“Champions Online: Six Months Later” or “Super Powered Fiascos”

April 1, 2010 Leave a comment

I played Champions Online for a good three months last year. For those of you that actually read the blog know I was not particularly fond of mess the game had made, and the sheer lack of polish that Cryptic had the audacity to release unto the masses. I haven’t played the game in a good three months now, burnt out on lack of content, repetitious quests and in-game events that made me want to cry tears of blood.

Champions Online had a lot going for it, some of which I have even highlighted in the past, but does it have the chops to become a strong AAA title in a post-WoW arena? The fact that this question was posed by Patrick Mackey six months after the launch is enough of an indication that Cryptic made a lot of atrocious mistakes in the first six months. But perhaps there is still hope. Mackey over at Massively takes a look at the game and how it fares half a year after launch.

Worth a read

“Two Worlds 2 is Too Pretty” or “Elder Scroll Withdrawls”

In all honesty I have to say I never really cared much for Two Worlds. But these new screenshots from the second iteration of the game had my jaw drop the floor hard enough to make the annoying old lady downstairs bang on the ceiling with her broom. The game world looks, to put it mildly, absolutely stunning. That being said, as we all know, breathtaking visuals does not a great game make. Let’s just hope TopWare has put in this much time, effort and love into the gameplay and roleplay aspects of the game as well.

Enjoy the eye-candy!
