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...

    Possible PSA: Steam Autumn Sale Kicks Off Tomorrow, November 27

    Let's keep this rumor train rolling strong! According to documents leaked earlier this month, a Steam Autumn Sale will begin tomorrow, November 27 and will end December 3.


    The document appeared on Reddit on November 3 and supposedly comes from a Russian developer that recently had their title Greenlit on Steam. Another Reddit user verified that he was sent a copy of the email from said developer. If this is true, you have about a day to prepare your wallets. If this is true, don't expect to see anything drastically different in the Steam Holiday Sale 2013 as the email notes how the sale items ...

  • Fallout 4 Possibly Teased in Survivor 2299 ARG

    Fallout 4 Possibly Teased in Survivor 2299 ARG

    I've been sitting on this one for a while since it wasn't very clear that this "Survivor 2299" thing was actually related to Fallout 4. There was a huge amount of speculation that it was and also some evidence showing that it might not be. However, as the days go on, more and more details are emerging that seem to indicate this is a legitimate ARG for an upcoming Fallout 4 reveal. Again, all of this is merely speculation at this point and may end up just being a huge joke on the Internet and fans of the Fallout series. When you first visit the site you are greeted with a countdown and some morse code. The morse code originally pointed to a date of December 11, 2013. ...

  • Is a Bully Sequel in the Works?

    Is a Bully Sequel in the Works?

    A new trademark filed with the European Union for Bully Bullworth Academy: Canis Canem Edit has some fans excited that Rockstar Games might be planning a sequel to Bully. In addition, the "Bully" trademark was updated back in July in the United States. Rockstar has merely told fans of the series to stay tuned for news on any new developments of the series. The possibility of it being a sequel is quite high given that the original came out in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. Then again, perhaps it's another re-release, like the one that came out in 2008 for the 360 and PC, or perhaps it's an HD remake. Whatever...
