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...

A game about an obsession with power is coming to Google Stadia.

CD Projekt RED announced today that Cyberpunk 2077 is also coming to Stadia, the cloud-based gaming platform from Google.

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...

  • Some Legitimate Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Incorrectly Banned

    Some Legitimate Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Incorrectly Banned

    Bethesda has gone on record with admitting that they made a few mistakes in a recent wave of account bans from The Elder Scrolls Online. The mass bans were carried out against alleged gold spammers, botters, and exploiters, but unfortunately a few legitimate players were caught up in that wave.
    As part of our continuing effort to combat gold spammers, botters and exploiters, we recently banned a number of accounts. After several players appealed, we were able to investigate the matter further and discovered some legitimate accounts got caught up in the sweep. We unbanned accounts last night,

  • Garry's Mod LUA Exploit Leads to Spread of "Coughing Virus"

    Garry's Mod LUA Exploit Leads to Spread of "Coughing Virus"

    Earlier today, some malicious code started to spread through many Garry's Mod servers. This code forced a server to push a .dll file to a user's computer. This would then spam the word "cough" to friends of the affected player and also through in-game chat. It would also change the affected user's name and also append exclamation points to the front of affected servers (so as to appear first on the server browser when sorting by name).

    This seems to have been the extent of the damages caused by this. The following is a censored version of the post that originally brought this exploit to the public's attention on the Facepunch forums.
    Some of our clients, and our server, recently got messed with by Chrisaster, or one of his buddies that go under the same name, or VIN, these include the files client_infect.lua, and server_infect.lua. Seems they do this through client uploads. Not 100% sure, but it seems they Hack into RCON (They can get your RCON password through clientside lua, even with client uploads disabled), put

  • Battlefield 1942 is Free on Origin... Again

    Battlefield 1942 is Free on Origin... Again

    Once again, EA is just giving away Battlefield 1942 through Origin. Last month EA gave out Dead Space as part of their new On the House program.

    This month it's Battlefield 1942 that's free, though their On the House page still lists Dead Space. So either this is a non-On the House free game and a limited time offer, or it's going to be an On the House deal, or it's a new permanent price reduction, or I have no idea what I'm talking about. No matter what, just go get the game since it's free and everybody should own this....

  • Final Fantasy 3 Might Come to the PC

    Final Fantasy 3 Might Come to the PC

    A listing on Germany's USK database shows that there might be plans to bring Final Fantasy III to the PC. The rating shows that the game has been approved for persons six years old and up.

    The original release of the game happened about 24 years ago now (I bet some of you feel really old right about now). It's seen a variety of re-releases across a number of different platforms. Let's just hope this is a legitimate filing and that we'll start to see this and more Final Fantasy titles popping up on the PC (even those that never had a PC release before *coughFF6,9and10cough*)....

  • Titanfall and PlayStation 4 Top the NPD Charts for March

    Titanfall and PlayStation 4 Top the NPD Charts for March

    Sure, Microsoft may have sold 311,000 Xbox One consoles to retailers in March, but the PlayStation 4 still sold more units. This is according to the latest NPD figures and a breakdown from

    On the hardware side of things, the PlayStation 4 "led hardware sales despite the Xbox One exclusive Titanfall topping the games chart." That means the PS4 sold above the 311,000 units that Microsoft moved with the Xbox One and managed to do so despite the release of Titanfall and a number of retailer specific price reductions on the console. Year over year, retail sales are up 3%, software sales are down 28%, and...

  • Xbox One Has Shipped 5 Million Units to Retailers

    Xbox One Has Shipped 5 Million Units to Retailers

    Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox One has shipped over 5 million units to retailers since its launch. That again is a figure that has shipped to retailers but not necessarily sold to consumers.

    There is quite a big difference between those two things. However, beyond that, Microsoft has also noted that March was a strong month for the Xbox One. They sold 311,000 units through the month, while the Xbox 360 sold 111,000 units. They also note that, on average, there are 2.9 games sold per Xbox One console. They also note that the Xbox 360 sold 2.7 million games in March and the Xbox One sold 1.4 million games. There...
