Blizzard makes it easier gamers to get new gear in Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard announces an overhaul to its Loot systems in both OverWatch and Hearthstone.

  • The focus is on allowing gamers to have more variety and less duplicates when opening loot boxes while not decreasing the amount of in-game currency players receive.
  • How heavily will this impact the ability to earn all in-game items?

THE LARGER Discussion about loot boxes though is this; every has adopted the loot box system.  For Honor, Injustice 2, Call of Duty, Sports titles, Tekken 7 and many many more.

  • Is this a fad that is going to die out or is this a gaming trend that is now and forever going to be party of the industry? Do YOU want it to stay or not?
  • Is there a point when it’s too much? What is that point?
  • We’ve seen this trend come to a multitude of games but Are there games that absolutely don’t need loot systems that are beginning to have them or converserly are there genres that absolutely should have them but don’t yet?

The Han Solo Film drops The Lego Batman directors and acquires Ron Howard

The untitled Han Solo Star Wars film loses its directors.

  • Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directors that brought us 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie have parted ways with the Han Solo film after shooting nearly all of the film.
  • Veteran director Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Da Vinci Code, Beautiful Mind, Willow) will helm the remaining shoots and reshoots as well as re edit the film. Thoughts???
  • Lucasfilms is now 2 for two in having directorial changes and massive film changes in its “Star Wars Story” line of films. Rogue One also had the same issues.  What seems to be the problem?

What are the games that every gamer MUST play?  Do they even exist?

Opinion Piece:  Must Play Titles; do they exist?

  • We’ve all said it; “Dude, you gotta play this game! It’s Epic” or “How have you not played this game yet!?” We’ve all ripped on a fellow gamer and questioned their gamer cred because they haven’t played XYZ game.
  • Before we discuss whether this is or ever was a valid thing to expect from gamers, If any games even qualify, what sort of games are they?
  • As time, has gone by the gaming culture and available games has changed, but at a point in gaming was there ever a time where that statement was fair to say to another gamer?
  • Is it fair now? Every month more than 35 games release across Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo consoles and PC; and that doesn’t even count the myriad amount of mobile games!  Can we still hold our community to this standard?
