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.

    PSA: Steam has a BAFTA Sale Going on Until Tomorrow

    The British Academy Games Awards (BAFTA) are being celebrated through a small sale on Steam. The sale claims it's on for 24 hours but I have no idea when it began. It should be safe to assume that you should buy what you want right when you see it instead of waiting.

    It includes such titles as Surgeon Simulator 2013, The Stanley Parable, Tomb Raider, Gunpoint, Brothers, and many more great titles.

    Again, the clock is ticking on these, so hurry up and check out the BAFTA sale page before the sale is no more.

    No, this one is a bit different.
    In This War of Mine, the focus is shifted away from military operations portrayed in most games. Instead, it is a dark survival game where players control a group of civilians trying to stay alive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, offering players time to craft, trade, upgrade their shelter, feed and cure their people. At night they must scavenge nearby areas in search for food, medicines,

    Flappy Bird Creator Dong Nguyen Set to Release Checkonaut This Month

    The creator of the sleeper hit Flappy Bird, Dong Nguyen, is readying a new game that may be released by the end of this month. It's called Checkonaut and is being billed as an "action chess game."

    Will this game suffer the same fate as Flappy Bird? It's anybody's guess right now. However, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Nguyen expanded upon his reasons for pulling the game.

    Part of the reason involves addiction. He equated the addiction some players had with Flappy Bird with the same addiction he faced with Counter-Strike. His studies suffered as a result.
    Nguyen estimated he was clearing $50,000 a day. Before long, Shuriken Block

  • Respawn Explains Titanfall's 48GB Install Size

    Respawn Explains Titanfall's 48GB Install Size

    The other day, someone from The Escapist said that the audio for Titanfall included every localized language file. Now that the game is out for everyone, it's a bit easier to see what your hard drive space is being taken up by.


    It seems as though that while there are a multitude of localized language files, the bulk of the audio size is indeed taken up by uncompressed audio. In speaking with Eurogamer, Respawn's Lead Engineer, Richard Baker, said that they use uncompressed audio to make it easier on lower end machines.
    "Yeah, basically when you download the game or the disc itself, it's a lot smaller than that," Baker
