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...

  • THQ Nordic Acquires Koch Media

    THQ Nordic Acquires Koch Media

    News broke early this morning that THQ Nordic has acquired Koch Media. The deal, worth 121 million euro, means that THQ Nordic also now owns Deep Silver, the publisher of Saints Row, Dead Island, the upcoming Shenmue 3, the upcoming Metro Exodus, and the recently released Kingdom Come: Deliverance. You know, to name a few franchises you might recognize.

    That seems like quite the get for THQ Nordic there. Especially when you consider that back in late 2012, THQ sold off most of their assets to places like Koch Media and Nordic Games. Nordic Games then became THQ Nordic in 2016. In just the past year and a half, THQ Nordic picked up...

  • Official First-Person Mode Released for The Evil Within 2

    Official First-Person Mode Released for The Evil Within 2

    The Evil Within 2 already featured a small section of gameplay that was entirely in first-person mode. Shortly after the game's release, someone was able to mod the game to enable first-person mode for the entirety of the game. Now, Tango Gameworks has updated the game with an official first-person mode that everyone can safely enjoy. The option can be toggled on and off at any point within the options menu. Finding an area too hard in first-person? Turn it off. Likewise, if you want to see everything from the eyes of Sebastian, you can certainly do that. This free update is available to everyone that owns the game on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox...

  • CEO of Insel Games Sends Email Pressuring Employees to Write Positive Reviews (UPDATE: Valve Removes Insel from Steam)

    Update: Valve has removed all games published by Insel Games from Steam.
    It has been recently reported on Reddit that the publisher for this game, Insel Games Ltd., have been attempting to manipulate the user review score for their titles on Steam. We have investigated these claims, and have identified unacceptable behavior involving multiple Steam accounts controlled by the publisher of this game. The publisher appears to have used multiple Steam accounts to post positive reviews for their own games. This is a clear violation of our review policy and something we take very seriously. For these reasons, we are ending our business relationship with Insel Games
