Idle Champions: "Scrooge McDuckin'"
Posted: Friday November 16th, 2018 by Woody

The Boy plays a LOT of Fortnite. And, he's become obsessed with acquiring new skins. Every dollar that comes into his possession goes into this pursuit. And where I've tried talking to him to make sure he understanding that he's dropping real world money on things that don't exist, I have absolutely NO ROOM TO TALK.

See, I've been playing Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms and I love it. I can accomplish things in the game even when I'm not at my computer. It's the ultimate casual gamer distraction. And, like Fortnite, it's free. Well kind of...

Nothing in the world is ever truly free. Most people are willing to give up certain privacy rights and dole out their personal information for the sake of FREE. For me, if a "free" game is entertaining enough, I determine how much it's worth to me, and I'll spend that amount of cash on the game and no more. Idle Champions isn't like that. Somewhere along the lines the value of the game stripped away my assessment and I exist in the odd realm of "is this money worth the enjoyment I'll get out of it going forward". Most of the time the answer is yes. I pay it, collect my goods, open my chests, and move on.

Now, to say that I've given Codename Entertainment enough money for their CEO to Scrooge McDuck into the cash I've given them is a bit of a stretch. But, what I will say is that (thus far) it's been worth every cent.
