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...

  • Lag Switching Also Returns to Halo 2 Anniversary

    Lag Switching Also Returns to Halo 2 Anniversary

    The old engine and old visuals aren't the only thing back from Halo 2. Lag Switching, or Standbying, makes its return to Halo in Halo 2 Anniversary from the Halo: Master Chief Collection. I suppose this goes hand in hand of this being a completely faithful port of the original game and engine.

    Don't know what Lag Switching is or you haven't run into it yourself yet? First off, consider yourself lucky. Secondly, read this short bit from the Halo Nation wiki.
    Standbying, also known as Lag Switching, was one of the first forms of cheating used in Halo 2. This cheat, which could only be performed by the connection host,

    Half-Life 2 Turns 10 Today

    On November 16, 2004 Half-Life 2 was released. Happy birthday to Half-Life 2! Valve curiously makes no mention of this fairly significant occasion. Perhaps it's worse than we thought! Perhaps instead of being able to just count to 3, they've simply forgotten about "Half-Life" entirely! Oh no... All kidding aside, Half-Life 2 is still a great game. You should probably play it if you haven't already. Feel free to share your favorite story about Half-Life 2. Maybe tell everyone how you were in college and stayed up stupidly late just so you could play Half-Life 2 on the new Steam platform, wearing headphones ...

    DirectX 12 Will Not Appear on Windows 7

    AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist, Richard Huddy, said that DirectX 12 will not be supported by Windows 7 and below. Huddy made this reveal while speaking at a PDXLAN presentation earlier this month.
    "It's a very, very popular operating system.

    "One thing that's not going to happen to it is DX12. Yup, DX12 is not coming to Windows 7."
    This comes following a brief snippet where he notes that Windows 7 is still the most popular operating system at present, occupying 52% of all Microsoft OS users. He even notes that the 52% figure is actually growing despite the availability of Windows 8.1. DirectX 12 will be built into Windows 10 when it...
