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...

  • Ion Fury Leaves Early Access

    Ion Fury Leaves Early Access

    The 90s are kind of back.

    A modern release of an "old-school FPS" arrives today with the release of Ion Fury. This new game from Voidpoint, 3D Realms, and 1C Entertainment plays out a lot like the first-person shooter games of yesteryear. You have big, fairly open levels that reward exploration. These levels are packed with a ton of enemies, maze like corridors, and a lot of gib producing weapons of destruction.

    Today marks the release of the game on the PC as it leaves Early Access. You can pick up Ion Fury from either Steam, GOG, or the 3D Realms store for...

    Lead Producer on Anthem, Ben Irving, Leaves BioWare

    This probably isn't a good sign.

    Anthem has had its fair share of disappointment since even before the game was launched back in the far off time of February 2019. Today, yet another potential black mark can be added to the books. Lead producer for Anthem, Ben Irving, announced that he is leaving BioWare for another studio.

    This may not be a sign of anything, but it rarely ends up being a good sign when the lead producer on a project decides to quit and go elsewhere. BioWare Edmonton has already moved on to Dragon Age development while BioWare Austin was tasked with...
