A Tiger Shark's Like A Garbage Can, It'll Eat Anything.

by Rainier on Oct. 21, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

While playing the open beta of Vindictus, we came to the conclusion that the game is overpriced for a free-to-play game. Although you can play the game for free and there's no sign-up fee, purchase or subscription needed, it relies heavily on "tokens" to take the ferry to instances. Twice a week, you are given 50, with each ride costing you 2 to 5 tokens, depending on how much you play. Once those tokens run out, it starts getting really expensive, really fast.

While 50 tokens may seem like a fair amount, anybody playing a few hours per day will easily run out that very same day. One of the ways Nexon is monetizing its game is by selling platinum tokens, at 50 cents per token, so only taking 1 extra boat trip per day will cost you $15 a month. Sorry, Nexon, but that's just outrageous!
