Now Playing –
Dylan has finally gotten his own Switch, and is exploring 2017’s Game of the Year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Things he loves? Cooking and playing the game for more than 30 minutes at a time. Meanwhile, Ryan dives back into the Gears of War series for the first time since 2011’s Gears of War 3 with the Gears 5 beta. Turns out slowing down a bit makes shooters fun?
UK Parliament has determined things like FIFA Ultimate Team Packs are not considered gambling. After discussing this at length, Ryan challenges Dylan’s concept of what a loot box is, while Dylan’s primary concern is how these games keep closing up and taking players purchases with them once the service shuts down. The debate of physical versus digital goods comes up a lot, as we try to figure out how to place value on digital purchases.
Competitive Corner –
The 2-2-2 lock for Overwatch League is real, and after one week of play it is already shaking up the standings and the players. This meta shift should hit live servers here in the next couple weeks! In addition to the 2-2-2 lock, Blizzard also revealed their next hero, a gravity manipulating tank named Sigma.
In a sad note, we here at Not Enough Resources would like to extend our deepest condolences to the StarCraft 2 community, who lost a bright star in the scene. Geoff ‘iNcontroL’ Robinson passed away last week and the Starcraft 2 scene, and esports, will never be the same. He will be missed.
