    Overwatch did loot boxes done right my ass. Does nobody talk against this game just because its Blizzard? It should be a free to play title with micro-transactions like say Paladins or Smite.

    Im my opinion loot boxes should only exist in a game that is free to play like the billions of mobile games that exist.

    This is why I like Nintendo. Played so many of their games last year. Never had to drop a penny on a loot box. And they do DLC right. So much DLC they give out free, look at what they do with Splatoon 2.

    Aww, poor Gus, such a faithful Star Citizen fan. Anyone know his handle? I want to gift him an Aurora

    It looks like there is a disc-shaped light bulb behind the camera. Maybe Gus should wear his glasses more often so we can see what's behind the camera.

    Mtx and loot boxes are just flat out evil greed being implemented bg evil men with evil agendas. I mean its not like the gaming industry was dying and they needed a way to recoup losses. The gaming industry is booming and is more popular than ever!! Theres just no need for it!! I mean if you wanna implement mtx and loot boxes into games in such a crazy high amount then at least make your gamr free to play. Theres just no excuse for it.

    2018 Predictions: Lootboxes will not be outlawed this year, not until a realistic 2019. Anthem will flop and be drubbed leading to the effective death of Bioware and Dragon Age and EA taking a hit. In December the PS5 will become available for purchase. More Indie games will be played then ever with greedy AAA companies not ending their greed and the best game of the year Pillars Of Eternity 2 will win the best Indie game of the year at the VGA.

    I swear if they did put loot boxes in kingdom hearts they will see the true rage of gamers.

  • JManPlays 05 / 01 / 2018 Reply

    I think game that have small transactions should do like what Monster Hunter World is doing.

    You buy the full game, get free small DLC like new monsters.
    But can buy cosmetics like skins.

    Kindom hearts 3 for the Playstation six! ;P

    Loot boxes are 100% gambling. They do not need to be outlawed Because gambling is not allowed in most states. And for those states that allow it you must be of legal age. So unless these developers want to stick a 21 and up or 18 and up rating on there games they will figure out another way to unfairly milk your money

    Interesting how the last console generation felt "long." PS2 was out for 6 years before PS3 came out and PS3 was out for 7 years before the PS4 came out. And for reference, PS1 was out for 5 years before PS2 came out. With PS4 released in 2013, it's not crazy to think that the PS5 will release in 2019.

    I legit looked at the title of this video and called bullshit thinking that 2018 was years away and how could they know that far into the future. wtf!

    Not a big fan of regulation, but I wouldn’t have a problem with banning loot boxes or micro transactions in full price games

    My prediction: The next Nintendo Switch hardware revision is now on the drawing board. Remember last week when there was talk about the 64GB game card? (not memory card, different thing). We might hear something about this during E3.
