RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS - FREE WHITE HOUSE MONTAGE

Recommended Posts

It will be the System Shock we never wanted...


Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

It's a hybrid TPS/FPS role based rpg.

 

It will probably come out 2019Q4-2020Q2

 

Hints suggest we might get an updated cinematic trailer this E3.

 

It won't be anything like any System Shock from what I can tell.

We already got System Shock when we got the new Prey. Which means we are just waiting for a decent game where Native American mythology clashed with alien invaders.

On the bright side, the new Prey was a wonderful game.

An aggregation site, which lists games based on how they milk player has gone live few days ago. So if you decided to never ever buy a game, which contains lootboxes, this makes your gaming life easier :)

 

https://microtransaction.zone/

 

It has very good search engine and 9 different categories of milking.

 

Video "review" of the site:

And **** hit the fan in Belgium :o

 

Overwatch, FIFA 18 and CS:GO have to remove lootboxes, because they are in violation of Belgium's gambling law, or face Fines or even Prison!!!

 

*drops jaw*

 

EDIT: Also someone in comments pointed out, that the official statement also calls FIFA (the organization not the game) to take a responsibility and force license holders to not include lootboxes in their games.

Didn't watch the video, but here's some more info based on the original article.

 

It should be noted that they currently only looked at 4 games, the three mentioned above and Star Wars: Battlefront 2. The delicious irony is that Battlefront 2 was the only one not to violate the gambling laws... (note that this was most likely because they looked at the state of the lootboxes after EA made changes due to customer outrage...)

 

Another possibly important tidbit from the original article (in Dutch) is that this research was done on explicit request of the Minister of Justice, Koen Geens. Fines can go up to 800.000 Euro with prison sentences of up to 5 years. Both of which can be doubled when minors are involved.

 

Also from the original article are the "rules" (probably heavily simplified for the sake of the article) the gambling commission uses to determine whether something is gambling (tried to translate as literally as I'm able):

  • there has to be a game element
  • there have to be certain stakes that lead to gains or loss
  • there needs to be a factor of chance

There is no mention of there needing to be an in-game advantage to qualify (eg. cosmetic lootboxes are not necessarily in the clear), but I wouldn't draw any conclusions about that just based on the article.

Everybody(including me) are cheering over the ban of loot boxes. A great move. Just remember that we won't be so happy once they apply the same rules to 'violent video games'.

I convince my younger brother to by a PS4 and the first games he buys are Fifa 18 and Battlefront 2.  :getlost:

 

Blocked him...

 

Hey now, don't be an armchair grognard elitist.

 

At least it wasn't Destiny 2.

Maybe it's because I'm an informed consumer, but I just don't understand when people are drawn to the ultimate dregs of societies output.

Not sure what one has outstanding with the other. There is a reason why gambling is regulated pretty much everywhere whereas violence in media isn't: there's ample evidence about the harmfulness of the former and none for the latter (quite the contrary, as far as I'm aware).

I'm trying to find someone from who I can bum a PS4 to play God of War. No way am I buying a console to play one game.

That wasn't my point, it's buying into clearly anti-consumer products.

Thing about the lootboxes is that after all the complaints Battlefront 2 was found to be the only game out of four complying with Belgium's gambling rules. Ironic, EA could get busted for FIFA18 but not for the game everyone actually complained about.

 

Everybody(including me) are cheering over the ban of loot boxes. A great move. Just remember that we won't be so happy once they apply the same rules to 'violent video games'. 

 

They already do that though- that's basically what PEGI is, applying rating laws (the censor) to video games. We have some games outright banned here such as Manhunt as they didn't pass the censor. Even in the US there's a lot of 'soft' censorship from Walmart/ MS/ Sony

 

Ockers now have a refund facility that isn't limited to 2hrs either thanks to their ACCC, and the refund facility only exists at all due to Euro/ Aus/ NZ consumer protection laws being habitually broken by Valve.
