    Investigating Overwatch's Stingy Loot System

    Overwatch loot boxes can contain duplicates. One of the issues with their system is that you can spend real money just to get 4 items you already own, which are replaced by credits one fifth the value of the item. This means instead of getting the 4 new items you paid to get, you get 4/5 of one...

    Mass Effect 3's Ending Won't Affect Andromeda

    Of course Bioware aren't... the EA executives that hold onto their leashes are! More off topic: Geez, do you remember when the biggest issue splitting the videogame world was the Mass Effect 3 ending? No gamergate, no Social Justice, no feminism, just pure videogame issues, and we got so...
