Seriously, all the trigger warnings.

Ubisoft got in some hot water last year over the same kind of allegations, and they made little effort to make their employees feel safer. Hopefully they're next on the lawsuit train.

and they have the nerve to release a statement denying everything— not surprising but still so disgusting that they’re trying to defend their position and just continue on as if nothing’s wrong :t--.-:

It reeks of the standard "we've investigated ourselves and found ourselves innocent."

I heard someone say HR is more for protecting the business rather than protecting its employees, and I think it is all the more true in this case. What those people *had* to endure is absolutely sickening...

I got an iPad as a Christmas/birthday gift this year (it came early in the mail today :D ). I'm so out of touch with Apple that it took me 5 whole minutes to figure out which app icon was Safari lol! :lol:

What? you mean for Genshin? who is complaining and why exactly? I'm actually excited for everything that is upcoming from them. We finally are getting content and tons of it and more festivals and events with free resources and free stuff. All of that is great imo. Am curious about the complaint thou?

Mostly people complaining that it's 'immersion breaking' (though I've seen some people point out that the ones complaining probably haven't really played these kinds of games before and don't realize that nothing about it will be considered canon or involved in the game's story, just kind of existing in it's own little bubble.) I've also seen some saying that they just don't like the different art style for the character in question or that it's another -element- -weapon- type character, which y'know, fair enough I guess :t-shrug:

Basically just people thinking way too hard about it lol

Yeah those are the people I just ignore. I will read what they say and then I'll just go along my way and enjoy stuff anyway. I never thought they would do a collab with that specific game to be honest, am surprised. But I saw what they posted on Twitter and it looks neat and cute. So I'll just wait till then and just enjoy and have fun ya know? It's a game it's meant to be fun and it's fantasy and stuff.

There's a muscle in my neck doing a...twitchy thing.

It's probably fine :derp:
