    Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

    This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

    Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

    Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course...

    U.S. Senator Proposes Bill to Ban Loot Boxes and Pay-to-Win Microtransactions

    "Keep ur politics out of muh vidyagams!"

    Representative Josh Hawley announced a new bill that aims to ban loot boxes and pay-to-win (P2W) microtransactions in games that are "played by minors." The senator understands that it's a broad label but clarified that this will include games designed for kids under 18 and games "whose developers knowingly allow minor players to engage in microtransactions."

    Sure, that is still a fairly broad umbrella...

    This is Why Claptrap has a New Voice Actor in Borderlands 3

    David Eddings says Gearbox just didn't want to pay him.

  • Middle-earth: Shadow of War to Finally Remove Microtransactions and Fix Final Chapter Grind Ten Months After Release

    Before it was even released back on September 27, 2017, Middle-earth: Shadow of War was under fire for its rather extensive focus on purchasing chests, or loot crates, using real-world money. Players could "earn" rewards such as powerful AI fighters and other bonuses from these purchased chests.

Because who doesn't like going up against a horde of powerful...
