A Hero No More

April 19th, 2005

This morning I dropped my subscription to the City of Heroes online role-playing game. There was nothing wrong; in fact, I quite enjoyed my time in Paragon City. It’s just that I realized that I hadn’t played in at least a couple of months, and that I’m simply more interested in other stuff right now. So long, Ms. Mesmer, you were a valiant heroine.

One of my current activities is, ironically enough, another superhero-based computer game: Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich. It’s a squad-based strategy game in which one leads an ever-changing roster of ’60s style comic book heroes against the forces of badness, including, I’m told, Nazis. I love old-fashioned, earnest superheroics, and I love fighting Nazis, so I’m having a good time.

I’ve also been doing more Warhammer 40K modeling. I used my “educator’s discount” at Borders last weekend to pick up a copy of the Battle for Macragge starter set, which includes a full squad of Space Marines and a couple of units of nasty, alien Tyranids. I’m hoping to put together a small Tyranid army in the not-so-distant future, and also to give my Sisters of Battle a bit of Space Marine help.
