    City of Heroes

    Anyone playing? If you see Astro Creep or the Jade Guardian on the Protector server, that's me.

    I went to the store today and saw it on the shelf. 50 bucks plus subscription? Is that right?

    Yup that's right. I mean it costs money to run the dozen or so servers they have, plus keep the development staff around to add content through patches. That's how MMORPGs work.

    Anyway, I made it to level 10 last night, and started a supergroup called the Scumbuckets, aimed at darker, more gritty characters. I can also get a sidekick now too.

    This game is sooooooo frickin aweome. And i usually don't like MMORPGs that well.

    I have heard many good things about this game. A few questions for you SuperHeros out there,

    How is the game play?
    Do you think it will get boring quickly?
    How is GM response and/or customer service?

    And most important. Are there any scantly clad heroines in the game yet?

    Game play is very fast, super action oriented. Pretty much why its almost more of an MMO Action game then RPG. Boredom, well, so many things you can do, plot lines, different characters and archtypes, role playing, don't know, it will take time to tell, not to forget the fact that they will be continually adding content.

    GM response, never bothered any where else so no clue

    Scantily clad chicks? I use the regular internet for that.

    That was OK too, for GIRLS!


    We actually had our own "extra rules" to account for a lot of the real-life situations unaccounted for in the rules. Our GM was quite anal-retentive.

    I once had this whole group of armor-clad do-gooders (New Camelot - think Iron Man and you're almost there) I had spent weeks designing, drawing and making up background history for all their cool techno gadgets.

    First campaign the GM plans for them, they get 'ported to another dimension minus all technological tools. Naked.

    Scumbag.

    If it wasn't for the pay to play scheme I would have it right now. I've been itching to pull out Skyranger one more time (my first RPG character, made in the old Marvel Super Heros system as a blatant Iron Man clone ).

    I've always liked the tabletop and dice superhero RPGs (Marvel, Champions, DC, Mutants and Masterminds). The PC game Freedom Force was close, but didn't 'hook' me. City of Heroes looks very impressive. Perhaps this will be the game for me to cut my teeth on MMOGs.
    Here comes the revolution; time for the retribution.

    That's exactly how I feel. Right down to the Freedom Force comment.

    Pricey though...

    You're a big Iron Man fan too?
