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...

  • Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers

    Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers


    This past weekend, a little Fortnite themed event was held in Norwich. The event, called Fortnite Live, charged event-goers around $20 (USD) to enter the event that included a whopping four go-karts, a climbing wall, and areas to play Fortnite.

    From multiple accounts, the event was a rather large disaster. The various activities were severely lacking. People had to wait in line in the cold just to get in. In total, around 2,800 people attended the event in which they were mainly charged a lofty fee just to play Fortnite, a free-to-play game. Shortly after the end of the event,...

  • The Power of Loot Boxes in Games

    The Power of Loot Boxes in Games

    Is it gambling like UK online casinos or is it gaming? Loot boxes have been used by developers for the last few years and are subject to many debates. There are some who think that this system allows games to be free, and there are some who claim, they make players accustomed to gambling. In any case, it seems we can continue to discuss loot boxes for a long while. In this article, we will take a close look at the topic and talk about how this mechanics affects games and players.

    For example, an ad of NetEnt casino would be telling you about the advantages of NetEnt slots. What Are Loot Boxes?First, we need to explain what the loot boxes are. We can simply define them as digital boxes that are sold with real money in the in-game stores and contain virtual items. They have been used for quite a long time, but they became popular because of the Overwatch, developed by Blizzard. Overwatch is a buy-to-play game, but it has also loot boxes that can be pu...

  • Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released

    Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released


    The "day one patch" for Anthem has just been detailed by BioWare and EA. This is the update that will be required for players to download prior to hopping into Anthem on February 22. As far as I can see, this update has not yet been released to those playing on either EA Access or Origin Access.

    The update contains a decent list of fixes and quality of life improvements. Notably, it addresses the overly long loading times that many players have been very vocally complaining about. It also helps to address infinite loading screen issues, crash bugs, and more.

    The full list of changes can be found below. ...

    It's been one year since the release of MX vs ATV All Out from THQ Nordic and Rainbow Studios. While most teams typically don't really do much for the one year anniversary of their game, Rainbow Studios decided they didn't want to be like normal studios.

  • Review: Ultralite DT Blue Light Filtering Glasses from Eagle Eyes

    Review: Ultralite DT Blue Light Filtering Glasses from Eagle Eyes


    I spy, with my filtered eye, something that is…

    Today, we are going to be reviewing something a little bit outside of the usual. Usually, we typically just review video games or even the occasional piece of hardware for TGN, but a review for glasses? Well, it's certainly a new one for us.

    These are not any old pair of glasses though. These are the Ultralite DT from Eagle Eyes. What sets them apart from other glasses is the promise that they will protect your eyes from blue light that blasts your eyes from any number of digital screens. Eagle Eyes has a nice write-up that talks about some of the ways in which blocking out blue light can help ease the strain on your eyes. The Science of Blue Light FiltersNaturally, you don't have to take their word for it. There have been a number of articles that talk about how staring at computer screens or phones can cause added strain. The ...
