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...

    GOG Prepares for Windows 10

    GOG just mentioned today how they're getting ready for the launch of Windows 10, which begins later this month. Will their games work once 10 is out? Chances are "yes" they will but they wanted to make sure that you know they're working on things just in case they don't work right at launch.
    Windows 10 is coming on July 29th and we are as ready as can be! You have been asking on our forums, and now we are here with the official word!

  • Teen Accused of Disrupting Xbox Live and PSN Last Christmas Gets Off With a Slap on the Wrist

    17-year-old Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki was found guilty of 50,700 charges that were brought against him. Kivimaki claims to have been part of the Lizard Squad group that claimed responsibility for bringing down Xbox Live and PlayStation Network this past Christmas. You would think that someone found guilty of over 50 thousand charges would come with a rather severe punishment, right? Not so if you live in Finland. The courts gave Kivimaki a two-year suspended sentence. That's essentially just giving someone some rather lenient probation. Oh, and he was ordered to fight cybercrime now instead of being the cause of it. ...

  • AMD Reportedly Halts Mantle Development

    AMD Reportedly Halts Mantle Development

    Mantle, the little API that could is apparently winding down on the development side of things. This is according to AnandTech, who in their review of the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X, says that there are no more improvements coming for Mantle.

    AMD has reportedly "thrown all of their weight behind Vulkan and DirectX 12, telling developers that future games should use those APIs and not Mantle." Vulkan is essentially the rebirth of OpenGL and was actually initially called the "next generation OpenGL initiative" at one point. Valve has thrown their support for Vulkan with Source 2. DirectX 12 is the obvious big...

  • 30 Minutes of Metal Gear Solid V Alternate E3 2015 Gameplay

    30 Minutes of Metal Gear Solid V Alternate E3 2015 Gameplay

    This past E3 (2015), Kojima and Konami showed off roughly 40 minutes of gameplay for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Afterwards, Kojima promised to show off some alternate gameplay options for the same mission. Today, he made good on his promise. Instead of Snake teaming up with Diamond Dog and the walker, he is instead teaming up this time with Quiet and D-Horse. Just these two changes along would be enough to drastically alter how the game is played but it doesn't stop there. I mean, one of those differences is that you can shoot your arm like a Nikita missile. Again, YOU CAN SHOOT YOUR BIONIC ARM LIKE A GUIDED MI...
