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.

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...

  • Bungie Postpones Trials of Osiris to Address Game Breaking Exploit; King's Fall Hard Mode Dated

    This past week, an exploit was discovered that gave unlimited Super to a specific build of the Hunter class. This effectively broke both PvE and, more importantly, PvP competition. Tomorrow, the popular Trials of Osiris PvP mode was slated to make a return to the game for Year 2.

    Unfortunately, due to this exploit there will not be any Trials of Osiris tomorrow. Bungie has instead decided to delay the PvP mode's return until they can adequately fix the exploit.

  • Nvidia will Soon Lock Game Ready Drivers Behind GeForce Experience Registration

    In what can only be called a "really stupid move" by everybody outside of Nvidia, the company is soon going to lock their ever popular Game Ready Drivers behind a GeForce Experience registration. Right now, all it takes to download any of Nvidia's drivers is to head over to their site, select your preferred update path (WHQL, Beta, etc.), select your operating system and bam, new drivers are yours to install as you wish. Alternatively, fans can also simply use the optional GeForce Experience desktop program to download the latest drivers as they're available.

    According to PC World, a switch will happen around mid-December that will force people to...

  • Star Wars Battlefront Won't Have Voice Chat on Any Platform

    Star Wars Battlefront Won't Have Voice Chat on Any Platform

    It's 20-freaking-15 and a multiplayer focused title will ship without built-in voice communication on any of its available platforms. That game is none other than Star Wars Battlefront.

    We already knew that the game didn't have voice chat during the beta, but most of us probably said that it's reasonable because it's a beta! Turns out the final game won't have voice chat either. EA confirmed this news on Twitter.
    The only way you'll be able to chat with others in your game is to form a private party with them and use either the system chat on Xbox Live or the one built into PlayStation...
