Have you been playing the free-to-play strategy game Magic: The Gathering - Tactics? If so, you don't have long to continue, as Sony Online Entertainment and Wizards of the Coast have decided to "sunset" the game on March 28, 2014. That's the PR spin way of saying that they're sh*tcanning it.

Players can no longer sign up for new accounts with the game, but the real kick in the pants to users is in between the lines of the following FAQ item.

What’s going to happen to my Magic: The Gathering – Tactics cards?
Magic: The Gathering – Tactics cards that players have in their existing deck inventory prior to November 18, 2013 will continue to be accessible through March 28, 2014. No new packs will be available for purchase as of November 18, 2013.

Some players who purchased cards over the course of the title's life are optimistic about being refunded. While Sony does not explicitly say what will happen to the cards after March 28, one can only assume the worst: cards purchased with real money may be deleted without any credit given to the purchaser. Free-to-play, everybody!

Review: Warframe

Warframe has just released on the Xbox One, and it's undergone some changes since it launched -- mostly good changes, meant to add more content to the game in the form of items and missions. It still fails in all of the same areas however, mostly its inability to craft an interesting world, and the free-to-play scheme that encourages far too much grinding.more
