Rainbow Six Siege Dev Defends Limited Run Loot Boxes

Rainbow Six Siege Dev Defends Limited Run Loot Boxes

Rainbow Six Siege will be rolling out loot boxes for a limited run, and brand director, Alexandre Remy, has stepped in early to defend the decision. The loot boxes will be a part of the Outbreak event pegged for March 6, and will be available to purchase alongside the existing free alpha packs that reward players with cosmetic items. “I feel like the loot boxes act like the gift shop after the rollercoaster,” Remy told MCV. “I am feeling very empathetic towards players upset with this, but at the same time I do not feel we are cheating anyone, I don’t think we are being greedy whatsoever.” Continue reading…

Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Scorecard

Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Scorecard

The first season of Star Trek: Discovery ended on Sunday, and audiences, as with many Star Trek shows before it, find themselves facing a mixed bag. We should recall that this was also true of the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation: While it introduced a cast of indelible characters that would eventually prove to be more than worthy successors to Kirk and company, the storytelling was slow, and the tone was shaky. This also goes for Deep Space Nine, a show that struggled to find stories for its first season but hit a pretty powerful stride a little later. Voyager and Enterprise also started shaky, and eventually found their feet. Arguably. Discovery has had 15 episodes to prove itself, and like its forebears got a lot of stuff right and a lot of stuff wrong. The highs were high and the lows were low, and it’s time to consider whether or not the season was, overall, a net gain. Spoilers, of course, follow for the season. Continue reading…
