@Haru48: Go to GB's Justin.tv page. You'll find their live stream stowed away there. On second thought, here's a link. Ignore the title of the page. They don't update it enough.

Man looking at these characters is kind of selling me on this game. Can't they just release the character creator? lol

@zoner: The texture on that lamp is goddamn awful, but your dude looks impressive. Is there like a good/evil alignment thing in the game?

From the quick look it seems you pick your alignment at the beginning and then also pick a main superhero or villain as a mentor.

No problem, it's a pretty good quick look you should give it a watch.

Someone needs to make a Green Hulk lookalike and see how long it stays before it's deleted :P

You pick your mentor, where you start and your alignment are based off that.
#18 Posted by Rhaknar (5940 posts) -

and my last, and in this case actually least, since its my least favorite, Crimson Queen

Half of he fun seems to be making characters. How does the game play? Better than Champions Online?

It didn't come off amazingly in the quick look, the reticle for the gun spent half it's time being obscured by the hero, but having not played I can't say what the other weapon types are like.

It's the first mmo I've seen get 'action' right. Basically imagine a 3d Beat Em Up, pretty basic with a couple combos. The powers help freshen it up though

I'll wait til it goes Freemeium lol.

Fair enough, I thought that might be the case.

Have fun with that
#28 Posted by raijin6363 (7 posts) -

I played a great deal of the beta.. got 2 characters past level 20. I found the combat is quite fun but  a lot of it is (was) rather unbalanced.. some classes ruthlessly kicked ass, others felt very wimpy.  Again this was about 2 months ago and I haven't played the retail version yet. Also a VERY important thing that is very strange about the character creation. you only get a VERY small selection of costume options when creating a character.. You will unlock dozens if not hundreds of other costume options when you are playing by equipping new items or using collectibles.. daily tokens to go to a "vault" will almost always net you a couple of pieces. I was particularly fond of the "BioMech" set of pieces.. with its metallic spines jutting out of my gloves, feet and shoulders in a very menacing manner.    
 
Although if your an ENDGAME player, there are rediculously overdone suits of armor based off all the main heroes and villains you can purchase with crazy amounts of PVP tokens or in game money.  I will likely play this game again, but not till i get bored of Cataclysm. Which will probably coincide with a steam sale of this game.    Also, acrobatics was the most enjoyable travel power for me.

LOTRO went freemium and their revenue tripled. Be prepared for a lot more MMOs to do the same, Champions Online is going freemium this month. Don't expect it to be the last, either.

LOTRO did it after several years of not. Champions does not have a licensing issue to worry about. I imagine when you're working with a company you do not own, certain payment models can not be changed without their consent.

Turbine does not own the Lord of the Rings and they went freemium. And it doesn't matter if they did it after several years, the fact is that their revenue triple and they're probably wondering why they didn't do it earlier. They would have gotten more revenue earlier on.

I think the reason it took LOTRO so long is simply because the freemium model was only proven to be successful recently after D&DO made the switch.  Turbine clearly didn't want to risk losing money and annoying their current subscribers, but the fact it's tripled the profits since the change ensures more games will be switching over to this format.  Champions Online is next at the end of the month and will likely do very well for itself too, it was a decently fun game, only let down by the monthly costs and with DC Universe coming out, I think a lot of people will turn to it as a much cheaper alternative.  Star Trek Online will be next to go free to play and DC Universe won't be far behind, depending on how well it does to begin with. 
 
I'd also be willing to bet that Old Republic will at least have a non subscriber option.

I'd also hazard a guess at something like this. Apparently there is some sort of microtransaction store set up for SWTOR.
#43 Posted by Phantom_Crash (298 posts) -

I will be all over TOR like a fat kid on cake when it comes out. Until then the DC character creator needs to be released as a separate download to get more people like me in to it. Champions Online did a stand-alone character creator too I think, Dragon Age Origins too.
I am some what tempted to have a go at this, pitty there is no trial for it at this point in time.

Please tell me you guys are playing with a 360 controller.  I was in the beta and it was hard to watch the guys play with a mouse and keyboard.

I stopped playing the beta on a PS3 simply because I didn't want to play an MMO with a controller. Is the mouse/keyboard even worse than that? "

You are suppose to play it as an action game and that's the way I played it.  You can play it with a mouse and keyboard if you want, but I would never, that's just my opinion. 
 
I always kept the mouse nearby when I wanted to do some quick menu navigation, or the keyboard if I wanted to type something.  Mic's work too.

Nope it is definately NOT going to have a non-subscriber option. The Old Republic is aiming really high, like WoW high. I dont know if thats good or bad but there is no chance in hell it will have a non subscriber option. Apart from trial i mean. 
 When even more modest MMO like DCUO start with a must-have subscription, i really dont know how someone would come to that conclusion.
