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.

Get ready for more Spider-Man.

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...

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    When Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out, it was largely praised with the exception of the boss fights. No matter how you played the game, the boss fights were nothing more than actual fights with little to no means of utilizing stealth or any of your non-lethal abilities. That was somewhat fixed in the GOTY edition but it wasn't as good as it could have been.

    Now, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks like it will allow you to tackle bosses to suit your play style. The latest issue of OXM has a nice bit of information from Gameplay Director Patrick Fortier and the Narrative Director Mary DeMarle, where they explain how the boss fights...

  • China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    At long last, China is lifting its ban on making and selling video game consoles within its borders. This will now allow companies like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft to sell their consoles to retailers who can then sell the systems to end consumers, something that they haven't been able to do since 2000 when these restrictions first went into place.

    Prior to this move, China restricted the sell of game consoles to a small area called the Shanghai Free Trade Zone. Now, they are free to make and sell consoles throughout the entirety of China.
