Electronic Arts has finally decided to abide by the Belgian Gaming Commission’s ruling against lootboxes. In a statement on EA’s official site, the publisher announced that they will cease selling premium FIFA Points in Belgium by the end of the month. “After further discussions with the Belgian authorities, we have decided to stop offering FIFA Points for sale in Belgium. We’re working to make these changes effective in our FIFA console and PC games by January 31, 2019. This means that players in Belgium will not be able to purchase points to obtain FIFA Ultimate Team packs. Players still can access Ultimate Team and play with their existing players. All content in the game can be earned through gameplay, as has always been the case, and players can continue to use coins and the in-game transfer market. Any players in Belgium that have existing FIFA Points in their accounts can continue to use them, but they will not be able to purchase more. We apologize to … [Read more...] about Electronic Arts Stops Selling FIFA Points In Belgium Amid Lootbox Legal Controversy
Disposable electronic hookah how to use
I don’t have an awful lot to talk about this morning, apart from just how badass my Orc Warrior Lady looks in the Blackhand set combined with the revamped version of the crazy Black Temple shield and Mechanar sword. As much as I generally did not like the story arc of Warlords of Draenor… it produced a bunch of gear that I absolutely love. The Iron Wrath set still is among my all-time favorite Warrior sets and I really need to put some time into farming the transmog bits that I am missing. One of the things I realized last night is that my attachment to the Sun Eater’s appearance is at least in small part because I farmed Heroic Mechanar for ages to try and get it. It also made me realize how different the economy of gear is now as to when it was back then. There were items worth farming because when you got them… they would actually serve as a pretty good weapon for a good while into raiding rather than something you toss in the … [Read more...] about Disposable Items
Tied to Screens At least once a week I see a report in the news talking about how we have become too tied to our screens and we have lost social interaction. While I agree that as a culture we are pretty damned addicted to technology, this view point that not interacting face to face is aberrant or strange seems to be a pretty extrovert centric. For the introverts the era of instant non-face to face communication allows us to leave far richer lives than if we were left up to our natural curmudgeon tendencies. I am not one of those people that goes out seeking face to face interactions, and while I can handle it in short doses… it completely drains me and causes me to retreat inside my shell. Whereas digital interaction, doesn’t really cause much stress at all as I can interact when I feel like it, but withdraw just as easily as closing down a chat window. Dealing with people simply causes a lot of anxiety for me. We have various friends … [Read more...] about Electronic Gaming Monthly

Ever since the first year of Lord of the Rings Online’s operation, I’ve always been head-over-heels for the Lore-master class. Everything about it seemed to appeal to me: dual wielding a staff-and-sword, book learnin’, book fightin’, plenty of group utility, and loads of elemental damage. Plus, there were the pets — pets plural! While the Captain has a herald and the Rune-keeper can toss out stationary totems, the Lore-master is the main pet class of LOTRO. And I am all about pets in any MMO I play, so I’ve been romping all over the fields and valleys of Middle-earth with one at my side ever since 2008. One of the most frequent questions that new Lore-masters ask is, “Which pet should I use?” With seven options at your disposal, that’s a tricky question that can only be answered by “You use the right pet for the right situation.” But I don’t like giving short, pat answers when elaboration is needed, so today I want … [Read more...] about LOTRO Legendarium: Which Lore-master pet should you use?
