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...

    Sven Co-op 5.0 - New Trailer and Upcoming Stand-Alone Free Release on Steam

    A new trailer for Seven Co-op's 5.0 update was released today. The trailer shows off the new features coming in the update along with news that the game will soon have a stand-alone release on Steam!

    Three Minute Trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division is Looking Really Good

    Ubisoft released a new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division today. The trailer is a mix of cutscenes and gameplay and it actually looks really damn good. The blend of RPG genre with action is slated for release March 8.

    There is still a beta coming up, though a release date for that has not yet been revealed. Xbox One owners have been able to play at least one (possibly two?) closed alphas for this already.

  • Origin Access Announced by EA for the PC

    Origin Access Announced by EA for the PC

    EA Access is quite popular on the Xbox One, so it just makes sense that a similar program found its way to other platforms. The next stop is the PC and instead of calling it "EA Access" they are instead calling it "Origin Access" to go hand in hand with their PC distribution platform.

    For $4.99 (USD) a month, Origin Access will give you access to older EA titles to play until your heart is content (or your subscription expires), early access to upcoming EA titles, and 10% off of purchases made through Origin. Some of the games that you can play right now through the Vault include Battlefield 4 Digital...

  • Father Blames EA and Microsoft for 17-Year Old Son Amassing $8K Xbox Bill

    Father Blames EA and Microsoft for 17-Year Old Son Amassing $8K Xbox Bill

    Lance Perkins is disgusted at the near $8,000 (CAD) bill he received for purchases made by his 17-year old son in a recent FIFA release on the Xbox platform. Perkins received a credit card bill for $7,625.88 after his son purchased multiple in-game purchases for the game.

    His son, being of an age where he should know better, fed his father a line about how he had no idea that it wasn't just a one-time fee.
    Perkins said he had given his son a credit card for emergencies or to make purchases for the family's convenience store. Although his son confessed he had been using the card illicitly, Perkins said his son, too, was truly shocked at how much he had spent. "He thought it was a o
