City of Heroes/Villains  
I've been playing City of Heroes/Villains for a few weeks now, and it appears both that I enjoy the game very much, and that my wonderful wife is okay with me doing so at about my current rate. Yay!

I've played as several different archetypes on several different servers, and pretty well convinced myself that I should play on one of the more populous servers (Freedom or Virtue, looks like) since I play at lower-traffic times of day, and I have set to see any server look genuinely overcrowded.

If anybody actually plays regularly, and their play-times might reasonably intersect mine (Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings, mostly), let me know what server you're on. I have a couple of characters I wouldn't mind keeping, but nothing so compelling that I couldn't restart. I've mostly been trying out different archetypes and figuring out what I enjoy, but haven't put very many hours on any character but one. And he's a hero on Pinnacle, so I may not put too many hours on him anyway...

It'd be nice to find a SuperGroup (the CoX equivalent of a Guild) with people I know and like. I haven't done much of that in online games. Failing that, it'd be nice to adopt or start one.

So if you've got an argument about what server I should play on, especially an argument of the form "I play with a group I like on the <Hero/Villain> side on this server so you should join us", this is the time and place :-) Let me know!

Hrmm.. Chesh & I were playing regularly, but that has fallen off (though we could maybe get back into it).

We played on Freedom, Heroes side. We had our own little mini-SuperGroup and proxy membership to an older one with almost no active population (but a kick as base).

That however is a very meh push as we haven't played in about a month.

It's a Superhero/villain MMO. Like WoW, but different.

It is indeed PC-only, though apparently they've got a Mac port announced (but not done). Sadly, I don't know how soon.

Incidentally (and you may appreciate this)... It's a $30 game retail, but if you download the free trial and then register it online, it's only $20.

You want the "Good and Evil Edition", which I think is the only one around any more.

Skype can be found at skype.com, and it's free to talk to other Skype users, just costs money if you place a call to a land line.

Or we can use Ventrilo or TeamSpeak, if you prefer.

Skype now seems to support MacOS X, so you can use it from either side.

And just 'cause... Here is a link to the press release on Mac compatibility coming up, but it sounds like it will only be in Beta this year, and even that not quite yet.

All my villains are on Virtue and I've a couple of lowbie heroes there as well. I regularly play Monday nights, but could certainly find myself online Thursday evenings and/or Saturday mornings for teamage :)

I've got a VG on VIrtue and a (currently very tiny) SG if you are looking for companionship as well as a host of global friends to introduce you to - most of whom are friendly, good players, experienced, and on a lot as well as generally willing to team at the drop of a hat.

If you'll be on tomorrow morning, let me know and I can make come meet you and we can run around. (Might even be able to convince Peter to join us if'n he's not already plan endowed.)
Noahangelbob on November 14th, 2008 05:54 pm (UTC)
Sounds good. I've got a Rad/Rad corrupter on Virtue that I haven't trotted out in a bit and I should blow the dust off him :-)

My global chat handle is "@angelbob".

Sounds good - I'm @TifiKat and peter is @Shiden no Tachi. I've got... um... LOTS of alts that can get trotted out, and thanks to Lackeying/malefactoring level differences aren't a problem in the slightest.

See you tomorrow morning then? :)
Noahangelbob on November 14th, 2008 06:06 pm (UTC)
Yup! I generally play from around 7:30 to 12:30.

I suck :-( I just realized that I had forgotten the freak breeders zoo trip that my wife organized, which means I will *not* be playing tomorrow morning. Maybe Sunday morning, maybe no -- not sure yet.

I'm sorry :-(

Fret not - I hear that there's this thing that happens outside of games called "Real Life". If you make it on Sunday, great, if not, I'll keep an eye out for you Thursday, or feel free to give a call and let us know if you're on and we can hop on.

(If you need my home and/or cell number drop me an email at quixoticcat at gmail dot com and lemme know.)

Let's go for Hero-side on Pinnacle for tomorrow morning. After you've seen both CoH and CoV you can decide which you're more interested in. I like 'em both, and have (fairly low-level) characters on both sides. Heroes are on Pinnacle, Villains are on Virtue.

Sadly, I have our school open house Saturday morning, so I will be unable to play at that time.
