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...

    Randy Pitchford Paid $25,000 for Penn Jillette's Ponytail

    Yes, Randy Pitchford from Gearbox has paid $25,000 for the pleasure of owning Penn Jillette's ponytail. Alright, so there's a bit more to it than that, but the rest doesn't make for an interesting headline.

    Pitchford actually paid $25,000 to help crowdfund Penn Jillette's horror movie. His contribution qualifies him for an Executive Producer credit on the film and the "Big Spending Whales Get Our Ponytails" reward tier on the crowdfunding page.
    "A lot of guys in my seat spend the money they make on Italian sports cars or big houses, and I think that's great if that drives the will to make things happen, but I seem to want to keep

    PlayStation 4 To Launch with Optional Real Name IDs

    More and more, the social network dominated world that you live in makes use of real names instead of online personas (what a crazy idea), so why should PlayStation 4 IDs be an exception?

    That's right, when the PlayStation 4 launches next month, gamers will have the OPTION of using their real names for their ID instead of a simple online nickname. Sony has even said previously that you can use both your real name and an online persona name if you so desire and you will not be restricted on who you play with based off of which name you choose to use. Of course, people are already up in arms over t...
