October 17, 2017 – This weeks most popular story based on user votes is going to be redbox now allowing you to rent switch games.  Keep in mind this is only in a few areas; Portland, Seattle, San Antonio.  For me the biggest piece of news is Crazy Justice announcing cross play between the switch and xbox.  This brings us one step closer to fully open cross play between all consoles and games.

October 10, 2017 – The loot box debate is still going on and now open critic seems to have joined in there.  They are planning a way to distinguish games that have loot boxes in them from other games.  Personally I am fine with loot boxes that only offer cosmetic changes, but others think that is still unfair as it encourages people to waste money getting randomly generated loot when you are only after a specific one.
