What I've been playing lately: DC Universe Online

When I first heard about this game I thought it sounded terrible. After watching some ingame footage some months ago I thought it looked cool, but I probably wouldn't spend my money on it. But after watching streams of people play it online, I just couldn't resist.

Now I'll go over the character creation process of DCUO.

The character creation is fairly impressive. The only things you pretty much can't edit are the proportions of your characters. For instance:

If you want to play a female character, you can only have huge boobs. What if I wanted massive boobs? How am I suppose to role play a super hero who had radioactive goo spilt all over her breasts? Whatever.

Next you pick a Morality:

This will decide your faction. Think of Horde vs. Alliance in WoW.

Then you pick your Mentor. A hero can pick Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman, while a villian can choose The Joker, Lex Luther or Circe. These don't affect combat. From all I can see they decide your starting area and the type of quest loot you might get.

Now is probably one of the more important decisions. You super powers. Your super power will decide you roll. This will be your class. The super powers are broken down into three catagories: Tank, Healer and Controller. Mind you every super power has the option to be a damage dealer.

If you're anything like me, at this point you'd go only and see what power cry about the most. Alot of the tears seemed to flow towards fire. And appearently they failed to extinguish fire's OPness.

From here you get to select the way your super hero will get around. Movement modes come in three flavors: Flight, Acrobatics and Super Speed. Super Speed makes you look the most rediculous so naturally I selected it.

Weapon type is the next thing you get to choose, and they is alot to pick from. I'm not going to go over all of them.

And now comes the best part of the character creation process: Making yourself look as slutty/rediculous as possible.

Nice. There's enough slut... But it needs a little more redic.


So all in all the game is pretty fun. It's a lot different from your standard WoW clone you might play. The combat system is fun. When you get stunned it's because you made a mistake, not because of RNG.


  1. the game looks sweet ill have to pick it up

  2. the slutty black chick with sunglasses wasn't ridiculous enough, she just HAD to have leopard skin too

  3. Is dressing like a pimp a superpower? Because I'm gonna dress like a pimp.

  4. The game seems so amazing. Creating you're own hero seems cool. Love the game trailer as well. BTW...I made you new blog of the day.

  5. Character kinda looked like samus! Until it changed into the black chick

  6. Yeah it's actually alot of fun so far. I'll post some more about it.

  7. it looks pretty cool, nice guide lol

  8. This looks like it could be a lot of fun, the character customization looks awesome.

  9. I'd probably pick the same powers, for the same reasons.

  10. Game looks cool, might try it :o

  11. Cool, I have a friend who plays this a lot.

  12. Tried the beta, but couldn't really get into it.

  13. I've wanted to play this, but I don't want to buy it and not like it. I'd love for them to come out with a 14 day trial.
