well hell. I’d watched people play it. I finally broke down and bought it. I had to upgrade my computer to play it. And you know what…

It’s all been worth it. I actually got invited into a team today (aside from the Super Group that is pretty much all friends of mine and their friends), and we kicked some ass in a couple of missions they had on their queue. Now if only my next mission wasn’t deep in an area where every thug wasn’t 4 levels higher than me, I’d be rockin’!

I’ve been up too late already. Guess I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to play some more.

Well, new video card installed and I have to admit, this game is pretty badass.

If you find yourself on, at lowish level, lonely, and want to hang out; I’m on Triumph and my name is…

…The Furious Badger

I realize I’m pretty much a Wolverine knockoff, but then again, there are only so many routes you can go. You’re limited to the powers presented at character creation. My schtick is I’m a lot grouchier than Wolverine and that creates these aura’s of hate or rage around me that injure other people. Whatever. I was looking at the powers and the Dark Armor sounded cool. I may make a 1930’s pilot/Blaster next, but I want to get Badger up to at least a functional and playable level first.

Still, it’s lots of fun and seems to run very smooth on my computer, even though the only thing I’ve upgraded in the last few years is the video card I bought today.

I hate it when $50 games turn into $150 though. Oh Well.

So I did it. I succumbed to the urge and peer pressure. I bought my first MMORPG. I picked up City of Heroes this evening, but I haven’t played it yet. I figure, even if I get a month’s play out of it, it’s no different than playing a normal PC game and if I play it for longer, well, it’s better than buying two. Whatever. I was going to start tonight, but I don’t remember what server I’m supposed to get on, and my friends who play are not answering ICQ (why do people leave IMs connected if they’re not there to answer). That and it’s going to take another 15 minutes to even finish downloading the updates and I don’t know if I can make it that long just waiting.

Anyway, I guess I’ll start playing tomorrow. I’m thinking of making a scrapper named Badger or something lame like that. I dunno, I’m a bit short on ideas at the moment.
