So every now and then i get bit by a radioactive bug that makes me want to don tights and go out and fight crime online. This is one of those times. I have played Champions a bit on and off (however I dont have it installed on my new laptop) Anyway I was debating installing it again or trying out DCUO... since i have SOE all access account anyway. IP wise I have always been a DC fan even more so than Marvel.
Anyway I downloaded DC and logged in and couldnt believe how limited the character creation was in comparison. The intro was fun but really no better than what CO had when i first started it. IT was neat to battle side by side with Superman as well. However I couldnt help to feel kinda let down by the lack of options..Also wanting to make a superslugger I thought it was dumb how I had to take ice/storm or energy type powers I didnt want.
Anyway this is to people who have played both.
Why play DCU or Champions over the other? Playstyle which is more fun? They both look (graphically) and play very similiar at least to me. DC looks to have alot of people at least in the starting area. and PVP is definately going strong I got ganked about 10 minutes after walking out of the safe area. However PVP even though instanced In Champions was still fun. And the amounts of character customization was amazing also also Champions has tons of more unique and interesting travelling powers.
So,Which of these 2 games is actually better. Ohh and not interested in CoHV.. I have played that one so much in the past not interested in it anymore.
