The Daily Quest - How Do You Define Pay to Win?

It's a touchy subject, but spurred on by the recent discussion regarding Skyforge's monetization model I figure now is a good a time as any. Let's do this: how do you, the player, define Pay to Win (P2W) in your games?

Does VR Have A Place In MMOs?

I spent my weekend with the wonderful community team from Kingsisle Entertainment (they work on Wizard101 and Pirate101) as they slowly walked up and down the aisles of the SXSW Gaming Expo. It is a free event (a good offset to the astronomical ticket prices that SXSW can often ask) and allows indie or smaller games to hook up with potential players. It also shows off new technologies, trends and even hosted video game museums with hands-on consoles. It was a blast, to say the least.
