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...

    PSA: Steam has a BAFTA Sale Going on Until Tomorrow

    The British Academy Games Awards (BAFTA) are being celebrated through a small sale on Steam. The sale claims it's on for 24 hours but I have no idea when it began. It should be safe to assume that you should buy what you want right when you see it instead of waiting.

    It includes such titles as Surgeon Simulator 2013, The Stanley Parable, Tomb Raider, Gunpoint, Brothers, and many more great titles.

    Again, the clock is ticking on these, so hurry up and check out the BAFTA sale page before the sale is no more.

  • This War of Mine Announced - Takes a Decidedly Different Approach to War Games

    11 Bit Studios has just announced This War of Mine. Gone are your conventional staples of war games where you play as part of a national military or as some elite squad.

    No, this one is a bit different.
    In This War of Mine, the focus is shifted away from military operations portrayed in most games. Instead, it is a dark survival game where players control a group of civilians trying to stay alive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, offering players time to craft, trade, upgrade their shelter, feed and cure their people. At night they must scavenge nearby areas in search for food, medicines,

  • Flappy Bird Creator Dong Nguyen Set to Release Checkonaut This Month

    Flappy Bird Creator Dong Nguyen Set to Release Checkonaut This Month

    The creator of the sleeper hit Flappy Bird, Dong Nguyen, is readying a new game that may be released by the end of this month. It's called Checkonaut and is being billed as an "action chess game."

    Will this game suffer the same fate as Flappy Bird? It's anybody's guess right now. However, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Nguyen expanded upon his reasons for pulling the game.

    Part of the reason involves addiction. He equated the addiction some players had with Flappy Bird with the same addiction he faced with Counter-Strike. His studies suffered as a result.
    Nguyen estimated he was clearing $50,000 a day. Before long, Shuriken Block

    The Witcher 3 Slated for a February 2015 Release

    CD Projekt RED has issued an open letter to the fans that are awaiting the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. They talk about a new planned release date of February 2015.
    Ever since we started working on the third installment in The Witcher franchise, it has been our aim to produce a title that would take our 11 years of experience in creating RPGS and distill them into a quintessence, into a game that would effectively crown those years. At the same time, we have wanted The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole. Ultimately, you, the players, must get an unforgettable

  • Respawn Explains Titanfall's 48GB Install Size

    Respawn Explains Titanfall's 48GB Install Size

    The other day, someone from The Escapist said that the audio for Titanfall included every localized language file. Now that the game is out for everyone, it's a bit easier to see what your hard drive space is being taken up by.


    It seems as though that while there are a multitude of localized language files, the bulk of the audio size is indeed taken up by uncompressed audio. In speaking with Eurogamer, Respawn's Lead Engineer, Richard Baker, said that they use uncompressed audio to make it easier on lower end machines.
    "Yeah, basically when you download the game or the disc itself, it's a lot smaller than that," Baker
