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...

    The 1.1 patch for Goat Simulator will add some fresh content for free to the game. Included in the update will be a new playable map and local multiplayer!
    ATTENTION GOATS

    Patch will come in the middle of May!

  • Rumor: Next Borderlands Game is a Pre-Sequel

    Rumor: Next Borderlands Game is a Pre-Sequel

    If this rumor is true, Gearbox's Randy Pitchford wasn't lying when he said that Borderlands 3 wasn't yet in development at the studio. The latest rumor going around is that the next Borderlands title is a "pre-squel" and is actually going to be pegged as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

    What this means is that the next game will take place in the span of time between the first Borderlands game and Borderlands 2. You will reportedly play as four new characters and it will take place on the moon above Pandora, including the H-shaped station above the planet. It's reportedly going to come out for the Xbox 360, PlaySt...

    EA Sports UFC Releasing June 17 and Includes Bruce Lee as a Pre-Order Bonus

    Not only was the cover for EA Sports UFC revealed a short time ago, some promotional shots of posters for the game revealed a neat pre-order bonus. First up, the game is slated for release on June 17 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


    An image snapped of a piece of promotional material in a store shows off that Bruce Lee is a pre-order bonus character for the game.


    The image comes courtesy of Coolade from NeoGAF and I can only assume that the blurred fleshy bit on the right side of the photograph is someone's ass cheek and not a finger as one may typically assume....
