    FIFA Ultimate Team & gambling

    I mean, I feel like UT is the definition of gambling (from dictionary.com): From Blackjack and The Law (1998): The UK Gambling Commission have not said that loot boxes are gambling, yet, but any reasonable person can see how it can be construed as such and can understand that if an organisation already has an anti-gambling stance, they would not look fondly upon loot boxes. For clarity, I don't want to include an UT type mode in the game to monetise the game. I would like it in the game because it is the only mode I play in PES and I really enjoy it without ever having spent a penny on it. But if the mode is included, the publisher would want to monetise it, but we'd have to weave around the potential gambling implications. There are some interesting ideas in here that I will investigate further, but more ideas would be great.

    FIFA Ultimate Team & gambling

    It is now me that wants the mode in as it is the only mode I play in PES. (I don't actually play FIFA) But the publisher would like it in for monetisation.

    For a bit of context, I am in talks with a sports association about making a game. An Ultimate Team style mode would be really good to include but they are very anti-gambling. Just trying to work out what would be a good way to make the mode work without the gambling aspect.

    FIFA Ultimate Team & gambling

    With a lot of focus on gambling in games, in a lot of different countries, how do you think this will affect FIFA and Ultimate Team? Obviously EA will want to keep something in there, it is a money making machine, but if they were forced to remove the randomness in the packs, how could it work? Is it still possible to monetise the mode? The only thing I can think of is to allow people to buy in game currency, which you can use to buy or bid on the specific player. But does this lose the fun part of ultimate team? For me, the randomness is the basics of the enjoyment, if you could just flat out buy the best players every team would be the same. What would you do? EDIT: For a bit of context, I am in talks with a sports association about making a game. An Ultimate Team style mode would be really good to include but they are very anti-gambling. Just trying to work out what would be a good way to make the mode work without the gambling aspect.

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    And the game...I'd assume that replacement cardboard would be pretty cheap.

    It's literally for me, so that's OK.

    The Humble Thread

    I don't have DR2 or RE5 and still think it's terrible. Of course it matters how old a game is, but it is more the Bethesda F2P bullshit that has really annoyed me this month. I would rather they focussed on promoting cool indie games than F2P crap or old AAA titles.

    You realise the 5% Facebook code works regardless of whether you are a new customer or not? Have people been doing cdkeys wrong?

    The Humble Thread

    There is no way that the last bundle was IGN's fault, I'm sure these bundles are planned months in advance. But yes it was a shitfest of a bundle. A load of Bethesda bullshit and 2 games that are 7 and 8 years old respectively. Already have Shadow Tactics, so Silence, Emily Is Away Too and World to the West at least look interesting. If it wasn't $12 a month I would have stopped subbing ages ago. H1Z1 does not inspire me for next months one, especially seeing as I (and the rest of the world) already have PUBG. They have until the new year to get me back on side.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    My disc drive has been knackered for a couple of weeks too. I've been reading more reports of the same coming about recently. Coincidence? Maybe. But I'm not so sure. I feel like something in the recent update caused it and could possibly be fixed. I'm all in on digital though going forward, but I've still got Rock Back and a couple of other older ones that I'd like to play again.

    Will the Mario pre-load become active at midnight or will I have to wait to some ridiculous arbitrary hour? I just can't wait, have been planning a sleepless night all day!

    I am not a fan of retro pixel art in games. That Moonlighter though is pixel art done right. Looks great.

    The Man Utd Thread

    He scored 1 in a 2-0 win, 1 in a 3-0 win and 2 in a 4-0 win. Hardly invaluable.
