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...

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam.

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...

  • Sierra Rises from the Dead

    Sierra Rises from the Dead

    Sierra was a well known developer and publisher of games in the 80's, 90's, and up to the point it ceased to be in 2008. Well, it's back. At least, it might be back?

    The following video plays prior to showing a rather sparse page on a newly launched Sierra website.


    Back in 2008, Sierra's parent company Vivendi Universal merged with Activision to form Activision Blizzard. As a result, ownership of Sierra was transferred to Activision. Later that year, Sierra was closed down with hopes of simply being sold off.

    During its (former) lifetime, Sierra had a hand in games such as Leisure Suit...

  • Blue Estate Review (PS4)

    Blue Estate Review (PS4)

    Blue Estate is an on-rails shooter that utilizes the DualShock 4's gyroscope for aiming. The idea of using the gyroscope for aiming sounds promising enough. In theory, it should be a decent substitute for not being able to use light guns or PlayStation Move functionality. In theory, this type of game should be a lot of fun, especially for those who enjoy the arcade style on-rails shooters from days gone by. In theory a dark humor, grindhouse style of game should be amazing provided the writing is decent with just the right amount of cheese thrown in. In reality, Blue Estate is borderline terrible. Outside of a few witty one-liners, the dialogue falls flat. The attempts at cashing in on the grindhouse style just end up coming across as offensive, juvenile, and even mi...
