Today’s lack of posting is brought to you by an acute case of City of Heroes alt-itis.
This is where I would express sorrow and contrition, if I felt any. Frankly, this game is just too much dang fun.
Even grouping. Especially grouping. This, coming from one of the world’s most dedicated solo players. A guy who took a hunter to level 24 in World of Warcraft, and another to level 38. In CoH, I’ve come to see time spent not in a group as downtime. This was something I would not have thought possible.
Detective Grimm is still my favorite character in concept, although in the long run Fullmetal Jackie (my energy / energy blaster on the Freedom server) is more fun to play. She hit level 24 last night.
I have pages of notes on this game, and I’d be sharing them here if I had time to refine them into posts. But really, I’m just too busy playing.

Lists of 'best games ever' are dumb and annoying. But like a self-loathing hipster I made one anyway.
