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...

  • Microsoft Claims Halo is the Star Wars of Video Games, Has That "Special Sauce"

    In an interview with GameSpot, Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg made a pretty bold and confusing claim about Halo's status in the world of gaming. Or maybe it was Halo's status in the world of movies? Perhaps it was Halo's status in the world? I'm not really sure what he was going for here.
    Does Halo 5 need to be the best-selling Halo ever? What are your expectations internally? For us, I think in many ways it feels like the most anticipated game of the year. Because Halo is something so special that people have waited years for a new Halo to come out. It's not something that happens every year [Ed. note: Greenberg w

  • Hands-on: Steam Controller General Overview Video

    Hands-on: Steam Controller General Overview Video

    Last night, I put together a short-ish overview video for using and setting up a Steam Controller. Please note that this is not a review. Official reviews are being kept until at least November 10 when the controller is officially released for everyone. The controller is still receiving regular updates from Valve. In fact, an update came out between when I recorded last night and when I finally got the video uploaded about an hour ago (as of the time of this posting).

    The video shows off basic functionality of the controller. It also shows some basic setup and configurations for games such as Portal...
