Yup loot boxes are actually coming under fire again. Guess there was a proposal to audit loot boxes and sales tactics concerning said items conducted at the Federal level by the Trade Commission.

Check this search out:
loot box federal trade commission - Bing[^]

Fallout 76 personifies everything everyone has flamed Bethesda about over the last decade; fan boi cash grabbing even after Bethesda gamers warned them about that tendency has now come back to bite them and deeply. Gamers are not stupid and the Fallout franchise is not bullet proof.

Diablo Immoral (not a typo lol) was misunderstood due to poor marketing execution. I suspected that the mobile game was a precursor to an impending, highly secret Diablo 4 release; leaks + hype concerning D4 would further solidify my argument and would also appear that the normal development practices of flagship IP done in a black-box is still in wide use. I perceive that general opinion concerning Diablo IP was skewed significantly with their acquisition by Activision and Diablo players are expecting the worse case scenario for all Blizzard IP franchises. Basically, Diablo Immortal got the jump scare execution, but I think that once D4 hits release the mobile platform will gain considerable momentum, especially if the two are tied into one-another somehow.
I was unaware of that...
