In City of Heroes, nothing will make you feel awesome faster than rolling up a new character and laying the smackdown on some miscreants with your newfound powers. And nothing will shatter that illusion of heroism faster than having a conversation with one of your fellow players. Their abilities give them fierce mastery over their enemies, but for all their swords and energy blasts, by far their most beleaguered foe is the English language. Our common tongue is helpless against their onslaught of acronyms, typos, and txtspeak.

Still, I enjoy the game. If you play and your LFT then PST and ill show u my uber toon 4 radio mishes
