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.

    Naughty Dog Already Looking at Ideas for The Last of Us 2

    Despite working on Uncharted 4 and poised to release The Last of Us Remastered next week, Naughty Dog is already looking into various ideas for The Last of Us 2.

    Community Strategist, Arne Meyer, revealed the not-so-shocking news in a recent interview with Videogamer.
    "I think we always make a smart decision in that all of our games are self-contained stories so they don't have to continue if we don't want them to or if there's no reason for them to continue. It really comes down to is there something interesting in this universe we've created that we want to continue to explore? Is it something that we can get

  • The International Dota 2 Championship - NewBee vs ViCi Grand Final Starts Now

    This is it. Today, in just a few moments, the Grand Finals kick off for The International Dota 2 Championship. The winner of over $5 million will be determined by the best of five matches. Three wins are all that separates, glory from defeat, a trophy from tears, $5 million from a crappy $1.47 million second place prize. NewBee fought back early to not only secure a spot in the Upper Bracket, but they also sent both Vici and Evil Geniuses back down to the Lower Bracket in the early rounds of the Main Event. ViCi had some insane Lower Bracket matches against CLoud9, Team DK, and Evil Geniuses, all of which they sent home. If you want...

  • Yogscast Allegedly Scamming Yogventure Kickstarter Backers

    Yogscast Allegedly Scamming Yogventure Kickstarter Backers

    Despite the success of the Kickstarter campaign in May 2012 for Yogventures, the Yogscast has revealed that the project is dead. In addition, Lewis Brindley (Xephos) remarks that the company is under "no obligation to do anything" despite receiving over twice their donation goal for the doomed game. Winterkewl Games was the studio that was working on the game. Of the nearly $570,000 raised on Kickstarter, Winterkewl was allotted $415,000 to use on development. $300,000 of that amount was marked for salaries for developers and artists. Of that $300,000 at least $35,000 was paid to one artist that did absolutely no work over a period of two weeks. The reason was due to the artist in question being hired by LucasArts and them not allowing him to continue work on Yog...
