Eh...

The sound at the beginning of the Atari animation sounded like the start of the Bombcast theme.

Never was a big PVP fan even when I did play MMOs.

Eh, this trailer isnt too hot, but the game itself sounds great. It's basically City of Heroes but refined even more. You customize everything about your character including your super villain.

@DannyJ:  Yeah, I can't see any huge advance over CoH. I'd love to try out the beta to see.

You said it.

At least they're adding it in from the start. I think COX did it wrong. As one guy said, "If you don't include PVP from the start, then there is no point in putting it in later."

Having said that, I think if people REALLY wanted PVP done right, what they would do is turn it into a minigame that mimics something like Fight Night or that other fighting game (MMA?), where you use reflexes & strategy in a different context from how combat is performed in the main game. You would definitely have more people spending time in PVP at that point.

Just grafting on the existing MMO controls into PVP doesn't really work out to be very interesting. Just to increase stat points isn't enough.  PVP needs to be different from the main game with its own addiction processes in place to make people come back to play it for different reasons than the MMO.
