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.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

  • Resident Evil HD Remake Coming to PC and all Current-gen Platforms

    Resident Evil HD Remake Coming to PC and all Current-gen Platforms

    In early 2015, Capcom will bring the classic Resident Evil remake to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Commonly called REmake, the game will include vastly improved visuals when compared to the original release of Resident Evil on the PlayStation. The game even includes improvements when compared to the GameCube REmake. It now includes better textures, 1080p support on the PS4 and XB1, 5.1 surround sound support, and even the option to play at the classic 4:3 ratio or in the new 16:9 aspect ratio.

  • Spiral Game Studios "Thrilled" to Shut Down

    Spiral Game Studios "Thrilled" to Shut Down

    Well this is an odd one. Spiral Game Studios, the studio behind the lackluster Orion: Prelude and Orion: Dino Horde is now "thrilled" to shut down.
    I am thrilled to announce the end of Spiral Game Studios. All content, IP, research and technology is being absorbed into the newly formed TREK Industries courtesy of the TREK Play label.

    The announcement concludes simply with a link to Trek Industries. Trek Industries is a newly formed studio that is now absorbing all of the assets from Spiral Game Studios. This is presumably just a simple change in name for what is essentially the same studio. ...

  • Nintendo to Offer Retailer Specific DLC with Hyrule Warriors - First Time Ever for the Company

    For the first time ever in the history of Nintendo (as far as I can recall, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong), the company is going to offer retailer specific content for Hyrule Warriors. The reveal came near the tail end of tonight's live stream for the game. Nintendo revealed that retailers will have different pieces of extra content to offer. Granted, while this extra content is nothing more than special pre-order costume packs, it is still notable as it shows that Nintendo is jumping on board the same unfortunate trends that other companies began not so long ago. These costumes include character outfits based off of ...

  • Rumor: GameStop Simplifying Trade-in Process but is it Better?

    Rumor: GameStop Simplifying Trade-in Process but is it Better?

    In some supposedly leaked documents from GameStop that were obtained by Kotaku, the retail chain may soon overhaul their trade-in system, perhaps for the better in some instances.

    According to the rumor, August 18 will mark the start of a more simplified trade-in program at GameStop. This system seems to streamline a lot of the payment options and removes a lot of the bonus options that used to exist. Take the following chart as an example of what this new plan will do.


    Sure, you get more for in-store credit than if you got cash back but you are now eliminating a lot of the promotional offers that used to give you a lot more than their flat rate. Granted,...

  • Cosmo Offers In-Depth Commentary on his World Record Run in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    Famous speedrunner Cosmo recently broke the world record for shortest time to beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The run was completed in 18 minutes and 10 seconds. This run is the culmination of years of work and research from the speed running community, countless hours of practice, and a touch of good luck thrown in for good measure. He says that this is "the greatest speedrun (he's) ever done."

    The video below offers up his in-depth commentary on the entire run and what went into achieving this incredibly low time.

    Yes, this is a glitched run of the game but that certainly does not ta...

    Madden NFL 15 Figures Coming to a Happy Meal Near You

    McDonald's revealed their upcoming Happy Meal toys today and it's a bit of an odd one. The kids meals will begin to include football figures based off of the Madden NFL 15 license.


    They appear to be fairly generic football figures with team logos on their chests.

  • White Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Bundle Rumored

    White Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Bundle Rumored

    Microsoft is readying another bundle for this Holiday season. It is confirmed that the bundle will include a copy of Sunset Overdrive with an Xbox One. What makes this interesting, however, is the rumor that the Xbox One might be white in color. It will presumably look similar to the special Microsoft only white Xbox One consoles that Microsoft gave out to employees at launch.


    Microsoft has not yet announced the specifics of the Xbox One Sunset Overdrive bundle yet. Also keep in mind that there is an upcoming Madden NFL 15 bundle shipping later this month....
