ESRB isn't a federal agency but a self appointed garbage. Its claim to anything doesn't mean a fing thing especially when it runs away with tail between its leg every time there is a major publisher involved.

Got friends who work at gamestop and you dont know how many times they have gotten in trouble for telling kids they cant buy a m game without there parents there. Legally they arent allowed to sell it and many people at their stores just do cause they dont care and the parents dont care.

Why do all the console fanboys keep on ranting about "exclusives" when it comes to the Xbox Game Pass? No single game will only be playable on one platform, because over time it will either be ported, remade or emulation software will make the game playable on other platforms. Microsoft allows you to chose, to some degree, the platform you want to play their games on. This is by far a better way of doing things than the "exclusives" of other platforms. Also with the Xbox Game Pass, being able to download the games rather than streaming them is the only way to do gaming as a service. It is unacceptable to have to deal with lag in a single player game or campaign. All Microsoft really need to do, to make this the end-all of gaming services, add better backwards compatibility and the 360's library to the Game Pass.

The question I asked is what does a drug rehabilitation center have to do with microtransactions and gambling in video games.

Youre right that kids shouldnt be playing age inappropriate games, but I saw 3 kids on the tube, the eldest being no more than 11, all drooling over their new copy of Rainbow Siege Six. One of them had their father with them and seemed to have his blessing. I used to work for a well known game retailer and we had to take quarterly assessments, and sign paperwork, saying that we accepted that if we sold a game to an underage person we would be the ones facing prosecution personally. However, the parents tend to blame everyone but themselves. So it would seem to me that an idea to amend the use of drugs in games may look good on paper in conjunction with the esrb/pegi ratings, but the reality is far more complicated.

ESRB is full of jack asses any ways.

I mean any time I've taken drugs I've felt incredible, invincible. Like I could conquer the world. At least till the come down hits. I'd call that a power up.

PlayStation needs to step up.

Microtransactions need to die. They are cancer that ruins videogames. But government regulation is NOT the answer. Trust me, it's not worth it. Look at battlefront 2. Voting with our wallets, and spreading information does work. We have a voice. Don't call in the government when we finally have a foothold. A little regulation will become a lot, and gaming will officially be ruined. We as consumers can stop microtransactions from ruining gaming, by voting with our wallets. But it will be much harder to stop the government from potentially doing far worse to gaming than any loot box could. Once they get their corrupt foot in the door, it's a slippery slope. I've been advocating against microtransactions for years, and I'm so happy the topic is spreading. But what it's spreading to scares me more than the actually issue. It won't be easy, or instant, but we can stop microtransactions from ruining gaming by voting with our wallets. Please don't let the government get involved. Trust me, it's a bad idea.

If MS could get every game in the library to run "Play Anywhere", I'd sign up. I have an X1, but switched to PC gaming a while back. I do miss the online account.. friends etc. I always looked for "Play Anywhere" whenever I bought games, usually right before buying on Steam, since nothing seems to be "Play Anywhere". Should be called "Play Nowhere". This needs some more work.. and backward comparability for older games with this PA thing.

rust is still trash , garry probably just doesnt want that Eternal early access stigma on his game. That game has one of the worst skin systems too, the prices fucking go up slowly and facepunch barred people from selling the skins until their own store has finished sales, because it was fucking easy to undercut those brainlets

That powerup thing is bullshit, when i get drunk my damage resistance flies through the roof, having said that the debuff after may not be worth it

Got an ad for a gta5 cheat site before this vedio. Didn't much care for that. It kind of clashes with your content.
