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...

  • In the World of Gaming, Leonard Nimoy was More than Just the Civilization IV Narrator

    By now, most of you have probably already saw that actor Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83. We all knew him as Spock from Star Trek or from his dozens of other roles he has assumed for the past roughly seven decades. However, many of us probably also knew him as the narrator for Civilization IV.

    His familiar voice would read a line or two any time a new technology was discovered. Even after countless hours with the game, hearing those words of wisdom read was always comforting and always signified progress was being made. What you may not know is that he also had a hand in a number of other games throughout the years. Most recently in 2012, Ni...

  • Sony Somehow Erased the Complete List of PlayStation 4 Anniversary Edition Winners

    Sony has, somehow, completely erased the list of all 123 winners of their PlayStation 4 Anniversary contest they held in Japan. Let's just back it up a moment here (something Sony didn't do, hey-oh!). This contest made it so that anybody that purchased a PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, or PlayStation TV between December and January were eligible to receive a calendar with a unique code. Of all of those people, Sony selected 123 codes as the winners of the limited edition PlayStation 4 Anniversary Edition console. That's nothing to really sneeze at given that only 12,300 of those consoles exist in the world. But, the winners ar...
