On the very serious topics of game difficulty and loot boxes (Digitally Uploaded 2017, Episode #34)
We get a little bit serious this week.
Two of the ongoing debates at the moment in the games industry and community are loot boxes (which are appearing in just about every major game release, it seems), and game difficulty (or, whether Cuphead should be easy or hard).
So of course we decide to throw our own opinions out there about these two topics this week. They're important to discuss, because they do impact on a lot of games that we play.
