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.

Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.

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."

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.

    Earlier today Nintendo announced Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, both for the Nintendo Switch. These games officially kick off generation eight for the long-running and still very popular franchise. These two games will be released this Fall and are (apparently) the first mainline titles to appear on a home console.
