I am currently playing through the SP campaign for The Division. I'm not interested in buying any loot boxes, but was surprised to find myself a little envious of other players running around in cool looking outfits.

The timing of this article on Apex Legends loot boxes was therefore perfect:

I opened 100 Apex Packs to get a real-world example of what of a significant spend would yield in Apex Legends. My results were significantly better than the published odds would indicate, but I was still underwhelmed by my haul.

It's worth noting that the "real name" fields can be filled with whatever you want as they're not used for billing. Mine just repeated my Origin username.

Electronic Arts is coming back to Steam after eight years of being absent on the distribution platform.
I assume this just means that Origin gets launched from steam [-X
