I think we spend more time reminiscing about City of Heroes/Villains, than we do berating NC Soft for…well…being assholes and shutting down the game in late November. I’m sorry if you’re tired of hearing the CoH community voice their disapproval over the game’s closure. I disagree with Ran-san (aka “Nomiru” in previous posts), I know the game wouldn’t have been around forever. Eventually everything ends. This was not the way to end it though, and NC Soft has only themselves to blame for the bad PR. However, even after all that, I’m still going to play Guild Wars 2. I figure I paid for it, there’s no subscription, and I’m pretty sure I can enjoy the game without paying into the cash shop, so why not? I’ve only managed to log about 2 hours of gameplay, but it was fun enough to make me want to return.
This episode, I also introduce Eric “Setzer” Craig, the current Head of Registration for Geek.Kon 2013 as one of our guests. He’s been playing CoH for quite a while and I hope I can have on in future episodes to discuss other MMO’s.
We wind up touching on a wide variety of topics this episode including Tabula Rasa, Korean Grinders, esports, The Secret World and other Funcom games, etc. As always, polite, constructive criticism is welcome, as this show is still very much a work in progress.
