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...

  • Blizzard Offering Free Copies of Mists of Pandaria to Entice Players to Return to World of Warcraft

    Apparently, Blizzard is trying to pull some old players back to World of Warcraft by giving them a free copy of the latest expansion for the game, Mists of Pandaria. I just received this in my own email about 30 minutes ago now.


    I verified it was legit by manually going to my Blizzard account and seeing that, sure enough, Mists of Pandaria was listed next to my game. All I have to do is re-subscribe to the MMO that I haven't played in three years.

    If you need more proof, others have run into the same sort of deal these past few days and it has been verified by a Blizzard support member on the Battle.net forums.
    Until this promotion,

    Watch Over 20 Minutes of Until Dawn Gameplay

    I hope you like your horror games like you like your horror movies: Scary, cheesy, and with "B Movie" caliber written all over it. The demo out of gamescom 2014 actually looks really good and if you love those kind of films, you will probably end up loving this. It also seems like fans of David Cage games will find some enjoyment in this given the gameplay mechanics at work.


    This game will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4....

  • Microsoft Looking to Sell Xbox Entertainment Studios to Warner Bros.

    Microsoft Looking to Sell Xbox Entertainment Studios to Warner Bros.

    Last month, Microsoft allegedly closed down Xbox Entertainment Studios. Today, it looks like they are looking towards Warner Bros. to have them buy out their video production division. This is according to information provided to Hollywood Reporter.
    Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that XES is shopping for a new home and has had preliminary talks with Warner Bros. about possibly becoming a stand-alone entity based at the studio. In that scenario, Warners would look to merge XES with Machinima, the video game-centric YouTube network in which it owns a stake. A Warner Bros. spokeswoman said that the studio

    This is How P.T. Looks with Adjusted Levels

    A Reddit user adjusted the light and color levels from a P.T. screenshot. It doesn't look half bad when you can easily see the environment. Some say that it looks a bit like a photograph.


    Keep in mind that Kojima stated that he and his team had to lower the visual quality of the game to make it appear more "Indie." Also keep in mind that P.T. was a teaser for the new Silent Hills game coming out and that the teaser does not indicate how the final game will look or play....
