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.

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.

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...

    The financial report for Take-Two's "Fiscal Third Quarter 2014" was released today. I won't bore you with the finer details. All you need to take away here is that Take-Two pulled in GAAP net revenues of $1.86 billion. That's compared to their previous quarter where they only pulled in $415.8 million.

    So, why such a strong increase across the board? Well, Grand Theft Auto V had a huge hand in that, sure. There were, however, other big players for the company.

  • AMD Releases Catalyst 14.1 Beta Drivers with Mantle Support - Battlefield 4 Framerate Gains Benchmarked

    At long last, those with recent ATI cards can finally experience the framerate benefits that the Mantle API brings to the table. We're talking about some fairly substantial framerate gains in some cases over DirectX 11.

    First off, go pick up the AMD Catalyst 14.1 beta drivers and enable the Mantle API within the Battlefield 4 settings. It's recommended that you do a clean install of these drivers and not simply install over your old drivers. Installing over your old drivers with this release has been known to cause crashes and hangs.

    While you're downloading check out some of these framerate benchmarks conducted...

    The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 Launches on February 4

    Telltale's Twitter account revealed that the Xbox 360 version of the second episode for The Wolf Among Us will be released on February 5. The other versions, excluding iOS, will be released a day earlier on February 4.


    The above trailer does contain some partial nudity. But I'm guessing that since this warning was posted after the video, it's a little too late for this warning. Oh well, it's a digital boob, deal with it....

    Trove - Hands-on Gameplay Video from the Alpha

    I recently got into the Trove alpha from Trion Worlds. It's got a look similar to Minecraft and Cube World but the gameplay is quite different from both.


    The game is in a very, very early alpha stage of development. It has a long way to go as far as development is concerned, but I'll be sure to keep an eye on it and provide updates if possible of any major changes.

    You can sign up at the Trove website for your chance to get into the alpha or future beta....
