    PvE = Player vs Environment. PvP = Player vs Player. All are enemies. But good effort.

    Meh - this sounds interesting, but free to play has me leery in a way. It's one thing to drop money up front for a game (especially when it's like $10 in a Steam sale), but it's another when I get nickel-and-dimed to death. Hell, it'd be easy to drop well over $200 on TF2 for things that might actually be useful, let alone all the silly hats.

    Same with DLC - I got Civ V for 12.99. I'll hold off on Gods & Kings until it's less than I paid for the game itself.

    "We've heard for years now that PC gaming is dead. It isn't dead - it just went underground for a few years and is now re-emerging with this massively growing free-to-play market that has matured to the point where the quality of games we're seeing rivals many AAA retail games,"

    Ah, the ol' Goebbels theory of marketing: "If you repeat your market strategy often enough, it becomes true". This is a standard marketing tactic - when asked if you product will be a hit, simply say, "Why, it already is! How good must it be if it's not even out yet and there are buyers lining up!"

    I wouldn't describe the F2P market as "massively emerging"; rather, more like "People have made a ton of subscription MMOs, then made in them F2P in an act of final desperation before WOW grinds them into a fine paste."
