Overwatch update improves loot box drops, Hearthstone follows suit

While Overwatch has seen immense success, one of its more divisive features has been its loot box system. Though Overwatch runs $40 for the standard version on PC and $60 on consoles, players can only unlock new cosmetic items through a F2P-like loot box system. These loot boxes are fairly rare in-game - you get one every time your account levels up, but otherwise you need to purchase them with real-world money - and with that in mind, it really stings when you get cosmetics items you already have.

The best free Netflix alternatives you’ve never heard of (mid-2017)

Somewhere in the vast expanse between Netflix and piracy lies a slew of free, legal streaming services, some more appealing than others. These free services are supported by advertisements -- there's no free lunch, after all -- but they're a solid option for anyone who wants to ditch cable without racking up a similar bill. You've probably heard of the most popular ad-supported service, Crackle, but how about these options?

EA announces A Way Out, a new game that’s entirely co-op

EA's E3 2017 press conference is underway, and though we're seeing a lot of what we expected (sports games, mostly), there was at least one surprise during the show. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons director Josef Fares took the stage to introduce us to his new studio and that studio's first game, A Way Out. A Way Out seems to be a rather unique game, much like Brothers was at the time, as it'll be a purely co-op experience.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War trailer reveals new plot details

It's time for another Middle-Earth: Shadow of War trailer today, and with this one, we're diving into the game's story. We already know that player characters Talion and Celebrimbor will be forging their own ring of power to stand against Sauron and his gathering army, but this trailer goes a bit deeper than the announcement trailer that landed back in February. It should go without saying, but if you want to go into Shadow of War with as little spoiled as possible, then this isn't the trailer for you.
