Respawn Apologizes to Ass-hat Gamers for 'Ass-hat' Remarks

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.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has officially purchased Insomniac Games today. You're probably surprised to hear that the studio that developed last year's PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man wasn't already owned by Sony prior to this week.

Insomniac Games was first started in 1994 and remained an independent game developer for this 25 year span of time. They created Spyro the Dragon, the Ratchet & Clank games, along with the Resistance franchise. All of these franchises were PlayStation exclusives, at least initially. Every so...

Cyberpunk 2077 Announced for Google Stadia

A game about an obsession with power is coming to Google Stadia.

CD Projekt RED announced today that Cyberpunk 2077 is also coming to Stadia, the cloud-based gaming platform from Google. Stadia owners will get to experience a story set in the open-world location of Night City. This megalopolis is filled with those obsessed with power, glamor, and the never ending pursuit of body modification.

Players will assume the role of V, a mercenary outlaw in search of an implant that could be the key to immortality. Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to customize your "cyberware,"...

Rust is Killing Linux Support; Devs Offer Refunds

Rust became a "cheater's sanctuary" on Linux.

On August 9, Rust developer Garry Newman wrote a blog talking about potential plans for the long neglected Linux client for their open-world survival game. In the blog, Newman talks about how he and the team could have done more to support the client, even if he says their support "might have been above average."

He goes on to say that the Linux version had "become more popular with the cheating community." However, even with performance and anti-cheat improvements coming soon to the Windows...

Halo Infinite Creative Director Leaves 343 Industries

Tim Longo says farewell to 343.

The creative director for Halo Infinite, Tim Longo, is no longer employed at 343 Industries. His departure comes just a few weeks after he had moved to a different role within the company a few weeks back. The details surrounding his move to that "new role" are quite scarce.

His departure from 343 also comes at a time where Halo Infinite is very deep in development. The game isn't slated to be released until late 2020, but it has been in development at the Microsoft owned studio for around four years at present. Halo Infinite's...

    John Madden.

    EA and the NFL announced the start of the EA Sports Madden NFL 20 Championship Series (MCS). All four Madden NFL Major tournaments will be held during key NFL moments during the season.

    These key moments include the NFL Kickoff, the NFL playoffs push, the Super Bowl, and the NFL Draft. And for those that like sponsors, you may be thrilled(?) to learn that the NFL partners of Pizza Hut and Snickers will also serve as sponsors for the MCS. Apparently these will "heighten the connection to the League."

  • Overwatch Design Team Claims Sigma's Bare Feet Are Meant to Sell the 'Mad Scientist' Look

    The design of heroes, both visually and gameplay-wise, always sparked heated debates in the Overwatch community. In fact, dozens of YouTubers “rose to fame” recording videos where they shared their thoughts and opinions regarding in-game skins. Some of these videos are so in-depth that they analyze everything from how the particular skin fits the hero’s backstory to the color palette.

    Naturally, when the latest hero, Sigma, entered the Overwatch scene, people immediately started talking. That isn’t a new phenomenon in the gaming world, and in the context of a Blizzard...

  • Resort Boss: Golf Out Today on PC

    Resort Boss: Golf Out Today on PC

    Build and run your own golf resort.

    It may not be SimGolf but it's perhaps the closest thing to it. Resort Boss: Golf is out of Early Access today thanks to the efforts by Excalibur Games and Gus Martin. It's a tycoon management title that allows players to create and operate their own golf resorts.

    There is even a scenario editor added that now allows players to create their own challenges. In addition, players can now add in things like a driving range or putting green if building a full course isn't something they feel like doing some days.

    Gus Martin...

    Survival at any cost.

Players will again dive into a new narrative-driven scenario where they will play as Anja. She, like many others, lives in a warzone and carries a heavy burden.

  • MechWarrior 5 Drops Steam for Epic Games Store; Refunds Being Offered

    MechWarrior 5 Drops Steam for Epic Games Store; Refunds Being Offered

    Also, it's delayed until December.

    It's a hell of a day for hopeful MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries fans. We just learned that MechWarrior 5 has decided to drop Steam to be an Epic Games Store exclusive. The appeal of Epic's cash is apparently too tempting a mistress for the team at Piranha Games to pass up.

    Not only is MechWarrior 5 an exclusive to the Epic Games Store, but the game is also delayed by a couple of months. This shift to the Epic Games Store now means that mod support is in question. At the very least, there will be no centralized location to download and install...

  • Arma 3's Alien Focused 'Contact' Expansion is Out Now

    Arma 3's Alien Focused 'Contact' Expansion is Out Now

    Yes, aliens.

    Though Arma 3 is known for its gritty, sometimes excessive, military realism, that doesn't mean it's now allowed to be a bit silly if it wants to be. That seems to be the thinking behind today's release of the new Contact spin-off expansion that came out today. As you can probably guess from the name, this does indeed involve aliens.

    This expansion was apparently revealed just a few weeks back. We seem to have missed that one when it first showed up. Our bad. Let's quickly catch you up to speed on what this expansion is all about then, yeah?

  • The Shortlist that is the Battlefield V Update 4.2 Patch Notes

    The Shortlist that is the Battlefield V Update 4.2 Patch Notes


    DICE finally revealed the patch notes for Update 4.2, which is slated to hit Battlefield V tomorrow (Thursday, July 25) starting at 1AM (PT) with the PC update. PS4 and XB1 updates will follow at 2AM and 3AM respectively. On the plus side, they say that they have fixes that target "extreme instances of invisible soldiers." On the other hand, the total number of changes can be counted on just two hands.

    For a fairly major update, this seems to be rather lacking. Battlefield Community Manager Adam "PartWelsh" Freeman did provide some additional...

    Catherine: Full Body 'Decisions' Trailer

    Choices matter.

    Atlus just released a new trailer for Catherine: Full Body today. This trailer, Decisions, gives players a little taste of the game's main story and how your choices do, indeed, matter. In addition, word around town is that there is a free demo for the game available now on the PlayStation Store.

    Obviously, the choices you make in the Catherine: Full Body demo may not matter too much. However, when the full game releases in Western markets on September 3, you will have to face the consequences of your actions and choices. This new Decisions trailer shows...

    Punching Nazis is more fun with a friend.

    On Friday, or Thursday for those on PC, Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be released. And when it does, you and a friend will get to punch, shoot, and *gasp* kill a bunch of Nazis together.
