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 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...

    Treyarch Apologizes for Stupid Twitter PR Blunder

    A couple of weeks back, the Call of Duty Twitter made a super stupid PR move when they put up fake news that, let's be honest here, was a little too real for most people's liking.

    Neither Treyarch nor Activision ever made public apologies for the big PR blunder. However, Treyarch's Jason Blundell did say that he was "personally very sorry" about the entire mess.

  • Entire Black Ops 3 Campaign Unlocked from the Start

    Entire Black Ops 3 Campaign Unlocked from the Start

    Hate linear progression through your games? Good news if you're looking forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 then, because the entire campaign will be unlocked from the start. Say whaaaat? You heard me!

    This news comes courtesy of a Eurogamer interview with Jason Blundell, the Director of Campaign for Black Ops 3.
    "It gives them the flexibility to consume the content how they want," Blundell said. "The unlocking level system is an archaic mentality we've had since we did bedroom development back in the day - you do this, then go on to the next one. "Consumers and game players in general are far more mature these days. There are so many things vyin

    Gary Oldman, Mark Hamil, and More Headline Star Citizen's Story Mode Cast

    As part of the CitizenCon 2015 event, a new trailer was released for Star Citizen's Squadron 42 single player campaign. The trailer, seen below, features a virtual Gary Oldman giving a powerful speech in front of an audience.
