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...

  • 3D Realms Doesn't Know When to Call it Quits and Claims It Still Owns Duke Nukem

    In response to the lawsuit made against the company by Gearbox Software, 3D Realms claims that it still has the right to complete and sell a game called Duke Nukem Survivor.

    Duke Nukem Survivor is apparently the Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction game that's been mentioned recently.

    In addition, 3D Realms claims that Gearbox doesn't even own the trademark to "Duke Nukem" anyway. They claim it was never part of the Asset Purchase Agreement for Duke Nukem Forever. And so 3D Realms does not go quietly into that gentle night, but kicking and screaming like a little brat. Not bad for a company that sat around doing nothi...

  • Microtransactions Made $352 Million on Consoles Last Year

    Microtransactions Made $352 Million on Consoles Last Year

    According to research conducted by Superdata, microtransactions accounted for $352 million in sales in 2013 just on consoles.

    Until now, several barriers contributed to the slow adoption of microtransactions on console: audience expectations, payment preferences and available options, game inventory. The retail model of shelling out $60 for a game has long been the dominant monetization method for consoles. Likewise, the system of first having to convert real money into, for example, Xbox Live points outside the game and then spending those points on an in-game item made for too many steps. But the Xbox One and
