EP90: EA and the Star Wars Battlefront 2 Loot Box Ordeal

We start the show discussing the ethics of loot boxes and microtransactions in many of this fall’s games, including Shadow of War, Destiny 2, Forza 7, and Star Wars Battlefront II. Plus, we break down the news that EA bought Titanfall developer Respawn for more than $400 million, the Xbox One X launch, and Nintendo shutting down its Miiverse social network. Finally, we wrap up the show by talking about games we've been playing recently, including Super Mario Odyssey, Cuphead, Pyre, and Destiny 2.
