Re: Anthem Article

I did want to mention; The team is very much into making a quality game that will be very pleasing to former CoH players, as well as many, many others. However, making money is also an important consideration. They don't need to make so much that they count money by the barrel, but right now they n...

Re: Anthem Article

The article highlights a growing problem in the so-called 'AAA' Game development era. There are good people with vision and desire for making games ground into dust by aimless management and oppressive 'corporate' pressure of performance and profit at all costs. Bioware is an "easy" example. Dragon ...

Re: Superspeed

I feel like a LONG (horizontal) jump is very appropriate for SS. Not sold on a HIGH (vertical) jump with SS, it doesn't make sense unless it's decided to roll both powers together for convenience sake - I always felt bad for those poor saps who ONLY took SS and took forever to get anywhere, or when ...

Re: CONCEPT BUILDS

I like this idea as a 'future' addition - especially when we start getting into higher levels and have more complex choices. I'm a theorycrafter and optimizer at heart, -- MIDS, WoW's talent calculators, I love it all. I even spend hours thinking about my choices at level up for my D&D characters (y...

Re: What was something you wanted to do in CoH but never got the chance?

Before IOs - I wanted to fill out my entire enhancement manifest with Hamidon Enhancements on my main character. I had a few but never really got serious about it :lol: even though I played quite a bit. After ED and IOs came out I was a much more casual player, so I never took the time to make an OP...

Re: Please make us run around this city

The city may look great, but that doesn't mean I want to run around it for an hour or even many more on every alt I ever make. I remember the old slog to level 14 in CoH less than fondly. It was less of a slog when it was changed to level 6, but still odd and annoying. Please join the modern age of...

Re: Internal Video Footage

You are exactly right -- unscripted means more time for game development. But I was wrong on something -- we'll launch the video and a newsletter with it tomorrow (Monday) and not today. One of our key guys for the newsletters is taking a break with his son (Father/ son time is always a priority) a...

Positivity in the Community

One of the things we talk about when we remember CoH and that we look forward to for SoH is the overall positivity and sense of community in the game, especially compared to today's atmosphere in gaming. Well, /r/Games is taking today to address some of today's concerns, and I thought this might be ...

Re: What didn't you like in CoH?

What I didn't like in CoH: In a team the player with the star goes AFK and the rest of us are waiting never knowing if/when they'll be back. We're loose in a zone waiting and can't pick a new mission or pick up another player unless we all quit the team and reassemble. Do I have a better solution? ...

Re: What is "platforming"

Here is a modern example of platforming in an MMORPG https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4csYi004YYU Context - the underbelly is an OPTIONAL labyrinth of shortcuts through the Leviathan raid that allows you to skip "trash" fights and go straight to raid encounters, there are several routes to each encou...
