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...

  • BioWare to Allow Running in Anthem's Fort Tarsis

    BioWare to Allow Running in Anthem's Fort Tarsis


    While Anthem has had a bit of a rough go, especially in this past weekend's VIP demo, one thing that wasn't mentioned as being changed is the unusually slow movement speed in Fort Tarsis. Thankfully, BioWare was also listening to the numerous complaints about this artificial speed restriction in the main Anthem hub and have revealed that they are changing things up for the game's full release.

    BioWare had intentionally reduced the movement speed in Fort Tarsis to make the player feel more human. This was meant to contrast the fast-paced movement players experienced when they...

  • Kingdom Hearts 3 is Now Available

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is Now Available


    The words "Kingdom Hearts 3 is now available" are ones that many fans have been waiting about 13 years to read. That day has finally come thanks to Square Enix and Disney. This marks the release of the latest and, perhaps, last release in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.



    I'm not quite sure how well newcomers to the franchise will actually handle this game. The long-running story throughout the games is ... uh... confusing to put it mildly. Maybe "convoluted" is a bit better a word? However, the game has gotten some fairly high praise, currently...

  • Destiny 2 Update 2.1.4 Includes Tons of Class Adjustments and a Special Returning Weapon


    The 2.1.4 update for Destiny 2 came out today. The update includes a number of changes to the Sandbox gameplay, with a huge focus on tuning the super abilities for nearly every class and sub-class in the game. Crucible also saw some love today with some tuning adjustments made to heavy ammo in the Competitive game types.

    This update also makes some changes to the Black Armory forges, the frequency of the Whispers event on Io, and more. Perhaps the bigger news is the fact that a new questline from the Drifter will allow players to pick up a fan-favorite weapon from the first Destiny. ...

  • Battlefield V's Latest Update Improves Panzerstorm Map, Reduces Footstep Sounds, and More

    The second part of the "Lightning Strikes" update for Battlefield V has finally arrived. With it comes a bunch of much needed improvements to the Panzerstorm map alongside some new gear, gameplay tweaks, and more.

    The first half of this Lightning Strikes update went live earlier this month. In that update, DICE upped the volume of footsteps to a very, very audible degree. Some may say that they increased it a bit too much. I am one such person. In fact, it seems as though most people thought that the footsteps of enemies were far too loud following that update, because DICE...

  • Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Summary

    Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Summary


    The VIP demo weekend for Anthem has come and gone already. It was a bit of a bumpy road that included connection woes, infinite loading screens, and broken entitlements. These are just a few of the issues players encountered this past weekend.

    It wasn't a complete bust of a weekend, but for a lot of fans and potentials it was certainly disappointing. BioWare's Head of Live Service Chad Robertson explains that while these issues were terrible, they should be fixed for next weekend's public demo. Furthermore, Robertson also goes on to say that the release version of Anthem already...

  • Metro Exodus is Timed Exclusive on Epic Games Store Until 2020 (Update Regarding Reduced Price)


    Another third-party PC game has decided to go the "timed exclusive" route when it comes to their digital market of choice. Deep Silver and 4A Games announced today that Metro Exodus will now be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store. This is despite the fact that the game has been available for pre-order on Steam for quite some time now. However, at the end of today (January 28, 2019), you will no longer be able to pre-purchase the game through Steam.

    The studios did say that all of those existing pre-orders for the game will still be honored. If you purchased...

    Dragon Ball Game - Project Z Announced Today

    Bandai Namco announced Dragon Ball Game - Project Z today. Don't worry, this is just a working title and will probably change in the months ahead of its launch later this year.

    This newly announced game, in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam will be an action-RPG that promises to deliver "the most dramatic and epic telling of the Dragon Ball Z story." The story is told through the eyes of Kakarot, or "the Saiyan better known as Goku." ...
