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...

    First Developer Diary for The Dark Pictures - Man of Medan

    The first developer diary video for The Dark Pictures - Man of Medan was released today from Supermassive Games. You may already be familiar with Supermassive Games as they previously released the fantastic Until Dawn a few years back. However, it sure can't hurt to get their insight on their upcoming horror anthology.

    The Dark Pictures - Man of Medan is looking at a 2019 release for the PS4, XB1, and PC via Steam.
    The first Dev Diary showcases the creation of the menacing abandoned vessel that serves as the setting of Man of Medan. The developers describe how they formed the claustrophobic and foreboding atmosphere of the ship

  • Artifact is Out Now from Valve

    Artifact is Out Now from Valve

    Valve has released a new game. I hope you were sitting down for that one because that sentence probably knocked you on your ass and tea bagged you.

    Valve's Artifact has been released on Steam for $19.99 (USD). It's a card battling game based around Dota 2 characters, locations, and abilities. It was created alongside the famous designer Richard Garfield, so it has a high chance of being pretty damn good.

    We have a new trailer to show off with you today. In addition, there is another comic that you can read. This one is called "Call to Arms." Call to Arms also happens to be the name of the game's first set.
    The trailer gives a taste of the

  • Valve Released an Artifact Comic

    Valve Released an Artifact Comic

    Just two days ahead of the release of Artifact, Valve did what Valve does best and released a new comic. It's called "Prelude" and it serves as a prelude to their upcoming card battling game.

    A second comic called "Call to Arms" will drop on Wednesday. These comics "sets the stage for a series of events that will transform the world of Dota forever."

    So, are they changing the base Dota game as a result? Because if not, that seems like a kind of silly thing to say about Artifact, no? Anyway, go read today's comic, Prelude, at the Artifact website....

  • Black Mesa: Xen Trailer Revealed, Release Almost a Year Away

    Black Mesa: Xen Trailer Revealed, Release Almost a Year Away

    The Black Mesa team finally released a trailer for the Xen portion of their long in-development game. As you may recall, Black Mesa was "released" in a rather incomplete stage. I say "released" because even though it was added to Steam back in May 2015, it's still listed as an "Early Access" title. I also say "released" because the entire Xen portion from the original Half-Life wasn't included.

    But it's now 2018 and we finally have our first actual trailer for the Xen component. The good news is that the developers say Xen alone will be a roughly six hour long experience. The bad news, and you should have seen this one coming,...

  • Valve Delays Artifact Beta

    Valve Delays Artifact Beta

    Valve's beta for Artifact has been delayed until November 19. The beta was supposed to begin this month but that isn't happening. There is also concern that the game itself, which is still slated to begin on November 28, will also be pushed back due to the very late start on the beta.

    PC Gamer seems to be the first outlet to notice this delay. They spotted a tweet by Wykrhm Reddy, a known tester for Valve, in which the November 19 date was prominently featured for the start of the beta.
    This date was then confirmed by others who reported receiving emails announcing the November 19 release date for th...
