Description

This week, we dig into the legislation proposed in the United States Senate that would severely limit the ability of game developers to include loot box microtransactions in their games. We discuss whether loot crates constitute gambling, and talk about what might happen if developers and publishers lose the revenue stream found through microtransactions.

EA Access finally got announced for PlayStation this week, and a new Ghost Recon game is on the way. We discuss Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and talk about whether it's worth picking up in October. Sony also held another State of Play where some new games were announced. We run down the list - some of them have us excited.

Respawn has been busy, as 770K players have been banned from Apex Legends since April 1st. Finally, we preview what Bethesda might do at E3 2019, and discuss what they need to do to have a successful showing at the biggest gaming show of the year.

We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions - including new voice mail questions -  in our Fan Mail segment! To become part of our awesome community, just use the links below:
