Pre-Orders, Season Passes, & Loot Boxes – Fair or Rip Off? | Live w/TGF! Ep 12

This week’s episode is all about our thoughts on pre-orders, deluxe editions, and season passes. More games these days are piling up extra content to purchase for games just for the full experience. Loot boxes, once only for free to play games, have now infiltrated our full retail price games and many do not feel it’s right. We discuss the state of loot boxes, and how they can affect our favorite gaming experiences.

Live w/ TGF is TheGameFanatics.com’s weekly podcast recorded live on Twitch.tv/thegamefanatics and Mixer.com/thegamefanatics Tuesdays at 8pm PST. Each week we get together to talk about our favorite games, current gaming trends, and other video game related topics.
