    I has the original small screen one, but haven’t really touched it since the battery died after it got wet. Now it sits next to my vita as a part of my gaming history.

    @CK20XX Technically democracy is not about the will of the majority. Actually the opposite. To protect the minority if the majority wants to impose their will and attack their freedom. Freedom and equality are the most important pillers of democracy and they are supposed to be protected by the constitution and the courts. On-topic, cause you have a point, It seems weird that a couple of suits decide this, while nobody wants it or benefits. Do consumers even have rights or a say in this in the usa?

    There are a couple of winter enviroment i really like, lost planet, Animal crossing, metroid prime, assasins creed 3 and recently steep, but skyrim is top of my list. Even if the sun shines in the southern part, the pines, the sound of the wind and pale blue sky still makes you feel chilly.

    According to ESA there is no such thing as an addiction. All those “addicts” choose it voluntary. Gamers don’t get a say in it. They can’t turn off lootboxes, or buy the same game without it. You can not make everything about a game point to buying loot boxes and then say:”hey, they can choose, we just let them know all the time they can choose to buy lootboxes.” Why not make the items available to buy in stead of random boxes? Because you make more money exploiting weak people who are not good at controlling themselves. While not gambling, it’s ethically wrong and should be discussed.

    @VotesForCows that solution is clearly not working as the publishers get bolder and bolder. The mandatory lootboxes of swbf is a good example, combined with a limit on credits earned to buy it with in game cash. As was the Activision “pair a elite with a noob” tactic to get the noob to spend money on lootboxes. I don’t buy lootboxes, but it is silly to let the publishers decide this one, as they clearly don’t have the gamers interests at their core and getting more and more into clear manipulation of the gamer. I think gamers are right to make a stand.

    The trouble with not buying the game as a protests, is that the people who buy it, are also likely to spend money on lootboxes, which gives data to ea, that a large percentage of gamers don’t have a problem with it.

    @otenko the note at the bottom implies that they will be on offer again. So I wouldn’t worry about it. That’s not how you should play AC. Just enjoy and forget about collecting everything. I am sure they will be back again. On another note, I miss the blue skies and stars from the 3ds
