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...
 

Cyberpunk 2077 Announced for Google Stadia

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. Stadia owners will get to experience a story set in the open-world location of Night City. This megalopolis is filled with those obsessed with power, glamor, and the never ending pursuit of body modification.

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...

  • Thief Already 50% Off in Xbox Live Store Deal

    Thief Already 50% Off in Xbox Live Store Deal

    On March 28, the latest Thief title will go on sale on the Xbox Live Marketplace for the Xbox One for 50% off. This is in addition to 50% off Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, 33% off Call of Duty: Ghosts and 20% off Call of Duty: Ghosts Digital Hardened Edition.

    The big sale on Tomb Raider isn't too surprising since it's already a re-release title. The surprising news is most certainly concerning Thief and its 50% discount. This could be a worrying sign that the newest release in the franchise isn't selling anywhere near as well as was hoped.

    Call of Duty suddenly having a number of sales is also a bit telling. This is the franchise that kept steady at full price for years following...

    Insomniac Games Celebrates 20th Anniversary with a... Music Video?

    This year, Insomniac Games celebrates 20 years of being in the industry. As a result, they made a music video! Wait... what?!


    I would expect nothing less from the studio that brought us the Spyro franchise, Ratchet & Clank, and the upcoming Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One.

    If, for any reason, you want just the audio track for the song, you can grab it from Soundcloud....

  • Developer Says Steam Greenlight Going Away within a Year as Steam Becomes More Open

    According to Tweets (via CVG) made by Jonathan Biddle of Curve Studios, Valve may be getting rid of their Steam Greenlight service within the next 12 months.
    We met with Valve at GDC, and they say Greenlight will be gone within 12 months. They'll still offer curated space, but otherwise be open.
    This tends to go hand in hand with what Gabe Newell said a couple of months ago about wanting to make Greenlight go away as Steam evolves. This also ties in with how Valve is giving more control over games and sales to the developer instead of having to go through Valve. Let's just hope this new "openness" doesn't ...

    BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 2 is Here Plus a Launch Trailer

    The final part to BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea is here with the release today of Episode 2.
    BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode Two, developed from the ground up by Irrational Games, is the final content pack for the award-winning BioShock Infinite, and features Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that provides players with a different perspective on the BioShock universe. "I think the work the team did on this final chapter speaks for itself," said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. "We built something that is larger in scope and length, and at the same time put the player in Elizabeth's shoes. This

As a result, DICE is delaying the release of the new expansion just for PC owners. Console owners running with Premium will get their hands on Naval Strike on schedule (today).

    Ubisoft Shows First Video Glimpse at Assassin's Creed Unity

    The recent leak on Assassin's Creed Unity may have forced Ubisoft's hand in showing a trailer for the game long before they actually wanted to. Even still, this is a nice gesture on their part to give the fans what they wanted.

    We have been working on the new Assassin's Creed for more than three years and although we weren't quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC, it seems Abstergo are trying to force our hand! So here's a true first look at in-game footage from Assassin's Creed Unity. Stay tuned - we'll have many more exciting details for you in the months ahead!

    Far Cry 4 Lets You Ride Elephants

    The headline about Far Cry 4 should be enough to get you super excited for the upcoming sequel. The game is slated to be released in the first half of 2015 and will take place in the Himalayas, according to a story from Eurogamer.

    They learned that not only will you get to ride elephants, but it will be shown off in some capacity during Ubisoft's E3 press conference in June. It's apparently slated for release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC platforms.

    It's said that the gameplay will be quite close to that of Far Cry 3, including a focus on hunting animals. It will also apparently contain...

  • PSA: Wal-Mart Selling Titanfall Xbox One Bundle for $450

    PSA: Wal-Mart Selling Titanfall Xbox One Bundle for $450

    This may be going on for a limited time (or it may be a new permanent price, who knows) but Wal-Mart is offering the Titanfall Xbox One bundle for just $450. That's a savings of $50 from the $500 suggested price and the price of the bundle just about everywhere else.

    This bundle includes the Xbox One, controller, Kinect, a digital copy of Titanfall, and a month of Xbox Live Gold.

    Interestingly, Wal-Mart is also selling the non-Titanfall bundle for $450 (USD). Keep in mind that this is normally a $500 system here. Either this is just Wal-Mart trying to move some stock or it's a sign of...

  • Sony Suggests PlayStation 4 Demand will Outpace the Supply of the Console Into the Summer
