" That is the most ridiculous profanity filter I've ever seen. Cir***stance? "

You haven't played Battlefield Heroes, then! That game is hilarious. I mean, the filter is. You can't have "but that" in a sentence, because it gets filtered out. Butt, I guess? But that's a fairly frequently occuring sequence of words! And, for some reason, I tried typing "Not as much as I'd like" in response to something in the chat, and the game returned  "Not as much as I **********". I have NO idea what it's even filtering out in that one!
 
Anyway... Online censors are absolutely ridiculous. It's just like a case of bad DRM, they only seem to bother people who are actually trying to use the chat for real... I don't get how people can tolerate it. We need a revolution!

  I agree with them. Wait! Look at my avatar for a moment! There, now continue reading: I agree with them. It's really bizarre to me that all the strange animal hybrids (that don't even look that good!) appear above all the rock skin, cyborg, mutant and whatever-type stuff. The majority of all people playing this game WILL scroll past all of them before they find something they can consider using for serious. That includes me. And, again, look at my avatar. I try not to be blatant or anything, but that's a hint right there.
 
The animal stuff didn't even look good... Champions Online has better animal stuff... I bet even that Cheetah chick wouldn't look good in this game. And she's hawt.

seeing as i have a crappy laptop that can run the only PC game i care about SC2, is the PS3 version worth buying? i take it no keyboard/mouse support?

Why is there nobody from the comicvine staff present for this Quick Look? Would have been pretty cool to have the perspective of someone who, you know, knows about comicbooks.

Yes.

No matter how good a concept is... MMOs are always boring as hell once you're finished making your character.

HOW DARE ANYONE HAVE OPINIONS THAT ARE DIFFERENT THAN YOURS! 
 
Furry shit is weird, 99% of the world agrees. Plus it looks fucking horrible in this game. It definitely should have been at the end of the options instead of the top.

" Not to dish on the guys, but i find that their lack of understanding in any game's story has to do with the fact that they don't pay attention. Haha, but entertaining none the less.  "
 
that and they skipped the opening scene which bassicly explained everything in great detail...

Bleh. It's a MMO alright, which means I could probably care less. Good quick look though.

@Sweep:  I think Ryan is well-versed in comics, he certainly holds his own in comic book discussions with the Comic Vine crew during WM Happy Hours at least.

You know, despite my point earlier, I'd say closer to 50% of the world agrees. If that. 50% of the Internet perhaps. Anyone who hasn't been around 4chan or whatever is likely to not give a crap.

What, you mean the list of skins? Sure, obviously "wolf" and "tiger" come before "barbarian", "mummy" and "cyborg", right? And obviously there are going to be more people playing as weird semi-foxes than any of those three...

I think he doesn't like that they think they made fun of animal costumes, but actually didn't. "Furry" has an entirely different meaning depending on whether you're familiar with it or not. Most people who think they are, aren't. Nothing we can do about it, unfortunately. The Internet and media's definition of "furry" is completely different than the one actual furries use. The people determine how a language is changed, what words should mean, and if people have decided that "furry" means something different now, then so be it. A lot of the furries aren't into that change, though, so they tend to feel offended. And, understandably, misunderstood.

I feel like this will be yet another free-to-play MMO with a mediocre player base cowering in WoW's shadow within 4-5 months.

Okay, after watching the Quicklook, I'm officially way less interested with playing this.   The most fun I'll ever have was this, just watching and enjoying the Giantbomb crew creating their "Mummy Situation" from the Jersey Shore.  Now, I just wish that Marvel and DC didn't disdain each other so much, maybe a combined universe online would be of interest.   Anyways, thanks Giantbomb.
 
Batm4n forever!

Anyone else getting super slow download on Whiskey stuff? I'm sitting here downloading steam games at like 2MB/s (which is the usual for me) and yet here I'm having to buffer every like 10 seconds... Normally I load up suuuuper easy and quick, it's been ages since I've had to buffer on Giantbomb. And I always do HD.

No I'm pretty sure just about everyone is against nerds wanting to fuck animals.

Are the ps3 and pc servers combined?

IMO, MMOs all have the same exacty gameplay, just different skins. Run around, find mob. Push hotkey and wait for battle to end. Repeat. I'm not raggin on people that play them I just don't like them.

I just love watching character creating in MMOs on Giant Bomb. It really is the best.

I'm disappointed. You didn't call your character "B4m4nB4m4nB4m4n". :)

@Rox360: 
 
So what definition do actual furries use?
 
The definition I've always heard is that furries find anthropomorphic animals attractive. Sometimes they might dress up like animals. Is that wrong?
 
(A dude earlier used 'anthropomorphic'  in front of 'human', or maybe it was 'people'. If he's reading, you can't do that. Anthropomorphic means "shaped like a human").

is Batman voiced by Kevin Conroy in this game?

Edited by thebigJ_A
@Shinri: 
 
Dude, "anthropomorphic" just means "shaped like a human". You can't say "anthropomorphic superheroes" if you are referring to just humanoid animal heroes. The vast majority of superheroes are anthropomorphic. Superman, Silver Surfer, Iron Man are all anthropomorphic. So are many villains. If it's got two arms, two legs, some semblance of a head, and stands upright, it's anthropomorphic
 
If you want to refer to furry heroes, you could say "anthropomorphic animal heroes". Or beast-men. Or whatever.

Shame they cut out the last bit, where they type /quit expecting it not to work and it just dumps them onto their desktop.

Those animal types were not anything like heroes I've seen; they obviously looked like furries designed them.  Also how dare you call Giant Bomb childish, they are  very serious and mature all the time.

@Sweep: Yeah, I was wondering where the Comic Vine guys were. This sort of game would be well within their wheelhouse.

Nevermind the bandwagon fans. Their first taste of comic books was that super kewl X-men Movie.

This looks awful. Maybe it gets better later, but I will not be trying this.

Posted by radioactivez0r

5 guys in the room and nobody noticed the text explaining that the skull icon means unblockable attack.  That's one of those weird lapses in attention that can make QLs a little more annoying.  I played through this whole part in the beta anyway, but it was interesting to see a different archetype.  If I had a job, I'd probably give it a few months.
