You fool, you go AFK over the Hollows you end up floating over a pack of Trolls who proceed to aggro and ruin your day...causing you to respawn back in Atlas Park's hospital with a bar and a half of XP Debt.
Which is why you TIME yourself! NEWB! 😉

This is great news.... but I'm not sure if I want to add THIS back onto my list of pastimes. I absolutely loved the year and a half I got to play on it before she died, but now I got 2.5 nights a week dedicated to roleplay, plus all of my other projects and my 360. Not sure if I will actually have time to jump back on the bandwagon.

Way back when I made an old youtube vid how I explained how I could play this game using my usb gamepad. I have ALWAYS preferred a controller to Mouse and Keyboard, and even after all this time I haven't changed.
What did change is the fact that my old controller has been busted since for ever. All I have is my xbox one controller - but if I use that then I have to rebind it to my xbox whenever I want to play on it. And back to re-pairing it on my compy if I want to play CoH. That's a lot of hassle.
But WAIT! I have a steam controller that I forgot about! But it shouldn't work... should it?
Well turns out after some fiddling it CAN work, and works just as my gamepad did. Now my actual muscle memory might be useful.
Now this is how I'll be playing from now on!

So I wandered away from the Homecoming servers for a bit (*Last Logged In 144 Days ago*), but yesterday I decided to poke my head in and see if it's still going.
There is now a new Archtype - The Sentinel. It's basically a codified Blapper, with Blaster Main Powersets and Scrapper Secondaries. And from the link, there's NEW content in the pipeline. From the reddit, it's apparently written by one of EVE Online's writers.
And NCSoft hasn't dropped the hammer - indeed, the Homecoming team has come out fully as part of ongoing negotiations with the company. Is...Is City of Heroes legitimately back at this point?

I sincerely hope they do not. It's not like they've done anything with the IP, during the very time frame such an IP would have been worth a fortune.
One thing that continues to strike me about City of Heroes is how well it holds up. It's very different in play style compared to the World of WarCraft and its March of Copycats, but it's still a very fluid and intuitive system. The game feels fresh, which is insane given its age. Graphically it's not even hard on the eyes, though I still smile a bit at all the boxy computer models.

As for new stuff coming, they actually revealed a new power pool that's coming soon, "Force of Will". Plus actual NEW story arcs coming soon.
So... stay tuned
