2017 was undoubtedly the year of the loot box. But just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, 2018 gave us another year filled with RNG loot, micro-transactions in $60 games, and more special editions then you can shake a stick at. Let’s dive in and take a look at the disappointing trend of monetization in video games.8
So I recently posted a video about No Man’s Sky NEXT coming to Xbox on July 24th urging people not to buy it. It’s probably not the game they are looking for, and at $50 two years after it’s initial release, it’s not worth it in my opinion. Problem is, only NMS fans are searching for info on NMS.
I want to talk about No Mans Sky. Specifically the NEXT update, and I don’t mean the update that is coming next, but rather the update called NEXT. It’s coming to Xbox on July 24th, and I strongly recommend that you save your money and skip this game.

Over the weekend, Windows Central got its hands on an apparent internal Microsoft presentation from earlier this year detailing plans for the impending rollout of robust mouse-and-keyboard support for the Xbox One. The presentation, which was developer-focused, suggested an April API rollout to developers ahead of a planned fall announcement of support for players. Great for player choice, but could this be the death of Xbox?
