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

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...

  • 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...

  • Angry Birds Dream Blast Now Available for iOS and Android

    Angry Birds Dream Blast Now Available for iOS and Android


    Today marks the release for Rovio Entertainment's Angry Birds Dream Blast. Unlike pretty much every other entry in the Angry Birds franchise, this one is a "casual tap-to-match puzzle game." You're popping bubbles in this one.

    Do people still play Angry Birds? I assume so if they're still making new games for them, but I just haven't heard much about any of them in a while.



    "Time-to-fun?" I feel like that should be a new requirement for all of my reviews going forward. How long does it take for a game to start being fun sounds...

  • Far Cry New Dawn - New Trailer, Crafting Details, and More Gameplay Details Revealed


    A bunch of new details came out today from Ubisoft for the upcoming Far Cry New Dawn. This not-quite-a-full-fledged-follow-up to Far Cry 5 is on track for release on February 15 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    Far Cry New Dawn takes place 17 years after the rather apocalyptic ending of Far Cry 5. Hope County is once again the main area that you will play in, but it's a Hope County that has been taken over by a lot of colorful wildlife, a group of scavengers called the Highwaymen, and plenty of ruins to fight through. You play as a man named Thomas Rush, a "captain...

    Farming Simulator Dives into Esports with €250,000 League


    When you think of farming simulators, you probably think about Esports and how the two go together like peanut butter and jelly. That seems to be precisely the mindset that GIANTS Software had when they created and announced the first ever Farming Simulator League.

    This league will begin its life with 10 tournaments held throughout Europe. Each competing team will be made up of three members. As the season draws to its conclusion, the best teams will compete for the title of "Farming Simulator Champion" and €100,000 in prizes. All of the tournaments will have their...
