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...

    Metal Gear Online - Classes, Maps, Modes, and More

    The Metal Gear Online site updated earlier with a ton of new information for the upcoming content release for Metal Gear Solid V.
    Game Types (Missions)
    Bounty Hunter
    Teams win if the number of enemy team tickets is reduced to zero. Killing or Fultoning an enemy reduces the enemy team tickets by one. Fultoning an enemy increases your team's ticket total by the value of the Fultoned enemy's bounty.


    Cloak and Dagger
    Attackers win by recovering the Data Disc and uploading it at the Evac Point within the time limit. Defenders win by preventing the upload. Attackers are armed with only non-lethal weapons while defenders only have lethal weapons. This is an elimination mission. Once eliminated, you cannot return to the battlefield until the next round.


    Comm Control Attackers must capture Comm Links to download confidential intel

  • GameStop Refusing to Sell Console Bundles that Include Digital Download Vouchers

    GameStop is pulling a GameStop and are going to stop carrying console bundles that include downloadable vouchers for games. This was revealed during a recent earnings call (PDF).

    Executives at GameStop revealed their plans to move away from digital bundles and instead are opting to focus on carrying "physical" bundles instead. This plan actually kicked off last month with Madden NFL 16. "But Zips, they still totally sold the Madden NFL bundles in their store!" Yes they did, John, but they were selling bundles with physical copies of the game included. How? Apparently GameStop "worked with Sony, Microsoft, and EA" to reach...

  • Apple TV to Entice Even More Casual Gamers?

    Apple TV to Entice Even More Casual Gamers?

    As you may have heard, Apple made an announcement earlier in the month that had more to do with the latest iPhone designs and upgrades. While those changes are indeed coming to their mobile lineup, they're also looking to make a proper entry in the gaming sphere.

    The new Apple TV will be available for a mere $150 (for the 32GB model) and aims to provide users with another gaming option that doesn't come from the Big 3 (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo). While some have been quick to shoot it down before it's even out there-Kotaku.com threw some serious shade-there's something that needs to be remembered here: even if Apple TV only offers simple and...

  • Five Nights at Freddy's World is an RPG, No Horror

    Five Nights at Freddy's World is an RPG, No Horror

    There's a new Five Nights at Freddy's game coming. The weird thing, is that it won't be a horror game. Instead it will be called FNAF World and will be an RPG where you form a party from the cast of characters you encountered in the other games. I... uh... sure, ok.

    Five Nights at Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon gives the details in a Steam Community update.
    Hi everyone, this is a big update! I wanted to keep my plans for a new game secret until Halloween, but while my teasers have created excitement for some people, they have created some confusion as well, mainly because people don't know if the Five Nights at Freddy's story is over or not. It's very impo
