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 announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019.

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...

  • You Can Now Buy Battlepacks for Battlefield 4

    You Can Now Buy Battlepacks for Battlefield 4

    They're now selling Battlepacks for Battlefield 4. Why the hell would anybody buy any of these?
    Starting today, we are introducing a new way to acquire Battlepacks, the bundles of content that provide a mix of in-game items including accessories, emblem shapes, profile pictures, dog tags, XP boosts, knives, and paints. Battlepacks can still be earned through normal gameplay progressions, but we are now giving players the option to purchase Battlepacks as a shortcut to catch up with their friends on the Battlefield.

  • Rumor(s): A Ton of Leaked Information for Battlefield: Hardline

    Rumor(s): A Ton of Leaked Information for Battlefield: Hardline

    Early today, it seems as though a ton of information was potentially leaked for Battlefield: Hardline. You may otherwise know it as Battlefield: S.W.A.T. or even the "Battlefield game being developed by Visceral Games." Hell, you may even know it now from its code-name of Omaha or Havana for all I know.

    The simple fact remains that there has apparently been a huge leak of information on the next Battlefield title. According to information gathered at NeoGAF, Better Battlelog, and Reddit, the next Battlefield game is indeed being developed by Visceral. Even more, they are far enough along that they will be able to show off the next Battlefield game to those...

  • Xbox One Priced in Japan

    Xbox One Priced in Japan

    According to Famitsu, the Xbox One will have a dual SKU release in Japan.

    They note that there will be an Xbox One sold without a Kinect for 39,980 (JPY). This is about $392 (USD). There will also be an Xbox One bundled with a Kinect sold for 49,980 (JPY), which is about $490 (USD). So that places the two SKU releases at about the same price as they are going for here in the States.

    Some of the accessories were also given prices. The wireless controller is 5,980 (JPY; $58 USD) and the Play & Charge kit and headset and headset adapter are all 2,480 (JPY; $24 USD) each....

    Gruesome New Screenshots for The Evil Within

    Apparently a few new shots for The Evil Within were leaked a bit early by Sony ahead of some preview embargo. So while they deal with that, the rest of the Internet wins out with some awesome looking new images.

    I should warn you, these screenshots are graphic so if ...





    Oh, I was too slow on the warning. Seriously, if you're going to get upset over some graphic images when you clicked on a link that has the words "The Evil Within" included in the title, you knew exactly what you were in for. The Evil Within is slated for release on August 26 for the PC, PS4, PS3, 360, and XB1....

    A new gameplay trailer for Activision's Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark was released today.
