When I first heard that Lucent Heart was a free-to-play, massively multiplayer, dating role-playing game of sorts, I admit I cringed. For one, I’m happily married to an amazing woman — one who’d waste no time in ditching me if she thought I was spending my nights frolicking online with half-naked jailbait anime avatars. For another, my admitted biases concerning free-to-play titles led me to imagine some shallow EverQuest knockoff that hungered to drain my bank account with petty microtransactions. But I swallowed my pride, booted Lucent Heart up, and reminded myself that my job requires me to play more than just Rift, World of Warcraft, and Star Wars: The Old Republic. And you know what? This game’s really not that bad.
