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

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

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...

  • 1080p Update for Assassin's Creed IV is Available Now on PS4

    1080p Update for Assassin's Creed IV is Available Now on PS4

    Though it shipped running at 900p, the 1080p patch for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is now available for the PlayStation 4.
    "Finishing the game at 900p gave the development team the extra room in terms of the GPU and CPU usage to ensure the framerate never dips below 30 frames per second," explained Ubi.

    Though they also say that you probably won't even notice the difference between 900p and 1080p. Now, if it were a jump from 720p to 1080p, then yeah, you'd probably notice.

    They also said they've added a "brand-new anti-aliasing technique" to the game.

  • PlayStation 4 Reportedly Costs $381 to Build

    PlayStation 4 Reportedly Costs $381 to Build

    It's actually rather amazing that the PS4 only costs $399 (USD) at retail stores as a recent hardware breakdown found that the components total about $381 (USD) for the system. This is in stark contrast to when the PlayStation 3 debuted in 2006. That console was found to cost $805 to make and sold for "just" $599.

    To get into the particulars, chips take up a big proportion of the cost of the internal components. An unusually large microprocessor that is manufactured by chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices costs about $100 to build. When combined with the cost of memory chips, at $88 for 16 individual memory chips, you have more than half

  • Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    VGX is the new name for the Video Game Awards (VGAs) from years past. It seems like this year will be no exception to the rule of "new game trailer reveals" at the event as Square Enix is alluding to a new Tomb Raider next-gen reveal at this year's event in December.

    It started off simply with an Amazon Italy listing for a PS4 version of Tomb Raider. After, a Square Enix representative told IGN to keep an eye out for events in December for a potential reveal.

    Tested Compares PlayStation 4 Hard Drives - SSD, Hybrid, and HDD

    Will Smith from Tested.com recently put the PlayStation 4 through a number of tests to perhaps answer, "how much will a solid-state drive improve performance on a console?" The answer may not surprise you but there are some catches here.


    Does this sway your decision to perhaps upgrade your PS4 hard drive? If so, which direction are you leaning more towards? Simply a higher capacity drive? Or will you instead opt for a hybrid drive instead now?...

  • Black Mesa to be Sold as a Retail Release on Steam Possibly on Source Engine 2

    Sure, you waited years for the release of the underwhelming free mod that wasn't even complete. Now, you're waiting even longer for that mod to come out on Steam after being included in the first batch of Greenlit titles on Steam.

Yes, the free mod will be given a few updates and sold for a price on Steam. It still doesn't include Xen but it is on a new version of the Source Engine. Perhaps it's on Source 2?
