    Think of the children being explosed to gambling...
    While your comment is mocking, I've read several recent stories about how the UK is going through a bit of a gambling addiction crisis and offshore betting figures highly in the debate, hence their focus on these activities especially where children are involved.

    I'm playing AC Origins

    Its got an awesome virtual world and a great setting. I've got a couple hundred hours into it, making my own adventures while I putt through the main story.

    How I would love to see this game moddable.

    Its got a lot going for it.
    Asherons Call has a private server called Origins?  ;)

    Folks need to quit trying to reuse common MMORPG acronyms,  confuses things.

    I guess I must be the only one happy about the land sale thing. Like hell I'm gunna buy into it but the news means that plots of land will be buyable in game with in game currency and I think that's a neat feature to play around with (so long as the team working on it is a team that's waiting for another team to finish a more integral part of the game before moving on).
    Impossible. Plots of land is so large a feature that it can't be done while waiting for something else. All the time and money CIG spends to plots of land and housing on planets is time and money that CIG is not spending on other parts of the game.
    What is it you think they are doing? The housing is just modules from units that they already needed to be in game. They are not placing players houses for them, players will place them in game. The only thing needed strictly for the players was the mechanic of the ship building the modules. They have 400 employees, how big a deal do you think that will be to them?. Plots of land is a small non revolutionary concept, a mechanic to set a boundary and set an ID /shrug.
    I agree, establishing plots of land appears to be simple, but the conditions and mechanics to hold on to or sieze them from others might not be, if EVE's station/ system sovereignty features in 0.0 and attacking / defending player owned structures is any indication.

    Its actually a list of "dubious" micro transaction practices, and only lists the land sales, not the ships.

  • Bethesda & Lynda Carter Throw Shade at Other Publishers & Vow to #SavePlayer1 - Elder Scrolls Online

    Wait, we're talking about Bethesda "saving us"from gaming as a service with single player games?

    Same company that makes Fallout 4 which has like 7 DLC modules, a season pass, and a modding tool they sell you.

    That Bethesda?
