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...

Right now they're showing rebroadcasts of yesterday's matches. Additionally, you can watch the matches within Counter-Strike: Global Offensive itself when they ...

    Valve is Accepting New Team Fortress 2 Merchandise Ideas from the Community

    Similar to how Valve accepts and implements community creations within Team Fortress 2 itself, they will now do the same for physical TF2 merchandise ideas. Beginning today, you can now submit your awesome ideas for new (actual) hats, shirts, hoodies, and more.
    For decades, humanity looked at the common baseball hat and just saw a thing you put on your head. It took a special kind of person to look at it and think, "I could attach beer cans to the sides of that thing so I'll have my hands free to hold two additional beers." It took a special kind of person to look at a t-shirt and realize, "I could draw a tuxedo on that t-shirt and trick

  • Sony Admits They Cancelled Revealing Some Titles at gamescom Due to Time Constraints

    Sony's Shuhei Yoshida admits to Famitsu that the company had to scale back their gamescom 2014 media briefing because they just had too many things they wanted to show off. As a result, some games were not even announced yet.

    The unannounced games were cut in order to show off new trailers for The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne. Yoshida says that there will be a huge focus on PlayStation 4 games at the Tokyo Game Show. He also mentions that the PS4 will be "getting lots of new content at TGS" though it's a bit unclear about what that actually means. Project Morpheus will have a presence at TGS and ...
