Hmmmm ok, I see.

A Rolling stone carries no MOSS: The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London, England in 1962. The first stable line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Mick Jagger (lead vocals), Keith Richards (guitar, backing vocals), Bill Wyman (bass), Charlie Watts (drums), and Ian Stewart (piano). Stewart was removed from the official line-up in 1963: Hideo Kojima's birthday is 23rd August 1963!!!! Soooooooo:

Its a picture of what Kojima would like for HIS BIRTHDAY!!!! Seee; some moss!

Yea, puzzle solved! Phew.

To be fair, I have liked almost everything I have heard about Sea of Thieves, these two lads however, hmmmm. My heart tells me its going to be alright but my head suggests this video is all about setting expectations....for a shed load of Micro transactions. If thats the case then this vid serves no other purpose than to lead players into thinking "hmm horizontal progression is a thing, and I can progress by spending loads of cash, yeah baby!!!"


For me, the game has just gone from a purchase, to nope, I think I will buy the xbone game pass instead to see how it is at launch. If its riddled with Horizontal Progression Cosmetics, then fuck em. I will not knowingly support that shit.

Dean Hall's spaceship management sim Stationeers is out now on Steam Early Access

5 months ago

"We've had a great deal of fun at the studio in the development of Stationeers," says Hall, "It's fully playable, and quite well optimized, for you in singleplayer or with a small group of friends in multiplayer. We consider what has been done so far as an entirely complete game loop and experience, and our work from here is about giving the game more depth."


What the actual fuck is this drivel??? Fuck off Hall!!!! Once bitten, twice shy... but EG always loves the NZ cash!! ;)

How does this help??? IMHO, as long as people feel the need to "come out as being....", it is always going to be something different and not "the norm".

You don't get people saying, "Guys, its time I came out of the closet. I LOVE FANNY!". Why? because its perceived as normal.

I firmly believe that folks should be who they want, do what they want. Respect for being you! I don't really care who you are, its how you behave to others around you that counts. No need to make a song and dance about it... its time to just; be.

What the UK can learn from the Far East's battle with loot boxes

romelpotter

7 months ago

Nice article, good read.

Ya know I am sure that in the UK, gambling had to be done behind closed doors, or so to speak. This is why bookies have huge posters, frosted windows and the like.

Whenever did this change?


IMHO, all loot boxes are gambling and its simple, make all gambling in the uk; take place inside a bookies.

Be that mobile, loot boxes yada yada. You still get all the choice you get now but apps will only work inside bookies. You clearly have to be 18 to get into a bookies so there is protection there for kids. And if your kid really must have that loot box....then father must "source" the loot box from the bookies and open it then and there. The father can then pass on items to their child.

Father or Mother (clearly), this gives an adult the opportunity to see whats going on and can approve or restrict accordingly.


Works in my head anyway!

Oh and for full transparency, I think gambling is a cancer!

I gave ESO a good try, played it until I was lvl 15 I think. It grew on my and actually I came to feel like it wasnt all that different from the single player ES experience.

However, it had one thing that for me was too big a deal breaker. OTHER PLAYERS.
There really is nothing quite like enjoying a dungeon, sneaking about, sizing up your opponents, getting ready to kill and move on; whooooosh....ten other players have just rushed past you, jumping and swinging their swords at the air!! All of them rushing the dungeon without a fucking care in the world.

"every loot box always contains at least one Rare (blue) item. On average, players receive an Epic (purple) item every 5.5 loot boxes and a Legendary (orange) item every 13.5 loot boxes."


Thats not giving anyone loot percentages, thats just someone saying stuff. The reason being is that it suggests that if you buy 6 loot boxes, then you will get an Epic item. Gambling percentages do not work that way, you can have a 1 in 10 chance (or 10%) of gaining an Epic item but that refers to each and every box. So you open the first box and you have a 10%chance of winning an Epic item. You open the 6th box and you STILL have 10% chance of winning an Epic item.

More skullduggery in the ever shady world of online gambling!

@dflynnigan Well your opinion is illuminating!

I will be honest, I do think of Gambling as a Cancer. 10 years ago I didn't, I used to bet on the national and stuff with my nan, every year.... but Gambling has infected huge areas of modern life and personally I thank god that I have never really had the money to gamble regularly.

You lived up to my stereotypical opinion of a worker within the Gambling business, congrats.

@Kremlik Agreed, but if there is any way at all, where people can use real money to buy a "mysterious" box that contains unknown in game items where some items are better than other, then its gambling.

Kinder Eggs are not the same, you pay for the chocolate and the toy inside is an added bonus. Additionally there is usually no discernible difference between toys.....You don't wake up and go "fuck me I need to buy another Kinder Egg because I just must have that plastic tractor!". Its a silly reference to a very serious topic; which is basically the promotion of gambling in children.

PC 1 was awful with a controller, never ever could get the balance right and setting the car up became more of an exorcise in controller management over car set-up.

Also their dlc policy with cars and tracks was dire! The rest of the game was ok but controller feel is so crucial to how the game plays, means I will give this a miss or maybe pick up the goty (sigh) edition...

@jamespo Um, not sure what to say exactly but yes, that is true. All games are made to make money; as are most products and services.
