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...

    My Final Thoughts on Titanfall as the Beta Nears Its End

    As the Titanfall beta comes to a close (later on Feb 19), I offer up some final thoughts of my impressions on the beta and the game. It also shows off the Hardpoint Domination mode with the two beta maps, Burn Cards, challenges, and character progression.

    It should also be noted that during the upload (or encoding) process, some weird video skips popped up. Those major hiccups were not seen in the game itself, though there were a few other minor framerate hiccups here and there....

  • Blizzard Introduces $60 Automatic Level 90 Boost in World of Warcraft

    Blizzard Introduces $60 Automatic Level 90 Boost in World of Warcraft

    Why pay some stranger a lot of money to level your World of Warcraft characters, when you can pay Blizzard just $60 to get you to level 90 immediately!


    This may or may not be the final price. WoW Insider speculates that this wasn't even supposed to be live yet since pre-orders were not yet live. Thus, there is a small chance that this isn't the final price. However, the ability to purchase the automatic boost was apparently live on a number of servers, so make of that what you will.
