EA may have done us all a favor and finally tipped the boat on loot boxes as Chris Lee, a Democrat from Hawaii, is launching a state investigation into predatory practices in gaming.

 

It's been a long time coming and I think the mix of a property like Star Wars, the overstepping of EA's progression design, and just some good ol' fashion Internet mobbing finally started to get the attention of people outside the industry.

Jesus, did you read that shit-tier article that CNN put out?  About "looting boxes" -- just ill-informed reporting about VidyaGames in a way that hasn't been seen since the MK days.

 

And, yes, it is very clearly gambling.  It needs to be removed.  Whatever way we get there, I'm for.  I hope that this extends to the terrible "free" phone app games industry, too.

That TV is what you want. It's the best on the market right now for OLEDs.

 

Also... that house, for that price...

 

I'm just gonna kill myself. The places my wife and I are looking at will require a down payment of at least that much.

Move to Knoxville.  Buy my house.

The problem with projectors is that they have a lot of input lag so it's not recommended for gaming.

I know. Hence "movie room."  The TV is for my consoles, which will be in another room. 

 

You have not one, but TWO Episode One posters?!?

Seeing that movie 11 times warped your brain my dude. (Nice house btw)

12 times.  Just in the theater...  I saw it 9 times during the initial run.  Then twice when the 3D re-release happened (first showing and last showing).  Then when TFA came out, I did the marathon...

 

Yeah, both official one-sheets.  I got them before the movie came out, obviously, through the Star Wars Insider.  Notice I have no Ep 2 or 3 posters, despite the AotC teaser poster being absolutely DOPE.  The RotS teaser poster was garbage, though. 

 

The TFA was a total surprise, it's a true double-sided poster right out of the theater.  I made an off-hand comment that I wished I had gotten a "real" poster like I did when TPM came out.  It was my Christmas present last year from my wife. 

 

That TLJ teaser poster is absolutely HOT FIRE.  I want one badly.

Yep. I'll also be getting a 4k projector for my movie room.

Don't even think about it, just get the damn thing. That's the exact one I bought a few months back, the C7 65" and it's absolutely incredible once you get it in your house. It's pretty much universally considered the best TV out at the moment. The colors are great, the black levels are totally unreal, it has very low input lag for games (21 ms), and it's totally future proof as it has all the standards you need (HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision).

 

Plan is to order it on BF if we have a contract on our house.  My surround sound setup won't let me put anything larger than what we have there currently.

 

Here, take a look at my house:
