Ok so I have been on this character creation kick and not feeling the conection to the environment I’m playing in …. so I decided to go to the source. I strapped on my spandex and colorful underware, and went out and got myself City of Heros, City of Villians deluxe edition. I figured $29.00 was not a bad price. Plus I signed up for 14 days free trial and so I have just under 45 days of game play for a measly $29.00….
So first decision to make was to play the heros or the villians, tough choice … no not really Villian all the way … 2.5 hours later and 2 characters designed and I just finished the tutorial for each … wow what a difference a really good character generation tool can make in really personalizing your character. I almost actually care about them … well it did take 2 hours to design the characters … so time invested certainly plays a big part of being who I want to be.
Anyway since I really didnt get to play to much I cant comment on the connection between character and game environment in detail. However that being said …. I felt a connection, bigger than life characters in a world populated by other villians, and the story connection played right on to this … I would say bingo … they got it right …
Anyway as the days pass by I will update you on my progress to see wether or not the connection between character / environment and me remains as time passes bye.
