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...

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...

  • Killing Floor 2 and Other Secret Titles Revealed with Steam Stats Page Glitch

    Earlier today, a little "snafu" on the Steam stats page may have accidentally revealed some unannounced games.

    A few of those games include Killing Floor 2 and Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate HD. There are also some obvious games sitting on that list with codenames, just in case something like this happened.

    What do you suppose Hickory might be? What about Waffles? Besides being delicious, that is. And seriously, who is that one guy playing Football Manager 2011 Review?! Again, many of these games are not public nor are some of them announced (yet). Some things may not ever be released, while others are an almost guaranteed bet. It's rather...

    Far Cry Compilation Celebrates 10 Years of Crying Far

    To celebrate ten years of the Far Cry series, Ubisoft is going to release a compilation of games from the series. It will include Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. This compilation will be released only on the PlayStation 3 on February 11. Unfortunately, this will not include the original Far Cry. It does, however, include all of the extras released for the games it does include. It includes all single player and multiplayer modes. Ubisoft also claims that Far Cry 2 is a "full digital re-master" of the original. I don't know what that means in this context either. It will retail for $39....

  • PlayStation 4 Hit 4.2 Million Units Sold in 2013

    PlayStation 4 Hit 4.2 Million Units Sold in 2013

    In a bit of a move to "one up" the competition, Sony revealed today that they sold 4.2 million PlayStation 4 units as of December 28, 2013. This follows the news from Microsoft, where they said they sold 3 million Xbox One consoles in 2013.

    Sony dropped this rather unsurprising bomb on those in attendance at its CES 2014 keynote today. This also follows news from "earlier" in 2013 that the company sold 2.1 million PS4 units by early December....

Check out some photos of the Bolt II below and then head on over to the official Bolt II website for more pictures and some fluff details about...
