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...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

  • THQ Nordic Just Held a Q&A on a Site Banned for Child Exploitation

    THQ Nordic Just Held a Q&A on a Site Banned for Child Exploitation

    Since then, the company has issued an apology saying that they did not do their "proper due diligence to understand the history and the controversy of the site." They're full of shit.

    A bit earlier today, THQ Nordic's PR team of Philipp Brock and Reinhard Pollice thought it would be a grand idea to host a Q&A (otherwise known as an "Ask Me Anything" or AMA) on 8chan. For those happily unaware, 8chan has been involved in multiple instances of child abuse, child exploitation, swatting, GamerGate, white supremacy, doxxing, and more. It has been delisted from search...

  • Behind the Scenes of GTFO

    Behind the Scenes of GTFO

    A behind the scenes video for co-op action horror title GTFO just came out today. The video, created by the small team at 10 Chambers Collective, is accompanied by a bunch of new screenshots to share with you today.

  • Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar

    Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar


    A new horror game that released just six days on Steam, Devotion, has been pulled from the distribution platform. The game was pulled without warning but it wasn't done by Valve. It was pulled by the game's developer, the Taiwan based studio Red Candle Games.

    Though the game is only temporarily removed (more on that later), it was done following a rather hellish few days for the studio. The game has been relentlessly review bombed by a number of irate Chinese citizens and, quite probably, a number of Chinese based propaganda groups such as the 50 Cent Party.

    The...

  • Sales Figures for Anthem are Half Those of Andromeda in UK

    Sales Figures for Anthem are Half Those of Andromeda in UK


    As far as physical retail sales go, Anthem was the best selling game in the UK in its first week of release.

    That's the extent of the good news.

    The bad news is that it sold roughly half of the total number of units BioWare's previous title sold in its first week. That's right, Mass "My Face is Tired" Effect Andromeda outsold BioWare's latest and, er, let's just leave it at "latest."

    Digital sales for these titles are not included in these sales figures. Meaning that the number of units sold on services like Origin for PC, or the...

  • First Look at Upcoming Dead Cells DLC

    First Look at Upcoming Dead Cells DLC


    Motion Twin released a lengthy new video today that kind of goes through the history of Dead Cells development. Included in this 12 minute long video is a look at the very first iteration of Dead Cells, which apparently began life as a "really boring" multiplayer strategy game.

    From there, the video goes on to show the evolution of the game and talk about how the studio had about a year's worth of funding left before they ran out of money. Also included in the video is the first look at the upcoming DLC for Dead Cells, which fans will undoubtedly want to check out...

    Rumor Suggests Forza, Halo, or Gears of War is Coming to Nintendo Switch


    According to a new report from Jeuxvideo.com, Microsoft may bring one of their high-profile franchises to the Nintendo Switch. The problem is, they don't really state which franchise they may bring over. Right now, they currently suggest that it could be an entry from the Forza franchise, or Halo, or even Gears of War. They also don't know if it would be a port of an older title, a new title, or a port of an Xbox One title.

    It is also being suggested that Rare titles could find their way to the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps Rare Replay? So far, this is all just rumor and may not...

  • Anthem Officially Launches Today

    Anthem Officially Launches Today


    Despite the game being available now since February 15 under some circumstances, today marks the day in which Anthem has "officially" been released. While Origin Access and EA Access subscribers have already had a chance to play and, in some cases, "complete" the game, this will be the first time most players will get to dive in.

    Today's release is accompanied by the "day one" patch, which we already provided the changelog for the other day. Anthem allows you and some friends (or random people if you prefer) to assume the role of Freelancers....
