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

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

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.

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...

  • Early PlayStation 4 Owners Experiencing Hardware Failure and Console Locks

    Early PlayStation 4 Owners Experiencing Hardware Failure and Console Locks

    It's not quite up to the dreaded RROD for the Xbox 360 launch consoles but some early PlayStation 4 owners are already reporting system failures.

    A user at NeoGAF said that they tried to update their console and it froze on them.
    After playing a brief game of NBA 2k14 I quit and inserted my battlefield 4 disk. The system prompted for an update, so while watching the progress bar (Around 20%) my controller light turned from blue to white. Hasn't worked since... Get those extended warranties ready! and SCEA on speed dial! **UPDATE** Went thru a number of "fixes" with customer service and none of them worked. They are shipping me a box to get the unit serviced. Safe Mode on the console no longer works. **U

  • Three Spirits Update Detailed for Dota 2 Plus Diretide, Crafting, Coaching, and More

    Valve gave a late night update on the Three Spirits update for Dota 2. It features three different spirits that would give Captain Planet's Planeteers a run for their money.

    The Ember Spirit, Storm Spirit, and Earth Spirit are hitting the test client already. That's just one small step away from being released to the final release client. As you might expect, these three characters have abilities that are themed around their respective area of expertise.
    Storm Spirit As a fresh young spirit, the boisterous Raijin found the Wailing Mountains too constricted for his tastes, and so set forth to stir the winds of the wider world. But no sooner had he ventured out than he found himself caught in a bungled summoning spell. An amateur elementalist named Thunderkeg had hoped to end a drought; instead he ended his mortal life, forever transfigured into

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts to Receive Day One Patch to Run at 1080p on PS4

    Call of Duty: Ghosts to Receive Day One Patch to Run at 1080p on PS4

    No seriously, Call of Duty: Ghosts on the PlayStation 4 will ship with 720p visuals. However, a patch that will be ready on release day will bump the game up to 1080p like magic.
    "There was a configuration issue in the retail version on single-player mode only. This has been addressed with a day one software update. People will be able to download the day one update when PlayStation 4 launches in their territory and play at native 1080p."

    So yeah, the multiplayer will be 1080p right out of the box but the single player will require that patch.
