Sorry, typo.

He HASN'T been heard from, so not so much kick A$$, as it were.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

Developer 13 was the one who put glitches in the game to, "Make it more fun".

Dave, in accounting got a job delivering pizzas.

Michelle, the game mechanics developer got married, became a mommy and is working on that right now.

Kevin, the game designer opened a dress bontique.  His motto: "No Capes!"

George, the game story writer got a job writing children's books where bad little kids get eaten.

That one guy, with the...you-know, became a professional wrestler.  He goes by the name The Compiler.

Hey, PsychicKitty, can you tell what I'm thinking?
Probably something involving catnip and an expensive hotel room for the weekend.

All the Devs were replaced by foreign H1b visa holders who work for far less and supposedly have skills lacking in their American counterparts.  One of theDevs was quoted as saying, "Do you want fries with that?"

Just ran across this today, a new gaming studio called "Cold Iron", being put together by former Cryptic Devs Craig Zinkievich, who’s known to MMORPG players for his work on City of Heroes, Star Trek Online, and Neverwinter;  Shannon Posniewski, who worked on the same games plus Champions Online;  and Matt Highison, the former Neverwinter art director.

This is interesting, to say in the least.. I have always liked Poz and Craig. They had great ideas, but never really took shape, like is STO crew death.
I know this might be wishful thinking, maybe this could be the start of getting the band back together, to make a superhero mmo.
One day the Phoenix will rise again.

That or id love the devs to join one of the spiritual successors(most likely CoT).

All the Devs died in a tradegic house fire in Fresno, CA.  They apparently were trying to use a Raspberry Pi to run City of Heroes when some one spilled his Red Bull on the rig.  The house went up like tissue paper soaked in gasoline.

I would believe that, except I live in a town that boarders Fresno, and that was not on the local news.  ;-)

Maybe they paid to keep it hush-hush.  I blame the Russians.

Actually, City of Titans is almost completely done.  There is one nagging issue.  Half the team wants:
Code: [Select]
.mainScreen {
     max-width: 100%;
     width: 600px;
}
And the other half wants:
Code: [Select]
.mainScreen {
     width: 100%;
     max-width: 600px;
}

Neither side will budge and both sides insist that their way is the correct way.
Developers :roll:

I know he's not with Zenimax anymore, not since... well around March actually.

I haven't heard an update from him lately and his linkedin doesn't show anything new, so I'm not sure if he's still looking or doing something outside the industry.

ArbiterFabulous checked into TheCapeRadio's IRC tonight.  He just released a new book.

That one guy, you know who, well he was spotted at the rescue mission last night.  When asked, he said that he was helping out, but his clothes and personal hygene spoke volumes about being homeless.  And I think he was the guy who coded that enhancement unslotter thingie.  Anyway, it just goes to show you, we are lucky to wake up in the morning.
