Do players really like loot boxes, or are game publishers forcing them on us?

Electronic Arts has brought the long-simmering debate over the potentially exploitative nature of loot boxes to a boil. Fans found the grind to unlock items and characters in Star Wars Battlefront II  so egregious (nearly 40 hours of regular play for a single character) that they gave EA’s response to the controversy on Reddit the dubious honor of most downvoted post in the platform’s history .

Wren V3US/V3USP Wireless Speaker Review

Compared to big names like Bang & Olufsen or Sonos, Wren is a relative unknown in the home audio game. In fact, the whole Wren lineup comprises just two speakers – the V5 and the V3 – in several configurations. That said, we were impressed with the V5  when we reviewed it a few years back, so we took the V3US – the company’s most recent release – for a whirl, and we’re glad we did. The V3US sounds and looks great, offering a classy and ...

Swing and a miss: Why Virtual Reality Is Striking Out With Sports Fans

People of the world, we have been deceived. The sky isn’t filled with flying cars, we can’t plug into the Matrix (unless I’m already in it), and despite lofty promises, VR has done next to nothing to make watching sports any better. In the last few years, nearly every major sporting league dabbled in virtual reality, promising fans a better sports viewing experience than they get from “ordinary” TV. Watch boxers Canelo Alvarez and Gennady G...

Razer Basilisk review

The problem with gaming mice  is that they all have just one purpose – that is, to be a mouse. There’s only so much you can cram into the palm-sized device, and only so many ways manufacturers can differentiate their products from the competitors without a profound change in the general mouse design. There’s no gaming-changing mouse, and likely never will be, so companies are looking for unique ways to make their solutions “special.” Enter ...
