I played EA’s (Electronic Arts) games when I was young. I was really into it. And honestly, I thought it was one of the better companies. It pains me to see such an important company to have fallen so low with the need for microtransactions and other publishers have followed the same path. But let’s not get stuck what could be done better – everyone has read about the latest controversies. Everyone has their own ideas on what EA should have done. So do I and here they are.
In the recent video games related news, there are a lot of mentions of loot boxes or loot crates from games like Star Wars Battlefront II, Need for Speed Payback and Call of Duty WWII, but I will leave those games and their problems for another time. Those kind of micro transactions have existed in mobile games for quite some time, but for a bit different purpose. I want to use Kingdom Hearts Unchained / Union X as an example of how much impact these transactions have on a localized mobile game.
