"Photos from a news helicopter show what appears to be staff on top of the Ubisoft building.



La Presse has reported that heavily armed police forces are on the scene, with paramedics prepared to act. Bulletproof shields are being used."

Lethal Weapon comes to mind. The part where Riggs handcuffs the guy and jumps on the building with him.

What's this "we" you are talking about?

It's just some fringe lunatic who wanted attention.
If it was just that, there wouldn't be an article for us to discuss. Gamespot and Ubisoft is just as complicit, if not more for spreading this "insanity". It's just a matter if that fringe lunatic's agenda also fits the agenda they would like to push.

That is bullshit.

People have insecurities and discomforts about all sorts of things. If you want to create a realistic character of any kind, these insecurities need to be part of them, otherwise they are simply not believable.

I'm disappointed they caved to that bullshit activist nonsense.
That piss me off. Game makers need to grow a pair and stop caving in to certain people.

Anyway..... I wonder if Ubisoft got some feedback from the thug for real life experiences to incorporate into future games!? Lol

This is pretty close to the call for Baby Yoda to be canceled. Apparently last weeks episode (or the week before?) where he was eating eggs, is the equivalent of mass genocide.

I have always wanted to see through the eyes of a person who can get so offended from fictional pieces of work.

Welcome to what the tiny trophy movement has brought us........people who try to gather a mob because their cable internet was down for 12 hours and their antidepressant cocktail isn't designed to handle flare-ups of that level.......

I have to admit, Baby Yoda eating the eggs caught me off guard. I was like "WHAT IS HE DOING!?!??!!!!". lol
But he's a freaking baby, all he's thinking is, "egg food tastes good!" It's more of the Mando's fault as he is the "parent".
Not everyone is perfect, if they were, nothing would be believable

We don't go around punishing other people's small children when they break something of ours or take it, we go to the parents of the children (hopefully) .

A lot more than just game makers.

I think the world speaks as the majority but the minority has the loudest most obnoxious voice when it comes to pushing the human incompatible political correct agenda. When everyone is offended by everything possible you get this kinda hostage or shooting crap. We never had this kind of thing round the clock like we do now 30 plus years ago.
