I won't be impressed until I see better gameplay footage myself.

Really hoping this can be what Champions wasn't.

For the love of Batman, don't let me down.

The game is great. I wish I could show you guys footage from beta, but I can't due to NDA but you need to keep an eye out for captain british.

why are both sites girls? i can see the escapist being a girl, but war cry? its the manliest name ever, with a name like that im sure it was born with a beard and chest hair, its logo is even a trojan warrior, or maybe amazon, is that a boob shadow? being gay ill admit im not great at spotting boobs, but it sure seems rather manly.

atleast i hope its a boy, it would be bullied if it was a girl.

oh and the pre look/review was good too, doesn't sound like something for me, but it sounds like if i gave it to my nephew i would never see him again.

Sites are usually female, cars are usually male - because English doesn't have a neuter gender, items get given a gender by their owner. Most consoles/PCs would be female, shoes would be male...that sort of thing.

huh, personally i would never assign genders to inanimate objects, which may be why i had such a hard time learning german and french, those guys insist that my shoehorn has genitals.

but thanks for the help, that really did confuse me ^^, you are on my list.

I want a Yellow power ring for Christ's sake, so I can grief any wannabe Green Lanterns.

To paraphrase N.W.A., "Fuck tha Space Police".

A good console MMO? or a good super hero MMO?

Regardless, when this launches, I'm definitely picking it up.

Just a good MMO in general. City of Heroes still beats it, pseudopods down.

Well,

If you've pre-ordered it, you can get into the beta, as long as you do it before November 15th.

The only reason I'm interested is because of the character editor. Man...that looked so sweet in the videos that I saw.

I'd probably spend 5 hours creating 10 characters and then never touch the game again.

Disappointed to hear that the character creator is not as good as CoHs, as while its tough competition, its something a good superhero MMO definitely needs.

I really want this game to be better than CoH, as CoH is a great game, but the inclusion of DC characters could make it all the better.

on an off note, why the hell is green arrow still in a crappy robin hood outfit, surely now would be a great time to update his look,something a bit more modern (perhaps more in line with the smallville green arrow)

As long as a MMO makes progress with it's dev reports, we don't mind delays. Please though if your beta-testers don't think it's ready, listen to them it's very important.

Well, not exactly.

Traditionally, ships, countries and oceans are the only nouns the English language assigns a gender to - and they are all female. Anything else given a feminine pronoun is simply a figure of speech, and male pronouns are almost never used.

Pedant ;P

DCUO... While i am glad they were smart enough not to just launch anyway (one would hope SOE had enough of a clue about MMOs by now)I'm still not convinced that it will still be any good. The article makes little mention of the content, if it is more of the same "kill 10 super rats" that is in most MMOs then I really don't see the point beyond the DC setting which while cool and all... I already play CoH.

heres the thing, it isn't always. I can't tell you much due to NDA but its not always kill x of y or go to z, there is actual variety. Oh, and the boss battles that SOE has spent a lot of time on, which I am sure you have heard about. The battle system is different than other mmos. I cannot go into detail until SOE reveals more themselves, but the game is fun compared to the other superhero mmos (and yes I have played them both). The game is just all around good fun even for beta, especially for a game thats not coming out till January at the earliest. (also, I will be able to take ideas and post them onto the beta forums... possibly)

it beginning to sound like it plays like Vindictus! and from what i saw at the NYCC im getting more excited about this game. if you do use your mouse to string combos i am so in!

For some reason having to actively string combos together keeps me way more interested than waiting on cooldowns. I've already hit the wall in Vindictus, (no more mission after lvl31) but i keep playing... i can't explain it, the combat really is the make or break for me!

Also excited for TERA for that same reason!

Watch all 3 parts and judge for yourself. I don't believe the description here is adequate.

thats why I am here as an avid player in the beta.

As someone with nerve damage in my hands, I am dissapointed to hear the game is more twitch-based than most MMO's. Not all of us are teenage kids looking for more of a skill challenge than most MMO's provide.

I have seen gameplay of vindictus and how its freeflow combat, and there has been footage of showing the combat in dc universe as realtime combo based combat throwing in abilities as need be, and that is pretty acurate. It is very fast paced unlike other mmos.
