  • City of Hero fans, talk to me...

    What about Champions Online, Marvel Omega and DC Universe Online? Why do former City of Hero players tend to pass on these games, still hoping for that decent comic mmo? Why are you looking over these games hoping Ship of Heroes or City titans can fill your void? I want to know what went wrong with the current games in your opinion? Or past game in the case of Gazillion's mmo.
    I played CO at launch. It did some things well. Combat was pretty fun and the travel powers were really awesome (Teleport and Burrowing were really neat), but I hated the setting and aesthetic. It was too campy. Not a fan of the Silver/Bronze Age of comics.

    Marvel Heroes I loved and played for years, but it was a deeply flawed game and it was mismanaged into catastrophe.  Great idea, frustrating execution.

    DCUO, I'm not a huge fan of the DC Universe, and the game just felt kind of janky. I did enjoy the open world PvP at launch, though.  Being able to encase another player in a giant ball of ice and then toss him a couple blocks down the street was pretty hilarious. I found the customization lacking as well.

    I'm not really looking forward to any of the successor titles coming out. If they're good, I'll play them, but I'm not hanging onto every development in hopes that one of them will fill the void. That's a good way to set myself up for disappointment.
