Hey kids, Blizzard just dropped a bunch of spooky new loot for Halloween. Good for them, I've been looking for an excuse to buy some loot boxes for a while.
For those of you not in the cult of Overwatch, it has a system where every time you level up you get a loot box. The loot boxes can be filled with new characters skins or poses or snappy banter the characters say. They almost never have the exact thing you're looking for in them. If you're too impatient to just earn them you can buy them for like a dollar a piece or something. It's kind of ingenious, el-cheapos like myself feel like they're getting something new and cool to keep them playing and obsessives will spend hundreds of dollars trying to get that really cool new Reaper skin.
I mean I guess it's not great for the obsessives but it's not like anyone is forcing them to buy the loot boxes. It's like the people who spend thousands of dollars on candy crush, that ish is on you my friend.
