Sorry for the butchering of a classic Shakespeare quote for my title, but it’s the best I can do first thing in the morning. But enough about the title, you’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Well, my older brother has recently started playing City Of Heroes and I’m puzzled as to whether to start playing it again not. Last time I played it I played the first month that comes free and then just stopped. I think I got to level 14 or something; maybe higher, but I got bored enough to stop playing it and go back to WoW.
But my dilema really isn’t if I should go back because of the game play and the quality of the game, because it’s still a good game; even if it has got a few issues. The whole premise of the game is interesting and the abilities such as flying mean that you can really swoop down in true superhero style to save the older lady from a gang of Hellions; which is the only enemy I seem to ever fight. But with the promise from a friend that the game picks up again at level 20, im curious to see if it does not.
Now, the real problem I have is: Do I pay for another subscription? I already have WoW on the go and don’t really fancy reimbursing CoH whilst my WoW sub is going. You only devote your time and money to one at a time and paying for another would feel like you’re cheating on your loyal prostitute (odd analagy I know). If I had known my older brother was going to fall for the charms of Madam Heroes, I wouldn’t have paid Lady WoW for another month of services. But I have this nagging feeling that I will end up paying for both because I’ll cave under the pressure to please both ladies.
Another little thing I’d like to add in this post, thanks for the comment axelsgirl. Maybe you’re right, maybe Roxas doesn’t suck, but you have to agree he’s no Sora. Maybe I hate him so much because of the first 3 hours of the game where you play as him, doing pointless shit just to get to the real game. A mini game where you have to deliver mail on a skateboard within the first 3 hours of an RPG just feels wrong.
