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...

    No Pre-loads for Borderlands 3 on Epic Games Store

    Just another launcher.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney says that there will be no pre-loads for Borderlands 3 on the PC through the Epic Games Store. If you have purchased the game, you will need to wait until the game is released before you can even download it. Those on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will not have this problem.

    Those of you who have somewhat decent Internet connections probably won't have to worry about waiting for too long, provided the download servers hold up. Those of you who typically need a couple of days to a week to download a modern game, I wish you all...

    Biomutant Getting Two Premium Editions

    Two premium editions for those of you with money to burn.

    If you aren't content with just paying about $60 for a video game, things like Premium Editions exist. More often than not, these releases include additional content, usually physical items, that you can sit back, admire, and think "yeah, I bought this."

    DayZ Getting Global Edit Because of Australia

    Bohemia wants to have just one version of the game.

    This past week, the zombie survival game DayZ was banned in Australia both at retail stores and then later from digital stores.

    The game has characters using morphine to help treat injuries. They player can also restore some...

  • Steam Workshop Items Need Approval from Valve

    Steam Workshop Items Need Approval from Valve

    But only for first-party titles from Valve.

    You may have already seen that news going around that items on the Steam Workshop must now be approved by Valve before they will appear for the public. This seems to include anything that you may typically find on the Steam Workshop, including custom maps, models, skins, sounds, and the like. This first showed up via a Reddit post on the Global Offensive subreddit.

    However, this approval process is not for every Workshop enabled game available on Steam. At least, not yet.

    Right now, this approval process is only...

    New 'Experimental' Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft CEO

    Open World? GAAS? Mobile? VR?

    The emotional rollercoaster that fans of the Splinter Cell series has been on for the past few years has been never ending, has had no chill, and frankly, it's gotten to be a wee bit tiresome. In May of this year, a new Splinter Cell was apparently "confirmed" and then it was later revealed to just be a joke.

    Last month, we again heard a rumor that a new Splinter Cell was actually in the works. However, that story from July says that Facebook is financing the game and that it will be a VR only title and exclusive to the Oculus...

    Tim Willits Joins Saber Interactive

    Former id Software director joins World War Z studio.

    Just last month, Tim Willits announced that he was parting ways with id Software after the end of QuakeCon. Well, QuakeCon has come and gone, and sure enough Tim Willits departed the studio just as he said he would. It wasn't yet clear where he would end up. All we knew at the time is that he was going to stay active in the industry.

    Today, the mystery was lifted as it was announced that Willits is joining Saber Interactive as their chief creative officer. Willits provided some insight into his move in an interview...
