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...

  • Daybreak Servers Suffer DDoS Attack Following John Smedley's Angry Tweets

    Daybreak Servers Suffer DDoS Attack Following John Smedley's Angry Tweets

    Daybreak Game Company, the studio formerly known as Sony Online Entertainment, suffered a series of DDoS attacks yesterday. The attacks came shortly after their CEO, John Smedley, made a series of angry and threatening Tweets directed towards Lizard Squad and Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki following news of Kivimaki's punishment from Finnish courts. Smedley, understandably, found the punishment to be far too lenient for what Kivimaki and his associates did.

    It's easy to remember that Lizard Squad is the group that claimed responsibility for bringing down Xbox Live and PlayStation Network last year. They also brought down Smedley's plane after they made a false bomb threat. However, it goes a bit deeper than that. Smedley made a post on Reddit yesterday...

  • Ken Revealed for Street Fighter V, Fans Shocked and Outraged

    Ken Revealed for Street Fighter V, Fans Shocked and Outraged

    Look everyone, it's Street Fighter's Ken! Here he is as he appears in Street Fighter V. Surprised that Ken is in a new Street Fighter game? Yeah, neither is anybody else. What is shocking is that he now looks drastically different than what everyone is used to. Apparently, not too many people are completely sold on the new look for the old favorite.

    Ken now supposedly has a more "in-your-face" fighting style. I'm guessing this is Capcom's attempt to make him play (and looks) vastly different from Ryu. Ken's V-Trigger move is called "Heat Rush" and it powers up his special moves. His V-Skill is ...

  • John Smedley is Going After Convicted Lizard Squad Member

    John Smedley is Going After Convicted Lizard Squad Member

    John Smedley, the former CEO of Sony Online Entertainment and current CEO of Daybreak, has a small bone to pick with Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki. Kivimaki was found guilty of over 50,000 charges the other day, all of which amounted to a couple of years probation in the Finnish courts. The thing is, Kivimaki isn't really out of the woods just yet. He still has criminal cases against him awaiting judgment.

    John Smedley has a personal bone to pick with the Lizard Squad member that helped to bring down PSN and Xbox Live last year. Smedley's plane was grounded back in August 2014 after threats were made from Lizard Squad. To put it mildly, Smedley is...
