It almost takes guts to ask players to pay a monthly fee to play a game, when games like The Old Republic and, now, Defiance, have no real entry fee. So, when a game does ask players to pay that hefty entry fee, it stands out. This was what initially attracted me to Wildstar, a new MMO from Nexus. Having had the chance to invest a number of hours in it, there are a number of things about Wildstar that seem to make that monthly subscription worth the investment."
