Here’s how Bungie comes up with Destiny’s wacky weapon names

Bungie is known for making shooters, creating countless in-game guns over the years. In the Halo series, weapons had simple names: assault rifle, battle rifle, magnum. The most creatively named weapon in the first Halo was the Needler, and it only took a cursory glance at the gun to figure out how Bungie came up with that one.

Watch Dogs: Legion spec work is “utterly voluntary”, Ubisoft shrug and recommend

Ubisoft have defended their decision to source some of Watch Dogs: Legion‘s soundtrack through spec work, saying it’s “completely voluntary” for fans to create music hoping Ubi might pick it and pay them for their work. Ubi announced this “opportunity” last week, saying they will put ten fan-made tracks into the game. I suppose it is voluntary, as much as any other work is voluntary. My main objection isn’t even that Ubisoft are seeking spec work for their big-budget game, it’s that they’re using spec work as marketing to build brand engagement. They’re encouraging exploitative labour practices with a goal not much different to a competition offering Watch Dogs t-shirts as prizes for drawing cool hackers.
