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.

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...

  • Review: The Sinking City (PC)

    Review: The Sinking City (PC)

    That sinking feeling.

    Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

    The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • Halo: Reach Running on a PC in 4K and 60fps Looks Fantastic

    Halo: Reach Running on a PC in 4K and 60fps Looks Fantastic

    It begins.

    The first wave of invites have gone out to a very small group of individuals selected to test Halo: Reach on the PC. Those who have been selected will have access to a single mission in Halo: Reach from today until July 1.

    When I say that it was a "small group" that was selected, I mean it. As in the vast majority of people who have signed up as a Halo Insider have not been selected. 343 Industries notes that they picked a handful of people that have "varying ranges of hardware and are using the Windows 10 operating system." They continue...

    F1 2019 Available Now

    Vrooom.

    Codemasters released F1 2019 this week, a whopping two months earlier than previous entries in the franchise would normally be released at. However, that doesn't mean this game was rushed. In fact, Codemasters says that this release has actually had the longest development cycle of any of their F1 games. F1 2019 is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Naturally, this release goes hand in hand with a launch trailer for the game.

  • Types of Slot Games

    Types of Slot Games


    Slot machines or slot games have been around for many years both offline and more recently online. They are by far the most popular game in any casino, due to the very low cost for playing, and the ability to stop playing at any time.

    There’s an infinite amount of slot games available, so covering all of them would be literally impossible. However, we can categorize them into various types, based on a number of different factors. Here are some of the most common categories for types of slot games.

  • Dr. Disrespect Unbanned from Twitch Just Two Weeks After Livestreaming in Bathroom

    Twitch rule enforcement continues to be a joke.

    Twitch has lifted the suspension on Dr. Disrespect after just two weeks into the already tame one month ban that was initially imposed on the streamer. The ban was initially handed out hours after the two-timer and his camera crew filmed a minor using a public restroom during a live E3 2019 stream.

    It was the first day of E3 when multiple thousands of viewers witnessed the incident. Guy "Dr. Disrespect" Beahm was filmed entering a restroom at the LA Convention Center where E3 is held. He walked past a number of...

  • Sony Reveals the PlayStation Plus Games for July 2019

    Sony Reveals the PlayStation Plus Games for July 2019

    Such... value.

    Sony just revealed their "free" PlayStation Plus offerings for July 2019. As has been common for the past few months now, there will be just two games offered for the month, both of which are for the PlayStation 4.

    First up, we have Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 for you football fans out there. If you like soccer, you'll probably also like this one. Next is Horizon Chase Turbo, a "love-letter to the iconic racers of the arcade's golden age."

    So far, the reaction to these planned offerings for July are tepid, at best.
