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...

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...

  • Bungie Teases the Return of the Best Hand Cannon in Destiny

    Bungie Teases the Return of the Best Hand Cannon in Destiny


    Just moments ago, the Destiny Twitter account sent out a new teaser video for tomorrow's big Destiny 2 update. Over the past few weeks, Bungie has been giving little bits of information here and there on what is coming in tomorrow's 2.1.4 update. This includes last week's "This Week at Bungie."

    This update doesn't yet have a full changelog available with all of the changes, but some of the highlights include a buff for the Hunter's Golden Gun, buffs to damage on scout rifles, auto rifles, and sniper rifles. This is all very vague and just the tip of the changelog....

    Once Again Enter the World of Survival Horror - Resident Evil 2 is Out Now


    It's time to party like it's 1998 because today marks the release date for Resident Evil 2 remake on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Capcom has released a complete reimagining of the survival horror classic. Gone are the static cameras and PlayStation 1 era visuals. In their place is an over-the-shoulder perspective, plenty of gorey 2019-era visuals, and more puzzles than you can shake a diamond shaped key at.

    Resident Evil 2 Runs on the RE Engine, the same engine used for Resident Evil 7. True to the original release, the game features multiple scenarios for each main...

  • You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018

    You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018


    According to The NPD Group, consumers spent over $43 billion on video games throughout 2018. That marks an 18% increase over 2017 spending. There are a couple of important notes about this. This figure is for both software and hardware. It also does not take into account digital sales since the NPD cannot reliably track digital sales figures.

    The best selling title of the year was Red Dead Redemption 2. The second and third best selling titles in 2018 were Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and NBA 2K19 respectively.

    Though the best offering from Nintendo came in at the...
