    That's about right. And it's Trey and Matt who do stuff like this for sport.

    Still, you'd think some suit in a Subway boardroom somewhere would have thrown a conniption to a lawyer. Ubisoft went there and they seem to have gotten away with it. That's chutzpah.

    How has Subway not dropped a jumbo-sized lawyer train on Ubisoft for the Jared boss fight?

    There's fair use, and then there's THAT.

    Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp definitely feels like an AC game. But with the mobile pay to reduce timers model added to it.

    I'll be leaving Sony for the first time, but really the only thing I think I would miss is The Show and quite frankly you have to get pretty deep into that game for maximum enjoyment so it's probably for the best.

    With that being said, any awesome Xbox One S deals?
    S is only 249 normally now. With black friday deals running already, id bet you can get a pretty nice price .

    So I’ve play MTG competitively for the last 6-7 years after getting into the game shortly before that.

    So there’s not any cards that are obsolete, they have something called the Reserved List, which is a list of cards they’ve said they will not reprint. Not all of those cards have real value, it just depends on their competitive playability. The competitively played cards on that list though are a really good investment. The game isn’t going away anytime soon and there’s only a finite number of those cards that gradually keeps getting smaller.

    When I was buying baseball cards at least I got a piece of gum. That's a tangible, physical item...kind of...

    I forget which year of NHL it was but there was the game mode where you collect the cards of certain players all on various teams and can play online against other people who have cards etc. It definitely is the first time I remember loot boxes being a thing basically.

    They say that loot boxes are only cosmetic and don't affect gameplay but it's clearly not true, certain guys just bought a bunch of packs of cards and got full NHL rosters while some of my better players were from the Brandon Wheat Kings. The other thing was you'd earn points during games to get a new deck of cards or what have you (the basic pack obviously with no good players) so that you could at least extend the contracts of your current players but if for whatever reason you didn't earn enough points and your contracts were out you weren't allowed to just play a man short. So you literally had to buy a loot box to keep playing that mode . I think I spend $5 to get some NHL players but it's a total racket.

    Nowadays I only play Battlefield 1 basically and am not paying for anything beyond the premium pack (that's also a racket but at least you get the new maps even if they aren't as good as the originals).

    I find it hilarious we both posted about Magic almost simultaneously. I think I bought a starter deck back in grade school. Don’t think I did anything more.

    Back when I was buying cards, you are either purchasing by the pack, or purchasing by the case. The packs were all numbered, so if you tracked them, you could get a good idea of what cards were in the pack. If you didn't track your pack numbers, then yes, it was a little bit of a gamble.

    Loot crates in the game, from the sound of it, have contents that are almost entirely random, unless you pay an extra premium to guarantee a certain character.
