Like the Death Star, EA’s loot box disaster loomed over the release of Star Wars Battlefront II.
Now, the day before the game’s release, it looks like the rebels have won … for now. EA removed “crystals” — which cost IRL cash — from the game on Thursday after fans revolted.
The criticism was that people who spent tons of money would have an unfair advantage during multiplayer battles. Also, that cash wouldn’t just buy cosmetic items — it would give you access to Star Cards, which could give you credits to unlock special characters, including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. (Yes, it’s complicated, and yes, we have an explainer.) Read more…
Get ready to be hit with the nostalgia stick, because a new game inspired by Theme Hospital is coming.
The indie title, called Project Hospital, lets you do a lot of what you loved about the Bullfrog Productions game, including laying out the hospital, hiring staff, and curing patients for profit.

“When is my rest?,” he begged. I pulled him close to me, dominated his weakened mind, put him in my orc stable, and immediately shut down the game.
There’s no finer version
What’s better than another episode of Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer” segment? Having a hilarious guest who also happens to be in the game, as well.
This time, he had The Big Sick‘s Kumail Nanjiani as co-pilot while they explored the upcoming Xbox game Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
It’s all good fun ripping on the characters until Nanjiani reveals, cringing, that he voiced “Dugz the Agonizer,” one of the enemy orcs that they were about to face.
Nanjiani was right to cringe. Because once Dugz shows up on screen and speaks, it sounds exactly like Nanjiani himself — not at all like an orc.
“You didn’t change your voice at all! Did you do that over the phone? What the hell was that!” yells O’Brien, before delivering the final stinger: “He should be called Kumail the Nanjiani.” Read more…
