No Pay To Play Here

I like to play video games in between the madness of the real world. I do not have the money for high end games and plus know those games are disaterious for me. I will never want to get off them to get any work done. I am really digging the site Kongregate. I signed up for them a long time ago, but never really tried them, as did not have the time to sift through all the bad games. That being said, out of a 100's to maybe thousand of games. I find only a handful are pretty cool. Nothing high end, just fun use your imagination type games. This one I am playing now "Astroflux" is pretty fun. It is a grinder game, but has some pretty neat ideas. It is not going to win any awards or anything, but the way they decided to monetize their game is pretty impressive. They seemed to have all angles covered, but probably not totally, or else I think their game would be better overall from a player standpoint. It is ether that or they are kind of lazy game developers. I mean the game has a lot of content, but can see already going to get bored of it one day. For now it is a nice break from reality and fun. It is fair all the way around the board. Sure, these free to play games are a rip off over the standard pay your 20 bucks and get the whole game or 20 bucks a month and we will continuously try to expand and make the game better. They also do things that is not what your typical greedy corporate mind set does. They give you options such as Player VS Player. We all hate game that are designed this way, like "Dark Orbit" which is more or less what AstroFlux is with missions and better upgrades. The problem is no options with Dark Orbit. Designed for the strong older players to kill the weak new players. This way they keep adding money to pay for upgrades to pay for better spaceships. Astroflux gives you an option that anytime can turn off or on the player vs player feature. So you can build up your status in the game. Keeping it fun and fair. Making you want to play more. Funny how that works. If you really want to learn about the economy, screw college, they just teach you to be greedy. Some of these diamond in the rough freelancers have crazy good ideas, and they say I hate money.

That is what is great about this, many other people there but have the option to just ignore them. All though, the stronger people end up killing a lot of the enemies that you needed to kill to get the reward and that is a bit frustrating, but good thing is not many people play the game. Almost like a solo game. Another part they need to work on because you have to wait like 2 minutes for all the enemies to respawn so you can now kill them yourself and get the reward.
