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

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.

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...

  • The Secret of the Phantom Program 4 for Battlefield 4 - Hidden Bow, Satellites, and More

    With the release of the Final Stand DLC for Battlefield 4 came the start of the fourth phase of the Phantom Program and the Phantom Operative Assignment. What is it? Well, unlike the previous assignments, you can't simply enter in a password on the Battlelog site.

    Oh no, this one apparently goes beyond that. Here's jackfrags to explain what is and is not know about the Phantom Program 4 so far.

    That's where things stand right now with the Phantom Operative Assignment in Battlefield 4. Yes, it's more ARG type stuff that people are working on figuring out. Until they do, content will be loc...

    Over 7 Million People Have Played Titanfall

    EA and Respawn Entertainment, through a new "feature update" video, have revealed that Titanfall has been played by over 7 million unique players.


    That means at least 7 million copies of the game have been sold to end consumers, not just shipped. I'm sure we'll see a sequel to the game in the coming years. Hopefully the sequel has a longer life than the first game did. It would have been nice to keep playing that game for more than a couple of months after its release....

    Assassin's Creed Unity Optimizations Being Tested

    Ubisoft has once again updated their Assassin's Creed Unity live blog with word that they are working on new performance optimizations for the game.
    We can tell you that we have detected a distinct discrepancy between what we observed in the pre-launch versus post-launch environment. In spite of our testing, it looks like the instruction queue is becoming overloaded and impacting performance. We have several fixes we are exploring right now and will continue to update you with our progress of what is working and how quickly we can implement these fixes in the game in the weeks ahead.
