Activision Blizzard sued by California over toxic, ‘frat boy workplace culture’

A California state agency is suing Activision Blizzard, the video game maker that produces Call of Duty, over claims of sexual harassment and discrimination. After a two-year investigation, the state’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing said in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court that Activision fostered a “ ‘frat boy’ workplace culture.” Executives sexually harassed women, the agency said, and male employees openly joked about rape and drank alcohol while engaging in “inappropr...

SmartRecruiters raises $110M at a $1.5B valuation to expand its end-to-end recruitment platform

The global Covid-19 pandemic had a chilling effect on a number of industries and their workforces, resulting in mass furloughs and layoffs. But now, with countries now taking steps back to “normal”, that has been leading, in many cases, back to a hiring surge. Today, SmartRecruiters, one of the companies that has built software to handle that process more smoothly, is announcing $110 million in funding to seize the moment. The funding, a Series E, is coming in at a $1.5 billion valuation, the co...

I’m loving the new Rocksmith beta, but definitely not uninstalling RS2014 yet

Ubisoft‘s holding a closed beta for its new Rocksmith title and I managed to get in on it. After a few hours checking out the new interface and game engine, I’m impressed. But I won’t be uninstalling Rocksmith 2014 Edition Remastered anytime soon. The new game’s called Rocksmith+. But from here on out I’m just going to call it the new Rocksmith because adding a symbol to a game’s name in the age of Google Search and SEO is just inviting misery and I don’t want to support it.

DRM Strikes Again: Ubisoft Makes Its Own Game Unplayable By Shutting Down DRM Server (techdirt)

It's not exactly a secret that we've been very anti-DRM here at Techdirt for some time. It's honestly perplexing how anyone can be otherwise. DRM has shown time after time to be of almost no hindrance whatsoever for those seeking to pirate video games, but has done an excellent job of hindering those who actually bought the game in playing what they've bought. Ubisoft, in particular, has had issues with this over the years, with DRM servers failing and preventing customers from playing games tha...

Mortal Kombat 11 Never Reached Its Potential

Mortal Kombat 11 lived a longer life than past NetherRealm Studios games, but not a happier one. After nearly eight months of deafening silence, NetherRealm announced it was focusing on its upcoming mystery title and won’t be adding any more DLC to MK11 in the future. But lacking content was never Mortal Kombat 11’s problem; the 2019 fighter was always overflowing with modes to play and things to unlock. The true issue was that it never got the right kind of support it needed to reach its full ...
