Marvel Heroes MMO

No, this isn't the place to talk about low riding jeans or butt cream. In the Coin Slot, it's all about video games - PC, console, handheld, and online.

Marvel Heroes MMO

Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:17 pm

Just snagged a Beta key for this during a livestream with the head dev. It looks like alot of fun. Servers open tomorrow for 2 hours so I will post my thoughts on it.
Anyone else looking forward to it?

No. I find the laughable attempts by most dev houses trying to do MMO's these days to be shite.

There are companies that are truly into the MMO design scheme for the long haul that get it - Goblinworks, CCP and SONY - they're trying to create virtual worlds. Not just casual amusement parks with a grind hidden as "fun".

The Marvel MMO doesn't appear to be any different than the routine MMO formula that exists for the fast buck imo.

I thought I might try it IF I can play as Werewolf by Night or Ghost Rider. But after seeing the prices of the DLC? 84 damn dollars?! HA!

I'm considering checking it out, though the fact that I either have pay through the ass to play as Wolverine or Deadpool from the beginning or start as someone I don't care about and play for an indeterminate time and hope I have one of those drop for me is kind of obnoxious.

That's not it at all. This game, like pretty much every online game these days, requires whats called "micro-transactions". If you want DP or Wolverine, buy some in-game gold and get them. The game itself is free, so they need to make money somehow. The starter characters are actually good, and you can always get new characters dropped from bosses.

Really nice successor to Ultimate Alliance. But kind of boring unless you have people to play with to be honest.

Surprised there's not more buzz for this game. A diablo-II style marvel game where the drops are other playable characters? Sounds perfect to me.

Plus, Bendis wrote the storyline!

I'll try it like I said, when I can play as one of Marvels Horror themed characters like Blade, Werewolf by Night, Ghost Rider, and their various other horror anti-hero types. I've gotten enough of everyone else in other games. Give me someone "new" to play.

Anybody actually play this?

The game has gotten better it seems with the changes they made.

9 starter heroes are available in the game now and lots of positive things (splinters to get heroes) have been added to it.

I opened an account over the summer and picked Daredevil but never actually played it until last week. I wasn't expecting much but I'm super into it now. I haven't made it too far in, but even playing solo its been super fun. Can't wait to eventually unlock Wolvie.

Haha, me too. The free Thor offer enticed me to try it and as a result I've leveled Hawkeye to 55.

Also got Deadpool, Loki, and DD through random hero splinter boxes. Gonna go with DP soon...

My screenamefor the game is SpyZX for those who want to invite me.

Let me know when they release a Halloween themed pack with characters like Dracula, Frankenstien's monster, the living mummy, werewolf by night, and their other 70's horror themed characters.

I missed out on getting Werewolf by night on their other mmo, so I might snag him here if and when he comes out.
