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. 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.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

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...

    Batman: Arkham Origins Launch Trailer

    If you did not opt to watch the lengthy 17-minute gameplay video from the other day, perhaps you'd be interested in watching the launch trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins instead.

    In case you've forgotten, Arkham Origins is slated to be released this Friday on the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is also coming out this Friday for the Nintendo 3DS and Vita....

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts Rumored to Run at 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PlayStation 4

    Man alive, the rumors are flying high tonight with respect to what resolution Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at on the next-gen consoles. Various sources over at NeoGAF, a few very accurate ones at that (based on their past reveals), say that CoD: Ghosts runs at just 720p and 60fps on the Xbox One.

    This is in contrast to the word that the PS4 version of the game will run it at 1080p resolution. The NeoGAF thread is already full of pages upon pages of people debating the validity of these separate claims that have all said the same thing.

    It seems as though Titanfall may also rock out on the Xbox One with...

    "We are going to continue to work on gameplay feature balancing with our community who have been hugely helpful in feeding back on the game," he said. "Offering this

  • Trade PSN Trophies for Prizes with the Return of the Greatness Exchange Program

    Sony's "Greatness Exchange" program was last seen back in July. This program allowed users to trade in their gold PSN trophies in for chances at some real prizes. Today, the Greatness Exchange program returns for PlayStation 3 gamers.

  • Dark Matter Pulled from Steam After Complaints Over it Being Unfinished

    Dark Matter Pulled from Steam After Complaints Over it Being Unfinished

    Dark Matter was a new side-scrolling title in the same vein as a Castlevania or Metroid title that went up on Steam and GoG just last week. Immediately, a number of users came to the conclusion that the game was simply not finished. What led them to that conclusion? Well, the ending came very, very abruptly as your character walks through a door a few short hours into the game and a simple text message pops up telling you what the end of the game is. That's it. That was literally it. Naturally those who paid for the game were left unsatisfied at the unfinished product and the game has been pulled from both digital distribution services. Adding insult to injur...
