    Switch-One thing to consider: The more difficult it is to find a product, the more searches and hits there are looking for them.


    UK Lootbox Gambling-All it will take is for someone to sell their account to make a lootbox scenario have a "cash-out" value.


    Eidos Montreal-Will the next Deus Ex tap into the hell that is "sustained revenue" since the previous single player story game didn't do as well as they hoped?


    Joss Whedon-He has no issue with killing a main character - even the titular character of a story. Weirder yet is that the death of the main protagonist doesn't end the story. With him, you never know who's going to survive. If done well, that's a useful trick to make people invest more into the characters - everyone is in peril. If done poorly, it will be seen as just a trick to try to make people invest more into the characters - everyone is expendable. We'll see what he does.


    MCU-Marvel needs to take care when trying to tie all loose ends up at the same time. I wouldn't do it like that. It's too much to cram into 1.5 to 3 hours of watching. Wars are not won in a single battle unless it's a video game which has hours upon hours available to resolve such battles (or unless it's LotR).

    I have enjoyed the last 2 Deus Ex games. Glad it is still on the table.

    Didn't agree with Deus Ex Mankind Divided preorder system though.
