People take free for granted for a few reasons - first, they don't have anything invested in it. It was free, they didn't pay anything for it, so they can be as picky or critical as they please because there is no skin off their back.

Second, the "free" everyone is talking about isn't really "free." Whether it is time or gems or coins you must collect, there is a price of admission to continuing these kinds of games. For most, being charged constantly (buy 10 gems, use them, rinse, repeat) for consumable IAP is not the best way to play a game.

These free games prey on a player's impatience, hoping they will spring for some IAP in order to proceed in the game. Is it SO bad to put a price on the game instead?

I just feeling disapointed because a great game is ruined by iaps.. This game has a great potential of being my most favorite, but it is destroyed by iaps.. I really miss the days when games are all premium and there are no pay to speed or anything..

From tonight's iOS releases, Ichi and Project 83113 look pretty good. Will probably just be getting those two. Slow week overall.

I'm hoping it will make a comeback, though.

No I think it has turned out to a general game release night discussion thread. Like BTT just told what he bought etc. but yeah, otherwise dead.

Pocket Planes, Mutant Storm, Temple Run: Brave, and more are releasing tomorrow. Should be a pretty decent week.
