The Belgian Gaming Commission rules that the loot boxes in Overwatch, FIFA 18 and CS:GO fall under their gambling regulations.  Could face fines and jail time if not removed, though they want to start a discussion with the industry about it.  They felt the changes made to Battlefront II make it no longer qualify.

$1 GamePass is nice but with State of Decay not releasing till May 22 it does not really do me much good. I guess a few days for $1 is still not a bad way to try it out.

It'll be great if this has a real effect but I think they'll probably just modify that system as little as possible in just that country to skirt the law. It's what Blizzard did with Overwatch in China when they required percentages with Lootboxes. They just started selling a tiny amount of in game Credits with the "bonus" of included lootboxes.

I think best case scenario is maybe a big change from one of the three for at most all of Europe.

It’s Belgium. Sure publishers are concerned about the 5 gamers they’ll lose there. 😂

Bummer, got the survey to pop up but it says I don't qualify. Using a VPN.

Weird how VPN does not work, didn't work for me either.

Gotta start somewhere.  Hopefully, like SIX min WHISTLE said, changes are made throughout Europe.  Either voluntarily by the devs / publishers or Belgium and the Netherlands getting the rest of the EU on board.

I got that 5$ code for doing the survey, but it gave me a US code and my account is from Canada so it wont let me redeem it. I contacted Microsoft but they're giving me the runaround.

Any ideas?

Of the following OG Xbox titles which one is the best visual upgrade on the X1X? I’ve never played any of these but have credit expiring so I’m getting just one for now.

Black, crimson skies, dead to rights, jade empire, ninja gaiden, Star Wars KOTOR, or Morrowind?

just a thought, you can send it to someone in the US and they can gift you a game worth $5.

Haven’t played them all but of the ones I have, I’d say Ninja Gaiden. It looks and plays amazingly.

That said I’d recommend a game not on your list - Panzer Dragoon Orta. One of my all time favs and also looks fantastic.

Out of the ones I've played or seen in videos I'd either say Jade Empire or Ninja Gaiden. SSX 3 looks really good as well.

 

If you haven't played any of those I'd say grab KotOR.

 

Morrowind still looks pretty rough even with the upgrades.

I just finished the theater debut of Cobra Kai, and it was awesome. Looks like Youtube Red is in my future.

You asked for one so that's all I will recommend...another vote for Ninja Gaiden.

How are people getting this survey to pop? It's on Xbox.com, right? I've been clicking through different games, even some review and pics of the games, waiting to see if something pops up, but nothing yet. Didn't know if it had to be any specific games, or if it's done by now, or what the deal is. Thanks in advance.

Welp, this worked, finally, after some playing around, and then I got the survey to pop, and got a message that "this survey is already full" because it ate too much CAG BS today or something I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (total sarcasm obvbiously - happy for those that got it). Thanks for the reply, too.

It sounds like you might have told the survey who you actually are, instead of saying you're a one-legged Cajun lesbian veteran that runs a company. :)

Actually finished two games off game pass now and it only took me a month. The Final Station wasn't really what I was expecting at all, thought it was going to be a permadeath rougelike thing but was a pleasantly surprising linear narrative deal. I liked it.

 

Now can I do three in the next month before my two months is up? Probably not!

Thanks for the recommendations. I went with Ninja Gaiden and splurged to get KOTOR also. I’ll pick up jade empire next. Even though it’s highly praised, after watching some gameplay videos, I’m not sure Panzer Dragoon is something I’d like.

I've been clicking around for about 15 minutes with no survey. On my PC, AdBlock off, signed in.

This survey is a freaking unicorn. Had it pop once right after I first started trying but clicked past it by mistake. Haven't seen it again ... different browsers, no ad block, different network connections.

This survey talk all sounds like a lot of work for $5. Of course, I have continually wasted time checking sale prices and scouring clearance shelves for years to save a few dollars here or there, so to each there own...

Thrill of the hunt ... have what you can't have and all that
