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. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

  • 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."

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Signals the Start of Exclusivity on PlayStation - New Trailers Inside

    As the era of Xbox timed exclusives comes to an end for the Call of Duty franchise, so begins the era of the PlayStation exclusives. Starting this year with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Sony platforms will get all DLC and expansion packs before any other platform.

    Also shown off during Sony's conference were new trailers for both the game's multiplayer component, and the campaign that looks to feature four-player co-op. The multiplayer video is direct from Activision. The campaign video is a third party recording of tonight's stream and severely lacks in quality.

  • Shenmue 3 Kickstarter Underway

    Shenmue 3 Kickstarter Underway

    A Kickstarter for Shenmue 3 was kicked off tonight during the Sony E3 2015 press conference. Yes, Shenmue 3. Yes, a Kickstarter.

    As I type this, the funding is now up to $624,000+ out of the $2 million goal. There are 31 days left on this Kickstarter. To say that this game is going to make its goal in little to no time might be a severe understatement.

    Shenmue 3 is the true sequel to the classic open world action RPG games, Shenmue and Shenmue 2. Created for modern platforms (PC and PlayStation 4) and built in Unreal 4, Shenmue 3 will continue the legacy of Shenmue. With your help, we can #SaveShenmue and rejoin Ryo and our favorite ch
