Sweeping changes are promised as a result.

Voidpoint, the studio behind the just released Ion Fury, has apologized for a series of "incidents" wherein multiple developers were found to use transphobic, ableist, homophobic, and sexist language in the game's official Discord channel. This is on top of some homophobic language found within the game itself.

Over the weekend, a thread had popped up on gaming forum ResetEra that showed multiple instances where the developers had made transphobic remarks via Discord. Members of the dev team were also shown to make...
 

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...

    This week, Capcom confirmed that roughly 30% of their Vancouver studio were laid off due to a restructuring.

  • Subnautica Dev Fired Over Racist and Transphobic Remarks on Twitter

    Subnautica Dev Fired Over Racist and Transphobic Remarks on Twitter

    Simon Chylinski is a former sound designer that worked with Unknown Worlds on the recently released Subnautica. Chylinski was fired this week after many people on social media discovered his rather vile statements and behavior on his Twitter account. Remarks that very clearly show Chylinski holds a variety of racist and transphobic tendencies.

    I noticed these past few days a number of people voicing their disdain on Twitter for tweets offered up by Chylinski in the past. Some of the examples can be seen below.


    Examples of Chylinski total lack of empathy includes tweets about immigration (seen above) bringing "3rd world tier crime rates and IQ" to area...

    Square Enix Acknowledges Issues with Final Fantasy XV PC Benchmark

    The recent Final Fantasy XV benchmark for the PC seems to have had a few issues, as outlined by the team at Gamers Nexus. Among those issues were several LOD and culling issues that led to performance woes for a variety of hardware, especially if you were using anything but an Nvidia GPU.

    Square Enix notes that they are aware of many of these issues and promise that they will be working on the performance for the final release of the game on March 6, 2018.
    We wanted the benchmark tool to approximate the level of visual quality and performance you can expect from your PC environment when running FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION. A

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Rumors Provide New Details on Single Player and Multiplayer Including Battle Royale Mode

    A rumor that seemingly sprung up over night from a single outlet, perhaps sheds a few details on some of the gameplay features we can expect to see in Red Dead Redemption 2. Trusted Reviews published a rumor earlier today that suggests that Red Dead Redemption 2 will include the ability to play in first-person mode, the multiplayer will include a Battle Royale mode, and more. Trusted Reviews say that they first learned about a lot of these potential details back in August of 2017. It was only due to confirmation of some of the included details on the document by Rockstar's own marketing materials that Trusted Reviews feels confident enough to publish what they were told. Of course, this is still very much a rumor unt...

    Sony revealed many of the new features coming in soon to be released 5.50 system software update for the PlayStation 4. The biggest addition for many people, at least those with a PlayStation 4 Pro, will be the global supersampling mode. This will allow for those people that use a Pro on a 1080p TV to experience enhanced visuals on many games that don't already provide an enhanced visual mode.

    Let's take a look at the full outline of changes that Sony wants you to know about for 5.50. And no, there still isn't any way to change your name yet.

  • Hands On Gameplay Preview of Past Cure

    Hands On Gameplay Preview of Past Cure

    Back in January, I was offered the opportunity to try out an early build of the upcoming psychological thriller meets third-person action title, Past Cure. The build of the game I played was just two levels from the full game. At the time of the preview, the game was still very much in development at Phantom 8 Studio. Typically, when you play a game you notice that they tend to mesh all of their gameplay elements into a singular focus for the entirety of the experience. There usually isn't a very clear-cut change in tone and gameplay focus between two levels. That doesn't seem to be the case with Past Cure. Instead, there will be levels where the playable character Ian, relies on stealth, avoidance, and capacity to solve some fairly easy puzzles. All of these happen in a dark, creepy dream-world filled with visions and nightmares that don't ...
