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...

  • Crackdown 3 on PC Locked to 30FPS in Co-op

    Crackdown 3 on PC Locked to 30FPS in Co-op


    If you plan on playing through Crackdown 3 in co-op, it may be worth knowing that the game will be locked to 30FPS. Yes, even on PC.

    To be fair to the Xbox One versions of the game, it's capped at 30FPS as it is, even when playing alone. However, the PC version has the ability to play with much higher framerates, including uncapped if you so desire. That is, unless you're playing co-op on the PC.

    A number of Reddit users have found out that the 30FPS cap comes into play whether or not you are playing PC to PC or PC to Xbox.

    It should also be noted...

    Jade Revealed for Mortal Kombat 11


    Yesterday, WBIE and NetherRealm revealed that Jade is another fighter that is included with Mortal Kombat 11 at release. Jade is essentially a zombie in Mortal Kombat 11, having been resurrected "by an evil sorcerer." She used to be a master assassin, known for wearing green clothing.

  • Critical Consensus: Crackdown 3, Far Cry New Dawn, Jump Force, and Metro Exodus


    Tomorrow is a massive release day for games. For some reason, publishers and developers decided that people who play video games would need a lot of joy in their lives come February 15. I simply cannot fathom why.

    Needless to say, there are four major titles being released tomorrow and the reviews for all of them are now in. Well, almost all of them. Though Anthem is also coming out tomorrow, it is only being released for those that have EA Access, Origin Access, or Origin Access Premier. Reviews for that game have not gone live yet. We'll go through each of tomorrow's releases...

  • God of War Won the 22nd Annual DICE Awards

    God of War Won the 22nd Annual DICE Awards


    The headline reads that God of War won all of the 22nd annual DICE awards as if they took home every award at the show. Well, the game and the team at Sony Santa Monica kind of, almost did precisely that.

    Much like our very own and very prestigious game of the year, DICE also determined that God of War was the best game of 2018. In total, God of War won nine different awards at the show. The only other game to take home more than one award last night was Celeste, which won two awards including the Independent Game of the Year.

    The full list of winners in each...

    Civilization VI: Gathering Storm Now Available


    Civilization VI, of the Sid Meier variety, has a new expansion out today. It's called Gathering Storm, which is a good thing because this expansion is mostly about a very active planet with many environmental challenges.

    This expansion includes new Environmental Effects (they capitalized it this way), new Engineering Projects, and Consumable Resources for players to wrap their strategic minds around. This is being called the "largest ever" expansion released in the entire history of the Civilization franchise. Because in addition to the whole environmental stuff,...

    This is a nice little thing that Ubisoft is doing for The Division 2 pre-orders. If you pre-order the PC version of the game, you can get one of three free games at no extra charge. Yes, saying "free game at no extra charge" is redundant.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening Remake Announced for Nintendo Switch

    The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening Remake Announced for Nintendo Switch


    Nintendo shocked their fans today with a surprise announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch. The classic was originally released for the Game Boy over 25 years ago.

    The game is targeting a 2019 release exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. A bit more than a simple remake, this release of Links Awakening will be closer to a "re-imagining" of the original. The most obvious change is the unique visual style seen in the gameplay sections of the announcement trailer.

    I'm sure we'll have more on this one in the weeks...
