Live service, always online even in solo mode, guns galore... is this the Suicide Squad game you were hoping for?By Michael Byrne - 3 weeks ago
I loathe free to play style lockboxes. By their nature they're exploitative and try to latch on to all the worst elements of addiction. They don't publish the odds of getting the main prize, so it could be as low as 0.001% (as estimated in Neverwinter's ones). They're designed to get people to gamble real cash frivolously, which itself is usually obfuscated by in-game currencies to make you think you're spending less than you are. Studios exploit further by focussing on lockboxes, then selling subs that give you keys each day to open one -- creating an illusion that the sub is great value.
Just as an aside... would have been better if you'd had popcorn Magicman, just sayin'.
