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...

    DirectX 12 Will Not Appear on Windows 7

    AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist, Richard Huddy, said that DirectX 12 will not be supported by Windows 7 and below. Huddy made this reveal while speaking at a PDXLAN presentation earlier this month.
    "It's a very, very popular operating system.

    "One thing that's not going to happen to it is DX12. Yup, DX12 is not coming to Windows 7."
    This comes following a brief snippet where he notes that Windows 7 is still the most popular operating system at present, occupying 52% of all Microsoft OS users. He even notes that the 52% figure is actually growing despite the availability of Windows 8.1. DirectX 12 will be built into Windows 10 when it...

    Robotoki Ditches Both Publisher Nexon and Free-to-Play Model

    The Indie studio, Robotoki, has decided to ditch their planned free-to-play model for Human Element. They now plan to release the game as a paid product in November of 2015. As a result of this move, Robotoki had to end its publishing agreement with Nexon. They have also, unfortunately, laid off a portion of its staff as a result of this change.

    The Founder of Robotoki, Robert Bowling, issued a statement on this move.
    "As the game evolved we realized that the elements that make Human Element the most fun would be hindered by keeping it a free-to-play experience. "Therefore, we made the decision to switch to a premium experience for our pla

  • Intel Resumes Advertising on Gamasutra Much to the Dismay of GamerGate

    Intel Resumes Advertising on Gamasutra Much to the Dismay of GamerGate

    Intel has gone back on its rather rash decision to pull advertising from the game industry site, Gamasutra. They resumed advertising about a day ago and even noted the importance of the site's audience to its own community. Intel had initially pulled advertising from Gamasutra following pressure from one of the many spam mail campaigns by Gamergate supporters. This is where they sent multiple emails (usually more than one from the same person, or many from a number of fake accounts they set up) to Intel to try painting Gamasutra in a bad light. This was all due to Gamasutra publicly posting articles that Gamergate did not agree with. However, after more sensi...
