DC Universe Online Hands-On Preview

I freely admit that I've got next to no experience with MMOs. I rarely play games on the PC, and my schedule is so busy and erratic that trying to coordinate with other people is next to impossible. As a result, I had only cursory knowledge of what DC Universe Online had to offer. However, after the thorough walkthrough provided by one of the game's developers, I'd be more than willing to give this one a shot.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Uber Entertainment, the creators of Monday Night Combat, back in August before the game released.

When Xbox Live's director of policy and enforcement, Stephen Toulouse, stridently vowed to ban any Call of Duty: Black Ops player who sports a swastika emblem online, I can't say I felt any particular way about it. As an fence sitter on the subject of censorship, I much prefer to let others do the hard work of untangling that Gordian Knot.

Mcnamara? Really? You Couldn't Throw Eisenhower or Truman in There?

HIGH: JFK spouting off one-liners while blasting zombies in the face.

LOW: The complete and total incompetence of my squadmates.

WTF: Why does the guy I'm torturing suddenly turn around and help me when the bad guys show up?

Halo: Reach Review

If it Sells, Don't Fix it

HIGH Flying over New Alexandria, watching a losing battle and feeling powerless to help.

LOW Without dual guns fighting Elites is once again a mind-numbing chore.

WTF "A silent testament to the never-give-up, never-think-things-out spirit of the UNSC."
