Nope. Nope nope nope. Burn it in a fiery conflagration of flaming doom. I don't care about loot boxes as a rule (I don't like paying for random drops), but the instant you make the items have power in game, you've crossed a line. Unless said game is free to play. But even then, it's kinda...aggravating. Pay to win.The main reason I bring it up is because Shadow of War (the sequel to Shadow of Mordor) will have loot boxes. In the single-player campaign. These loot boxes can be bought with in-game currency or a "premium" currency (And of course, the best loot boxes can't be bought without premium currency), and drop orcs. Yeah, orcs are a drop. This is actually not a bad thing (The presence of orcs as loot, that is, the loot boxes are still BS), because they're used to help you out in the game, and can be used in the multiplayer mode. But it's just so scummy I can't help but feel that EA, Konami, and Ubisoft are looking at Warner Brothers and going "Too far, mate."
That brought the game from "Maybe I'll get it on sale" to "I don't think I'll ever get it." Because screw that sort of business behavior.
Oh, and maybe it was wrong to portray EA in a somewhat positive light, because Battlefront 2 will have loot boxes too. Joy. And they are items with actual numerical advantages, no less. Perfect.
Got some electronic music for you. Might have shown you this before, but....
