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...

  • PUBG Teams Up with Tera and Resident Evil 2 in Bizarre Crossover Events

    PUBG Teams Up with Tera and Resident Evil 2 in Bizarre Crossover Events


    In a world where Tetris 99 exists, nothing in the world of battle royale surprises me anymore. Case in point: Today, En Mass Entertainment announced that there is a crossover event between TERA, an action oriented MMORPG, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the popular battle royale game not called Fortnite or Apex Legends.

    This collab will run for an entire month beginning on March 5 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This event will find Tera players "dropping-in and engaging PUBG-style BAMs." I don't know what a "BAM" is.

  • Assault Android Cactus Hits Nintendo Switch March 8

    Assault Android Cactus Hits Nintendo Switch March 8


    The colorful twin-stick shooter, Assault Android Cactus, is hitting the Nintendo Switch on March 8. You may recall seeing our review for it when it originally released on the PS4 in 2016 where we found it to be a largely enjoyable game. It also came out for PC in 2015 and Xbox One in 2017.

    The Switch release will include Campaign+, which reimagines the original 25 stages with new enemy waves, dynamic transformations, and "more intense boss fights that provide a tough twist for even the most seasoned Cactus veterans." The team says that the Switch release still runs...

    Tech Support: Error Unknown Release Date Announced


    Time. To. Hack. That is precisely what you'll be doing come February 27 when Tech Support: Error Unknown releases on the PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and other major retailers.

    The game begins with you taking up a position of a new member of the IT department for Quasar Telecommunications. This company is a "multinational-juggernaut of a corporation." As the game isn't a simulator, this isn't where the story ends. Instead, players will soon find out that something is afoot at Quasar. Soon, you're knee-deep in a cyber tug-of-war between Quasar and the Tech Support...

  • Dwarf Slayer Character Reveal for Warhammer: Chaosbane

    Dwarf Slayer Character Reveal for Warhammer: Chaosbane


    The first of four playable characters was given a reveal trailer today for Warhammer: Chaosbane. The character is a dwarf and they are a Slayer. I wanted to clear that up because the headline reads that the character is a slayer of dwarfs and that's just not right.

    Their name is Bragi Axebiter and they have taken up the oath of the Slayer. Having taken up this oath, he vows to cleanse his honor by dying in combat against a formidable adversary. Warhammer: Chaosbane is slated to be released on the PS4, XB1, and PC starting June 4. Those who get the more expensive Magnus Edition...

  • Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers

    Epic Games Suing Fortnite Live Event Organizers


    This past weekend, a little Fortnite themed event was held in Norwich. The event, called Fortnite Live, charged event-goers around $20 (USD) to enter the event that included a whopping four go-karts, a climbing wall, and areas to play Fortnite.

    From multiple accounts, the event was a rather large disaster. The various activities were severely lacking. People had to wait in line in the cold just to get in. In total, around 2,800 people attended the event in which they were mainly charged a lofty fee just to play Fortnite, a free-to-play game. Shortly after the end of the event,...
