This has ben a hard day for Xbox gamers, but here are a few very nice news so we do not finish the day in a bad mood.
First of all Phantagram annouced today that Microsoft will publish Kingdom Under Fire: The crusades on all territories. The game will be released this automn and will be playable on Xbox Live.
And even better is what Computer & Videogames revealed today. Half Life 2 is already running on the Xbox. And even better, it should be one of the prettiest games on the console. Imagine graphics on Unreal 2 (PC version) level, with all the Half Life 2 gimmicks, and smooth framerate. Valve will announce more about this version when they will be done with some negatiations with Microsoft.
What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (5 Hours ago)

I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (6 Hours ago)
But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (6 Hours ago)
@Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (6 Hours ago)
but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (8 Hours ago)
