Juliamon: ooh there's so many though!
Earthenone: the autumnal rumble for me :)
PharaohBender27: Walking outdoors is pretty pleasant in autumn - air is nice and brisk
Juliamon: I'm gonna go with apple-picking
Saxpython: @juliamon +1 Apples and Pumpkins all day

GapFiller: they dont call em the Antipodes for no raisn
NovaTiempo: Walk around in the wild? are you mad? :p
Earthenone: i cant walk around in the wild, i dont have any pokemon
TheMerricat: esrb is two things in the US, a rating and a group.
KingfisherGames: cheer50 So... does this also shift real-money lootboxes to 18+?
LordZarano: bbfc doesn't have an announcer either, they just show the symbol
kusinohki: the original eevee was a casino prize wasn't it?
Juliamon: Yeah
atinyspacemarine: hello people
TheMerricat: @KingfisherGames No, but lootboxes get their own 'box' on the pegi rating
KingfisherGames: They got rid of the gamecorner in Gen 3 remakes... but I don't know how they'd abandon it for a remake of Gen 1 (it's kinda core to the story, though I guess you could change the front to something else)
Earthenone: i imagine a lot of people searching for 18+ pokemon will be disapointed under this new system
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
MagicalAttackGecko: FBtouchdown
Ignatiuspants: I think, by that system, Casino Night Zone would be acceptable, but the Golden Saucer wouldn't be?
saiarcot895: LUL
NovaTiempo: lrrWOW lrrPAUL
kusinohki: curious what Paul's roulette system is...
GapFiller: this sounds like The Miracle decision re adult content in movies which did for the Hays Code back in the 50's (ie if its not the focus its fine)
KingfisherGames: @TheMerricat why is it not enough to get it shifted above a 3?
DeM0nFiRe: Gold Saucer is interesting because IIRC you are guaranteed to get more out than you put in for the things that are chance
KingfisherGames: like, it looks like its separate than the actual rating
The_FlyingDutchman: probably just when gambling is something you can play as a side to the story. Like the pokemon casino. The teaching part is strange though
TheMerricat: @KingfisherGames Those were example images from pegi so I don't promise that you can actually make a pegi 3 game with lootboxes, they were just showing what it would look like if you did.
ContingentCat: I think the distinction is if it's only a plot thing and not what you participate in, so if it's in someone's backstory it's fine
The_FlyingDutchman: Considering they removed the casino in the new pokemon, I would think they were brougt up to speed
Juliamon: The slot machine attacks in FF are not gambling, but there's no getting around the chocobo racing
Mai_Andra: FFXIV has a full Mahjong game. I don't remember if it actually lets you gamble on it...
Styxseus: It does makes it 18+ if it hits lootboxes
Mai_Andra: Although, the entire Gold Saucer *looks* like a casino...
TheMerricat: From my reading it has nothing to do with lootboxes.
Styxseus: So it might hit a part of the demographic that they'r targeting with said boxes

PharaohBender27: I can think of a bunch of content in Fallout: New Vegas that would get hit by this law, since you can bet on games of caravan, and play blackjack, slots, and roulette in the casinos
Juliamon: You know what's totally gambling though? The AC Pocket Camp OK Motors game
Mai_Andra: "Gambler" is his class, basically.
SajuukSjet: I think if it gets deemed to have gambling in it, there's a whole section of Gambling Law that might come down on it, and there's additional legal consequences in the UK for that
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 Fallout New Vegas IMO is worthy of a pegi18 just through normal content though.
Ignatiuspants: a good anti-gambling law should ban only lootboxes and, like, games where you use a special currency to file requests for random heroes and stuff

TheMerricat: This isn't a policy going after lootboxes, this is a morality policy, it's attempting to ensure that children aren't being taught that 'gambling is normal'
samwonk: I feel like this is way more clearly an important regulatory issue than the partial nudity and gory violence that the ratings otherwise represent, so...
McArgh: cheer100
TehAmelie: James Bond wouldn't win those games if he didn't get better cards than the villains. . .
SajuukSjet: themerricat: eh... it depends... a lot of gambling law in the UK/EU is, at least as I understood it, preventing predatory practices
BluePlainCreek: do 3 card monte or the shell game count? definetly learned those from games
Mai_Andra: Genshin Impacted my bank account again this week.
LordZarano: Slot machines have hold buttons, does that make them a game of skill?
Japolai: get the loot boxes as a random drop but buy the keys to open them. like TF2
theblakdeth: There's a big "gambling" website where they take a picture of a footballer looking at a ball, they Photoshop the ball out, and you bet which pixel the ball is at. Legally, it counts as a game of skill, but in my opinion, it's pretty much a gamble
Loonatic93: I wonder if this will affect games like "Poker Quest."
TheMerricat: @SajuukSjet right there are anti-gambiling laws out there that are going after lootboxes, _this_ specific policy being put in place by a non-government agency isn't though. it is literally just moving 'gambling elements in your game' to the 18+ pigeonhole.
Laserbeaks_Fury: RDR2 has a lot of games pretty close to gambling

samwonk: RDR2 already is PEGI 18.
MagicalAttackGecko: "your honor, this game is SHIT"
SajuukSjet: themerricat: and i'm interested in if they determine something is gambling, or a representation of, whether national gambling law then kicks in
The_FlyingDutchman: They have no gambling in them
The_FlyingDutchman: they removed it
TehAmelie: i'm curious what the law said before the lobbyists started working on it
The_FlyingDutchman: apparently
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean, yeah, but is it PEGI 18 because of the gambling or the graphic shooting people in the face
couldntpickausername: the rerelease of theseus
kusinohki: aww, but what am I going to do with all these skeet ball tickets?
KingfisherGames: cheer250 the in-game currency thing is actually extremely insidious, because your brain has a harder and harder time assessing value as it goes through conversions from one monetary system to another, particularly when it isn't a 1:1 ratio
TheMerricat: @SajuukSjet Pegi isn't a government agency. like the ESRB it's a foundation formed by the industry itself as an attempt to provide 'regulation' for the industry to follow so that the actual government doesn't come in and do it for them..
SAJewers: πŸ€”
Loonatic93: Given that it is mostly out of touch old people deciding what constitutes deserving of a PEGI 18 rating, I am almost certain that "Poker Quest" is going to be rated PEGI 18 just for having the word "Poker" in the title.

TheMerricat: Seiyuu is genderless in Japanese when announcers use it they'll add the genre to the word to help differentiate female vs male.

Orgmastron: @Drasvin No, I think they got a bunch of money and advertising from Sony
