This is a follow-up to Star Wars Battlefront II's Loot Box Problem, posted on VOG earlier this week. Late Thursday, EA's Star Wars account tweeted that they had “turned off in-game purchases for #StarWarsBattlefrontII.” defusing part of an extremely contentious issue that erupted into a PR nightmare for both the game and the company on the eve of the game's highly publicized release.

Battlefront II's release this week is also highlighted by the growing debate over loot boxes – specifically those that players believe to be P2W (pay to win). The arguments supporting this vary from the corporate side of things (additional revenue channel needed to fund expensive development for this and future projects) to those completely opposed to it (introducing unfair advantages in multiplayer between the haves and the have-nots).

Does anyone remember Bubsy the Bobcat for the SNES and Megadrive/Genesis? I sure do, and man, was it not a very fun game that inexplicably got a few sequels, and a failed pilot for a cartoon show. [...] But fast-forward to 2017 and now there's a sequel that no one actually asked for. And the result is better than you'd expect, but not as good as it should have been.

The internet really loves their cats, and cat memes, so it was only inevitable that given enough time, cats would conquer videogames. And now, it's the action RPG genre's turn to get invaded by our furry feline friends. While the game is pretty basic, there's still quite a bit to enjoy here.

The saga of Clementine continues in this latest installment on the Walking Dead videogame series, although she is no longer the focus of the story. Instead the story centers on a Hispanic family who is always traveling on the road. But after time fro playing the other two series, this installment might be an indicator that Telltale might not be able to keep going much longer.

I'm going to say this straight away: I love this movie. Given the turbulent history of the DC Expanded Universe (DCEU) since the release of Man of Steel in 2013, there was the overwhelming concern that it could not get things going with any of its films. In effect, the DCEU has been flailing in the dark, while "rival" comics giant Marvel keeps churning out hit after hit. Wonder Woman can now at least make the claim of being the first universally beloved DC superhero film since 2008's The Dark Knight.

There are 2D and 3D platformers out there to play to your heart's content, but no one seems to care about the discarded middle. That's where Snake Pass comes in. Modeled like a 3D platformer, but Sumo Digital has decided to eschew the actual gameplay of a 3D platformer. Instead, you take on a role in which one of the main elements of platforming is missing. Namely, the ability to jump. What follows is something that feels more like QWOP or Octodad. This approach leads to an interesting and fun game, despite the challenges of a setup where you'll be fighting the learning curve of the mechanics paired with a troublesome camera.

I did a preview of this game awhile back, and now that I've found the time to give Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King a full review. It's a Zelda clone action-RPG, but with loads of cuteness attached to it in the form of The Princess Bride style commentary. That's a feature that helps this game stand out from your typical Zelda clones.

Kara no Shojo was a great adult horror detective story that also had a prequel with Catagra. The last story ended with the disappearance of Toko, who became important to Reiji. While this game is technically a sequel, it has a story that's largely disconnected from resolving that plotline. It might possibly be due to the fact that answering that question wouldn't take long, and the writers needed a large enough story to draw readers in. Which is why the the story’s focus is on how awful traditions can turn people who devote themselves into monsters, and enchain those who are caught in the middle. Thankfully the story is still good enough on it's own to justify it's existence. Even if there are pacing issues.
