It's a maybe here too, bro.

Expansion for WoW kinda came across to me as lame. They are just moving more and more to making it such a basic MMO with no permanent choices etc etc.
Not gonna rant though, just wasn't impressed basically.

While champions online isn't something i'd consider myself suited too it looks fun and action like :)

Been trying the open beta.. Hasn't really grabbed me as such, most encounters are just too basic, either win or loss.

There is some nice things on classes, you can pretty well develop any hybrid class you want, Much like a huge talent tree, high end skills for each arch type requires specialisation.

But will keep tyring to whenever this open thing finishes up.

Oh it crashes alot on Win 7 too >:( (Oh Wait I should clarify, it crashes alot for me, I even had to restart my PC at one stage cause It was instant crash on program start),runs bad when moving quick (not sure if client or server). Nothing like the nice smooth travel powers in CoH.
IF you turn the detail level down the characters actually end up looking like tradional 3D character models rather than the weird horrible mess cell shading mess they have at higher details.

I'll be giving it a go. Not sure if its just that CoX has become stale, but I find the gameplay better in Champions. Been playing around with a Might character and the knockback mechanics in Champions leave CoX for dead. Nothing says that you've got super strength quite like smashing a mob and see them go flying and land about 100 metres away.

I would have preferred more traditional graphics than the cell shading (I really don't like them) but the game has me hooked so I'll most likely be in for the long hall... Unless Global Agenda drags me away.

After seeing the game on the flatmate's PC, the travel powers looked pretty trippy. Flying disc looked pretty cool.

I'd be interested to see the ice travel power - from a screenshot it looks similar to the ice guy out of incredibles (amoungst a million other heroes as well).

If there's enough interest by people I know, I could be swayed.

Just search travel powers on youtube!

Some good ones look like teleporting, tunneling, ice travel, swinging (spiderman style lol)

Looks fun!

Actually Nucleon.. its was just a blue surfboard from what I could see :p Assume Fire and Earth was just a red and brown surfboard instead ;)

Or maybe its just cause I turned the graphics detail down *shrug*

Now the rocket jump boots would have been nice and fun, if it wasn't for the like 2fps I ended up with at each landing.

[edit] Crap I didn't know there was a room I could try em all out at behind trainers
