City of Heroes Live

NCsoft announces that City of Heroes, their superhero MMORPG, is now live. Here's a bit:

Austin, TEXAS, April 28, 2004— NCsoft® Corporation (KSE: 036570.KS), the world’s leading developer and publisher of online computer games, announces the launch of North American commercial service for Cryptic Studios’ City of Heroes™, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) where players don costumes to become super-powered heroes, and fight against evil to save the world.

City of Heroes is a true departure from the MMORPG market, which is primarily filled with medieval fantasy-based titles. The game enables players to realize their comic book dreams. Heroes protect the fine citizens of Paragon City in a colorful 3-D world where the victims of crimes not only thank players for their help, but they even compliment players on their costumes!
....
City of Heroes also links with a monthly comic book, which is sent to subscribers free of charge. Rick Dakan and Blue King Studios publish the comic book of the same name. Rick Dakan is one of the original visionaries behind City of Heroes and wrote much of the game’s fictional backstory. The comic also includes fan fiction, fan art, interviews with the developers and tips on playing City of Heroes.

"ts still a good deal. Far Cry didn't last 30 days as far as gameplay. Multiplayer is still a mixed bag, as its 'been there done that' scenario."

This would be true if not for the fact that (A) your average person doesn't have several hours per day to play games, so a single player game takes a far longer time to get through than many who call themselves gamers; and (B) while it is true that the single player portion to many, if not most, games lasts for about a month, if one enjoys the game they'll likely play through again. Just like most can watch a good movie more than once, one can play a good game more than once.
