It's old news by now, but for those of you who haven't heard: City of Heroes is being shut down. I'm told the lights go out November 30th. It's no secret that the majority of my blog content has been about City of Heroes, so that leaves me with a very important question to answer for anyone still reading this. What now?
Before I get to that, I need to say this to all my friends in game that haven't seen me in a while: I'm sorry. When the news hit us over a month ago, it took something away from the game for me. I logged in once and tried to have a bit of fun, but that knowledge of the impending end just wouldn't go away. I simply haven't had the heart to log in since. I had always claimed I'd be there until the bitter end, but I had no idea how bitter this could taste.
That said, I'm still here. My writing is still important to me. The stories I started are incomplete, and I won't stop until they're done. More than that, I won't stop sharing my knowledge of the games I play. Since City of Heroes has closed, I've been able to focus much more time into an old past time of mine, Magic: The Gathering. Right now I'm very much into Draft and EDH, I've been getting into Legacy again, and we'll see where it goes from there.
I have found a new MMO that I really enjoy: The Secret World. If you care to meet up with me in game, the name is Dechs, and I'm on the Arcadia dimension. More of my thoughts on the game can be found here.
Thanks for reading,
