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...

  • Valve to Put an End to Abuse of 'Upcoming Releases' Section on Steam

    Valve to Put an End to Abuse of 'Upcoming Releases' Section on Steam

    Hopefully this puts a stop to studios that game the system to always appear on the first page of upcoming releases.

    If you ever tried to look at the "all upcoming releases" section on Steam, you probably noticed that a lot of games appearing on the first couple of pages didn't actually have set release dates. A lot of them would appear to be vague windows of time that would, for whatever reason, still show up before games that actually had set releases planned in the coming days.

    It was terrible browsing the all upcoming release section on Steam, leaving most...

    A Cataclysm Hits Anthem, But Nobody Knew

    The end came not with a bang, but a whimper.

    Yesterday, BioWare and EA released the long-awaited Cataclysm update for Anthem. This had promised to be a major event in the Anthem timeline but it was met with some rather unfortunate setbacks when BioWare decided to push back nearly the entirety of their planned update release schedule for the game. The first major delay came back in April when several major features, including Cataclysm, were delayed until an undetermined time.

    It looks as though that time is now, at least as far as the Cataclysm event is concerned. Yesterday,...

This Solos Mode will run from August 13 through August 27 in Apex Legends. Best get your fill of it while you can, because who knows when or if it will come back afterwards. ...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Includes a 'Tamagunchi' Digital Pet

    A digital digital pet as it were.

    Infinity Ward managed to implement a real-time wristwatch feature in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This would allow you to see what time it was by actually glancing at your wrist while in game. That's kind of neat, but also rather useless.

    However, it was because of this basic feature that the team discovered they could do some rather out there ideas. For instance, they thought about stat tracking and other features you might find in a modern smartwatch or fitness tracker. Those idea just kept ballooning until eventually they hit upon...
