Ubisoft CEO responds to open letter from employees, but group says “few points seem to have been addressed”

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has responded to an open letter published by employees earlier this week, and his response hasn’t gone down as well as hoped with those who work at the company.

Earlier this week, over 500 (now over 1,000) current and former Ubisoft staff members signed an open letter to the company, criticizing the French publisher’s failure to deliver proper change after last year’s scandal involving members of upper management.

Classic Final Fantasy has a bit of a ‘version problem’. When it comes to FF1 through FF6, there’s no real definitive release you can point to and tell players ‘that’s the one to play’. The new Pixel Remaster releases don’t solve this problem, but they’re certainly some of the easiest versions to recommend.

Tribes of Midgard Shift Codes: All working Midgard codes

Tribes of Midgard Shift Codes, or SHiFT Codes, are a carryover from Borderlands that Gearbox will roll out following the game’s release.

It’s not completely clear what Midgard Shift Codes will get you, but we have a few ideas based on previous Gearbox freebies. You’ll need to complete a couple of steps before you can enter the first code, though.
