I have a confession.
I have never played an MMORPG. Never. Never ever. Never ever never.
Tonight at the Mister’s work (very postponed because of the Seattle Snowmageddon) holiday party, I became the proud owner of both City of Heroes and City of Villians, as well as three free months of play. I decided what the hell?
So, my Geeks, tell me, what’s fun to do in City of Heroes/Villians? The best servers, best bonuses, best powers?
I still haven’t decided which machine to load it on, the laptop or the desktop. The desktop is probably safer and less likely to get me back from lunch later during workdays. However, the laptop is most likely to get played so as to capitalize on my three months of free play.
Basically, you people have three months to convince me that this is a worthwhile use of my extremely limited free time. Go. Once I set up the account, I’ll post it here so you can hara… I mean, find and help me.
The other loot we picked up tonight included a Champions On-line t-shirt, the PS 238 rpg and1, 2, 4 and 5 of the graphic novels, we also got the Heroes System book The Mentalist, a huge book of American History, a t-shirt from a game controller company that has pictures of the different controllers and says, “Contrary to popular opinion, these do not make me a killer.” There’s some other stuff, but I forget what. Essentially the company uses the party to get rid of the schwag that accumulates during the year. We have an auction with play money, and the bidding gets really heated for some items. And very, very silly.
That’s about it. Have a good night, and I eagerly await your advice on CoH/CoV.
