More Geek Points

Well, PlayNC has lifed their non-disclosure agreement, so I can now reveal that for the last several weeks I've been a beta tester for their Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game (MMORPG), City of Villains. City of Villains is the spinoff/sequel to City of Heroes, in which you can create superheroic alter-egos and do battle against the forces of evil. City of Villains, as the name implies, allows players to do just the opposite.

As a beta tester, my job is to play a prototype (the "beta version") of the game, and by doing so discover bugs, comment upon gameplay issues, and offer constructive criticism of all aspects of the game. I haven't had the time to do as much testing as I'd like lately, but this weekend is the first free one I've had in ages, so I'll be up to a lot of virtual calumny over the next couple of days. I haven't had the chance to rob a bank or harass innocent people yet, and I'm just itching for the chance. Muah hah hah hah!

You really think this is nerdier than writing an essay on Star Trek's automatic doors?

Sean Woods said...

I didn't go so far as to say that; such a thing is an assumption on your part.

For the record, participating as a beta tester *is* nerdier. = )

Earl,
I'm so proud of you.
Sniff, sniff.

Would the Oscillator be able to stop any of the baddies you make?

We're talking about a guy with the wits and speed to outrun a nuclear explosion at point-blank range, so yeah, I think the Oscillator could take out most CoV baddies. ;)
