Week in Review: Freemium spandex


At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on the site and then present them all in one convenient place. Miss a big story last week? Curious about what's going on next door at our sister site, WoW Insider? Don't worry -- we've got you covered.

January has felt like Superhero Month here at Massively after weeks of DC Universe Online launch hype and City of Heroes interviews and promos. But this week belongs to Cryptic's Champions Online, which officially boarded the free-to-play bus on Tuesday and launched a new game update and trailer alongside its freemium overhaul. To celebrate, we rounded up everything you need to know about Champions' F2P conversion and the top reasons the lifetime subscription is still worth it. And our podcasters got their spandex on for a voice-to-voice interview with Shannon "Poz" Posniewski, Champs' Executive Producer.

Hit the break for a look at this week's other top stories!
