To be fair, it's a pretty cool concept for an MMORPG.

so i guess this is basically city of hero's all over again right?

a upgraded COH i would guess

Looks a lot like CoH, yes. But the fact that it's an MMO and that you have to share the world with thousands of other super heroes just makes it kind of lame, no? I mean...what's cool about being a super hero if 100% of the other population is composed of superheroes as well? The concept kind of stumbles upon itself :\

This was the Marvel MMO(for the most part) MS was backing not to long ago, but eventually dropped it.

Anyway, looking forward to the PC version.

Except this time it's on 360 as well. It also looks a bit better, at least environments seem way more interesting.

Agree 100%, was going to say that myself. tbh only mmorpg where you can really set yourself apart from rest of the playerbase if EVE Online. I've played countless of mmo's but EVE is the only one that has few players who are regocnized by entire community, while on the other hand I don't know any famous wow player (other than Leeroy).

No not really.

Looks good to me.

Being sucessful "famous" has nothing to do with individuality, and that is what MMO's are about, not being the best but being someone in an online world, making your own story, and making friends etc.

How can you say there are no famous WoW players outside of Leeroy Jenkins? Athene would be FURIOUS.

Now we know why marvel online was cancelled

Cool thing about about this game is that it no longer has turn-based action. =P

Everyone better watch out!

But seriously, there are some nice terrains in that vid, especially the snowy landscapes. Something about CoH never appealed to me though, but it will be interesting to see the mechanics of this game.

OK. I am pretty excited about this game, but cel shading just needs to die. I mean how stupid do those trees and rocks look with lines around them?
