COH and CO… July 10, 2009

Posted by raidenn in CHAMPIONS ONLINE.

I’ve played City of Heroes before when it began and kind of gave up after a year. The reason? It was getting monotonous. The common recurring theme is :
1. Get quest
2. Find quest location
3. Beat up everything in your path to fulfill the quest.
4. Go back to quest giver and get rewarded.
5. That’s it, you can group up if you want by waiting in front of the building since most of them occur in their own scenario. There can be multiple scenarios in one location.

See how dull that was? Where’s the honor? Where’s the angst? Oh its in front of City Hall where there’s a costume contest being held. Sheesh.

City of Villians was just the same too. They did add group hideouts which don’t really have much of a function except a quick dimensional entrance and exit to places you need to go. No secret identities, no new gear or anything. Well there was a super hero disco lounge…

Champions Online looks very clean and the graphics are much better. Costuming is mostly half the game even in COH\V. Let’s hope there’s something more in Champions Online besides beating up bad guys.

I agree with the above, fly to this warehouse and batter 40 henchmen then return to questgiver… next quest is to batter 50. Needless to say I didnt spend long playing CoH, altho i am downloading the free trial atm to keep me occupied before champions release.

I hear public quests are incorporated in CO so its looking good for me, I was hoping it wasnt going to have as many ‘instanced areas’ but meh will have to wait and see.

Interesting, public quests like what Warhammer does?

@ Raidenn yes exactly like Warhammer. Im only working off what I hear from people in beta however there is definately one in the starter area which I would expect will branch out into the other zones.

The only thing I fear there is what else can you do besides roam around and kill things. We dont really have a secret identity and no crafting mentioned yet. Unless I missed reading that part of course 😀

Hmm i guess Im just going to wait and see, I’ll be making full use of the open beta that i can put money on
