Champions Online – I Feel Heroic Just Patching It
So I finally got into Champions Online late Tuesday night after plenty of issues with the patcher. Apparently some do-hickey wasn’t synced up with the flux capacitor and it was causing an overload with the positronic network. Or something like that. Honestly, I wasn’t that fussed and was happy to wait it out. Strange considering I was hyped like a nicotine addicted monkey for both Age of Conan and Warhammer Online last year. Maybe I’m developing more patience. Or maybe I’m just getting old.
I spent a good while last night having a play with Champions Online. I don’t know what all of the negativity surrounding the game is about, I actually came away with quite a strong first impression. The character creator is incredible and certainly offers a lot of choice. In fact, almost too much choice. I’ve spent longer inside the character creator than I have within the game so far
I’m absolutely not in a position to rate or review the game because I’ve barely scratched the surface of it yet but it seems quite fun. After reading a lot of articles about it when the NDA dropped, I really wondered what I was going to find. Perhaps the old adage “prepare for the worst and then every surprise will be a pleasant one” comes into effect here. I haven’t cancelled my pre-order and probably won’t. I haven’t had enough time to play it yet and doubt I will be satisfied with it by the time the open beta finishes. I need something to tide me over until Aion comes out anyway
Anyhoo, better get back to Champions Online. I’ve got another character to create!
