Champions Online is turning the big one-oh and has decided to mark the special occasion with a costume contest hosted by none other than Top Ten. (Seems appropriate.) As one might expect, the theme of the costume contest is “Ten” — for the ten years the game has been around, although just celebrating the number 10 is also apparently acceptable. The event will take place this Thursday, September 18 at 4 PM Pacific and will be live streamed with the game’s developers serving as judges. The devs will choose three winners and ten runners up. The top three will be given a Gold Costume Voucher A, a purple Foil Costume Box Voucher, a Contest Special Item Voucher, and 2 Dev Tokens. Runners-up will be given a Purple Costume Voucher A, Purple Foil Costume Box Voucher, and one developer token. Those wanting to participate will need to go to the Powerhouse Theater in-game. Even if you don’t participate in the contest itself, it’s worth going as all attendees … [Read more...] about Champions Online Celebrates 10 Years With A Costume Contest

What is an MMO? A miserable pile of microtransactions. Today I’d like to talk about Champions of Titan, or my preferred title; Schrödinger’s MMO. You may recognize Champions of Titan by its previous namesake Wild Buster. Wild Buster along with Guardians of Ember and a few other titles were removed from the Steam store where it was hosted under publisher Insel Games after it came to light that the CEO was manipulating reviews in order to gin up more sales. Insel Games has since gone on to exist in a mostly vegetative state, while its published games were either shut down or spun off to new companies. Case in point being today’s topic. Wild Buster was spun off to IDC Games whose name does not, as it turns out, stand for “I Don’t Care.” It might, since a quick browse through the forums of many games that IDC publishes comes up with two major topics: The server performance is terrible and customer support is virtually nonexistent, and more than one … [Read more...] about [Column] Champions of Titan, or, Schrödinger’s MMO
A Golden Age character from Marvel Comics officially enters The Contest: the Alien Crime Fighter, The Vision (Aarkus)! When you think The Vision, typically you think of the creation of Ultron, not Aarkus. But we have a brief bio and his ability list today. “Vision, whose true name is Aarkus, is an alien law enforcement officer from a dimension known as Smokeworld. After being accidentally contacted by a scientist from Earth, Aarkus came to our dimension to fight crime. He has the ability to control gasses, smoke and cold, even teleporting to the far side of the world using little more than a smoldering cigar.” Vision’s (Aarkus’) Mechanics: Aarkus starts every fight with a Power Gain Buff and gains more over time. As long as he has at least one of these Buffs, he can inflict Armor Break Debuffs onto his Opponent just by staying near them. While under the effect of an Armor Break, Opponents also take Coldsnap damage over time. To end a fight, Aarkus can convert … [Read more...] about Marvel Contest of Champions Welcomes Golden Age Vision (Aarkus)
