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 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...

    Digital Foundry Compares Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4 vs Xbox One vs PC

    Digital Foundry has delivered in spades again tonight with their in-depth analysis of Battlefield 4 visual fidelity and performance between the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC. They do stress that both console versions are being run on development kits and are still in development.

    Needless to say, there are some basic differences in image quality that need knocking on the head right away. Chief among them is the hot topic of internal resolution, where we determine that the Xbox One code is indeed running at 1280x720. If this is set in stone for release - as is likely - the Microsoft version is poised to give us the most aliasing

    PS3 vs PS4 Visual Comparison for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    Check out this user created comparison video showing off the differences between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.


    Obviously this is best viewed at the 1080p setting if you have the bandwidth for it (and YouTube cooperates). Also obviously a lot is lost thanks to video compression but noticeable differences include higher resolution textures, more natural blurring, and improved scene focus....

  • Grand Theft Auto V Review - Single Player

    Grand Theft Auto V Review - Single Player

    Grand Theft Auto V is the best game in the long running GTA series. That is without question, the biggest compliment I can give the game. It features phenomenal acting and voice work, a wide variety of missions, engaging heists, and three playable characters with distinct and memorable personalities.

    It surpasses even Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in terms of fun and sometimes over the top activities to partake in. It features a more detailed world than Grand Theft Auto IV ever did. It is, without question, the best open world title of this current generation of games, surpassing even the recently released Saints Row IV. Having achieved 100% in-game progress after doing this, that, and everything else this game has to offer I can say that GTA 5 is more than worth the price of admission. You knew this all already...
