These days, the free-to-play phenomenon has completely changed our expectations. The full-priced games that once topped the charts are getting some real competition from titles that offer large swaths of the experience with zero upfront cost.Free-to-play PC games are releasing at a rapid pace, and with that comes both pros and cons. The huge variety means that there’s something to scratch nearly any itch, but the signal-to-noise ratio on storefronts like Steam is tragic. Instead of trudging through dozens of generic clones and trashy cash-grabs, let us separate the wheat from the chaff for you. In today’s post, we’re highligh

Terms of use.With so much money being generated by titles like Candy Crush Saga and Clash Royale on phones and tablets, it’s entirely reasonable that the game industry is taking the free-to-play model very seriously these days on every platform. We’ve done our share of groaning about the nickel-and-diming tactics found on the App Store and Google Play, but there’s still much to enjoy about the free-to-play model when it’s done well.Dota 2 and League of Legends on the PC are some of the most popular games in existence – both of which are free-to-play titles. Frankly, it’s beyond silly to write off the model entirely when there’s so much critical and commercial success. Clearly, this is more than just a passing fad, and co

Nvidia adds hardware verification to stop reselling of free game codes

Gaming
Graphics card makers often toss in a free game with the purchase of a new card. This used to take the form of a physical disc in the box, but these days it’s a code for online redemption. Until now, you could use those codes on any piece of hardware. Nvidia has started to use a redemption system that is tied to the piece of hardware that included the game, effectively stopping consumers from reselling those codes. The standard way of handling free promo games involves going to the Nvidia website, entering the necessary info from your new video card, and then waiting for the code to be spit out. These codes for Steam, Origin, or some other service are free and clear — completely unrelated to the video card that was purchased. That led many people to re-sell the codes in order to recoup s

Microsoft reverses course on OneDrive, restores 15GB free tier

Technology
Share This article Last month, Microsoft announced a number of unpopular changes to its cloud storage service, OneDrive: The unlimited storage plan offered to Office 365 Home, Personal, and University customers was reduced to 1TB; the 100GB and 200GB plans were eliminated, to be replaced by a 50GB plan; the free storage plan was slashed from 15GB down to 5GB; and the company declared it would no longer offer a 15GB bonus to customers who synched their camera rolls with OneDrive servers. Customers were anything but happy about these changes, and Microsoft appears to have gotten the message, at least in part. A Microsoft spokesperson has apologized for the way the previous change was communicated, stating: “We realize the announcement came across as blaming customers for using our produ

Considering how much money is being generated by games like Clash of Clans and Game of War, it’s no surprise that free-to-play games are starting to proliferate on consoles. While we’ve all done our fair share of groaning about the nickel-and-diming that’s so common on the App Store and Google Play, there’s a lot to like about the free-to-play model when handled properly. The PC has F2P games like Dota 2 and League of Legends, and they’re some of the most popular games in existence. Clearly, this is more than just a passing fad, and console devs are dying to get in on some of that sweet F2P cashflow. So let’s jump in, and explore what the free-to-play model has to offer the average Xbox One owner. Smite Multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs) are incredibly popular these days, but most
