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.

Mario Maker 2 degree turns World 1-1 right into a fiery nightmare hellscape

Have you been looking for the perfect place to start with Super Mario Maker 2? Well keep looking, because this might be the hardest version of Super Mario Bros. World 1-1 ever made. Named “1-1 but with a twist,” creator and Twitter user Sunny remade the first level from Super Mario Bros. with dozens of twirling fire bars. The “twist” makes the once elementary level nearly impossible to finish. It is enough to scare any newbie away from playing Mario possibly forever.
