This week: are Lootboxes the next big wave of DLC? Valve allows DOTA2 to make their own broadcasts. And should tournaments continue their practice of region locking?

This week on Checkpoint Radio – a massive discussion has kicked off in the video gaming community about Lootboxes. The ESRB has ruled that Lootboxes don’t constitute gambling and two of the biggest AAA releases, Star Wars: Battlefront II and Middle Earth: Shadow of War, will have extensive Lootbox programs. Is this just the way that the gaming industry is evolving?

The corresponding Checkpoint Podcast episode is: Episode 25 – The Cold Ones
