This is bad.
Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
OK, so maybe not that bad, but the last thing I need is this kind of time-sucking temptation.
I’ve messed around with online role-playing games since back in the dial-up BBS days (“In my day, we had 1200 baud, and we liked it! We loved it!”). And I’ve looked at a few of the MMORPG’s, but I’ve never been too excited about the standard medieval fantasy type games. I’ve been waiting for a really good classic Star Trek RPG or a superhero one. Freedom Force is a great superhero game, but the next step is to interact with live humans immersed in a virtual reality.
City of Heroes comes out of beta and goes live next Wednesday. And it looks awesome.
There is an excellent review of the game at WorthPlaying. However, the thing that got my attention was the series of posts Sherri has made. She’s talking about withdrawal symptoms because they’ve turned off the beta for 2 days prior to the launch!
