It's real and it's perhaps worse than you could have ever imagined.

Last week, Activision Blizzard was sued by the state of California after the state conducted a two-year long investigation and found countless cases of sexual harassment and discrimination at the company. Included in the legal filing by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing was a mention of the "Cosby Suite."

Today, while Blizzard employees were staging a walkout in support...
 

Activision Blizzard Sued by California After Two Year Investigation into Rampant Sexual Harassment

The harassment is so bad it drove at least one person to suicide.

After a two-year long investigation by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the state has filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard due to the constant sexual harassment that female employees have been subjected to over the years. According to a report from Bloomberg, Activision Blizzard is said to foster a "frat boy" culture.

This culture, left unchecked and unpunished for...

Valve Announces Steam Deck, A Handheld PC Starting at $399

This new device is the first in a new series of handheld PC from Valve.

Back in May 2021, a rumor came out suggesting that Valve was working on a new handheld PC device called the SteamPal. While that is partially true, the one thing that didn't stick through to the end was the name. These devices are officially called Steam Deck and they start at a pretty affordable $399 (USD) MSRP.

Valve says that Steam Deck is a "powerful all-in-one portable PC." It has a...
 

Japanese Talent Agency to Blame for Lack of Judgment on PC

Sega is unable to reach an agreement with the talent agency.

If you found it weird and annoying that Judgment wasn't coming to PC, you certainly weren't alone. The game was released for the PlayStation 4 in 2019 and came to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and even Stadia in April 2021. At the time, Sega said they had no plans for a PC release.

A little while later, Sega announced a sequel to Judgment called Lost Judgment. This too was also planned for most platforms but...

  • Final Fantasy 14 Icon Changed After Complaints from Users with Trypophobia

    Final Fantasy 14 Icon Changed After Complaints from Users with Trypophobia

    The Sage icon has been adjusted every so slightly.

    The Sage job is one of the new ones coming to Final Fantasy 14 as part of the upcoming Endwalker expansion. This is a healer class that can fight with four floating blades called nouliths. The icon for the Sage depicts these four weapons, but the original design came with one unexpected side-effect.

    Apparently the original icon for the Sage was making some players feel "uncomfortable or fearful." The reason for...

    SkateBIRD Delayed Until September

    It's not much of one, but it is still delayed nonetheless.

    Back in June, we shared the news that SkateBIRD was slated to be released on August 12. Sadly, that release date has been pushed back ever so slightly. The new release date is now September 16. So yeah, it's not a big delay but it's one that I felt was worth sharing if you were looking forward to being a skateboarding bird.

    Glass Bottom Games founder Megan Fox shared this news a little bit ago today via Twitte...

    Battlefield 2042 Short Film 'Exodus' to Premiere on August 12

    A new short film is coming soon.

    DICE and EA were probably thinking: "How do we tell a story without having a single player story campaign?" The answer? Tell the story within the multiplayer component for Battlefield 2042. Oh, also let's make some short films based on the game that also provide some lore. A lot of games do this, including EA's own Apex Legends, so why wouldn't it also work for Battlefield?

    Anyway, there is a new short film coming on August 12...

    Shocking almost nobody...

    In a new report from Bloomberg, it looks like Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 game, Horizon Forbidden West, has been hit with a delay. This will probably come as a surprise to literally anyone as this year and the last year have been the season of delays thanks to working from home and other complications from COVID-19.

    Modders Pull Grand Theft Auto Mod 14-years in the Making Over Takedown Fears

    Say goodbye to GTA United.

    Take-Two has been on a rampage lately with takedown notices for multiple Grand Theft Auto mods. The company has issued takedowns on mods that have existed for over a decade for games like Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas. The company really hasn't said why they've suddenly taken issue with these mods after so long.

    Out of a fear of receiving a takedown notice on their own mod, the creators of the 14-year-old San Andreas mod, GTA...
