Shagger posted a topic in General DiscussionIt's bad enough that every god damb game feels the need to join in the unwelcome effort to infect people with the idea that gambling for something you've already payed for is OK, but now G2A has taken it to a whoal new despicable level by putting games, actual games, in lootboxes! G2A Loot Page Credit to Musical Anti-Hero who's vid brought this to my attention. G2A already have a less than stellar reputation on account of them being known to sell illegally obtained steam keys and charging for refunds through the "G2A Shield" service that you don't even need to obtain refunds. However, if you use paypal or a credit card, you NEED to be subscribed to that service just to buy these boxes. That's shitty enough already, but it gets worse. The games inside the boxes are mostly garbage that you can find cheeper elsewhere with a few popular titles like Fallout 4, PUBG, Fallout: New Vagas and NieR: Automata in the mix. I would be not slighly shocked if the vast majority of the games you "win" cost less than the box itself. (EDIT) Also, you don't simply "buy" these boxes. You instead buy a kind of in store credit (Microtransactions in games usually operate in a similar way) that is not refundible nor redeemable elsewhare because of cource it isn't. And obviously its priced in such a way that the packs of credit are "more than enough for one, but not quite enough for two" kind of way to encourage people to buy more than they need per box. Why do people do this? I think this attitude that paying for something then gambling in hope of getting said something is very dangerous. I'm actully tempted to call this an effort to soften younger people up to gambling in genral, but in an environment without the strict rules and monitoring that real gambling has. That's why I hate this practice! This, though, is a whoal new level of cock hole. However, I don't fully blame G2A for this because this is just a buisness opportunity to sell keys that aren't selling to people, and I gotta admit it's as clever as it is scummy. The landscape that would allow such an idea to work was created by the people who defend this practice in games like Overwatch, PUBG, Battlefield and so on, and it's only gonna get more common and worse if they don't stop. Start demanding to get the shit you want when you pay for it instead of being offered "the fun and privilege" of gambling in hope for it. And G2A, go suck a bag of dicks!

Wade D McGinnis posted a topic in Video and Music ContentHey guys and gals! James here aka Wade D McGinnis and this morning I bring a new episode of Holo Call. This week I look at why Atlus isn't too keen on letting you stream/record Persona 5, why G2A and Gearbox had a falling out, and CD Projekt trade marking Cyberpunk! As always let me know your thoughts below and we can have discussion about it.
This week in the news; Destructoid disbands UK team, Microsfot and Sony lose lawsuits, continuing story on G2A and TinyBuild, Twitch testing a new source of revenue for streamers, 13th annual Games for Change festival, PS4 and Vita version of 2064: Read Only Memories gets an impressive voice cast, N64 turned 20, Marvel's cancelled Daredevil game, how the history of Japan's post-war peace movements can help us understand Hideo Kojima's work, Hironobu Sakaguchi planning a new company, Jennifer Hepler creating games to foster behavioral change to help patients and students after leaving Bioware, fake screenshots, CRPGs that brought something new to the genre (free 350 page preview book about CRPGs also at the link), Overwatch's Torbjorn is being nerfed (for consoles), and more.

If you don't think the camera will bother you then a better reason to not play the game seems to be the negative reviews from websites and importers. Weird that so many series that were getting it right in the 90s or early 2000s seem to have embraced so many of the worst cliches that anime and sometimes western roleplaying games have to offer. Battlefield 4 to get new, more multiplayer-friendly UI Gwent has a cool idea to combat card pack RNG Shovel Knight dev asks, 'What game should we make next?'

Saw a lot of fake pictures for Fire Emblem when that came out, some that were specifically made as jokes that were then shared by people complaining about the localization, funny to see but also embarrassing when believed or shared as true and usually leads to or adds to the harassment of people.

Now that Nintendo has called them a hate group people seem to have taken to saying that she is stupid for not assuming it was a reference to a combination of Watergate/Mario Party and that she just wanted attention, by that logic the guy in charge of one of the websites they trust is also stupid (worse actually, since he knew the entire context, had no reason for an emotional response, and went on to talk about how the whole in game situation was a reference not just those two lines) or that he intentionally created controversy where there was none in order to write a clickbait article for attention which could easily have been what she was sent the pictures from in the first place. But that was last week, only the people who thought that this week are idiots that wanted attention apparently. The Best Games Patrick Played At E3 2016 WWE's Xavier Woods Credits Games With His Own Human Development [SSFF] Resident Evil - Re:Certified Classic Also a look at the creation of the game and who was involved in its creation. Why You Need To Play The Zero Escape Series Definitely a series people should try out. Guns, games and violence: The real questions you should be asking Good to bring up with how Call of Duty developers work with the military, how military movies and games advertise for the military, people looking to hire gamers to operate drones, or just based on how many people I've known or heard of who wanted to join the military because Call of Duty/Metal Gear was fun (not really sure how Metal Gear makes you want to join the military, you would think it would make you want to do the opposite, but most people have never really been good at understanding story or narrative themes in games).
