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

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...

    Steam Tags Launches in Beta - Allows Users to Add Custom Genres to Games

    Another beta has hit Steam today by way of the new "Steam Tags" feature. This new feature will allow users to assign custom tags to games and those tags that are most common to a game will be added to the store listing for those games.
    Now available in beta, Tagging gives Steam customers the ability to "Tag" any title with genres, themes, attributes, or any other term or phrase. The most popular tags on any given product will be surfaced on said product's Steam page and allow users to easily find other products associated with that same tag.

  • Far Cry Classic Launch Trailer is a Blast from the Past

    Far Cry Classic Launch Trailer is a Blast from the Past

    Remember when Far Cry was the graphical powerhouse game that was benchmarked up and down the river for quite some time? Remember that? I do. It's weird how far games have come graphically since then.

    With the release of Far Cry Classic on the PS3 and 360, you can now re-live those days of shooting some decent human AI in a tropical environment.

    Return to where it all began with Far Cry Classic and relive the game that launched a legacy. With graphical enhancements, revamped cutscenes, and a fresh new UI, Far Cry Classic allows players to experience all the action and chilling gameplay that made

    Sign-ups Begin for the Titanfall Beta

    The registration page for players to sign up for their chance to enter the Titanfall beta on PC or Xbox One has gone live. The page has you select which platform you prefer to beta test on and prompts you to log in to your Origin account with a pop-up login page. The site is, understandably, being hammered right now with visitors. It may take you several tries or even several hours before you are able to fully log in and finish the beta registration process. Applying for the closed beta does not guarantee a thing, but it really can't hurt to try. I found that I had the most success using Chrome to get the...
