Re: Governments do not like loot boxes!

(its like a modern gumball vending machine issue). Since every loot box gives you something, even if its not something you want, does that make it not gambling anymore? Fantastic comparison. I used to get so upset when I'd get a plastic ring instead of a "super bouncer." My parents always...

Re: Governments do not like loot boxes!

Companies intentionally develop their games to be addictive and at some point someone needs to step in and say that’s wrong. I already do this, both in my purchase choices and the choices I make for my kids (i.e. help them avoid garbage games, never set a credit card up to a game or online store, e...

Re: Governments do not like loot boxes!

Not to get into too political a discussion, but I am not a fan of loot boxes, but am less of a fan of government handling something that should be left to parents and markets. It was not the law that removed loot boxes from Star Wars Battlefront; it was the market. It is not really the law that keep...

Re: A good video to watch on the PS2 about it graphics and why it is more CRT focused/has more jaggies then rivals.

Probably like many of us, I have a large PS2 library, but its not my favorite console of the generation. Which leads to the slight paradox that, on paper, the PS2 was lord and master of the generation for sales and attach rate, but may have failed to have built that strong emotional connection like...

Re: Street Fighter V Arcade edition

What this tells me is you're just getting the original game on the disc with codes to download all of the extra stuff. That is completely bogus for a collector like me. Thoughts? Agreed. This is just a code and the original game, meaning when the store goes down in the future, it's just the origina...

Re: Predictions about the Death of Consoles

It may also be that the lifespan of these consoles seems to be so long. The last generation lasted how long? That helps consumers feel confident in their investment. Yes. Exactly. Most of the time "experts" in gaming media argue about when a console cycle lasts "too long." They ...

Re: Sega announces a new House of the Dead for the Arcades using Unreal Engine 4!

Oh wow I would be loving this, but as Zeta X mentioned, so sure if they could provide light-gun style controls. At this point though I'd think I'd settle for moving a cursor around the screen! I believe the more modern (i.e. Wii Motion Plus and later) gyro controls allow for lightgun type shooting ...
