EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    This mode places a larger emphasis on teamwork and building, not murder.

    DICE released the latest weekly game mode for Battlefield V earlier today. It's called Outpost and it will be live from today through to next week. It is a 64-player game type playable on Arras and Mercury.

  • Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    A story of romance, black holes, and jazz music.

    Genesis Noir was revealed this past weekend during the PC Gaming Show at E3. It is a unique looking game that will have players exploring themes of romance and science. It explores the idea of black holes and love. It takes place before, during, and after the Big Bang. No, it doesn't have anything to do with the terrible TV show, nor does it have a laugh track, but it does have psychedelic jazz music.

    Genesis Noir is hard to explain for those of us who haven't played it. It's better to take a look at the reveal trailer,...

    Espire 1: VR Operative Announced for PC VR Headsets and PlayStation VR

    It's virtually Metal Gear Solid.

    Digital Lode and publisher Tripwire Interactive announced Espire 1: VR Operative this past week at E3 2019. The VR title utilizes new methods of moving in VR to nearly eliminate the feeling of motion sickness. Espire 1: VR Operative is a game that, at least on its surface, looks like a VR take on a certain tactical espionage action game. That is to say, it's a stealth action title.

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War Announced

    What is dead may never die...

    Rebellion wasn't content with only showing off Sniper Elite VR at this year's E3 event. No sir. In addition to that game, they also announced Zombie Army 4: Dead War this weekend. In development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on PC, Zombie Army 4 seems to fully ditch the "Sniper Elite" and "Nazi" moniker and seems to put less of a focus on long-range engagements.

    Zombie Army 4 is targeting a release in 2020.

    If you don't know about this series yet, the short of it is that you take...

    Extended E3 2019 Gameplay Video for Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Plus, your first look at Tifa.

    Square Enix brought out some big gun arms to open their E3 press conference last night. I'm talking about none other than Final Fantasy VII Remake. The studio showed off quite a bit of new footage, including a lengthy gameplay segment featuring an early game boss fight that most fans are probably super familiar with.

    Not only that, but we were shown the new 1st Class Edition version of the game for those hardcore collectors out there along with a Deluxe Edition. We also get our first look at Tifa in the remake.
