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...

  • Games with Gold is 'Fundamentally Different' Than PlayStation Plus, Says Xbox's Phil Spencer

    During a talk at this weekend's SXSW, Microsoft's Phil Spencer said that the Xbox Games with Gold program is "fundamentally different" when compared to "other programs" since it allows members to keep games regardless of whether or not they pay for a subscription.

    Spencer is obviously referring to Sony's PlayStation Plus program without directly mentioning the competition by name.

  • Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home is slated to come out on "consoles." The latest blog entry from The Fullbright Company wasn't too specific on which consoles they meant, but I'm going to assume something with "Xbox" and/or "PlayStation" in the name. I know, call me crazy.


    Midnight City is to thank for the console version of this game that seems to have really divided the gamers of the world on whether or not it's good. Both teams plan to release more specific details on this "console" release later on down the road....

  • Newegg Giving Away the 'Ultimate Titanfall Gaming Experience' Valued at More than $11,000

    Titanfall is slated to be released tomorrow for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC platforms. To mark the occasion, Newegg is holding a special Titanfall Sweepstakes that will see over $11,000 worth of prizes being dished out to the lucky winners.

    They're calling it the "ultimate Titanfall gaming experience" and given what the grand prize includes, that description sounds rather spot on.

    The grand prize winner will receive:
    • Custom-painted Titanfall themed desktop PC (CyberpowerPC Intel Core i7 4960x (3.6GHz), 16GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, AMD Radeon HD 7990 6GB, Windows 8.1)

  • Most of Titanfall's 50GB Install Size is Taken Up by Localized Language Audio Files

    Allegedly, most of the 50GB install size for Titanfall is due to almost 35GB of audio files. For some unknown reason, Respawn and EA have decided to include every localized language pack into one install. That means that no matter what language you speak, you will have every language included in your download and install of the game.

    This comes from a user on the Escapist forums. I do not have the game myself and cannot verify these claims but he did provide a couple of images as proof. The first is seen above from the unpacking process. The second one, below, shows the language directory.

    Yes, that ...

    GameStop Raises Price for the PlayStation 4 Camera Due to Lack of Supply

    In a statement issued to Polygon, a Sony rep did not really comment on the shortage but instead said that the camera is in high demand.
    "While we do not comment on the sales figures, shipment or monthly production quantity, PlayStation Camera remains in high demand, and we've been pleased with the camera's popularity among PlayStation 4 owners. We continue
