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

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.

    ZeniMax claims that Oculus VR illegally misappropriated trade secrets. The lawsuit (PDF), filed today, also says that Luckey and Oculus were in breach of contract and unfair competition.

    "All efforts by Zenimax to resolve this matter amicably have been unsuccessful."

    Oculus Rift is Coming to Select Chuck E. Cheese's Locations

    Watch Dogs Creative Director Shares More Specific PC Requirements

    We already know that Watch Dogs has some rather lofty system requirements for the PC version of the game. Earlier today, Jonathan Morin, the Creative Director for Watch Dogs, shared some more specific details on how the game will run on less than optimal hardware.

Not only that, but the game may not even boot if PC gamers are not equipped with 6GB of RAM. When a fan asked Morin whether the game would run on his PC system that was equipped with 4GB of RAM, Morin replied and said th
