As foreseen, things have been pretty quiet on Gamersyde this month. We found a bit of time to wake up our PS Vita to capture a bunch of HD videos of some of the games we think are worth checking out, but other than that, not much to talk about. Since the end of the world isn't that near, we will see you next year for a special recap of what happened in 2012 on Gamersyde, and just like we did a year ago, the 5 best games of each of our editors. Until then, have a fun - but reasonable - New Year's eve party!

EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (41 minutes ago)
If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (44 minutes ago)
I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (45 minutes ago)
This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
@crookedmind: what? How did you come to that conclusion? (3 Hours ago)
