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...

  • Sony to Give Early Vita Customers a Small Refund Over Deceptive Ads

    Sony to Give Early Vita Customers a Small Refund Over Deceptive Ads

    The FTC and Sony have come to a settlement over claims that Sony has not delivered on at least one of its promises during the early days of PlayStation Vita advertising. According to the early ads, Sony claimed that consumers could keep playing their PlayStation 3 titles on their Vita with "Cross Platform Gaming." Sony claimed that you could play a game on the PS3, pause it, and then pick up where you left off on your Vita. Well, you couldn't really do that except with some games that were designed with that functionality in mind. Even more, there are claims that Sony's promise of this Cross Platform Gaming led some to purchase the more expensive 3G version of the Vita in order to play the...

  • Ubisoft Finds a Loophole in Their "No More Post-Release Embargoes" for Reviews

    Remember when media outlets were upset with Ubisoft because a review embargo time was set for 12 hours after the game was actually released to the public? Remember how Ubisoft said they were totally committed to fixing that rather severe lack of thought and respect for the media and their fans?

    Well, they're sticking to their word with reviews for The Crew! There will not be a post-release embargo in place! Instead, Ubisoft has no embargo time since it seems as though they aren't giving out advance copies of the game to the media for review purposes. So, there could be a review up at midnight but that's assuming you're a-okay...
