  1. @ Barugaara

    It’s for sure, a game you should try. No new game is a guarantee to make you change your preference of games, but it’s never a good thing to be closed minded to try out new things.

    I tried it, but it wasn’t enough for me to want to pay a subscription fee. With it going away, I will be playing it again and more often when I’m not on WoW.

  2. @Barugaara

    Yes. It’s action-oriented, shooter gameplay is a good complement to something slower, and more time-consuming than WoW. You can sit around all day and grind, or you can just hop on for some quick matches.

  3. Well I interested in the AvA concept, but from what you described, it sounds very unbalanced with Agency population.

  4. It can be. They just recently separated it into three maps, one for each “region” that plays the game. That’s a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it. All you’ve really got to do is play for awhile, get good at the game, then try applying to one of the agencies you find on the map. Of course, JL is the biggest and probably most demanding. But AvA is definitely top-level play, so you’re going to have to perform reasonably well to join anything of them. :)

  5. According to you guys, I apparently am destined, DESTINED to play the Marvel Super Hero Squad Online MMO. Do I have a say in this? So help me Kami. :)

    Great conversation, I enjoyed it!
