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...

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...

    Former STALKER Devs Announce Battle Royale FPS - Fear the Wolves

    Former developers from GSC GameWorld, the development studio for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise, have just announced a new battle royale FPS that they've been working on. Vostok Games provides us with the first look at Fear the Wolves ahead of its planned 2018 release. If you are hoping for a 100 player battle royale game set in the post-apocalyptic lands you've come to love from STALKER, well we have good news for you.
    The game drops players, in squads or as lone wolves, into the oppressive environment of a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl. The classic Battle Royale mode forces them to fight to be the last man standing out of 100 fighters, while another to-be-unveiled

    Another franchise regular, Maxi, was also confirmed for the Soulcalibur VI roster today.
    Let's be real here, was there really any doubt that Maxi wouldn't be included in the roster? Soulcalibur VI is slated to be released at some point in 2018 for the PS4, XB1, and PC via Steam. There's going to be more Soulcalibur VI shown off at E3 next month so I'm sure...

    Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition Rated for PC, PS4, and XB1

    Over in Korea, they're quite busy rating games that have not yet been publicly announced yet. The latest seems to be Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition which has been rated for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    Either the Korean ratings board is just super board and wanting to troll the world or there is something to these mysterious new ratings that they're handing out.

    2K first released the original Borderlands for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC back in late 2009. They have not yet appeared on current-generation platforms, unlike the sequels. Both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel were remastered...

  • Prepare for Fallout 76 to Not Be the Fallout You Want

    Prepare for Fallout 76 to Not Be the Fallout You Want

    Earlier today, Bethesda finally stopped their night of teasing and indeed provided a reveal for a new Fallout game!

    Today, Bethesda announced Fallout 76. They released no information about the game in the slightest. All they officially provided to the world is an announcement trailer and some screen grabs from the trailer. You can see those all at the bottom.

    It looks like the trailer was intentionally vague. That is perhaps for good reason because sources have told Kotaku that Fallout 76 is an online survival RPG. With how coy everything about this announcement has been, this isn't entirely unexpected. Fallout 76 is named after Vault 76, which has been me...

  • Valve Pulls School Shooting Simulator from Steam, Calls Developer a 'Troll'

    Valve Pulls School Shooting Simulator from Steam, Calls Developer a 'Troll'

    Valve has called the developer of Active Shooter a "troll with a history of customer abuse." Active Shooter was slated to release on June 6 from developer Revived Games publisher ACID. It was a game that would allow players to experience a mass shooting from either the point of view of the shooter or the point of view of the SWAT team that was tasked with taking them down. As you may have already guessed, some people were rightfully pissed off about this. Thankfully Valve stepped in and have decided to pull the game from Steam. In addition, they have also removed Revived Games and ACID from Steam. I would like to believe that this would have happened regardless of ...

    Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr Delayed on Consoles

    Last month, a release date of June 5 was set for Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As it turns out, that's not happening.

    Neocore and Bigben have pushed back the release date from June 5 to "later this Summer."
    Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr is an ambitious action-RPG, with vast and complex mechanics. With such an immense gameplay experience - entirely redesigned for console players - the development studio, Neocore, will need additional time to perfect the game's unique functionalities, such as local multiplayer and procedural map generation.

  • STALKER 2 Announced Only to Find a Publisher

    STALKER 2 Announced Only to Find a Publisher

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was announced earlier this month, but it sounds like that announcement was made a bit too early. This is, of course, ignoring the fact that they announced a 2021 release date for the game here in 2018. The bigger issue here comes from a revelation shared today that STALKER 2 doesn't yet have a publisher. The early, some would say premature, announcement made this month was made in order to try to secure a publisher for the game. That is to say, STALKER 2 doesn't actually have a publisher yet despite the game being announced. Yikes. This is according to Epic Games's director of publishing Sergey Galyonkin. As of right now, the gam...
