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.

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...

  • Stephen Colbert to Tackle GamerGate Tonight

    Stephen Colbert to Tackle GamerGate Tonight

    On tonight's episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert is setting his sights on GamerGate.


    This was first teased by a Twitter post from Anita Sarkeesian in which she posted a picture of her sitting behind the desk of the Colbert Report.

    Supporters of GamerGate have somehow already fooled themselves into thinking this is a good thing, that Anita is only there because she's a "professional victim." They are also apparently under the belief that just because they haven't been able to answer factual responses to anything that everyone else must be just as stupid.


    It will certainly be quite inter...

  • YouTube Finally Delivering on 60fps Promise

    YouTube Finally Delivering on 60fps Promise

    It appears as though YouTube is finally starting to deliver on the promise it made back in June that will allow video creators the ability to upload and play videos at 60 frames per second. Some new videos uploaded today now play back at a wonderful 60fps, a huge step up to the 29.97fps playback for every single other video. There are a couple of catches, however. First, you need to use Chrome. This is presumably because of Chrome's much better support for HTML5 video playback. Secondly, you need to watch the videos at resolutions at, or higher, than 720p. If you have no trouble with either of those requirements, enjoy a few sample videos at 60fps!...

  • GameStop to be Closed on Thanksgiving

    GameStop to be Closed on Thanksgiving

    I'm not really sure if this is news. Is this news? I don't even know anymore since I can't even remember the last time I set foot inside a GameStop. However, it seems as though it's worth at least mentioning that all 6,600 GameStop stores will be closed on Thanksgiving. They're doing this out of "respect of (their) store associates."

    Scream Fortress 2014 will include the return of magic spells, lakes of urine-scented water (huh?), at least six new achievements, and bumper cars. Yes, bumper cars.


    This will presumably kick off a bit later today....

  • The Evil Within Review

    The Evil Within Review

    The mediocrity within.
    Over the course of the lengthy, ill-paced campaign, one thing really stuck out for The Evil Within. It's not really a horror game. Yes, there are areas where you are often subjected to intense imagery and situations but they are more shocking than anything else. To put it simply, the game is more like the Saw film franchise than what we have come to expect from a good survival horror game.

    You may think to yourself that perhaps this will be a killer action title then since the horror part is a bit of a letdown. I have some bad news for you there as well. Thanks to the game insisting that you play at a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, actually being able to see enough of the environment around you becomes an exercise in frustration. The game almost forces you to take your time in areas, quickly killing off whatever hopes you had of this being a great action title. It instead turns into repeated situations where you slow down, take your time, and play the game almost like a stealth run of The Last of Us but without the coherent story and great pacing. If you are playing on PC, as I did, ther...
