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...

    More Battlefield 4 May be Coming as Hints Point Towards a Sixth DLC

    So, you've played hours of the Final Stand DLC for Battlefield 4 and you picked up the Phantom Bow already. What's left? Well, it could very well be that there is more DLC coming for the game.

    First up, we have an interesting Tweet from a Battlefield 4 developer that points to the content ride not being over just yet.

    Another developer, David Sirland, has been rather coy when talking about the possibility of a sixth DLC to fans.

    He also notes that there will be something revealed after Battlefest comes to a conclusion in about two weeks.

  • Sony to Give Early Vita Customers a Small Refund Over Deceptive Ads

    Sony to Give Early Vita Customers a Small Refund Over Deceptive Ads

    The FTC and Sony have come to a settlement over claims that Sony has not delivered on at least one of its promises during the early days of PlayStation Vita advertising. According to the early ads, Sony claimed that consumers could keep playing their PlayStation 3 titles on their Vita with "Cross Platform Gaming." Sony claimed that you could play a game on the PS3, pause it, and then pick up where you left off on your Vita. Well, you couldn't really do that except with some games that were designed with that functionality in mind. Even more, there are claims that Sony's promise of this Cross Platform Gaming led some to purchase the more expensive 3G version of the Vita in order to play the...

  • Ubisoft Finds a Loophole in Their "No More Post-Release Embargoes" for Reviews

    Remember when media outlets were upset with Ubisoft because a review embargo time was set for 12 hours after the game was actually released to the public? Remember how Ubisoft said they were totally committed to fixing that rather severe lack of thought and respect for the media and their fans?

    Well, they're sticking to their word with reviews for The Crew! There will not be a post-release embargo in place! Instead, Ubisoft has no embargo time since it seems as though they aren't giving out advance copies of the game to the media for review purposes. So, there could be a review up at midnight but that's assuming you're a-okay...
