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...

    BioWare Re-Confirms New Dragon Age but Delays Anthem

    BioWare says that they are still working on a new Dragon Age game. I'm sure many fans have been a bit afraid about the fate of the franchise ever since the tepid response to Mass Effect: Andromeda. Don't get me wrong, Mass Effect: Andromeda sold quite well according to EA themselves. It just happened to be panned by both critics and consumers alike, mainly due to its multitude of bugs, somewhat boring story, and poor mission design.

    Today's confirmation of more Dragon Age came from Mark Darrah, the Dragon Age executive producer.
    That is about the extent of the details that were provided. We have nothing mor...

    Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Trailer

    Sea of Thieves began its closed beta today on the Xbox One and PC via the Windows 10 Store. The only ways you could play this beta is if you pre-ordered or were given a beta key. To say the beta experience is encountering some rough seas may be a bit of an understatement. But hey, isn't that what proper betas are for?

    Even if you cannot get in to play the game right now, you can maybe watch the below trailer over and over again. You can at least pretend you're playing the game!
