If you’re looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2, we can hardly blame you as it seems like half of the civilized world is looking forward to it at this point. But when you hear the people in charge of Rockstar boasting that the game has led to 100-hour workweeks for several employees in 2018, that may… dampen your enthusiasm somewhat. (For those of you who don’t feel like doing the math, that translates to almost 15-hour workdays every day… or 20-hour workdays and recovering sleep on the weekends.) So… yay, video games?

Ubisoft's new anti toxicity measures for Rainbox Six Siege kicked in this week and the results have been mixed. The new policy includes a list of forbidden words which when typed, result in an automatic ban. First time offenders cannot play any game mode, including custom matches, for ~27 minutes. Second and third time offenses last 2 hours while additional strikes lock the account until a manual review by the Ubisoft team. A tweet by the Ubisoft team captured their resolve for fighting the toxicity issue: But while the sentiment may be noble, such a harsh and automated process was bound to cause unintended consequences. Several users took to reddit to complain about how the overzealous chat filter has led to some amusing stories. One user was tricked into saying the word fag: I was just playing a ranked match when someone said in the chat, "What's the British term for a cigarette?", I fell for it and typed "They call it a fag". Got hit with that 26 minute ban as well. Waited for my … [Read more...] about The Weekly Raid: What Are Your Thoughts On Ubisoft’s Anti-Toxicity Push?
