  1. Hundreds of Game Developers Sign an Open Letter to End Hate in the Gaming Community

    Be excellent to each other.

    It hasn't exactly been a great time to be a gamer lately—except for huge, gross gaming trolls, who seem to be having a blast taunting people, making threats, and generally being the worst. But those trolls are now the target of an open letter from the gaming community's creators to its fans, asking them to end intolerance for the good of everyone.

  3. Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 Contest a Far Cry From Good

    A disaster just waiting to happen.

    Ubisoft announces a contest for fans of Far Cry 4 to win a trip to play the game from the top of Mount Everest. This seems like a bad idea all around.

  4. The Voice of Ellie From The Last of Us Has A Few Choice Words For Ubisoft & Assassin’s Creed

    No arguments here.

    The best thing to come out of Ubisoft saying some very foolish things about the all-male roster in Assassin's Creed: Unity has been the outpouring of industry pros talking about it. Well, that, and the cosplay.

  5. Ubisoft Lacks Resources to Animate Women, but Hires a Parkour Expert for Assassin’s Creed

    #ParkourIsTooHardToAnimate?

  6. Cosplayers Recreate “Women Are Too Hard to Animate” Quote at GaymerX

    Boobs are googly, right?

    Hopefully these two cosplayers Anita Sarkeesian found at GaymerX—that's the LGBTQ fan-centric game convention that just wrapped up its second-ever annual event this weekend in San Francisco—will start a nationwide trend of dressing up as the dumb things content creators say about their (lack of) female representation. Now, could someone could loan me a couple of Barbie dolls and a set of prosthetic gills? I have an idea I want to try out at the next con.

  7. Is Watch Dogs Possible in Real Life? Kind of, Actually [Video]

    Who watches the Watch Dogs?

    Hacking isn't quite as easy as it's depicted in Watch Dogs, but the game's "you can hack anything" gimmick might be closer to reality than you realize. Geez, nobody tell Glenn Beck.

    So many pixels!

    Created by Maja Celine Maher of Noor Studios and inspired by the recent controversy surrounding Ubisoft's Assassin's Credd IV, this game jam has only one rule: your lead character has to be female. You've got four days to submit your game to the Jam on their itch.io website, so hurry!

  9. Sunset Overdrive Lets You Play As A Lady, Throws Major Shade At Ubisoft & Assassin’s Creed

    Apply lotion directly to that burn, Ubi.

    We already told you that you can play as a woman in the Xbox One-exclusive game Sunset Overdrive, but the folks at Insomniac Games want you to know it too. In the process, Insomniac throws Ubisoft right under the bus, dressing their female character just like an Assassin. Amazing. Take that, Ubi, and your lame excuses.

  10. A Mass Effect & Assassin’s Creed Animator Called Ubisoft Out On Their Misogynist Excuses

    And #WomenAreTooHardToAnimate is our new favorite hashtag.

    So remember how the Ubisoft developers blamed their lack of female characters in the Assassin's Creed Unity co-op on the "reality of production?" Yeah, that was the worst. Turns out we weren't the only people pretty upset about that lame excuse, because a prolific game animator has straight-up called Ubisoft out on it.
