F2P Cast: Black Gold has a Black Heart (EP 81)

In this week's episode of Free-to-Play Podcast we dive into a new CCG from Blizzard entitled Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. We then take a look at Forge, an indie game that's going free-to-play. We discuss the ridiculous monetization system Snail Games has planned for their new steampunk themed MMO Black Gold. Oh! There's also a Starcraft MMO on the horizon and it's not made by Blizzard, how can this be? All of this plus your community comments on this week's episode of the Free-to-Play Cast!

3D Representations of every card you play in a online TCG make a great online TCG.
Yeah I ripped this off of Yugioh but I loved the idea of knowing the card wasn't just a card.
But after seeing Hearthstone I can live without it because I remember a lot of the Npcs and abilities from World of Warcraft so I have what/who they are painted inside my head.

Great show F2P Cast.
As for the Question of the Week. I grew up with trading card games such as Magic, Pokemon, and most prominently Yu-Gi-Oh! One of the biggest disappointments as a kid who collected the cards was that they were just cards, nothing special, nothing mind blowing fun about it. The joy at least in my opinion was the collecting of the cards, which i hope they try to incorporate into online card games. Also as with Yu-Gi-Oh I'm hoping to see some monsters beat the crap out of and kill each other after they come out of a card.

Wow bad timing I guess. you put this show up bashing the Black Gold payment model and 2 days ago the North American model was released and while it it may seem convoluted it isn't anywhere NEAR what you made it out to be "pay to win" wise and is treated as bonus loot, not paying for deserved/earned loot.

I hope people looking at Black Gold in the west do their own research because this show would horribly misinform you. The models being used in east and west are in fact different.
