City of Heroes: Eight Years Strong
Last Saturday marked the eighth anniversary of the launch of City of Heroes. In The Successful Journey Continues, Brian "Crosscheck" Clayton recounts those years and gives some astonishing statistics. In a separate anniversary address, Matt "Positron" Miller gives his perspective on the creation and launch of the game; and tantalising glimpses into what the future may bring.
Readers may also like to look back at the very first announcement of the game; promising "Comic-Book Style Adventure Filled with Superheroes and Fearsome Villains" (they delivered!). Or We're Open for Villain Butt-Kicking, posted the day after launch.
Meanwhile, in Fallen Thunder, readers gain an insight into the mind of one of the game's most elusive enemies. Someone who promises to be making a very real appearance in person within the game world - soon.
