A Mild-Mannered Reporter: A critical year

It's been a little over two years now that I've been writing a regular column on City of Heroes, and in one sense that still feels very strange to me.

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: Issue 22 is all juiced out

On Christmas, Ms. Lady and I received a power juicer. This wasn't a bad present by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a present that left us momentarily baffled. We hadn't asked for a power juicer, we didn't feel a great need for a power juicer, and we weren't even sure exactly what to...

City of Heroes rolls out the Media Blitz

It's time to take the war against Praetoria to the airwaves, time to find out who is really at risk of death, and time to hoist a railroad crossing sign as a weapon. All of these things are true for the latest patch to City of Heroes -- Issue 21's special update Media Blitz hitting the servers to...

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: The Incarnate divide

The other week, our regular feature Global Chat featured an interesting comment by Blackcat7k regarding the City of Heroes Incarnate system. I'm not going to duplicate the entire comment here, but I'd encourage you to go read it so that we're all on the same page. In case you're in too much of a ...

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: Spotlight on the Snakes

For the first several villain group spotlights, I haven't been focusing on problems that are unique to the Rogue Isles.
