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...

  • E3 2019 in Review

    E3 2019 in Review

    The good, the bad, and the boring.

    As June comes to an end, that typically only means one thing if you're a fan of games or gaming: E3 has once again come and gone. Typically, this is a time to look back on all of the amazing new reveals or take in details on the newest hardware announcements, but E3 2019 felt a bit different.

    What is E3?
    For those who are somehow unaware of what E3 is, it stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo. As you can see each word begins with an "E" and there are three words. Weird how that works out like that. E3 is one of the...

  • Review: Judgment (PS4)

    Review: Judgment (PS4)

    The same, but different.

    Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

    It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgment. Make no mistake about...

  • My Friend Pedro is Out Now for PC and Switch

    My Friend Pedro is Out Now for PC and Switch

    This game is bananas.

    Devolver Digital and developer DeadToast Entertainment are proud to announce that their over the top, martial arts filled, skateboarding, talking banana, action game called My Friend Pedro is now available. The game that blends all of those elements together with a healthy dose of shooting, platforming, and sick slow-mo moves is out now for the PC and the Nintendo Switch.

    Seriously, the game looks like it's a ton of fun based on what I've seen so far. ...

  • 2D Fighting Game Million Arthur: Arcana Blood Out Now

    2D Fighting Game Million Arthur: Arcana Blood Out Now

    Everybody was 1v1 2D fighting.

    Million Arthur: Arcana Blood is a newly released fighting game that harkens back to when fighting games were 2D and 1v1 affairs. The game features 13 playable fighters in addition to 31 "Support Knight" summon character assists. Well then, that's not exactly "1v1" then, is it, Million Arthur: Arcana Blood?

    A new story for the game was overseen by author Kazuma Kamachi. Speaking of story, this one focuses on "Britain's Grand Martial Arts Tournament and the warriors aiming for victory and recognition as the true Arthur."...

  • Dead by Daylight Getting F2P Mobile Release

    Dead by Daylight Getting F2P Mobile Release

    Get some scares in on the road.

    A mobile release of the multiplayer title Dead by Daylight is apparently coming soon for iOS and Android. The news was confirmed today by Behaviour. They also note that the game will be free-to-play at release and is built from the ground up "to offer the best user experience and controls on mobile devices."

    If you haven't heard of Dead by Daylight yet, or need a refresher, I got you. Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer game. There are four survivors and one powerful killer. The hunter is usually a maniacal and crazy...

  • Bungie Details Big Changes Coming to Eververse in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

    Bungie Details Big Changes Coming to Eververse in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

    There are some good changes in store, Guardian.

    When Destiny 2: Shadowkeep launches this Fall, Bungie is going to have made a ton of changes to some core mechanics in their space opera shooter. Among those changes will be a fairly drastic overhaul to Eververse and some of the currencies associated with that in-game store.

    Eververse has been a small point of contention for Destiny fans ever since the first Destiny title. It is an in-game store that sells various items for currency that you can earn by playing the game or for another currency type that you can only obtain...

  • Alpha Protocol Pulled from Steam

    Alpha Protocol Pulled from Steam

    It may be a temporary thing.

    The Steam store listing for Alpha Protocol was updated today. Instead of a normal store listing for the game, the page now says that Alpha Protocol has been pulled from sale on Steam at the request of the publisher. The publisher in this case being Sega.

    It's not at all clear what is happening with the game to result in Sega halting sales. Typically when a game that has been released is suddenly pulled, it means one of a few things. Either a remaster or remake of the game is coming soon, there is a licensing issue with audio in the game,...

  • DONTNOD's Twin Mirror Delayed Until 2020, Now Also an Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

    Timed exclusives on PC continue to be a fat load of BS.

    Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind games like Vampyr and Life is Strange, announced today that they have signed a partnership with Epic Games for Twin Mirror. You already know what that means. Yes, Twin Mirror is now going to be a one-year exclusive on the Epic Games Store.

    The game was announced back at E3 2018. All that we've really seen about the game came during that show by way of a short teaser trailer and word that it was a new "story-driven adventure" title. We also know that Bandai Namco...

  • Twitch is Suing Users that Posted Porn, Violence, Racism, and More to Artifact Section

    The company says these users harmed their business.

    In March 2019, a bunch of idiots got together and flooded the Artifact section on Twitch with all sorts of random content. This seemed to include everything from multiple hour loops of "Ayaya" to things like showing full copyrighted Hollywood films like Avengers: Endgame, full episodes of various copyrighted television shows like Malcolm in the Middle, a whole lot of uncensored hardcore porn like raw gachi (NSFW if you decide to search for it), to uncensored footage of the Christchurch mosque terror attack, and an assortment of videos full of extreme racism and misogyny.

    In other words, it was a real shitshow. ...
