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...

    Share Play on PS4 Limited to 60 Minute Sessions

    When Share Play launches this fall on the PlayStation 4, you will be allotted a 60 minute long sessions in order to play or have someone else play your PlayStation 4 games. The news was first revealed by a French outlet and then later clarified by Sony.
    Sony has confirmed with GameSpot that Share Play users will be limited to 60 minutes per session. There's no limit on the number of times you can use Share Play, meaning you can conceivably start Share Play up again and continue playing.
    This essentially means that you can have hour long segments of time where you share your game library with an onl...

  • Phil Spencer Again Says that Rare is an Important Part of the Future of Xbox

    Phil Spencer has once again remarked that Rare will be super important to the future of Xbox. This is despite the company being nothing more than a shell of its former self and pumping out Kinect titles.
    "Right now with Rare we're at a point where I don't want the Rare brand to mean Kinect Sports. The Rare brand can be more valuable to them, to us and to gamers than that. "I think it's about them thinking about the next game that's going to be the next 'Rare game' and really stand for what they are. I know they've got some great ideas. I've not been up to Twycross for maybe six months, but I'm planning on getting up there th

  • Payday Developer Working on Walking Dead FPS

    Payday Developer Working on Walking Dead FPS

    Overkill Software, the studio behind the popular Payday series, has revealed that they are working on a new game for The Walking Dead. Slated for release in 2016, Overkill's The Walking Dead will be a first-person co-op shooter with survival horror, stealth, and RPG elements.

    That is to say, it will be like Payday but in The Walking Dead. Which is probably a bit like Overkill's take on Left 4 Dead given the similarities between Payday and Left 4 Dead already.

    Fans are a bit upset and what they claim is a "bait and switch" as many believed that this big build up was for new Payday 2 content or maybe a new Payday game...

  • Microsoft Finally Admits that Rise of the Tomb Raider is a Timed Exclusive

    Microsoft Finally Admits that Rise of the Tomb Raider is a Timed Exclusive

    Microsoft really needs to lay off of using the word "exclusive" when they continue to pull stunts like this. It was a phrasing that drew a ton of controversy and anger from gamers all over that felt like Microsoft was paying to eliminate competition and that Square Enix turned their back on long time fans.

    Earlier today Phil Spencer finally admitted that the "exclusive" release of the new Rise of the Tomb Raider is only a timed exclusive for the Xbox platform. Unfortunately, he still did not reveal just how long of a timed exclusive it would be. Here is what he said to Eurogamer.
    "When people want me to say, can you tell us when or if it's coming to other platforms, it's not
