On this edition of The Firmware Update, Joe & Malcolm are hours away from a busy weekend that features both The Game Awards and PlayStation Experience. With Hideo Kojima and his superpals all in the LA area, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what’s going to feature prominently at both shows. Other stuff is happening too, though!
Talking Points: Microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II are gone, for now; the possible legislation surrounding lootboxes; a sad end for Marvel Heroes; the stars come out for The Game Awards; get excited, but not too excited, for PlayStation Experience; the Blue Bomber makes a welcome return; Valkyria Chronicles rises from the ashes; not the Portal game we wanted; October 2017 NPD results; Final Fantasy XV keeps on trucking with fresh updates; Deus Ex isn’t dead, but it’s not coming back anytime soon; scabs.
