Even if it were going free to play tomorrow common business sense is that you vehemently deny it until it happens. If they were confirm the game was going F2P soon sales would take a huge hit because people would be less willing to pay for something they know they can get for free soon.

Apparently some publishers aren't worried about lost sales in between the announcement and execution of a game going to a F2P or free/subscription hybrid model.

SWTOR is going free-to-play, subs dip below one million [Updated]
Vanguard going free-to-play this summer, beefs up dev team
The wait is over: Aion's 3.0 and F2P conversion announced

And it's not subject only to MMOs. Sony: PS Vita price cut in 2013

We can thank LoL and Guild Wars 2 for this. I would personally love to see WoW and these shitty subscription services die out already.

I bought Secret World for $25 last month when Origin had it on sale. I'm not continuing my subscription though. It has a good plot and a good idea but the population isn't really there and it feels mainly like a single player game until you reach the end game dungeons.

It'd be a perfectly good $25 game. It's not a good $25+$15+$15+$15+$15... game.

This pretty much sums up my opinion of every MMO. Can't justify spending $15/month to grind the same content when I could just use that to buy a new game or two via various digital download sales.

For those of you who (like me) purchased Din's Curse and/or Din's Curse: Demon War from Direct2Drive and have since lost it (somewhat) to the abomination called Gamefly, if you email steven@soldak.com asking for a Steam key in exchange for providing the keys you have for the games from Direct2Drive, now Gamefly, you'll be able to snag a Steam key for both (also, like me!). ;)


Thanks again for posting this. I got my key this afternoon.

It figures. Today my $50 gift certificate arrives from Best Buy, and BestBuy.com closes preorders for XCom. Guess I'm not preordering XCom, since that is the only way I'm affording it.

I'd love to see TSW become SP-based.
I'd love to avoid the $15 sub-fee AND the "always online" requirement.

My big problem w/ TSW from the Beta (one week before the game dropped) was the combat didn't feel that good at all;
the game has too many ARPG style quests (kill X enemies, kill X enemies in a certain fashion, find X people, go to X area, find X areas, etc);
and the zombie-infested area just didn't do much for me (probably b/c at that time, I recently finished Dead Island: Ryder White).

The storytelling, writing, dialogue, and voice-acting was fantastic - and really what you'd expect out of a SP game.

Hmmm, does bb sell gamestop gift cards? You could then turn that in to a steam wallet card. Doubt it though.

Other than that I'm sure someone could trade you for it.

They sell "kindle" cards which you can use at Amazon.

I have no problem with the idea of GFWL. It's just poorly implemented and buggy as hell. Plus some features while it makes sense on the 360 do not make sense on Windows. Having a portal that links 360 and PC cheevos and friends would be great, but it's just so poorly done I can't even seem to bother.


Ok that makes sense. I haven't run into those problems yet but I'm sure I will lol.

Was lookin at some of the Elder Scrolls games but Skyrim for $10 at TRU is going to make me go out of my way to check lol.

Oblivion for $10, cop or not?

Oblivion for $10? Nah. That's probably a good price for a physical copy, but you're better off buying the Deluxe Edition or GOTY on Steam for like half the price.

Wait until the deluxe edition is 75% off, may happen during the winter sale. It was 75% off during the summer sale.

I've been playing a lot of Faster Than Light (FTL) recently. In fact it's taken over from Guild Wars 2 as my go-to-game of choice.

It's pretty unforgiving, and 30 mins to 1 hour of work can evaporate in seconds, but I'm still finding it rewarding. I've unlocked my second and third ships which seem to be a little better than the standard one and I'm doing a little better each time. It's becoming obvious that you really can't expect every random event to go your own way and he further in I get, the more cautious I'm becoming. Still haven't found a solid balance between component upgrades and ship upgrades but I'm getting there.

Worth it if you're curious. Even if not, I'd say it's worth a punt in a sale.

P.s. Still haven't beaten it yet, even on Easy.

Things will eventually go your way and you'll manage to beat it. After my experience with easy, I will admit I still haven't tried normal and I'm a bit terrified of it.
