    awesome costumes
    but so far on pinnacle i have
    Zipzap and Justice Jones (hell the names are half the fun)
    and grunt0311 has Suprema and Moton
    this will prolly change but if someone wants to say hi

    Please post af review of the game. I was very interested in this when I first heard about it. But since then the hype has worn off. I have heard very little on the gameplay. Please give us an update as you go. Thanks.

    Character creation *is* half the fun, thats for sure. I don't know about high level content, but City of Heros is definitally more group oriented. You fight through missions which start out easy, but as you do harder and harder missions as you level, you need to start hooking up with people to help you complete them. It pretty neat when you play through missions you are also playing through a story. As you complete missions, the story also continues.

    So does the story line change for diffrent toons/classes? who does that work exactly, I've talked to Karma a couple times about the content was asking questions about loot and money making and char progression.

    Could you guys that are playing give your opinons?

    The answer is yes Oldskool. The story line changes depending on what your powers are based on. Magic, Mutant, etc... So it keeps the story changing if you create different chars. Just choose a different origin every time.

    Those screenies are most certainly impressive. They taken with your Raedon 9200, Karma?

    Do you perpetually have that glow from within?

    Hrm... positively glowing... that term normally is bandied about when mothers are pregnant. Does this mean your superhero is pregnant? ;)

    Just got it

    Wow I've never had so much fun playing a MMORPG than this game. The designers really hit gold with the VERY easy grouping system. It makes joining up very easy and for some great hunting! Plus who doesn't like to have INSANE powers making people fly across the room or make a fire sword appear in thin air... it's a blast.

    I also found out about the sidekick function. for those over lvl 10 you can get a sidekick! So if your buddy is only lvl 5 and you're at lvl 15, you can make him your sidekick and he'll fight alongside you as if he was lvl 15 himself.

    Then there's the character creation system. i spend 45 minutes on my first char... just being blown away by the choices... and you know what, not a single person I've seen has anything close to my look... and i've seen a lot of heroes running about!

    I play on the Protector server and would love to know if there are other TOGgers out there playing this great, unique game!

    Pinnicle my friend. A few of us are starting to pass level 10, but as you have noticed, its easy enough to sidekick and share the awesome experiences 8) Also, perhaps we should also come up with a "Newbie Night" where we all have dedicated chars for this and we only play them on newbie night. Mabey not yet, but definitally something to think about in the future.
