Against the travel ban and now loot boxes. Hawaii confirmed best state.
So. Much. This. don't forget to throw Forza 7 into that mix
This is an important point.
Well, it's not just Chinese and Belgian lawmakers anymore. Good job, @EA , for bringing all this to the public eye!
EA have gotten through this generation thanks to FUT. If you have EA shares sell sell sell.
I was going to say "UGH, again with the 'We have to protect our kids!'-defense, what bullshit." but the actual stat…

Good, loot boxes have no place in full priced games.

Good. Microtransactions with RNG behind them are a plague

The struggle is real
Bruh, EA is never gonna live this down. However, I can't say that they don't deserve it.
