I've been on a run of trying terrible games. When I started this one I didn't think I'd make it past the first half hour.
Much to my surprise, DCUO is a pretty damn good game if you're looking for your super hero (or villain) fix. I've always been a Marvel fan and never cared for DC so they must be doing something right if I'm praising it.
The combo system is what really grabbed me. Combined with the fact that there is no dedicated DPS power sets (they can all DPS) so even healers are fun. The weapon styles seem pretty balanced judging by the fact that nobody can agree which is best. Using a XBox 360 controller for an MMORPG is an interesting change of pace.
Currently I'm a level 15 celestial / shield villain who looks like he belongs in a parade at Mardi Gras. I'm glad the game gives you the option of using whatever gear you want for looks and another for stats.
My only gripe with the game is that it really pushes you hard to do the quests. Beating up good guys alone gives very little XP (so far, maybe things get better later).
There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.
