Lootboxes remain one of the biggest controversies in gaming, as it blew up in a big way with Star Wars Battlefront II over this past week. We dive into this topic tonight and explore this issue in games, and if we think it is something that will go away anytime soon, or if it is here to stay. Then we get into our gaming weeks, and "celebrate" the music gaming milestone that falls on the weekend of our show. Also in the news: * Blizzard Overwatch reporting system * The Game Awards * FFXV...

Digital Distribution may be the way the industry is headed, at least according to recent earnings reports from some major companies. How do we feel about digital games versus physical games? Although we've had this topic before, we visit it again to see if feelings have changed, and if we agree with what these companies are saying, or not. We get into some comments on this topic from not just our live chatters, but our VOGNetwork Discord server as well. Also in the news: * Sony Paris Week...

Loot boxes seem to be all the rage in gaming right now, with them showing up not only in mobile games we've played before, but in popular games like Overwatch and now recent releases like Shadow of War. How do we feel about Loot boxes, and who do we think is doing them right and maybe not so right? Of course, some people on the internet have taken some of the loot boxes into their own hands as one recent release has infinite loot boxes spawned. We cover this and the weeks news on another...

We are back after a week off while Rob was at DragonCon, and we start by recapping the news from the week we were gone, including news of Miiverse coming to an end. Is this Nintendo social network gone too soon, or was it something that needed to go? We discuss this as well as controversial DRM for Sonic Mania that made it's way onto the Steam release... which of course was hacked within 8 days. You know what they say, #hackersgonnahack.

Preorders for the SNES Classic left many people frustrated this week. Who is ultimatley to blame for all this frustration? We try to figure out how this can be prevented in the future-- if it can be at all. Then after our gaming weeks, we get into gaming news for the week including similar pre-orders for the Xbox One X, which one e-mailer messages us about. Also, it sounds like data transfer for existing Xbox One owners to the X will be pretty easy, but you might still want to set aside a...

Some major updates have hit No Man's Sky in an update released this week. What do we think at this point? Should more people give this game a chance? Should those that originally bought the game take a second look? Or was this a wasted effort when Hello Games should just move on to something else? We discuss our thoughts on tonight's program about this surprise new update. We also catch up on our gaming weeks from our unplanned hiatus, and cover more gaming news. Also in the news: *...

One Playstation Network title may have taken it's "easy" platnium trophy marketing a bit too far.
