At least stop throwing pizza on the ROOF, people. Just throw them into their kitchen, so they can be eaten.

After he completes BG&E2? So, Rayman 4 will be the first title available for the commercial launch of the Holodeck then?

10 million people played in 2 weeks. Ok so it's also Free to play. So how many active players did it have at it's peak?

10 million people for a grand total of 44 million hours. So most everyone just played it once, went "Meh", and then fired up PUBG again?

To be fair, I watched the trailer for it, and it looks pretty fun. Being able to build traps etc in a battle royale seems like a brilliant idea, because it's fun to turtle up against other players.

Also when have publishers ever exercised moderation? You guys know where this is headed. Defend it now to your own chagrin later on.

This is the Diablo 3 corollary.

I think the ESRB has little say in this matter, since they have absolutely zero legislative capability. This will need to be addressed by Congress / the pertinent gambling commissions. And the publishers will just write a $12 check to either one of those collections of critters, after which loot boxes will be declared "AN ESSENTIAL NECESSITY OF LIFE!"

I like that it's an easily selectable option for the 4K videos and textures, but really, Monolith, that probably should not be checked by default. :\

Solid security there, T-Mobile. But then again, there are no consequences to not giving a shit about security, so whatever, right?

"T-Mobile has 76 million customers, and an attacker could have ran a script to scrape the data (email, name, billing account number, IMSI number, other numbers under the same account which are usually family members) from all 76 million of these customers to create a searchable database with accurate and up-to-date information of all users," Saini, who is the founder of startup Secure7, told Motherboard in an online chat.

"Could have" Uh-huh. How about we assume that they HAVE?

Edit : Oh look
UPDATE, Oct. 10, 5:14 p.m. ET: After this story was published, a blackhat hacker who asked to remain anonymous warned Motherboard that the recently patched bug had been found and exploited by other malicious hackers in the last few weeks.

Surprise surprise.

"Shit, people keep complaining about us taking money from Russia. I guess we have to actually DO something about it now. GAWD!"

Thanks Google. Way to be on the ball.

It's great that we've moved from DLC to microtransactions to even more poorly disguised gambling. No longer do we have to worry about compelling narratives and immersive adventures. Sorry Geralt, you need to pay 8000 redpoints to unlock that chest with a Silver sword. You can exchange $5.00USD for 3999 redpoints, act now!

The gaming industry fucking sucks. It's not "just business" anymore, its openly exploiting customers with addictive behavioral problems. I love paying $60 for an incomplete game with upsale bullshit in it, fucking wonderful. Don't even give me that retarded "just ignore them" argument either, their mere presence influences design and you know it. They wouldn't put it there if they didn't expect it to make money and any corp can justify its actions with profit motivation so fuck off with that shit. Heading that one off at the pass because I'm so sick of fanboys defending this horrible practice.

Loot boxes need to fucking die.

Well said.

As a general rule, I find that season passes are worth about a third of their asking price. So in this case, $14. The only exception thus far was the Witcher 3 season pass, which was a fantastic deal.

In general I've found season passes to be a poor deal for the consumer. The content is either sparse, disappointing or sometimes they don't even release everything due to lack of sales.

Holy shit, who did that?

1. Fuck Equifax. Oct 10, 2017, 22:41 Creston
 
Of course they will give out your salary history. Heck, I'm sure they will happily give out SSN as well. Oh wait, they already did.

How every employer happily handed over salary history to them, without ANY kind of agreement from the people whose details were being made public, and without ANY kind of fucking "Hey, what??" from the government is just fucking sickening.

And even know, all those cocktoads in Congress are like "Well, you know... Equifax does give us a lot of bribes serve an important function."

Let's set all of them adrift on the ocean.

And people thought the Shadow of War loot boxes were bad, the ones Battlefront II has are fucking insane.

Yeah I didn't pay any attention to them in the few matches that I played, but it's truly crazy how pay to win it is. Skipped.

Hell though, I'm just surprised the first reply wasn't someone complaining about the lootboxes despite them being wholly inconsequential.

Are they, though? From an ArsTechnica article on loot boxes:

Multiple pre-release reviews of the game have confirmed that its "100 percent" completion state is locked behind an end-game mode called Shadow Wars, which hinges largely on players' ability to recruit "more powerful" allies in the game. To do this, players must use the game's loot-box recruitment system, and reviews indicate that this is tied to a random number generator. Your probability of unlocking a worthy ally, therefore, goes up as you open more loot boxes. Doing so by simply using in-game credits takes a lot longer than opening up your wallet.

:-shrug-:
