Electronic Arts insists that booty boxes are "mechanisms of surprise"
Surprise! You have just spent $ 100 looking for a high-end character costume! Is not it healthy?
The controversy over the game content collections stored in the game, random and purchasable, has continued this week with a hearing in the UK Parliament, during which representatives of Electronic Arts and Artisans'. Epic Games were forced to answer questions about storage, gambling addiction and which Prince Harry about Fortnite.
As PC Gamer reports, when asked to defend booty boxes like those found in Star Wars Battlefront II, Kerry Hopkins, Legal Affairs Officer at EA, compared to Kinder Eggs, calling them "surprise mechanisms" and stressing that they are "ethical" and "fun" and that they offer a healthy surprise and pleasant to boys and girls worldwide Parliament's commission on digital, culture, media and sports continues its investigation of "immersive and addictive technologies", so it may take a some time before knowing if the members are in agreement with EA on this point.
Classic worship Alpha Protocol N & # 39; is no longer available on Steam
Digital showcases are not a good way to preserve the long-term existence of old games. The last proof: Alpha protocol, a classic, messy but much-loved role-playing game, created by Obsidian Entertainment, has been removed from the Steam list, which means that it can no longer be purchased. As reported by Rock Paper Shotgun, the game page now says that it has been removed at the request of the publisher.
The culprit, as is often the case when this happens, is a conflict of rights. The music licenses for the title have apparently expired and, without these rights, the game must be removed, without indication of the moment or eventual return. The lesson here is simple: if you like something, buy it and buy it physically if it's possible. When rights conflicts erode digital entertainment value, you'll be grateful.
You should play this Super Mario Bros. Battle Royale game now
I feel so bad for people who make Nintendo fan games. They obviously work with such a high level of passion and often create fascinating, creative and beautiful things. But by their very nature, their days are numbered. Here's how it goes: Someone creates a neat game, then it eventually gets neat enough and big enough for the press to hear about it. We talk about it, and soon after, the creator receives a notice of withdrawal. This is difficult for Nintendo enthusiasts.
The last game to become viral is a neat game, however: Mario Royalewho turns the original Super Mario Bros. in, yeah, a ridiculous battle-royal game with a different buncha, Marios on the screen, all racing to finish the levels and maybe kill each other on the way. It's a wild and sloppy chaos, and you should play it while you get the chance.
