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...

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force is Not the Metroid Game You Were Hoping For

    Nintendo revealed a new Metroid game today! It's even a new Metroid Prime game! The uh... the problem is, well... It's not exactly what you were hoping for.

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force allows you and three other friends to co-op a number of different missions set in the Metroid universe. You hop into specialized mechs to kill foes and complete objectives. If you get bored of that, you can compete in a game of Blast Ball.

    • Up to 4 players take on a variety of co-op missions in this first-person, sci-fi shooter set in the Metroid universe
    • Work together as a team to clear out enemy-infested bases and complete objective-based

  • Latest Destiny ViDoc Finally Details What is Coming in The Taken King Expansion

    Sure, Destiny: The Taken King was first rumored and then finally revealed yesterday at E3. Sure, there's been a lot of talk about it but nobody really knew just what sort of content would be included in the expansion. Today, Bungie released the latest ViDoc for said expansion and actually provided some fresh details on what fans can look forward to. First and foremost, each class will finally get their third ability! That means for Titans, you get a Solar ability. This gives you a hammer that you can beat people with. Hunters get their Void ability that manifests itself as a bow and arrow that lets you pin targets in place. Warlocks get their Arc ability, allowing them to shoot lightning out of their hands. It's a bit more nuanced than that, but that's what the ViDoc is he...

    In about 30 minutes (from the time of this posting), Nintendo will hit play on their pre-recorded video. That's right, it's time for the Nintendo Digital Event 2015 for E3 2015.

  • Hitman Announced by Square Enix and Io-Interactive

    Hitman Announced by Square Enix and Io-Interactive

    On December 8, Hitman will be released on the PlayStation 4. Is it exclusive to the platform? I'm not sure, but so far the trailer only shows the "PS4" logo on it and it was revealed during Sony's E3 event tonight. I'm sure we'll know for sure tomorrow during Square Enix's E3 2015 event, but until then, just enjoy the new trailer. Oh, and it is simply called "Hitman."
