After two rather lonely livestreams yesterday, now is time to watch some direct feed videos of the game. Again, this is the PC version we're showing you guys today, played with a 360 controller. Although we haven't had time to fully complete this first episode yet, we really enjoyed what we've played so far, making it hard for us to stop after restarting the game a third time. We took our time and spent more than two hours in DONTNOD's new world. We can only advise you to try out the demo if you need convincing, but as for us, we can't wait to see more.

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. (54 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. (57 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. (58 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)
