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...

    BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Achievement List Revealed

    Irrational Games has decided to show off the achievements and trophies for the upcoming Burial at Sea DLC coming soon to BioShock Infinite.

    Having looked through these, I can say that there may be some very, very light spoilers here but they seem relatively harmless. However, if you are going to be one of those super uptight people, then you can't say I didn't warn you.

  • European Half-Life 3 Trademark is Allegedly Fake

    European Half-Life 3 Trademark is Allegedly Fake

    The news we recently had up (well, we did prior to the script kiddie shenanigans) about the trademark filing for Half-Life 3 is allegedly not true. Valvetime discovered that the trademark that was filed with the Trademarks and Design Registration Office of the European Union (OHIM) has been removed.

    It was listed for only about a week before being removed. However, the weird thing now is that a listing for Portal 3 has gone up just two days ago on October 2. Granted, this filing should also be believed as much as the last filing was. It is, much like the Half-Life 3 filing, probably the work of people playing...

    In this sixth episode of the PAYDAY 2 web series, we are drawn closer into the seedy world of Vlad and Gage. Special agent Griffin is getting too close to CRIMENET so Bain sends Vlad to have a "friendly" chat with her hoping the message will get across.

  • Valve Releases Details on Steam Machine Prototype Hardware

    Valve Releases Details on Steam Machine Prototype Hardware

    If you're one of the lucky 300 who will get to test drive the Steam Machine prototypes, Valve has just revealed what hardware you should expect to see.
    So for our own first prototype Steam Machine ( the one we're shipping to 300 Steam users ), we've chosen to build something special. The prototype machine is a high-end, high-performance box, built out of off-the-shelf PC parts. It is also fully upgradable, allowing any user to swap out the GPU, hard drive, CPU, even the motherboard if you really want to. Apart from the custom enclosure, anyone can go and build exactly the same machine by shopping for components and assembling it themselves. And we expect that at least a few

  • Battlefield 4 Beta is Now Open to Everyone

    Battlefield 4 Beta is Now Open to Everyone

    I hope some of you enjoyed the few day jumpstart on the Battlefield 4 beta, because as of today it is now available to everyone. All you need is the Origin client and an EA account, which most people probably have by now anyway. If you're on PC, simply log into Origin, go to the store page, and choose the Battlefield 4 beta under the demo category listings. You will need a 64-bit system to run the beta. If you're on consoles, look for the beta under the "demo" sections on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It should also be highlighted on the main tab of the Xbox 360 dashboard and you will need Xbox Live Gold in order to pl...

    Battlefield: Bad Company Series Will Return Says Director

    Lars Gustavsson told reporters at a recent Battlefield 4 event that a third installment in the Battlefield: Bad Company series will happen, you know, eventually.
    "My feeling is that I would love to do it. For me, when we started the company with 1942, it was really a work of passion," Gustavsson said. "And then we worked our way through the era of different wars, and I loved them all, like my little babies. When it came to Bad Company, it was creative freedom; don't take yourself too seriously.

    "So I love it. I want to see it again. Whether it can happen [right] now with the newly announced Mirrors Edge 2 and Star
