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...

  • Valve Uses Data Collection to Improve Cobblestone and Overpass in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Thanks to their intelligent data gathering, Valve is able to take a look at gameplay statistics in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and find trouble spots in various maps. Such was the case when it comes to Cobblestone and Overpass, both of which have been updated in the game's most recent update.

    The CS:GO team analyzed the win percentages of the T's vs the CT's and found that Cobblestone is most comparable to Nuke and Overpass is most similar to Dust2. The following charts are from the top four skill groups in competitive matchmaking from December 20, 2013 to January 20, 2014.

    They then break down the wins to see exac...

  • Launch Trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

    Launch Trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

    It's a launch trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. I'm not really sure what more you need to know.


    It sports better visuals than the previous version, including the PC. It features much higher resolution textures, better character models, better animation, TressFX for the hair, physics on more items and objects, but it runs at 30FPS on the Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 version is said to hit 60FPS far more often than the Xbox One version does....

  • Amazing Pre-Alpha Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Amazing Pre-Alpha Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    I don't recall having heard anything about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor before today. Suddenly, this walkthrough video came out and just blew my mind and made this game from relative unknown to "I want this right this second!"


    The game is an open-world action RPG set in the Lord of the Rings universe. You assume the role of Talion, a ranger with Wraith powers. The big draw here is the "Nemesis System" which lets the player interact with various characters and adjusts how those characters behave, as highlighted in the video.

    As far as the timeline goes, it takes place between the events of The...

  • Ten Additional Verified Jobs Added to GTA Online

    Ten Additional Verified Jobs Added to GTA Online

    Rockstar just approved and verified ten more jobs for GTA Online today. These include new Rockstar Verified jobs from the community and items created for their special #CreatorWeekend contest on the Rockstar Social Club.
    ROCKSTAR VERIFIED
    Twists and Twirls
    A complex but beautifully constructed point-to-point through some of Blaine County's iconic countryside. Follow the winding roads of Vinewood Hills as you race from Galileo Observatory through to Tongva Valley. Car selection from the Sports class is key here - steer clear of the Comet's twitchy back end or risk a fishtail festival. Tight turns and unforgiving cliff edges require deft use of the brake pedal, but don't be afraid to go for broke when the opportunity arises.
