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...

  • Kickstarter Hacked - Some User Information Stolen

    Kickstarter Hacked - Some User Information Stolen

    Kickstarter, the go-to site for crowd-funding a variety of projects, has been hacked. The notice comes from the Kickstarter site and makes it clear that no credit card data was accessed. However, other information such as usernames, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords were stolen. They are also quick to point out that no actual passwords were revealed but it is possible, as is always the case in situations like this, that the encryption can be cracked. It's strongly suggested that you change your password at the Kickstarter website and at any site or service where you may have used the sa...

    Bored? Join Up with Over 24,000 Others on Twitch to Play Pokemon

    Let's face it, the Twitch chat is known for being horrible. Yet, someone had the great idea to use that horribleness as inputs for a bot to play Pokemon live to the people that are trying to control the game.

    The idea is simple. You watch the stream (also embedded below) at the TwitchPlaysPokemon Twitch channel. You join the chat. You say a command like "up" or "down" and the bot takes each of those commands and actually inputs them into the game. Right now, there are over 24,000 people watching and participating in this. Yes, it's just as much of a terrible and awesome idea as it sounds. To put things into pers...

    The Valentine's Day sales just keep on coming. This time Origin is offering 50% off of your next Origin Store purchase until February 17 at 10AM (PST).

    That still leaves a lot of games available for you to save on.
