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...

  • Games with Gold is 'Fundamentally Different' Than PlayStation Plus, Says Xbox's Phil Spencer

    During a talk at this weekend's SXSW, Microsoft's Phil Spencer said that the Xbox Games with Gold program is "fundamentally different" when compared to "other programs" since it allows members to keep games regardless of whether or not they pay for a subscription.

    Spencer is obviously referring to Sony's PlayStation Plus program without directly mentioning the competition by name.

    Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home is slated to come out on "consoles." The latest blog entry from The Fullbright Company wasn't too specific on which consoles they meant, but I'm going to assume something with "Xbox" and/or "PlayStation" in the name. I know, call me crazy.


    Midnight City is to thank for the console version of this game that seems to have really divided the gamers of the world on whether or not it's good. Both teams plan to release more specific details on this "console" release later on down the road....

  • Newegg Giving Away the 'Ultimate Titanfall Gaming Experience' Valued at More than $11,000

    Titanfall is slated to be released tomorrow for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC platforms. To mark the occasion, Newegg is holding a special Titanfall Sweepstakes that will see over $11,000 worth of prizes being dished out to the lucky winners.

    They're calling it the "ultimate Titanfall gaming experience" and given what the grand prize includes, that description sounds rather spot on.

    The grand prize winner will receive:
    • Custom-painted Titanfall themed desktop PC (CyberpowerPC Intel Core i7 4960x (3.6GHz), 16GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, AMD Radeon HD 7990 6GB, Windows 8.1)

  • Most of Titanfall's 50GB Install Size is Taken Up by Localized Language Audio Files

    Allegedly, most of the 50GB install size for Titanfall is due to almost 35GB of audio files. For some unknown reason, Respawn and EA have decided to include every localized language pack into one install. That means that no matter what language you speak, you will have every language included in your download and install of the game.

    This comes from a user on the Escapist forums. I do not have the game myself and cannot verify these claims but he did provide a couple of images as proof. The first is seen above from the unpacking process. The second one, below, shows the language directory.

    Yes, that ...

    In a statement issued to Polygon, a Sony rep did not really comment on the shortage but instead said that the camera is in high demand.
    "While we do not comment on the sales figures, shipment or monthly production quantity, PlayStation Camera remains in high demand, and we've been pleased with the camera's popularity among PlayStation 4 owners. We continue

  • EA Says Battlefield 4's Troubled Launch Did Not Damage the Franchise

    EA Says Battlefield 4's Troubled Launch Did Not Damage the Franchise

    Blake Jorgensen, the CFO of EA, said that Battlefield 4's massive number of issues have not damaged the brand.
    "We haven't seen any damage," Jorgensen said today at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media &, Telecom Conference in San Francisco. "Clearly we're very focused on protecting that brand." The game has sold well and continues to sell well, he added.

    He says that consumers have been "very responsive" to the patches that DICE has released so far. I'm not exactly sure that's the right phrase being used there.
    "We've also tried to provide extra content to the consumers to make sure they keep coming back and playing the
