F2P Friday: Hearthstone Retribution

Jared has since moved on from Zombie Studios.

F2P Friday is our weekly showcase of the growing free-to-play market, from MMORPGs to first-person shooters and beyond. The stream team will feature the latest, greatest and just plain fun games that cost you nothing to play. Ever. Granted, you should throw the developer a bone if you enjoy a title, but you don’t have to.

It is TIME! To see a free-to-play game in the genre created and perfected on the PC that’s seen its console brethren steal the credit and adopt it as its own. That being a FPS. Doesn’t quite roll off the tongue. I guess I should channel harder next time.

Anyways, that game, well, it’s Blacklight Retribution from Zombie Studios, which is also on PS3 these days. I’ve put a small amount of time into the title around its initial release and I am really excited to see what’s been added, how the community stands and to get my ass handed to me on a routine basis that’ll make me want to rage quit after every agonizing death. More the former two than the latter.

The other game for today’s stream is a recent staple for F2P Friday and Instance Gratification, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Yeah, I think I am getting to a level of addiction. Oddly, it’s not the PvP that has me so engrossed. Beating Naxxramas for the third time of my life is what keeps me coming back to aggressively earn gold. I plan on doing a proper review once all of Curse of Naxxramas has been released, but so far it’s a solid start to the Solo Adventure game mode. One of which I hope to see continue.

And would kill for third run at Molten Core!
