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...

  • Battlefield Hardline Trial Available Now on EA Access

    Battlefield Hardline Trial Available Now on EA Access

    If you own an Xbox One and pay for the EA Access subscription, you can play a 10 hour long trial of the full Battlefield Hardline offering. I believe that this allows for players to access all of the game's multiplayer offerings and only the start of the single player campaign.

    The download is a bit over 45GB, but if you were planning on buying the game already and have EA Access, you may as well get some time in now. There is (obviously) no system like this for the PC or PlayStation consoles.

  • Battlefield Hardline Writer Had to Remove Dialogue to Dehumanize the Bad Guys

    In speaking with Polygon, a Battlefield Hardline writer, Rob Auten, mentioned how they actually had to remove lines of dialogue from the game in order for the "bad guys (to feel) like bad guys."
    Writer Rob Auten told me that one of the difficulties he had with this game was creating thugs who were engaging enough to seem realistic, but not so engaging that the player might feel guilty about shooting them. "I wrote one about this guy getting back together with his ex-girlfriend," Auten explained. "Someone on the team pointed out that 'hey idiot, this is someone you are about to shoot in the head, not deliver flowers to,' so we decided,

    Sony Opens the PlayStation Gear Store

    Similar to how many studios have their own storefronts to sell you various articles of clothing and "gear" so does PlayStation now. That's right, you can now hit up the PlayStation Gear Store to purchase a number of items from many of Sony's first party offerings.


    Do you want a PlayStation themed mug? It's yours. What about a t-shirt from The Order: 1886? Maybe you'd like a POWERS branded messenger bag instead. They have a bunch of different things there, most of which you may feel is overpriced, but that comes with the territory....
