How do you want an 'all you can eat' retro service to work?

Awesomenauts is now free-to-play on Steam

With 330 hours on my account, it feels utterly strange coming back to Awesomenauts after a long hiatus. I remember Clunk being my bestie, and not much else. There's a handful of characters I don't even recognize, which is frightening in a t...
