The Light and Dark Side of Free to Play Gaming

GamingLives explores the world of free-to-play games, digging into what works and what doesn't.

"In this new lease of life for APB, GamersFirst have decided to make some weapons “premium” only, meaning that you pay real cash to use them. That would be completely fine if they were just cosmetic, or you could eventually get them for yourself through playtime, but you can’t, they’re cash only. Most of these are rentals as well, while some you can buy permanently, but they also happen to be, hands down, the best weapons in the game." (APB: Reloaded, Culture, Planetside 2, Star Wars:The Old Republic, Super Monday Night Combat)
