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.

    Capcom Promises Fix for Resident Evil Village Performance Issues

    Capcom is pushed into action after hackers release a better performing version.

    This week, a cracked version of Resident Evil Village was released by Empress. With it came word that this cracked release pretty much eliminated the very severe and very apparent framerate dips and hitching found in the official release of the game. The culprit seemed to be a double whammy of DRM that Capcom implemented into the game: Denuvo and Capcom's own DRM system.

    The hitching and framerate...

    An earlier report about the upcoming Wakanda campaign for Marvel's Avengers said that the new content would take players about 25 hours to complete. This report, presented by Entertainment Weekly, claimed that the 25 hours would be in addition to the content available in the base game.

    Unfortunately, that seems to be a misinterpretation by the person who wrote the article. Square Enix clarified what was actually meant by this "25 hour" remark....

    It's got Spongebob. It's got the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It's got Reptar.

    Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is about as close as you're going to get to a Nickelodeon themed Smash Bros. game without actually being a Smash Bros. game. Unlike Smash Bros., which are only ever released on Nintendo platforms, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch in Fall 2021.

    Apex Legends Cross-Progression Development Slows Due to Recent Hacks

    It's almost like DDoS'ing is a bad thing done by bad people.

    Respawn says that due to an influx of cheaters and DDoS attacks occurring in and at Apex Legends, the team has had to change up some development plans for the battle royale title.

    Game director Chad Grenier says that work on cross-progression has been slowed down as a result of the team having to deal with hackers of all kinds. Grenier made this little fact known in a response to a tweet that asked him for an...
