacifism and punishes those who find violent solutions. But hey, it's the 700 Club so...

  • Fallout 4 PC Ultra Screenshots

    Fallout 4 PC Ultra Screenshots

    The following Fallout 4 screenshots are reportedly from the PC version of the game running on the "Ultra" settings. As I don't have the game in front of me, I do not know what all is enabled with the "Ultra" settings.

    These screenshots come courtesy of NeoGAF user, RoboPlato. He says that they are from a machine running an i7 CPU and a GTX 970. I have no way to actually verify any of the claims made here, so just enjoy these screenshots of Fallout 4.

  • 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.
