The USgamer Podcast is our weekly flagship podcast that is updated every Wednesday. You can find the previous episodes here.
In the latest episode of the USgamer Podcast, I sub in for Nadia to talk with Mike and Caty about Final Fantasy XV's bizarre VR fishing game, Animal Crossing on mobile, and Hellblade's success story. I also rants. A lot. (download link here)!
The loot box controversy continues to heat up, and it's more evident with each passing day that EA really, profoundly screwed up. Now government regulators are involved, and well, it's suddenly looking pretty bad for loot boxes. Honestly, we've been building to this moment for a long time, and I'm glad to see that the reckoning has finally come. I have thoughts. Loud ones.
