In the ever-evolving drama surrounding unfair microtransactions in EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront II, people are seeking government action in regulating the gambling associated with loot boxes. But will this type of action help or hurt gaming? Brendan Frye leads the discussion as the team reflects on the actions taken by French Senator Jérôme Durain, Belgium Minister of Justice, Koen Geens, and Hawaiian State Representative, Chris Lee.

Pai, a former Associate General Counsel at Verizon Communications Inc., is looking reverse Net Neutrality in the United States. The team discuss the ramifications this might bring and the potential of this event taking place.
