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

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

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. 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...

  • Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig Departs Naughty Dog (Updated)

    Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig Departs Naughty Dog (Updated)

    Update: Naughty Dog has responded to the allegations that Druckmann and Straley had anything to do with Hennig's departure.
    Earlier this week we had to confirm the regrettable news that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog. She will be missed and, as we stated before, we appreciate the significant contributions that she has made to Naughty Dog and the industry in general. We wish her the best. However, we feel it necessary to clear up a very important point that was unprofessionally misreported when the story broke. Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann were NOT involved in what transpired. It was very upsetting to us that dozens of stories were run, linking back to the same hurtful acc

  • Wrong Version of South Park: The Stick of Truth was Sent to Germany, Includes Swastikas

    Including imagery of the swastika in games or other media in Germany is considered a violation of federal law. That's why games that feature Germans in World War II have to be heavily edited prior to release in that region.

    Unfortunately, it seems as though the wrong version was reproduced and sent to Germany that does not include censoring of a few scenes containing the swastika. Whoops!

    Here's a translated excerpt from Gameswelt that details the issue.
    How us an anonymous source has happened, seems the USK version of South Park: The staff come to be the truth uncut in the trade. Thus, not only the previously discussed contain scenes

    Kojima Wants a PC Version of Metal Gear Solid 5

    In a recent interview with GameSpot, Hideo Kojima expressed a big interest in creating a PC version of Metal Gear Solid 5.
    "PC, that's my original background. I originally created PC games," Kojima said. "A long time ago I didn't want to rely on platforms to release games, so if people want it, I cannot make a formal announcement, but that is definitely something that I would like to do."
    Right now, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is slated for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is currently slated to be released on the Xbox One and PlaySta...

  • Battlefield 4 Updated on Consoles - Includes Max Rank Increase, Tweaks, Fixes, and Drugged Vision

    The latest update for Battlefield 4 came out for the consoles today. Gamers on the PS3, PS4, 360, and Xbone get to enjoy a variety of tweaks, fixes, and a new rank cap of 120!

    They also get to experience this.


    Those images were posted by two different users and seems to be a new issue that was introduced in the latest patch. Also, the Killcam is broken for many players. It now sometimes doesn't display the killer's info at all, sometimes it shows the wrong info, other times it simply shows a teammate instead of the person who killed you. Many players are also reporting that their games are locking up or outright crashing between every map change and sometimes randomly in the middle of a round. There are no vehicles or parachute spawns in the Obliteration mode. Guns sometimes spawn a good 5+ seconds after your character spawns. These, plus other issues, wer...

  • Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    It is perhaps not that uncommon after a major title is shipped to see some additional help let go. Extra hands are brought on during development that are suddenly no longer needed once the game is released. It may be a common occurrence but it is no less sad to hear.

    The latest round of layoffs have impacted 27 people at Eidos Montreal, the development studio behind Thief and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix confirmed the unfortunate news today with RPS.
