If you have a few minutes to kill, there are only a few worse ways to kill them than by playing this game. Yitien is a browser-based fighting game based on a true story sort of Chinese setting, where your character is fated to be an epic hero and spends his or her time learning various skills and acquiring items and upgrades. It's a fairly generic storyline in that regard with a prettily-veneered game space. The game itself is free, but you'll quickly find that R2 Games is very much interested in your money and has placed much of the best content behind a paywall, including the top-level gear. While it may be possible to grind the virtual currency you'll need to buy that gear without spending real money, it will take enough time that World of Warcraft's vanilla version of the Winterspring Frostsaber grind looks like a summer afternoon in the park.
