I don't see how this will be any good. You won't be able to play as Spider-Man or whatever, so you might as well just play City of Heroes. Especially if its designed to be playable on a console.

Welcome to two weeks ago, Bokishi. :p

 

 

Nah! Not even close. :shifty: Information on this was released on the US CoH forums like a month ago, by one of the Cryptic devs no less.

 

Concerns in the CoH/CoV community are mainly about whether having a significant part of Cryptic's dev team working on Marvel Online will affect further development of City of Heroes/villains. :ermm:

 

As a long time player of CoH/CoV, I am of the opinion that this MMO is good thing as it will definitely revolutionize the comic book hero/ villain MMO genre. Whether it does so to the eventual demise of City of Heroes/ Villains remains to be seen.

 

Ah well I

Darque was talking about Bok noticing Maria's return so late. Not about the game.

 

 

As for the MMO, not interested. It'll be full of clones and I'm really not that interested on the world anyway.

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

whats odd is that Cryptic still harobored animosity towards Marvel because marvel sued cryptic (and their publisher NCsoft) over the fact that in the game you could make lookalikes of characters. The lawsuit caused everyone who had a passing resebelance or similar name to a character to get "genericed" where his name was changed to Generichero#.

 

Now cryptic is doing the Marvel MMO... I hope they actually design somthing similar to an endgame this time.

I prefer DC.

If this game is half as fun as XML2, there could be some good times for us forum members. That is if Jags ever: A) returns B) buys a 360.

 

We could have our own version of the Merry Marvel Marching Society!!

Will you be able to emit raditation? No power is more fearsome than the power of ATOMS!

 

 

Even with a high-speed internet connection, I refuse to play MMO games.

 

Thanks for your contribution to this thread!

CoH/CoV was boooring and repetitive, Im not the least excited over this despite being a longtime Marvel fan.

I only found it boring if you solo. And the CoH/CoV group system made it super easy to find a team so I found it fun.

The thing with "City of.." is that it only has a single gameplay element = combat. Every quest is about combat, yet the combat is not fun even if youre whole bunch of people. You activate power 1, power 2, power 3.. wait until 1 has recharged, use it again.. etc. etc. until inane enemy #4639 is smited.

 

 

Building a base was fun, but then you had to grind for hours and hours just to be able to buy a wee tiny room.

We'll have to come up with another plan. I have no intentions of playing any of the X-Men in this game. Beta Ray Bill or bust!!

 

and Don is the MASTER of Wolverine, be warned

TBH most of the superhero games have been enormous letdowns. You learn after a while not to get your expectations set too high.

 

Although I have to admit I really loved Activisions' Spider Man movie adaptations.

I saw that. That was my default choice after seeing that Karnak was an NPC only.

I guess there's always Moon Knight... :blink:

 

 

I'd better get my xbox live account active again and switch it over to the 360.

And I've never really played a cross platform game online. Is it pretty crappy?

I don't quite know. I don't believe that the 360 version will be able to play with the regular version as there are certain characters that are only allowed on the Next Gen consoles.

 

 

I do know my team is probably going to consist of Cap, Thor, Surfer and Warbird.

That's just plain wrong. Think of the enemies!
