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...

  • Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

    Then quickly announces this will happen again.

    If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...

    Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is Out Now

    More FF for you MMORPG fans.

    Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is out today for all of your MMORPG wants and desires. Square Enix says that thanks to this new expansion's release, the active player base for Final Fantasy XIV has hit its highest mark in the game's six year history. Wow, this game has been out for six years already? I suppose it would be closer to 9 years if Square Enix didn't completely rework most of the game and relaunch it after its abysmal 2010 debut.

    Shadowbringers brings a lot of hot new content to the table. Players will get to explore areas outside...

  • Remothered: Tormented Fathers Coming to Nintendo Switch

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers Coming to Nintendo Switch

    Watch out Resident Evil.

    Darril Arts and Stormind Games announced today that a Nintendo Switch release of Remothered: Tormented Fathers will conjure up some scares on July 26. The port of this survival horror title was done by DICO Co., Ltd. I legitimately have no idea if DICO Co. has handled any other ports, but they were mentioned by name in the press release. I assume it might be a familiar name for some of you out there. Maybe you know whether or not this is going to be a good port as a result of their work or not.

    Whatever the case may be, we won't know how good...

  • Detroit: Become Human Subs in for PES 2019 for July's PS Plus Offering

    Detroit: Become Human Subs in for PES 2019 for July's PS Plus Offering

    Sorry soccer fans.

    Sony just made an interesting change to their PlayStation Plus "free" game lineup for July 2019. About a week ago we reported on what the initial games were going to be. Initially, Sony was giving PS Plus subscribers Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Horizon Chase Zero.

    Well, it seems as though Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 is out and Detroit: Become Human is in. Horizon Chase Zero is still being offered as the second title. A reason for the swap was not made. If you don't yet know what Detroit: Become Human is, we have a bit more on it below. This...

  • Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

    No solid ETA on when they will be either.

    If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

    The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...

  • Pigeon Simulator Announced

    Pigeon Simulator Announced

    Viral hit becoming a game.

    There was apparently a short gif released in June that showed off someone playing as a pigeon. I haven't seen it but apparently those that did kind of loved the idea. I suppose that's why game developer Kevin "KevKev" Suckert announced today that he is working on a full game based on the idea of being a pigeon.

    It's called Pigeon Simulator and it will be published by Bossa Studios. You may recall Bossa from their work on Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread. If ever there was a match made in heaven, it's Bossa and Pigeon Simulator. There...

    Remedy Now Controls the Alan Wake IP

    Alan Wake teases more platforms.

    Remedy Entertainment has regained the publishing rights to the Alan Wake franchise from Microsoft.

    The development studio is currently working on Control, but they apparently found a bit of time to acquire the rights to the horror-action romp starring an author. The company told investors that they would earn €2.5 million on royalties for "previously released games" this fiscal year.

    Alan Wake was released back in 2010 as an Xbox 360 exclusive title. The game focuses on an author as he tries to survive in the fictional...

  • Planet Explorer Devs Lose Multiplayer Code in Server Crash

    Planet Explorer Devs Lose Multiplayer Code in Server Crash

    Make backups.

    Planet Explorers is an older title from the same development studio that brought us the relaxing and enjoyable My Time at Portia. Planet Explorers came out in late 2016 from Pathea Games. It is an open-world sandbox RPG. It had the usual stuff that players have come to expect from open-world sandbox games. There were survival elements, combat, building, crafting, and the sort. The game's primary focus was a Story Mode that was a-ok for those seeking that sort of a single player experience.

    However, the game also promised multiplayer and, for a time, it...
