Ion Fury Devs Apologize for Numerous Sexist, Homophobic, and Transphobic Remarks

Sweeping changes are promised as a result.

Voidpoint, the studio behind the just released Ion Fury, has apologized for a series of "incidents" wherein multiple developers were found to use transphobic, ableist, homophobic, and sexist language in the game's official Discord channel. This is on top of some homophobic language found within the game itself.

Over the weekend, a thread had popped up on gaming forum ResetEra that showed multiple instances where the developers had made transphobic remarks via Discord. Members of the dev team were also shown to make...
 

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...

  • 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

    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,...

    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...

  • Solid Snake Joke Goes Too Far During Tekken EVO Finals

    Solid Snake Joke Goes Too Far During Tekken EVO Finals

    David Hayter is not pleased.

    During this weekend's Tekken 7 grand finals at EVO, a short video was played showing Solid Snake talking to Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada. Snake belted out, as only Snake could, a line about playing some "good ass Tekken" before the fake feed was cut.

    The video was not shown during the livestream, but it was captured by a number of people that were in attendance at the event itself. Initially, many people thought this was a teaser for the legendary soldier, Solid Snake, coming to Tekken. It wouldn't be that unusual if it were...
