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...

  • Killing Floor: Calamity is a Top Down Title for the Ouya

    Killing Floor: Calamity is a Top Down Title for the Ouya

    Tripwire Interactive released a spin-off title today that is exclusive for the Ouya. Yeah, weird isn't it? The game is a top down action title called Killing Floor: Calamity.


    Tripwire Interactive's VP, Alan Wilson, may have been busy hitting the rum eggnog early when he said the Ouya is "leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed." Huh, alright then.
    "We feel Ouya is leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed today and, as our history suggests with our successes with both Red Orchestra and Killing Floor, we're not shy

  • DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    It seems as though fans were more than eager to jump all over the early alpha release of the standalone version of DayZ on Steam. The game already picked up $5.1 million in sales in the first 24 hours with 88,000 players joining up in the first 12 hours.


    Those figures equate to over 172,000 copies of the game sold already. Considering that this game is listed as Early Access on Steam and is also very much in alpha status, that is quite the impressive feat.

    New Legend of Zelda Game Coming from Tecmo Koei - Hyrule Warriors

    The good news is that a new game is coming in The Legend of Zelda franchise for the Wii U! The odd news is that this new game is coming from Tecmo Koei and looks a lot like a Dynasty Warriors game but with Link.

    The tentative name is Hyrule Warriors and it features Link going around fighting a lot of enemies.


    It almost feels as though Nintendo is just throwing ideas at a wall and seeing what sticks to try saving the poor performing Wii U....

    Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will Include Better Visuals than PC Version

    Crystal Dynamics says that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will feature better visuals than even the PC version of the non-definitive edition. The Definitive Edition is slated for release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Sure, I'll bite. So what does Crystal Dynamics planned that will make it better than the already graphically superior PC version of the game?
    Speaking specifically to the differences between the Definitive Edition and the PC version, Amos stated that the next-gen versions of the game use upgraded character models for Lara and all of the major story NPCs in the game, in addition to the TressFX and higher-resolution
