Thanks Massively! Very good job reporting on the character creation options for Champions! I really like the visual style of this game. I cant wait to see if it really looks that good in 3D or if it just takes amazing screenshots.

I can confirm that it holds up very well in-game.

I still can't decide if I prefer it with outlining on or off, but either way the game has wonderful visuals.

Great write up. Looking forward to the content review more then anything, but I'm thourghly impressed where Cryptic took the character creator.

How do the animations hold up? I loved CoH but the major bug bear with it was the rather stilted animations, they ran like they had sticks for legs & they didn't feel very fluid or smooth at all.

Looking very good so far, but for me the quality of the animation will be a factor in deciding to sub to this or not.

I've seen all the movies for the game and what I saw at this point impressed me quite a lot. I also find animation a very important factor in any game (one of the things that kinda bummed me on WAR) but it looks like they did a very nice job.

I'm honestly starting to question if this game will be playable for me. I found CoH/CoV to have by far too much character customization to make me able to even play the game and this seems to have EVEN more. I'll probably just end up spending the entire team making and deleting (if necessary) characters... Either way I'm really looking forward to this game now! And kind of hoping it won't get released when I have something that needs to be done considering the slim chances of that being done...

I might have to postpone my wedding to buy this game and get some good playtime in.

Just kidding.

But seriously. I might.

This looks amazing. I got to play the alpha build last year and really enjoyed. Thank you for the coverage Massively!

Currently participating in beta, so hope it doesn't strain the NDA too much to say that it's lookin' good. I'll definitely be playing at release.

It will be fun to see what characters everyone comes up with. I wish I was in the beta... signed up and have been following Cryptic since before it was Champions. But I guess sometimes invites are just random.

Thanks for the thorough write-up, especially the stats and power pools - bookmarked in preparation of much character dreaming...

I don't think I saw if capes and/or wings are in. Are they?

Yes, you can have both right from the get-go. Wings animate properly when you fly and there are a huge amount of them.

Just to be clear, the NDA lift was for press who played this last weekend.

In case you were wondering. :)
