A Mild-Mannered Reporter: The story of City of Heroes that wasn't

I started playing City of Heroes for one reason and one reason alone: I love superheroes. Yes, the game entranced me afterward, and there were a lot of things to like aside from the superhero aspect, but I came first and foremost expecting a game of superheroes. And while I've occasionally taken...

Ten things to do in City of Heroes before it's gone

A year ago to the day, I grudgingly, sorrowfully published Ten things to do in Star Wars Galaxies before it's gone. SWG was my favorite MMO of all time, and I was devastated to see it canned for licensing reasons, but I wanted to do it justice, and hey, at least I had my second-favorite MMO to...

The Daily Grind: What's the most iconic MMO city?

If you've ever tried to draw a map of the Earth from memory, you know that it's a difficult task, and yet I suspect that most of us could easily sketch out a map of the landmasses and cities of our favorite MMOs.

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: PAXflop

It's been anything but a quiet weekend in my neck of the woods. I'm currently writing this with no real ETA on when I'm going to have power back, which is a bit of an issue considering that my job sort of requires a functional internet connection and a computer to type and play things on. Also,...

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: Spotlight on the Trolls

The low-level gangs that heroes face in City of Heroes follow a pretty set pattern.

One step...

The Perfect Ten: MMO cataclysms

Today sees the launch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, which represents a destructive "reboot" button on the world of Azeroth. The old has been made new by virtue of fiery explosions that have rent the very earth in twain, and WoW gamers will have to find their footing all over again. As you...

One Shots: Supernatural spam

How precisely does a hero face off against a ghost in the machine? Well, if you're lucky, you'll never have to face one in Paragon City, but once in a great while, one still slips through. Take, for example, this oddball "haunting" that recently occurred on a fairly innocent corner in City of...

City of Heroes previews the districts of Going Rogue

If there's been a complaint about the visuals for the upcoming City of Heroes expansion, it's that Going Rogue will be sticking characters in yet another cityscape. On the most technical level, that's true. However, compared to the utilitarian New England city areas in Paragon City and the urban...

City of Heroes Going Rogue soundtrack available on iTunes and Amazon

There's just a little more than a month left until City of Heroes players get to take the new expansion for a spin, and Going Rogue's promotions have been stepped up accordingly. Oddly, while the art direction, storytelling, and mechanical aspects of the expansion have all gotten significant...
