NBA 2K19... WTF

I took this shot from the EB Games (Gamestop) store close to home. I don't know if this is the regular version or the deluxe version, but I do know that EB Games is selling new, unopened copies of NBA 2K19 for Nintendo Switch at a price of approximately $129.99 CDN plus tax. Which probably adds up to 140-ish.

A hundred and forty dollars for a video game... and then you have the stupid gambling mechanic that was barred by the Belgian government recently. And these fuckers at 2K Games want Belgian players to convince their government that these loot crate gimmicks aren't gambling.

Yeah, good luck with that, dipshits.

It's one thing when mobile games pull this shit because they're usually free to play and that mechanic is where mobile game makers make their money, but for full-priced games that cost 60, 70, 80, or even 90 dollars... with Deluxe Editions that typically cost way the fuck more...

My brain hurts.

Look, I know the gut instinct would be to cheer Belgium for adopting an anti-loot thing to their video games and treating infractions as criminal... but the last time I checked, Belgium is part of the European Union; a union that recently signed off on an ANTI-MEME LAW.


And you thought North America had dumbfucks running their governments.

"Jean Phillipe... Ban the loot boxes, you Belgian twat."
