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 iconic vehicle is now going to be a core element of the gameplay. Gotham's streets have been widened up a bit to accommodate the new gameplay feature and it's all designed "to integrate smoothly with Batman's gliding and...

  • Watch Dogs Contains Black Jacks, Boobs, and Booze

    Watch Dogs Contains Black Jacks, Boobs, and Booze

    The ESRB rating for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs went up the other day. It's been hit with a hard "M" for Mature rating for a variety of reasons. We're all interested to see what makes this game rated Mature, so let's see what the ESRB has to say.
    This is third-person shooter/action game in which players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a hacker trying to find an evil mastermind. Players use pistols, machine guns, assault rifles, and explosives to kill various human enemies (e.g., criminals, police officers). When close to an enemy, players are able to shoot them in the head or knock them out with a black jack.

  • Rumors and Fakes: Silent Hill: Otherworld, Dishonored 2, and DriveClub Release Date

    Today must be the day for fakes and rumors. So far today we've had a leaked teaser trailer for Silent Hill: Otherworld pop up. Shortly after was a leaked image from the end of some Dishonored 2 reveal. The latest is a supposed release date for DriveClub Many are crying fake on the first two of these rumors, while others are still holding out hope. Neither game has been announced by their development studios or publishers yet. Yes, that means that until those happen (if at all), these are merely rumors or very elaborate fakes. In a comment on NeoGAF, the person who originally posted the Dishonored 2 image said that they have no idea who sent him the i...
