@420_Lux: @4Score7Pongs I am offended Jared said loins I would like a refund. Also I play switch 95% of the time handheld. Shaun really shows his age this week.

Shawn Nagle: When it comes to loot boxes, I have no issues…as long as they don’t give you in game advantage. You can choose to buy the boxes that are cosmetic. I like new skins and mounts in heroes of the storm. It adds to a game where you are pretty much doing the same thing over and over.
