Loot boxes are the natural progression of you people accepting mmo's and steam, as soon as people bought a server locked game it was over. The entire mission of the game industry was to take software control away from customers. That has been going on since the days of Ultima online, everquest and wow.

Arenanet has had loot crates in both of their games since the beginning and it works because they are always optional cosmetic items. EA doesn't appear to want to play that game. They want to go the route of a full-priced AAA-title masquerading as phone app with in-game purchases. "Farmville for Star Wars fans!"

If the intention is to protect children, publishers will ensure every game with a smidgen of microtransactions will be rated PEGI 18 and that may likely translate into Rated M here in the states. When the U.S. government threatened publishers with regulations, because of games like Mortal Kombat being sold for home consoles, the industry decided to self-regulate with the creation of the ESRB governing body.
MTs in and of themselves aren't a problem. Selling Lootboxes with a random chance of winning is the problem. Don't conflate the two.

With all due respect to your assessment, that's wrong too. The issue with loot crates is not the RNG factor. The real problem is that in a game like SWBF2, EA is blocking core gameplay elements behind paywalls. THAT'S the issue. Of course, EA's PR team would say the items are "optional," but they're not. For that reason, loot crates can be seen as a form of gambling because they're designed to basically force a purchase (pardon the pun) and the item received is random. Contrast with loot crates in a game like Guild Wars 2. Black Lion Chests are RNG but everything is 100% optional vanity stuff.

His little brother was emancipated by the age of 15 and moved out of the house. This is pure unadultered whiny white man that cutter does best.

And we wouldn't have it any other way, except for when Blue's deletes his post.

Here's a game for the 1% gamers with $4,000 computers. My potato computer would probably blow up if I went anywhere near that thing.

Yeah I've given up on the idea of being able to ever run this game. My priorities have shifted in the last 5 years and I'm not the type of person to spend a fortune building the kind of computer that can run this smoothly.

I backed for SQ42 and at the rate we're going we'll see that in 5 years probably. One thing these videos have shown me is that Chris Roberts doesn't particularly know what makes games *fun*.

Meh. Oh well.

The irony in your statement is that by the time SQ42 is released today's $4,000 powerhouse will probably be like $650

"There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth."

Yeah, that would be Cthulhu. Cthulhu And circle is not the same as sphere. Flat-earthers belive the world is a circle too. The Church taught geocentrism for centuries. Just ask Galileo how he made out when he put forth the theory of heliocentrism.

What I've never understood about the flat earthers is just how thick the earth is? Can't be paper thin otherwise we couldn't mine anything right? So just how flat is it exactly? How with modern technology has no one ever filmed the edge of the earth? Where does all the water go? Where does it come from? I actually looked at a couple of these FE websites and they are just painful to behold. Apparently no one has ever been to space, there are no satellites, etc. That's because, get this, space agencies only exist to embezzle tax dollars. Yes, every space agency of every nation on earth is apparently in cahoots on this. There are 10's of 1000s of people in on this and nary a one of them has ever blown cover and revealed the hoax because they're all getting insanely rich of the billions they're embezzling.

Wow. Just wow. Rolleyes

If my math is correct, God inspired that passage in the mind of Isaiah some 3,600 years ago. The thought of a person living 3,600 years ago would be radically different from today's views. God did not need to identify the earth as a "sphere" or even explain what a sphere is. To use a math analogy, he simply said "Pi=3.14." That is it. Simple. Nothing too complicated. Of course, today people know the value of Pi goes WAY beyond 3.14. How would you describe the shape of the earth to a 2-year-old in simple words? You would use "circle." Don't over-complicate this.

BTW Cthulhu dwells UNDER the circle of the earth.

"He's not lying." - Cthulhu

Once NASA launched astronauts into space and they looked back at the earth they saw that it was a sphere. By shape alone, a three-dimensional object cannot be a two-dimensional shape. Besides several thousand years before that happened a simple passage in the Bible tells us the shape of Earth: "There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth." (Isaiah 40:22) You have religion and science agreeing with each other here.

Is this guy mental?

Another Anniversary is here and what better way to celebrate than to sell more overpriced JPGs.

- Hammerhead $550 and $650 (both with LTI*)
- Hawk $80 and $90 (both with LTI*)
- But, wait! There's more! Like seven more days more.

Life Time Insurance was a feature pitched to early backers as an early access perk. When the new RSI site launched on June 28, 2013, CIG announced that LTI would be standard on ALL ships thereby rendering the value of LTI meaningless. At the time I thought it was a slimy move that reeked of cash-grab convenience.

Politics isn't real.
If only this were true. Unfortunately politics are very real, and they have real effects on real people. As a specific example my ability to get health care is at risk due to politics.

"Do not put your trust in nobles nor in a son of man, who cannot bring salvation." (Psalms 146:3) It's pretty telling when the Bible says politics is untrustworthy.

Besides, the governments of the world delude themselves if they think they have power. They don't know what real power is. Here's actual power: "The nations are like a drop from a bucket, and as the film of dust on the scales they are regarded." (Isaiah 40:15)

Except for King Solomon, no ruler has ever brought any peace and happiness to their subjects. History is rife with individuals who wanted to rule for selfish reasons. And even if they mean well, they are imperfect and incapable of battling a system stacked against them. (1 John 5:19) It's the same garbage from the beginning. Humans dominating humans to their injury as Ecclesiastes 8:9 states.

Politics has no substance behind any of it. That's why I said it is not real and is delusional.

EA could learn a thing or two from In-N-Out Burger. They have a small menu, but the quality keeps people coming back for more. Contrast with McDonald's who only deals with quantity and entices people with constantly changing menus, Happy Meals, and toys, and for the most part horrible food. EA is the McDonald's of video games. CD Projekt Red is the In-N-Out Burger of video games. I think Disney should take their Star Wars IP away from EA and give it to a quality company, like CDPR.
