Not Enough Resources: Episode 22 - Destiny 2, Apple and loot boxes, Game of the Year 2017
Dylan was gifted a copy of Destiny 2, and he explores the odd pairing of first-person shooter and MMO. Ryan is riding the high from Star Wars The Last Jedi by diving head first into 2010's Star Wars: The Old Republic and its two most recent expansions, Knights of the Fallen Empire and Knights of the Eternal Throne.
The loot box conversation continues! Apple has updated their developers terms of service to require games that have a randomization purchasing element to disclose drop rates. We speculate on how this might effect the industry going forward, and what it means to have a storefront regulate these practices rather than legislation.

The Game of the Year for 2017 for Not Enough Resources is Cuphead. Read our review.
