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...

  • Notable Professional Counter-Strike Players VAC Banned Including Epsilon's Sf and Titan's KQLY

    A number of fairly notable professional Counter-Strike players have been hit by a recent wave of VAC bans this past week. This includes Sf from team Epsilon and Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian from Titan. The supposed creator of the cheat used by all of them, nero, was also banned yesterday.

    This all kicked off when a player named smn admitted to hacking in an article posted earlier this month at HLTV.org. In his statement, smn mentioned about how the cheat being used was available in the "cloud" and that it was possible to use the cheat even at LAN events without being detected. The cheat in question allegedly provided a bit of aim assistance with the 8th and 12 shots...

  • New Bloodborne Weapon and Hunter Revealed, New Personalized Ruins Teased

    New Bloodborne Weapon and Hunter Revealed, New Personalized Ruins Teased

    The latest update for Bloodborne comes courtesy of the PlayStation Blog today. In this latest reveal, we not only get a look at a new hunter, Gyula, whom you may run into while exploring the old part of the city of Yharnam.

    Now I would like to introduce Gyula, an old veteran hunter who is said to possess amazing skill. No one has seen him in many years, since he ventured into the old part of Yharnam, deserted and burned to the ground after the plague of the beast took its toll there long ago. You just may run into Gyula when you venture into the old part of the city.
    Also revealed were some details about Cainhurst castle, some of the enemies you'll encounter, and a look ...

  • Activision Claims Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the Biggest Entertainment Launch of 2014

    Activision busted out the PR machine today and made the bold claim that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the "biggest entertainment launch of the year." Yes, that once again means they did better than other game releases, movies, music, and books for 2014.

    Of course, that isn't terribly hard to do when the starting price for a game is far and above the starting price of a movie, a music album, or a book. Moving on... Activision also noted that thanks to the big sales of Advanced Warfare, the Call of Duty franchise has surpassed $10 billion in sales since 2003.

  • Valve Updates Developer Rules for Steam Early Access

    Valve Updates Developer Rules for Steam Early Access

    Recently, several developers have confirmed that Valve sent out some new guidelines for placing games on Steam's Early Access program. The updated documentation includes some new rules and guidelines as Valve further attempts to define what "Early Access" really means. The rules seem to be quite straightforward. Developers must specifically say that their games are "Early Access" when sending out keys on their site or at through services like the Humble Bundle. Developers are also no longer allowed to make "specific promises about future events" such as a game's launch or when a new feature will be added. They also note that Ea...

  • There Will Be Another Beta for The Crew on November 25

    There Will Be Another Beta for The Crew on November 25

    Ubisoft is going to offer up players yet another opportunity to test drive a beta for The Crew prior to the game's planned December release. This is an open beta and will run from November 25-27 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The open beta will include the East Coast and Midwest regions from the map of the United States. I believe that means you can actually do missions up through these two regions while still exploring the rest in free roam. It will grant access to Street cars and Dirt cars for this latest go around. The full game is slated for release on December 2, so let's hope that there aren't any m...
