Statement issued from Respawn's Vince Zampella.

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella issued a bit of an apology today after members of the Apex Legends development team called a bunch of toxic ass-hat gamers, well... they called them ass-hats. Donning their biggest surprised Pikachu face possible, these Gamers™ got extra angry when they realized they couldn't just keep dishing it out and not expect some form of retaliation in return. Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.


Sony Bought Insomniac Games Today

Get ready for more Spider-Man.

    FIFA 20: What's New and What are People's Early Opinions on It?

    Soccer has been getting more and more popular in America for quite a few years now. Many think that it will one day break into the top echelons of US sports to sit alongside football as the most popular around.

    Over $33 million is up for grabs.

    Valve just passed along word that the Main Event festivities for The International Dota 2 Championships for 2019 have officially kicked off. This is all going down at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China.

    This is the ninth annual event and, once again, it has broken all sorts of records by having the biggest community-driven prize pool of over $33 million. First place is looking to get $15,276,981 once all is said and done. I think that amount can even go higher before the event ends, so that's kind of nuts.
