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...

Players will assume the role of V, a mercenary outlaw in search of an implant that could be the key to immortality. Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to customize your "cyberware,"...
 

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...

    Below Shifts from Xbox One Exclusive to a PC and Xbox Release

    Below from Capybara Games was slated to be one of Xbox One's major Indie showpieces. That was until very recently when the studio revealed that the game will also be coming to PC through Steam.


    Below is a roguelike (tired of that term yet?) that will find the player making their way through a variety of procedurally generated levels. As with any good roguelike, death is permanent.

    The super stylized title is playable this weekend at PAX East, so be sure to check it out if you're in attendance....

  • Rumor: Steam Controller Available in October or November

    Rumor: Steam Controller Available in October or November

    A source close to PC Gamer has informed them that Valve's Steam Controller will be released in either October or November of 2014. This claim comes from a "trusted hardware source with knowledge of Valve's Steam Machines." Their source continued on to say that the completion of the controller would be the "final piece that would precede the availability of most Steam Machines." That seems to indicate that the Steam Machines themselves would then start to roll out at the end of 2014. Finally, the source also said that they expect "about 500" games to be natively playable on SteamOS by the end of the ...

  • Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Gameplay Footage from PAX East

    Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Gameplay Footage from PAX East

    Last night, Roberts Space Industries held a live PAX East 2014 event to show off the upcoming dogfighting module for Star Citizen. Given the super alpha nature of the game, it didn't go quite as expected. There were crashes, both of the ship and of the game itself. However, a compilation of gameplay footage was gathered from the event from the live stream that should give gamers an idea of what the module will be like when it's released soon to backers. It's suggested you skip to around the 3:16 mark in the video to enjoy the footage. Unfortunately, there's nothing that can be done about the annoying crowd. ...

    Microsoft Invites You to Dig a Desert Landfill to Find E.T. for the Atari

    There is a long standing rumor, an urban legend if you will, that Atari buried all remaining copies of the atrocious game E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial somewhere in Alamogordo, New Mexico. This was back in 1983.

    Now, Microsoft and Fuel Entertainment are going to the Alamogordo landfill to try to dig up the truth. They want you to help.
    Fuel Entertainment brought the opportunity to Xbox Entertainment Studios, and now, as part of a documentary series (developed by Xbox Entertainment Studios and two-time Academy Award winning producer Simon Chinn and Emmy winning producer Jonathan Chinn, through their multi-platform media company, Lightbox), the team will excavate the

    Creative Assembly Talks Up PC Advantages for Alien: Isolation

    Alien: Isolation is Creative Assembly's upcoming survival horror title that obviously takes place in the Alien universe. In a recent interview with PCGH, the team talked about some of the advantages the PC version will have over the console versions.
    Different platforms afford different advantages. Modern PCs with high-spec graphics cards cannot be beaten for shear raw power. What this translates into are higher resolutions and frame rates, which are always good. Also we can afford to scale assets (geometric, textural, animation, etc.) to take advantage of the extra fidelity. With higher resolution and more raw power available tessellation
