Cant remember who it was that I talked to about this at a game, but I did actually end up picking it up, and it is surprisingly fun and addictive. First time I got fly, I spent like 20 minutes just flying around the city, amusing as all hell. Its very different from other MMO games out there, far more casual player oriented. You can basically pick it up and put it down around your schedule, dont ever need to group if you dont feel like it. Or you can form a huge group and go slaughter the hell out of villains in some of the cooler parts of the city.

If you do end up picking it up, feel free to start up a hero on Pinnacle and look for Frostrake, Ive got a small supergroup of friends started up (mostly lower levels).

I have been eyeing this game because I really like the superhero genre. A friend of mine plays it and he has a blast with it.

The only problem for me is that I don't have enough RAM and I have sworn off PC gaming and simply gotten an X-Box. I like the idea of having a game always work when you put it in your system... I got tired of worrying about the specs for my system and the games themselves.

...

give your X-box about... 3 months. Then it starts having trouble reading disks, playing movies, etc...

I have had it over three months... not a problem... your system may have been defective... did you try calling the company?

A few times. Give it time. Usually right about when the warranty wears out... or if you try to use a even slightly-less-than-perfect disk...

I've had mine for over a year and never had a problem with it playing a game... including used and rentals. But than again I rarely use my xbox.

Same here... that is why I am all irritate that my fiance wants to put the DVD player in the bedroom and use the X-Box as our DVD player too...

How much did you use it for movies and such SM? I did notice my friends X-box having problems with discs too..

Movies and extended use (like, 2 hours plus) seem to screw them up...

I've had the same problems with DVD's. No problem with games though, and I've got some nearly destroyed games.
