The above link is my Flipboard magazine -- a currated collection of articles, tweets, even videos about console gaming, MMOs & DragonCon.  Over 2000 viewers and growing.


History: This blog is the third incarnation, and started as a paper RPG & desktop gaming blog.  After starting the MMO City of Heroes days after its launch in 2004,  It developed into one dedicated to that MMO, as it remained for nearly eight years. On November 30, 2012 that MMO was shut down by the company NCSoft despite an outpouring of fan support and community outrage.  Starting In December 2012, I'm going to be opening up the focus of the blog to cover ANYTHING gaming I'm playing, be it PC, XBox 360, iPad, Dragon*Con, etc.

That being said, their will be images from various games posted on this blog.  No claim here is made to the games, and no intent to infringe on any copyrights are inferred.   Copyrights are property of the respective companies.

Bio -- Double Dagger

This one got a burst of activity for a while -- but then the group started going through changes and I suffered from an altism attack as a result.   He got lots of cover time, and probably was one of the ones most likely to have hit 50 by now if the game hadn't ended.


Bio -- UltraPulsar

Getting away from the mutants for once.  I always liked this guy because of the unique mask combo, and the unique chest emblem.   This was done using two stars -- The upside down one as an emblem, and the costume that had a large star on it.    The combo produced the unique design.  He was a radioactive defender/energy blaster, which explained the full costume, fancy helm, etc.   He did see some cover time as well.   Though I got away from him working other alts.  


Bio - Blood-Eagle

This was one of my favorite blasters at the end -- and he saw some cover time.  Doing a red variation of the dark blast powers gave him a unique id--- and I usually got comments in teams about the red tentacles from time to time.    


Bio - Wild Deal

This one was another Martial Arts scrapper -- this time with super reflexes. I had 3 costumes for him at the end, each featuring a different card suit on the costume.   I did a few covers for him, also changing his logo by the suit of the costume displayed.  He won SEVERAL costume contests, or at least placed in them.  I was always getting blind tells from people saying "Cool Toon" , "Great Concept", etc.  He was in several groups .  And I've tried to recreate him in Champions as well.   (They have a symbols belt that has card suits on it -- and you can do wrist shields also featuring such emblems).  


Bio - Swift Mantis

This was one of several staff fighters I made during the last year.  This one ended up with Hero Dawn.  I started him out with no theme , but then decided to do a toon based on an insect but with no real insect features.   I've done several such before, but usually they DID have the eyes, antenna and/or wings of an insect.  


Bio -- Atomwave

Atomwave had to be one of my favorite characters toward the end.   The costume worked from day one, and got me LOTS of kudo comments.    I always had fun playing Brute Heroes.   He also worked well with Covers.


Bio -- Blitzmark

I had fun with this guy for a while -- The HLI did a slow death at the end, especially after Labor Day.  He was of course my idea for a German character.   I liked the look, the yellow electrical scrapper powers gave him an aura FAR below level 30, which is always a plus.  I still knew a little German, enough to Role play him...
