I am a big fan of Superhero MMO’s. I played City of Heroes / City of Villains for a while. Never got a character to 50 though as the actual gameplay in that game is very very repeative. The missions basically devolve into instances of “Go here, touch this, beat this dude up” in the same maps over and over.
When I heard that there was another Superhero MMO in the works I was intrigued. Champions Online so far has lived up to what I had hoped. Total customization of my hero, a crazy array of of powers, and more classic MMO style gameplay.
The site ReRollz is running a contest right now, where they are giving away a total of 20 Beta Keys. 10 go to people with the best “Top 5 Reasons why I want to play Champions Online” list, and the other 10 are random to anyone who entered the contest. I entered but I won’t tell you as what.
If I get into the Beta expect to hear some news. Feel free to check it our for yourself.
