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...

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...

  • Seth Rogan to Direct a Sony Film Based on the Nintendo and Sega Console Wars of the 90s

    That headline is mind blowing. Funnyman Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg will write and direct a film based on the 1990s console wars between Sega and Nintendo.

    Sony is the studio behind the film after having picked up the rights to Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle That Defined a Generation which is written by Black Harris. The book apparently details the corporate battle that "helped turn video games into a massive industry." The book itself isn't even out yet.

    Rogan and Goldberg previously worked together on Superbad, Pineapple Express, and This is the End. I really have no idea how this is going to turn out but that console war was incredible....

  • Divinity: Original Sin Pushed Back to Spring

    Divinity: Original Sin Pushed Back to Spring

    Originally slated for release on February 28, it seems as though Divinity: Original Sin is now targeting a "Spring 2014" release window.

    The reveal came in a new trailer for the latest entry in the RPG series.

    Divinity: Original Sin goes back to the values of memorable cRPGs: isometric, party-based, turn-based, gripping dialogues, choices and consequence, deep story, profound character and party development, a big interactive world filled with characters and items, free exploration... There is only one main goal, and how you get there is completely up to you. Of course, everything is more fun with a

  • Dean Hall to Leave Bohemia and DayZ After 2014

    Dean Hall to Leave Bohemia and DayZ After 2014

    Once 2015 rolls around, Dean Hall will no longer be with Bohemia or DayZ. The creator of the wildly successful mod turned stand-alone title says that he will stick with the studio until the end of the year, at which point he will leave to begin his own development studio.

    Hall sat down with Eurogamer to detail his plans and what may become of DayZ, which is still an alpha release on Steam Early Access.
    "Oh, it's set. Definitely," he nodded. But he won't leave DayZ in the lurch - won't leave at a crucial time. "I would extend my involvement here as long as Bohemia wanted - needed - me," he stressed. In other words, there's flexibility. "O

    Today, Microsoft announced the special Titanfall Xbox One bundle. This bundle includes the Xbox One system, Kinect, controller, headset, a month of Xbox Live Gold, and a copy of Titanfall.

  • Oculus Rift to Temporarily Cease Production Due to Material Shortage

    Oculus Rift to Temporarily Cease Production Due to Material Shortage

    Oculus revealed that they will have to temporarily suspend production on the Oculus Rift developer kits due to certain components no longer being manufactured. Without parts, they can't make more Rifts. Seems simple enough.

    A post on the Oculus section on Reddit outlines what is happening and the current shipping situations.
    Certain components used in the Oculus Rift developer kit are no longer being manufactured, meaning they are no longer available to us for production. As a result, we don't have the necessary materials to produce additional kits. We still have some stock available, but we're quickly running out. We are looking into alternate sources for the needed components,

  • Hands-on with Go! Go! Nippon! ~My First Trip to Japan~

    Hands-on with Go! Go! Nippon! ~My First Trip to Japan~

    Let's visit Japan! It will be fun! It will be educational! There will be toilets! There will be dating! There will be WcDonalds! There will be nudity!

    In all seriousness, this IS rather educational and informative if you can get past the unnecessary dating and romantic story stuff that has been mixed in. It's billed as a "guidebook in game format" and it can actually be quite enjoyable if you pay attention and aren't screwing around trying to create something for the sake of cheap entertainment like I did here.

    Go! Go! Nippon! ~My First Trip to Japan~ is available now through Steam...

  • Gearbox Suing 3D Realms and Interceptor Over Unauthorized Use of Duke Nukem IP

    Gearbox has filed a lawsuit against 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment over unauthorized use of the Duke Nukem IP. Gearbox picked up the rights to the Duke Nukem IP when 3D Realms sold it back in 2010. Allegedly, 3D Realms was quietly talking with developers and trying to make it seem like they never actually sold the IP.

    Ha ha, whoops!

    So that Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction top-down action-RPG that surfaced a short while ago really isn't legally allowed to be made. There was even a countdown to some sort of reveal slated for February 25.

    Haha, whoops!

    The full complaint lays it all out for you. If you...
