  1. QoTW I used to hope the new games would be f2p now i hope they are b2p and the reason is simple Developer/Publisher greediness

  2. For the question of the week: I would rather a game I’m looking forward to be free to play, than buy to play or sub based. Why? Well with a full-time job, family, and more hobbies than just gaming, I have to be choosy. It takes a lot more research about a game I’m paying for to determine whether or not it’s worth it. With a free to play game, I can simply read the description, download it and try it. If it’s not for me, I just uninstall, no regrets.
