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...

    Beamdog Issues Statement About Baldur's Gate and New Transgender Character

    The new expansion for Baldur's Gate called Siege of Dragonspear introduced a transgender character. Because the Internet is full of intolerant individuals, the game has been slammed in user reviews and on social media because... I'm not really sure why. I can't honestly wrap my mind around why these people are so far up their own asses that the introduction of one transgender character sets their very sheltered world on fire so much. All I can gather from this is that those complainers are bigoted assholes who's only defense to anything pushing for more equality in the world is the tired and absurd line of "the 'SJWs' ruined this!" However, Beamdog has certainly heard the most vocal of said assholes, which has prompted the CEO of Beamdog, Tr...

    Hand of Fate 2 Announced for Early 2017 Release

    Defiant Development announced Hand of Fate 2 for a Q1 2017 release on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
    Like the original Hand of Fate, the sequel will require players to overcome trials built from collectible cards handed out by the dealer. A new map based meta-game allows players to discover and unlock those challenges in completely new ways. Gamers are tested through third-person combat, dangerous exploration, tense minigames, deck-building and Dungeons & Dragons-style decisions. Although players previously faced the dealer's traps on their own, adventurers can earn and fight beside companions in Hand of Fate 2. Companions offer support in combat, provide exclusive options in the RPG portion
