Gamers Are Overreacting To Lootboxes, Publishers Should Raise Prices?

While the entire gamer community is rallying against lootboxes and predatory practices in the industry, one Wall Street analyst seems to think differently. Evan Wingren, an analyst at KeyBlanc Capital Markets said in a report to his clients that gamers had taken the EA’s poor handling of microtransactions as a rallying point to protest against all of microtransactions in the industry. He said that gamers were not being overcharged for games, instead paying a lot less than the games should actually cost. “We view the negative reaction to Star Wars Battlefront 2 (and industry trading sympathy) as an opportunity to add to Electronic Arts, Take-Two, and Activision Blizzard positions. The handling of the SWBF2 launch by EA has been poor; despite this, we view the suspension of MTX [...

French Troops Make Their Way To Battlefield 1 In DLC

Fans were disappointed when EA and DICE announced that at the time of release, Battlefield 1 will only feature Britain, Germany, the United States, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Italy and the Ottomans. However, players predicted that the French will be added through DLCs, and it seems they were correct. They Shall Not Pass, the expansion planned for release in early March 2017 will introduce the French armies. Also, the official Battlefield 1 Season Pass official product page says that “an upcoming expansion will bring the Russian Empire into the battle.” With a price tag of $49.99, the Season Pass adds new Operations, Elite classes, game modes, vehicles, 16 multiplayer maps, 20 games, 14 dog tags and 14 Battlepacks. These will become available post-release on a monthly basis starting...

Titanfall 2 Single-Player Inspired By DOOM, Wolfenstein: The New Order

Unlike the first title that was completely a multiplayer experience, Titanfall 2 will include a single player campaign which will compliment the multiplayer. The fans had asked for it, the developers are giving it to them, and from the sound of it, it may turn out to be brilliant after all. In an interview with IGN, designer Mackey McCandlish stated,”I think having made as many games as some of the people on the team have, we start to look for opportunities to stretch our limbs and make something that would excite us,” McCandlish said. “We’ve all been influenced by Half-Life and Bioshock and didn’t really have the opportunity to bring that level of pacing and player-centric conflict to games like Call of Duty that are so much about a squad. So this was a reall...

Dragon Age: Inquisition mods are actually a thing

Dragon Age: Inquisition looks like it will indeed be getting mods, contrary to popular belief, with work on a particular modding tool proceeding apace.As stated on the Nexus Mods page, DAI Tools’ goal is to make a Skyrim-alike creation kit, so anyone can modify the assets in Inquisition. DAI Tools has been available since December 19, with the most recent update being a special Christmas present. That, or just one that happened to be on Christmas Day, who knows? At the time of writing all you can mod is some Skyhold outfit colours, but the fact you can do this shows a promising start for a game a lot of assumed would just remain unmodded. No word as of yet if EA is sharpening its ban-hammer, or even if it’s something that needs to be sharpened. But I for one would hope everythi...

Dragon Age: Inquisition Launch Trailer – A Wonderful World

Inquisition launches today for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Battlefield 4: Premium Edition Hits Consoles, PC This Month

I think it is safe to say that EA had a hard time with Battlefield 4 when it was launched, as in that it didn’t ummmm….work. Fans were outraged when they found glitches in the game after eagerly awaiting its launch. However now there is no such issue anymore. And to perhaps celebrate this, Electronic Arts is re-releasing the game in Premium Edition form, with all add-on content included as part of the game’s season pass packed in. It’s a $60 package that hits retail on October 21, 2014.   The weird thing is that the game is listed for release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows and Xbox One, but not for Xbox 360. Battlefield 4 Premium Edition is pretty much the same as the main game plus a subscription to EA’s “Premium” season pass. Other than the five DLC add-ons — Second Assaul...
