That "droid" is the best news this game has to offer by far
A far cheaper solution than spending money on micro transactions.

You'd be surprised how much electro servos cost

This is a very sad situation for those people.

Who bought micro transactions for a p2w game? I think not, they deserve the salt. But the the developers, they for sure did NOT deserve this.

I do hope nobody gets refunds though

Adults should be able to control themselves when gambling or making in game purchases.

Children should not be exploited by adults. I'd suggest banning all exploitative marketing to children under a certain age in the US. This would include in game purchases, lootboxes and other forms marketing. I don't see the benefit to society in any of it.

If you want to develop a lootbox / addictive gambling type game. Age verification should be required on all players. Some type of cell phone + credit card + voice recording analysis(?) verification.

Some poor adult with mental problems blows a load on your game. There should be a court process to get the funds returned and that person gets put in the child category.

You say adults should be able to control themselves when gambling, but there's a reason gambling is illegal in most states.

And yet his radical solution wouldn't be a bad idea, although I don't think regulation should "cease" just because someone is age X, age is relative and only a number, it has no real bearing on anything.

we also want to welcome new gamers into an already rolling multiplayer ecosystem

Hahahahahahahahaaaaaa, as someone who recently started a new account to see what that means.. this is some total BS

The only thing rolling here is the slowly shrinking beta community that wtf-pwns all noobs in "Quick play" and has contributed to this being a nearly barren wasteland for new players. New players don't even play real humans until 8 hours in, because the level you need for ranked play is 10, to get that you have to grind EVERY SINGLE SOLO QUEST and most of them you can not even beat with a default deck.

Gwent may be conceptually a good game, but they REALLY fucked up the new player experience. And this isn't new, it's been getting worse and worse the past 6 months.

If the EU actually regulates this then it wouldn't even matter if Hawai's initiative gets anywhere... EU regulation is much stronger incentive for EA to sod off with lootboxes than any grassroots movement ever could. Since violations could end up with 25k fines, PER DAY of violation, per game. And EA is not in the business of pissing billions into the wind like Microsoft....

What I worry though, is what they will come up with next. Because those hundreds of people, that are apparently such scumbags that their sole purpose of existence is to find out how to exploit children, will not stop unless we stop them.

I'd say they "Live by the public company, die by the public company"

If they were private, none of this would be an issue. They'd never have to push a game through the door to hit a release window even if it's still falling apart. Working on "Valve time" is got to be nice.

That's right, if it were all private these problems don't exist. Makes you wonder of a world without stock investment.

Before stock exchanges, there were guilds... and they were MUCH more powerful than banks.

Ok, that sounds like a odd CIV reference, but it is the historic truth

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.

Meh, fast food is fast food no matter where the meat and ingredients come from, they all put stuff in you die from, be it nitrates, chemical nonsense or sugar or fat or all the other stuff you should never eat in those quantities.

Is there a limit on how many times a company can win "Worst Company in America"?

No idea, but worst company in America is most definitely Equifax

You just gotta love Torvalds.

He's not wrong either. Sometimes his lack of filter works just as much as it should.

Alienating people publicly isn't how you make a team work though. And the more toxic Linus is, the less people submit patches to the Kernel. So that seems like a lose-lose to me.

EA ruined a perfectly good niche game that could have become a regular earner, instead they brought down the ENTIRE deadspace IP. And no doubt the managers at EA got fat checks for that.

None of these companies want solid earners anymore, same with movie studios. They want huge hits or nothing. Why make 10 million back from a 5 million budget when you can make 1 billion back from a 200 million budget? Right or wrong we're stuck with them having this mindset.

At least for the big publishers that seems to be the case indeed, I doubt even a big failure would teach them otherwise in the current situation. And all we get is the same games with different skins. But I guess for the new growing up audiences that's great... for us who played the originals of a series that's horrible ;/

That EA canned Viscerals Solo Star-Wars game (and killed Visceral in the process, not to mention what EA forced down our throats with the mess that was dead space 3..) after 4 years of development tells you everything ye need to know about EA.

Someone will make a trustworthy child's smartwatch. The ones I have seen look like the Dick Tracy wrist phone with facetime. The ability to lockout who you child can receive calls from and make calls to is a big plus. And it is strapped to their wrist making it harder to lose.

The real problem is that these smart watches had a silent call mode which can be used to spy on said child, or home, or family... illegal in Germany. Not just illegal to sell, but illegal to possess!

And yet a smart phone with an app has the exact same functionality.

And if that is ever found out in school you are going to have a lot of fun in a court room. ^^ Not so much fun later, when you receive a 5 digit fine and are required to destroy your smart-phone like, with verification and certificate.

If you use that at work by the way, you face concrete walls for up to 10 years and obviously instant firing. In both cases that shit is just not worth it. (reason for 10+ years? Industrial espionage law triggers here) And that means civil lawsuits will ruin you in the aftermath as well.

Basically, don't use spy devices (or apps) in Germany ^^
