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.

  • Internet Connection Required to Watch Quantum Break Cutscenes

    Internet Connection Required to Watch Quantum Break Cutscenes

    In order to save some space on the Xbox One hard drive and on the disc, Remedy has decided to not include the cutscenes for Quantum Break. Instead, the studio will force users to have an Internet connection so that they can stream the content instead. These cutscenes will be live-action and follow each act of the game. Microsoft does say that Xbox One owners will be able to download the cutscenes locally. PC? Well, they didn't say that PC users would be able to download it locally but they did say that the videos would be available at 4K resolution for PC users. So it was a bit of a non-answer while drumming up their 4K line. ...

  • No Man's Sky Listing Shows $60 Price and Pre-Order Date of March 3

    No Man's Sky Listing Shows $60 Price and Pre-Order Date of March 3

    Sony seems to have mistakenly put up a listing for No Man's Sky today on their weekly PlayStation Store update blog. The listing is currently removed for No Man's Sky but it should be noted that it was given a price tag of $60 (USD) and wording that almost made it sound like it would be out this Thursday (March 3). However, it more than likely meant that pre-orders for No Man's Sky would begin on March 3, not that it would actually be out on March 3. The listing was removed to avoid any possible confusion. Then again, it could have also been removed to adjust the price, though many feel that this is the more unlike...
