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...

  • Star Citizen Developer Responds to Crytek Lawsuit

    Star Citizen Developer Responds to Crytek Lawsuit

    A few weeks back, the world learned that Crytek was suing Cloud Imperium Games, the development studio behind Star Citizen. Crytek filed a lawsuit in the California District Court and claimed that CIG has not lived up to the terms of their initial agreement to use CryENGINE for Star Citizen. The claim says that the license covers one game and one game alone, and they feel as though Squadron 42 is a separate game and needs a separate license. Crytek's suit also made the claim that logos, trademark notices, and copyright information were improperly removed from all Star Citizen marketing materials. At the time of the filing, CIG said that the lawsuit was without merit since they ...

    Steam Hits New Record - Surpasses 18.5 Million Users Online at Once

    Yet again, Steam has hit another new milestone. The online distribution platform had over 18.5 million people logged in at one time yesterday. This is not only a new record for the platform, but it's a new record by a long shot. The previous record was a decent amount under 18 million people.

    The record was hit on Saturday, January 6 around 10AM (ET). Just a few months ago the top concurrent users logged in count was 15 million. It's seen a relatively steady increase of about a million additional users each month since. The exact peak found 18,528,722 people logged at once. Do keep in mind that n...

    Overwatch Update is Going to Nerf Mercy Yet Again

    Right now on the PTR for Overwatch, nerfs are incoming for both Mercy and Junkrat. The nerf for Junkrat isn't a huge deal, but man is Mercy ever getting beaten with the nerf sledgehammer over these last few updates.

    Junkrat sees a reduction in the Concussion Mine damage the further you are from it. Alright, that makes sense. Mercy's nerfs are more... yikes, especially when combined with other recent changes to her abilities.

  • New AMD Alpha Drivers Fix DirectX 9 Games

    New AMD Alpha Drivers Fix DirectX 9 Games

    Another recent update to the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition drivers (I seriously hate that stupid name) broke DirectX 9 functionality in a number of older titles. Broken in the sense that you couldn't play some of these older games. Thankfully, AMD just released a new alpha driver version for their video cards that fixes it.

    The 18.1.1 Alpha release of the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition (-_-) should fix those DirectX 9 issues right up.

    Mad Catz is Back with New PC Hardware

    Last April, we reported that Mad Catz was no more. The studio had filed for bankruptcy following poor sales, namely from the lackluster sales of their Rock Band 4 peripherals. It didn't really help that they were the co-publisher for the game which failed to make waves as the franchise did back in its heyday.

    However, Mad Catz is back. The company announced today that "Mad Catz is back in the game." Yes, the company that made your favorite third-party gaming peripherals is on the scene once again with some hot new PC gaming hardware. The announcement says that the company is back with new ownership and "a new attitude."
