I'm not anti labeling either but these entertainment regulatory bodies are more about giving the impression that they're doing something than actually doing it.Torval said:I'm not anti-labeling. I've just had my fill of platitudes for anything. Prayers and thoughts for all bad events, but not real supportive interaction. Sorry you're fucked, wish you well. That's mostly what I see with this, platitude legislation. It's fine though, I just don't expect change but I want it.Iselin said:Meh...
Just the kind of window dressing I'd expect from an industry self-regulatory body.

Better than nothing I guess but not by much,
I think it's kind of cute in a Pollyanish kind of way, that some people think that given the enhancement and change possibilities in a Scifi universe where you can change just about anything if you have the cash, no one would be interested in selling or buying junk mods.Torval said:It's not just the game, but the entire sub-genre is built around questioning identity, humanity, and reality. If anyone thought questions about our junk wouldn't come into the picture might not actually be a hume. Xeno detected! Wait wrong game, sorry.
The best take from this is that they have been noticed and some have made efforts to make them go away using whatever tool they have at their disposal. It's currently individual jurisdictions in a piecemeal fashion but hey, it's one step better than regulators and legislators saying "WTF is a lootbox?"gervaise1 said:Am I right in that loot boxes have not been banned they have simply been classed as gambling and that if they wish Blizzard could continue to have then in game providing they comply with the appropriate laws.
And as DNKano says gambling laws are different in different countries; arguably highly restrive in the Us for example.
