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.

  • Lambda Symbol Possibly Revealed in Apparent Valve Winter Sale ARG

    Lambda Symbol Possibly Revealed in Apparent Valve Winter Sale ARG

    Valve might have hidden a bunch of secret clues in this latest Winter Sale of theirs. To make a super long story short, a bunch of people have been finding clues in backgrounds, web pages, and more during this latest Steam Winter Sale for 2015.

    In fact, they have gone so far as to unlock a special badge (seen below), which you can earn yourself (at least at the time of this posting). All you need to do is open up this Steam store link in Chrome, type in (without clicking anything ahead of time) the word "search", hit "enter" on your keyboard, and then input the password of "1v7531" into the new dialogue box that pops up. There you go, you have the Red Herring badge now. ...

  • Final Fantasy IX Coming to PC and Mobile Soon

    Final Fantasy IX Coming to PC and Mobile Soon

    Square Enix is finally bringing Final Fantasy IX to a platform outside of the PlayStation! In 2016, Final Fantasy IX will finally be released on the PC and mobile (Android, iOS) platforms.

    Square Enix notes that the classic RPG will be "coming soon" to Japan. Sadly, they did not yet reveal their plans, if any, for bringing the game to the States. I'm sure it will happen eventually. The game will include "high-definition graphics, newly added achievements, auto-save, high speed mode, and several game boosting features." I've been waiting a long time for this.

  • Just Cause 3 Multiplayer - From the People that Brought you Multiplayer in Just Cause 2

    Just Cause 2 has an absolutely fantastic online multiplayer mod that a group spent ages working on. What they did was no small feat considering they added in large scale online multiplayer to a game that had none to start with.

    Well, they're doing it again with Just Cause 3. That's right, Just Cause 3 Multiplayer was teased earlier today by way of a new trailer. The mod is not yet publicly released and probably won't be for some time. What is shown below is the progress that has been made in the "last few weeks."

  • Valve Claims 'No Unauthorized Actions' Took Place During Today's Steam Security Issue

    Earlier today, Steam went a little nuts. Since the initial story broke, it seems as though Valve has fixed the issue that exposed full names, addresses, and phone numbers of Steam users. The issue in question was merely "caching issue" that allowed Steam users to view the account details of other Steam users.

    Valve issued a brief statement on what happened to Kotaku.
    Steam is back up and running without any known issues. As a result of a configuration change earlier today, a caching issue allowed some users to randomly see pages generated for other users for a period of less than an hour. This issue

  • [UPDATED] Steam Security Issue Allows Users to View Private Account Details, Possibly Make Purchases, and More

    Update (6:03PM ET): It looks as though the issue is resolved with the Store. After a lengthy period of being offline completely, the Store pages returned and seem to be in working order.

    Of course, the extent of the damages from this afternoon's security breach are not yet known. We'll have more details are they are made available.

    Original:
    If you've been on Steam today, chances are you've already experienced this issue. If you log into Steam, you may see that you are "logged into" another user's account, but only on the Store page. This means you can view some random person's Wishlist, their friends, what games their friends want, and worse. What'...
