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...

  • PSN and Xbox Live Attacked as Separate Groups Claim Responsibility; Threat Diverts Flight Carrying Sony Online's President

    In case you were wondering, yes, the Internet does suck this weekend. Two separate groups are claiming responsibility for attacking both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. PlayStation Network was down for most of the early part of the day, while the attacks on Xbox Live are more recent.

    One group said that they are the ones responsible for the attacks while another has come forward and said that they are the ones responsible for the attacks and outages. It doesn't much matter who is causing trouble, because the outages continue and nobody wins. This is just the continuation in a string of DDoS attacks that have been going on now...

  • PSA: Free Weekend for Dishonored and 75% Off Sale

    PSA: Free Weekend for Dishonored and 75% Off Sale

    This weekend, you can play Dishonored for free until Sunday at 1PM. If you decide that you like the game and want to buy it, you can get the base game for 75% off or $4.99 (USD). You can then save 50% off of the DLC for a total of $14.46 plus the price of the game. Or, you can get the GOTY edition of the game which includes the game and all DLC for just $10.19.
