Star Wars: Battlefront II Called Out for Borderline-Abusive Game Mechanics (UPDATED)

I’ve tried to stay away from the loot box shitstorm after a few articles highlighting their insidious bullshit. Apparently, EA wants everyone to keep talking about it with regards to Star Wars: Battlefront II. So I will. These bastards want the venom? I’ll dispense the venom happily! EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront II has been fighting negative publicity for a couple of weeks. Their loot box system, w...[Read More]

The (Single-Player) World is Not Gonna End

It’s the end of the world as we know it! I remember being dropped off at school one day way back in the sixth grade. This was before the NES and stuff. There were a bunch of adults in front of the school that day. They were holding up signs and chanting something I didn’t care to catch. I didn’t care to catch what they were chanting because the signs they held said everything I needed to kno...[Read More]

New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Released

Fellow Digital Crack cohort Punisher and I were anticipating the release of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer last night. When it finally dropped, we had two wildly different opinions of it. He was ecstatic; I was mostly indifferent. We still both want to see the movie; he already purchased his tickets. But maybe my Star Wars fandom has exhausted itself. That has nothing to do with the trailer,...[Read More]

When Movie Trailers Show Too Much

(Ed note: This article will discuss key moments in some movies. Some are much older movies, so if this article spoils the movie for you, too bad, ya shoulda watched it already! But some are more recent. Care will be taken to avoid outright spoiling big plot points, but since these scenes were in the trailers, they’re spoiled already. Still, consider this a blanket spoiler warning.) I’m a huge movi...[Read More]

Loot Boxes Grow in Prevalence and Insidiousness

What ya buyin’? I’m sure most everyone is sick of reading about loot boxes. Trust me, I’m tired of having to bitch about them. Trust me, we’re all going to hate the prevalence of these little gambling boxes way more soon. I recently lambasted Microsoft and Turn 10 for introducing loot boxes into Forza Motorsport 7. Back in August, I did the same to Monolith’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. It ...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: EA Conference

Featuring Star Wars: Battlefront II! Oh, and other stuff… It’s E3 2017, and I’m fake-excited! Last year, I attempted to cover many of the major releases that were shown at E3. By the end of the conference, I was a burned-out husk. For this year’s event, I’ve decided to take a different strategy. I’ll start by highlighting the major conferences, leaving the more in-depth musings for later. Al...[Read More]

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Impressions

Warning: major spoilers ahead!I! No, seriously, extremely major spoilers!!!!! This movie is just amazing! So much passion and, of course, tears. Let’s also not forget the Easter eggs you’re going to find and amazing CGI done in this movie also nods to the Star Wars cartoons, books, and movies. This movie was perfect in every way possible. This fills that little gap in the movie, “A New Hope,” abou...[Read More]

Rogue One Trailer #3 Drops; Featuring AT-ATs and Other Lesser Things

I am naturally a cynic. Whenever I see a trailer, the cynicism pops up and tries to dampen any excitement. The movie won’t be as good. That’s probably the best part. You will end up disappointed. Don’t forget how “great” X-Men: Apocalypse was! For this trailer, my cynical side can officially go suck some wasabi root! This is the latest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wa...[Read More]

Star Wars Battlefront Removes a Feature – and Gamers Rejoice!

Usually, when a developer or publisher removes a feature in a game, player outrage is soon to follow. When EA and DICE removed one particular feature from Star Wars Battlefront, however, players rejoiced. A recent patch for the game, coinciding with the new Death Star expansion, lists a bevy of changes. Tucked well within the “General” section of the patch’s notes is one seemingly-innocuous ...[Read More]
