Happy Friday folks! The gang is back together this week for another round of drinks, conversation, and naked rock-paper-scissors. This week the subject is free-to-play games, a trend that's unavoidable for almost any gamer these days. Is free-to-play a viable model? Does it make sense? Does it lend itself to simply paying to win? Let us know what YOU think in the comments!
