Figured I'd ask who had the full game since launch. I know aside from myself Pathi-buns has it. Who else?

I'm still debating whether to pick it up. It strikes me as highly derivative of City of Heroes, with a lot of similar animations and powers. There's no equivalent to the Blaster/Tanker/Scrapper/Defender/Controller classes, but the opponents, the environments, the general tone... Particularly with City of Heroes reaching the point that they're incorporating more and more of the things people have asked for over years, it feels like I'd be paying twice as much each month for the same game. And I have to admit I'm not really fond of the cel animation style artwork.

1.) You can turn off the cell stuff
2.) It was made by the COX guys, so it's basically COX done right, so, that's just how it's gonna be XD

I initially had a worry about the game given Jack Emmeret's style of design, but it seems he's learned humility and some lessons from his time with PlayNC and has applied them rather well here. A few bugs to squash, and some balance and content issues are very evident, especially in PVP but much like his previous game, I'm sure they'll be ironed out. Remember COH wasn't exactly crisp starting out. My one question though is why use a little know RPG world like Champions, rather than something original like COH(which ironically its flagship character Statesman, was a creation for a champions table top game via Jack). I look forward to seeing what they do with it here in the future.

Also......tails move....they don't look like something off the K-Mart Halloween rack *stares and giggles*

I've been thinking about taking a break from EvE and picking this up (use to play CoH 3 years ago), but... I don't know. I'm not really too large of a comic fan, and the time I have spent playing EvE has left me expecting a cold, unforgiving, environment and playerbase in an MMO, something the exact opposite that CoX had.

If it was 30 or so, plus monthly fees, I'd probably pick it up. But at 50, I'll probably wait...

**Edit 9/23/09** Apparently, the day after I make this post, Amazon makes CO it's deal of the day, at a 30.00 price point...

Or you secretly work for Amazon =P.

And yes, I did place an order for it while it was onsale. Now I just need to think up some global name... Maybe Lynx or Centauri, though I have about a week to think on a good name.
