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

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...

    Invasion Invades Call of Duty: Ghosts Next Month on PC and PS4

    On July 3, PC and PlayStation 4 gamers will finally get to play the Invasion DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Xbox owners are obviously already playing it.
    Departed: Set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, players who complete the map's Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.

    Battlefield: Hardline Beta Updated with "Netcode" Improvements

    The PC version of the beta for Battlefield: Hardline was updated today. Among the changes were improvements to the "netcode" based off of the "netcode" improvements for Battlefield 4.
    Did you see that they included the QUOTATIONnetcodeQUOTATION update?! Seriously, the continued use of "netcode" with the quotes just comes off as completely patronizing...

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gameplay Demo Tomorrow

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gameplay Demo Tomorrow

    Tomorrow, Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions will make public the gameplay demo they showed off to the press at E3 2014 for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

    The event will be streamed live at 3AM (PT) or 6AM (ET) through the Kojima Station Twitch channel. Given that the live gameplay demonstration will take place in the wee hours of the morning, there is a very small chance I'll be watching it live. Fortunately for you, Konami tells me that they will be "working to get the full video on its social media channels" as soon as they possibly can. So, chances are you can simply check that out on...

  • Love and War Update for TF2 - Day 2 - Bread, Weapons, Bread Weapons, and Achievements


    Welcome to the second day of reveals for the Team Fortress 2 "Love and War" update! Today's update focuses on some of the new weapons and goodies you'll be able to get your hands on when the update goes live. It also provides a lit of new achievements. One thing that stuck out to me was the weapon listed above. The Classic is very similar to the old TFC sniper rifle. Perhaps you should keep your fingers crossed that the sniper rifle isn't the only thing from TFC that Valve is going to include in this update! Also of note are the special bread-themed weapons and accessories for the classes. They also showed...

  • Heists Delayed Again for GTA Online

    Heists Delayed Again for GTA Online

    Heists are once again delayed for GTA Online, so says Rockstar. The Heists were planned to arrive shortly after the launch of GTA Online and were then pushed back to a vague "Spring" release. Well, Spring has essentially come and gone and now Rockstar has delayed the Heists even further.
    We know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated. We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can. Please know that we are focused

  • Bungie Says Parity with Previous Console Generation is the Reason Destiny Is Not 60fps

    Yet again, we're faced with another case of development of a game for the previous console generation holding back performance on the current generation of consoles. Development for four platforms is apparently the reason why Destiny does not run at 60fps on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
