Ship of Heroes
« on: August 29, 2017, 02:43:06 PM »
I checked some of the updates and fresh videos from Ship of Heroes the other day.  Man....I've just got to say....they appear to be leading all the other contenders trying to assume the mantle of CoH.  The videos of the devs playing their characters in a short mission were stunningly familiar.  They'll put a craving on ya!  Player movements, visual effects, power animations...are all comfortably familiar. 

The amount of progress they've made in so short a period of time is amazing.

It really does make you homesick for a certain city in Rhode Island, doesn't it? But I really wish that people would stop playng music in the background in their videos. It distracts me from what I'm trying to watch, and I just find it to be really irritating. In the case of a gameplay sample, I'd rather hear the powers' sound effects.

Out of the contenders.. this is the only one that has not only made a public checklist of goals, but has met each and every one!  They are a spiritual successor in many ways as they all use to be avid players.  I'm excited for City of Titans... but as far as I've searched the depths of the net.. there has been no 'real' public update or announcement since IGN back in 2014... There is a certain significance in holding things close to the vest...not showing too much so that people will 'flock' to you out of pure exhilaration of shock and awe and 'finally'!  But, there is also a mainstream of followers.

Outside of the public announcements and updates. I love that they have an open donation line for people to get in escorted alpha tests.. to play with the creators and give them HARD, BRUTAL, REAL feedback of the experiences.  The alpha isn't live yet but is coming up.  I hope to save enough to donate in and get an invite.  They explain everything rather well in their forums.. so I won't spend much more time on it...

The main thing that the CEO stated that makes me excited to play is that.. at launch... they aren't gearing to people with fancy gaming rigs.  They are intending to head that direction but for people like myself with a on par Laptop.. and okay connection.. this is beautiful news!

The CEO explains his reason in an interview on youtube with PositiveGamer over a Skype.  I recommend watching

I've put in my $25 for future Beta Tester.  Hope I get a chance reasonably soon!

I will have to keep on eye on this.

Seems like COH without being COH. Even the logo is very similar.

If it keeps going like this could be the next best thing to getting the game back.

They just updated their character creator.  Just like every update to the game so far, this is a quality update.  There are no flies on this group of devs.
