This marks the end of the 'Wolf went to vegas' not-quite-plot-line.

Will you see more of The Amazing Meat-Man? Probably not, but who knows!

Incidently, you probably noticed that Ice's hair is different. The characters were redesigned, you see, and the hair had been bugging me for a while now. Thats the whole thrilling story behind that.

I don't remember which of us came up with the Meat Man idea, but on the subject of superheroes, I've had City of Heroes for a week or so now, and I'm a level 8 guy in a suit that has the ability to BEND FIRE TO HIS WILL! It's actually pretty neat. I'm enjoying CoH thus far because of the ability to take missions that are sort of just flying around looking for a certain type of enemy to pulverize. I much prefer this to other MMOGs that are more... free for all kill everything types, and even the missions that are indoor type are fun. They seem to be well balanced enough for a single player to take them on. I can't speak for later in the game obviously, but I know FFXI shoved grouping down your throat pretty quick. Or so it felt. I'm not really a big grouping person, because I kind of like to just fuck around. Groups usually have a structure and a goal, I'm not big on either. Moving on...

The XP system has a neat way to deal with death. Most other games take xp from you in one way or another, some can even cause you to drop back a level if you lose enough XP. It's very annoying. The way CoH handles it is to give you an "XP debt" that you have to work off by giving up a percentage of your earned XP in the future until you pay off this debt. Technically this is still lost XP, but you never feel like you've just tossed the last 2 hours you spent out the window. You always have the feeling of forward progress. It's totally mental in nature, but it somehow just feels better.

In other news, if you haven't stumbled across it already, theres a game being thrown together by some guy who works for lionhead called "Rag Doll Kung Fu". It looks really... odd. But I like things that are odd. I tried to get a beta but I'm too slow I guess. In any event, go look at it, or I'll ninja your stupid ass. Seriously.
Really 1337 Comic Thing.
