What you've really got here is powerful lobbyists looking to shift the blame of gun violence from guns to video games.

It's a shame that politicians engage in this sort of knee-jerk reaction while thinking of their own wallets (lobbyist funding) and not engaging with actual behavioral science experts to make effective change.

Politicians need to refer to actual research, generated by experts in that particular field, before putting their own / lobbyists opinions forward as bills.

If only Andrew Wilson was as passionate about this kind of story telling as loot boxes / games-as-a-service, then I'm sure the next DA could be something; lets hope for the best!

Valve have issued a statement to Australian Steam usersValve have issued a statement to Australian Steam users

“all consumer goods or services come with automatic consumer guarantees that they are of acceptable quality and fit for the purpose for which they were sold. If they are not, consumers have a right to a remedy, which may include refund, repair, or replacement in certain circumstances. These consumer rights cannot be excluded, restricted, or modified.”


Here it is again. Reading it would have saved you time and embarrassment.


Also please don't paint the current US political division labels over other countries, it just doesn't make sense.

Oh gawd. You bumbling idiot. You read that just like a schoolboy politician who's a left leaning mentally ill person instead of anyone with experience or logic. So, by that logic, In Australia it would be illegal to sell prototypes, donate to any charity of any kind, let alone kickstarter type donations, sell early access games or gamble. Because none of those things will ever be guaranteed acceptable quality by consumers but may be acceptable quality to the developers or distributors. So... to spare my accused embarrassment and pass it on to the person who it actually belongs. I ask you. How do you suggest operating a video game distribution service that offers people the opportunity to make and sell games on your platform based on sales and demand for the product a fair and inviting process in one country out of multiples that don't have ridiculously liberal and left leaning views? I dont see right leaning countries complaining about buying a product they don't like. You know why? They either know how to read or know how to research a product before they buy it. Also, I just want to point this fine deatil out here. They don't set their expectations for a rock to turn into a f**king star....

I feel the same way. But if Anthem fails we can expect BioWare to be shutdown also?


I hope other devs can step up to this huge SP RPG space, because I doubt EA is going to provide much here.

I fear you may be right about closure, so I hope Anthem will succeed, even though I probably won't be enjoying it...


I did love MEA though, if I can keep playing my SP Bioware games and ignore the MP part of them, even if they are open world, I can live with that!

NihlusGreen Avatar
I'm still using the Hyper X, great unit. Does the Cloud Alpha come in normal styles or only black with garish "gamer" red highlights? We really need more white in this area.Reply
Dave James Avatar

At the moment, I think there's only the red. I guess other styles will be coming eventually.

Matt any comment as to needing a large grind or loot boxes to get the "true" ending of the Shadow Wars chapter? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPHp7xHt-MMReply

The article you're commenting on and the 12 minute video at the top of it are almost solidly comment on that.


From someone who has actually played the game, no less.

Last night a force feedback steering wheel saved my lifeLast night a force feedback steering wheel saved my life
NihlusGreen Avatar
Nice save Dave!

So your choice for a wheel would be either the G29 or T300RS?Reply
Dave James Avatar

It's a tricky one. The T300RS has got the 1080° rotation (Logitech stops at 900°) and the slightly better force feedback, but it's a bit more expensive. The G29 (the Sony PS version over the Xbox G290) has more buttons, a nicer build quality and super stable pedals. Overall though I just give it to the Thrustmaster wheel, but only just.
