Star Wars: Battlefront 2 in-game purchases suspended, for now

Rebels can rejoice and celebrate as their days of virtual protests have created enough disturbance in the Force to force the Empire of Arts to relent and reconsider its bid for supremacy and money. It, however, be too soon to call it a complete victory, as the Empire ominously hints that it will be back, but perhaps in a way that will catch gamers unaware.

BioWare’s Anthem mashes up Destiny, Warframe, and jetpacks

BioWare just not so recently launched its fourth major Mass Effect installment, which received rather scathing reviews because of its bugs. Even while it is still recovering from that fall from grace, the game developer is already dipping its toes in waters that might just be as controversial. As earlier rumors have predicted, its new Anthem game revealed at E3 does indeed share some similarities with Destiny. But then again, that is pretty much the standard these days.
