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...

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update Introduces Fake C4 Planting (November 6, 2013)

    An update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released tonight. Among the many changes, changes have been made to the way the C4 is planted in maps. It now features an audible tune that everyone can hear but only the player planting will be able to hear the code typing sounds. This allows for the possibility of fake planting, just as CTs can fake diffuse.

    There are more changes to the sound design, fixes to the maps, UI, and more.

    Changelog for CS:GO for November 6, 2013

    GAMEPLAY - Changed C4 planting sounds based on pro feedback. When planting the bomb, it plays an initialization sound that everyone can hear, but ONLY the player planting will hear the code typing sounds. This makes fake planting possible (similar to fake diffusing as a CT). - All items now follow the same pick up sound rules (grenades,

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update Fixes Grenade Physics and Adds Live Spectator Mode - October 10, 2013

    Tonight's update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive addresses a few fairly significant issues. First up is a fix for how grenade physics interactions are handled when they hit players. The other is an improved bomb planting animation. In addition to these fixes, the CS:GO team added a Watch menu that lets you spectate live matches, similar to what is done with Dota 2!
    GAMEPLAY - Improved grenade physics interaction with player models. Grenades bounce off player hitboxes instead of the overall player bounding volume. - Improved bomb-planting player animation to prevent unintentionally standing when the plant completes. (Thanks Friberg!). - Re-added support for alternate firing accuracy. This effectively buffs burst fire
