Disclosing odds is a basic step that is years late, and most likely too late since now real regulators are moving to remove gambling mechanics such as this from products that children have easy access to. So they are disclosing after years of resistance a mechanic that likely will be ...

This is the first time I 've heard a Skinner 's Box described as a Surprise Toy . That does sound a lot better though.

I generally support such legislation but as Victor says, some of these definitions are wide open to interpretation. So the question becomes, who is responsible for this interpretation The USA, at least at the Federal level, is currently not in a regulatory mood. So would we actually police these rules ...

I wonder what is unclear about the situation, in the eyes of Nintendo

When I presented at the 2013 International Consumer Protection and Enforcement Network ICPEN summit in Panama, there were two conspicuous absences among the 79 regulatory member nations: the USA and China.

I 've written a number of articles on the subject of diversity and inclusion over the last 18 months for Gamasutra. Probably most of my articles in that time are on this subject, because it is increasingly a subject that we as an industry are getting wrong and it 's ...

Thank you, I found that quite stimulating : Making the game predictable to the developer while giving the illusion of unpredictable for the user is always a very difficult paradox. When the game is essentially single player, this is much easier to solve on the predictable for the developer side, ...
