@Kabalyero: It’s not immediately obvious that picking the ‘alien’ option for character race opens up all the customisation options, thus allowing one to create their own unique race within the game. It’s rather fun, and coming from Cryptic it’s no surprise that the options are varied and flexible, City of Heroes has always had a super-powered character creator after all.
@Stabs: Good lord yes, otherwise the south of England would be rife with spates of drive-by MMO criticism, and gang game satirisation.
People who are so passionate about ‘character creation’ always perplexed me. All that time and effort, gone, at the donning of a helmet.
And then this gem. While I will never be an advocate, I now support the cause.
