The Division laid the foundation the sequel builds on and while it was believed that the first installment would see an end to its life cycle once The Division 2 hits, we now know this might not be the case. According to David Polfeldt, Managing Director of Massive Entertainment, The Division 2 doesn’t necessarily mean the end of The Division. Both games can run parallel to each other, he suggested. However, nothing is finalized at the time being. I think The Division 1 should continue and Part 2 is a kind of alternative way for the players. I do not know what happens but we are very open about this though. The Division took us to New York while The Division 2 paves the way for us to visit Washington. Both stories are connected in the sense that the Division agents are the ones trying to secure the capital from the same infection that devastated New York. Ubisoft previously mentioned that no major updates for the first game will come out anymore. They have reached their goal … [Read more...] about The Division 2 Doesn’t Mean an End for The Division 1

Very recently we came to know that Fallout 76 won’t be launching on Steam, which got fans wondering about the intentions Bethesda has for of leaving all of their future games, from Steam as well. Well, you can have a little faith that Fallout 76 avoiding steam, does not entirely mean the same for all other Bethesda games. Bethesda’s Pete Hines said that when they announced Fallout 76 to not launch on Steam, they were not referring to all other future games. They were exclusively referring this to Fallout 76.

Hines talking about Fallout 76 avoiding steam in an interview, being exclusively available on Bethesda.Net, arose one of the biggest concerns that what does it mean, for the future games? Well considering what Hines has said, fans can at least be sure that not all future games will leave … [Read more...] about Fallout 76 Avoiding Steam Doesn’t Mean The Same For Others
I should probably have used “Right of First Offer” instead of “Right of First Refusal”. All that it means is that the employer and the employee have an obligation to negotiate with each other first and in good faith. Thus, the employee could not demand an exceedingly lopsided deal to avoid selling to her employer and then accept a similar deal from a different publisher later - that’s negotiating in bad faith. Similarly, the employer could lowball the employee with an offer, but the employee is not required to take it if she thinks that the offer isn’t good enough. The key words here are “good faith”.This week we continue the Design Phase of the FANTa Project![What is the FANTa project?] [Git the FANTa Project]Got a burning question you want answered? … [Read more...] about re: right of first refusal, does that mean you…

A research conducted by the Unversity Of Hamburg aimed to find out how does the Loot Boxes actually work in the video games. And according to their finding, there are too many elements of gambling present in the current loot boxes monetization structure. On top of that, the German Youth Protection Commission upon viewing the results of this research are seriously considering to ban Loot Boxes in Germany. If Loot Boxes are deemed a platform for gambling then it will presumably be violating the laws against promotion of gambling to children and adolescents. Keeping this in mind, Youth Protection Commission will be making its decision regarding the Loot Boxes in March. Also, the chairman of the commission Wolfgang Kreißig said that it is not something too difficult to comprehend. To him its pretty simple; if these Boxes violate existing regulations to protect the children and adolescents then the ban will surely be implemented. This is not the first time any country has … [Read more...] about Loot Boxes May Possibly Get Banned In Germany; What It Could Mean for Video Games?
