    Newest article is about the EVE Online Microtransactions controversy:

    EVE Online and the Microtransaction War | Free MMORPG Blog

    Microtransactions and cash shops are already a big part of free-to-play games and have been used in pay-to-play games to fill out their wares; but EVE Online represents a special case... :)

    Thanks! I tried my best to stay true to the source news and give an analysis of what's going on. It seemed pretty poignant to me because microtransactions are how free-to-play games sustain themselves.

    EVE Online also has an odd element that the PLEX can be bought from other players for in game currency. This means that in a weird way EVE is a player-supported free-to-play for hardcore enough players (those willing to play for ISK to buy extra time.) :wacko:

    If the server comes back up today while I'm paying attention, we should hook up. I assume that it's because it's a CBT; but I cannot log in right now. I'll probably go and check the website soon to see if it's down for maint. and not telling me.

    It's definitely a CBT, though, I can see them patching bugs with every update. They're doing a great job of plowing through the ones I notice. :wacko:

    As Diablo III Approaches Blizzard Announces it

    Looks like Diablo III will have no offline solo-campaign any longer and, in a move that will certainly shift the tectonic plates of the MMO industry, Activision Blizzard has announced the roll out of a real-world money auction house for the game.

    We certainly could add one there, but at the end it would require combining the results and it could also weirdly split the statistics. Also, we've been having trouble with polls and the blog at the moment.

    Don't worry, we're working on it. :)

    Just some CSS issues involved with the blog theme at the moment and lack of good poll plugins to choose from. There's a plan to get it resolved as we're continuing to make the blog better. :)
