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...

  • Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    The launch trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 came out today. I mean, the game is out on October 12, 2018 so having a launch trailer now isn't exactly out of the ordinary.

    It's a launch trailer. It shows off some scenes of action, it has some voice over work, and the like. Since Black Ops 4 doesn't have a single player campaign, you really don't have to worry about seeing any spoilers here, so that's a plus, right?

    However, there are still some secrets hidden in the trailer. Charlie INTEL notes that the launch trailer gives you a little look at two previously unannounced multiplayer maps.
    In the trailer, starting at the 0:36

  • GOG Celebrates 10 Years by Giving You a Free Game

    GOG Celebrates 10 Years by Giving You a Free Game

    Apparently, online retailer GOG.com has been around for ten whole years now. That's actually rather wild since it still feels like it's only been a few years, at most.
    So it's been a decade. Ten years of friendships that'll last us forever, ten years with the most vivacious community of gamers, and above all ten years of unconfined DRM-free delight.

    Let's mark this moment with a look back at the past and indulge in stories from our friends in this walk of life. Oh, and we've got your anniversary present to talk about!

  • Google Wants to Stream Assassin's Creed Odyssey to You Through Chrome

    Google Wants to Stream Assassin's Creed Odyssey to You Through Chrome

    The idea of streaming a game to an end consumer isn't a radically new idea. It's been around for years now in one form or another, including with current services like PlayStation Now or Nvidia's similarly named GeForce Now. But streaming a game through a browser? Well, that's a bit different and not really something that's been done on the scale of a AAA game.

    At least, it wasn't a thing until now. Google, of all companies, announced Project Stream earlier today. They're calling it a "technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming." Their first test is to see whether or not a game like Assassin's Creed...

  • Pets Added in Fortnite Season 6

    Pets Added in Fortnite Season 6

    The sixth season of Fortnite is upon us. And while Epic Games is dubbing it the "Darkness Rises" season, I'm calling it the season where you can get pets.

    Pets in Fortnite. Hell to the yes!

    I'm talking about adorable dogs. I'm talking about dragons. I'm talking about some chameleon looking things. Can you pet them? I don't know, but I sure as hell hope so!

    Oh and there are some other changes like to the map and something about a giant purple cube and Shadow Stones? There's probably some more stuff but none of them involve pets. Of course, all of this coincides with the latest release of the Battle Pass and other tasty updates in the V6.00 update.
