City of Heroes is Going Dark Nov 30th.
« on: September 01, 2012, 12:56:29 PM »
The development team was let go Friday. The game itself will end in November never to see the light of day again.
 My favorite toon was Black Falcon. She's a Brute: Dark Melee/Electric Armor. A real blast to run.
I rebuilt her several times, and she was always the most fun to play.


This means there will be NO superhero MMOs to play out there. Wah. Fantasy is overdone.
The sheer variety of powers, and the endless array of costumes will not be repeated ever. Millions played and no two looked alike. Sad to see it go.

I tried to play CoH. After playing Champions the CoH character creation process left me numb.

Even something as basic as naming your character was a nut-roll with CoH.
According to the Bible, "know" means "yes."

Tried it back in the day. Bored-to-tears.
“The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”
