Am excited! Hopefully the animations on the flaming pumpkin man there look right in spite over his oversized limbs.

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

Methinks this would fall under the same ‘feature’ that wasn’t turned on which allowed the characters hand to show through on the ArmCannon on the last post. But...good to know, A: Creepy Pumpkin Head, B: Adjustable Proportions don’t look that bad, C: Ceiling Fan, Chairs, Cars and other random debris in the Background. Nice stuff, can’t wait to see the results of the Costume Contest!

Meh. Bah!

I haven't directly touched the latest chargen yet, but I believe those backgrounds aren't just static images but an actual place. It means the lighting is consistent with what you'll see in the game.

AWESOME! On of the banes of RPGs is the character creator being in unusual (usually very dark) lighting, then the character looks totally different in the usually fairly bright world. CoH did a pretty bad job at this until the lighting option, but having actual places is so much better!

Also I love the elongated arms: we'll have so many spooky options.

This is a neat idea, and might actually make someone who is generally disinterested in badge hunting seek out new locations; It also doesn't give anything important to badge hunters over non-badge hunters, which is nice; In-game benefits to badges start to make it feel like they're a mandatory part of play.

I have always found the evenings in autumn an easy time to spend playing CoH... I would play for about 6-8 months and then go rouge during the spring/summer. Going away and coming back kind of felt like coming home for the summer while away at college. I still had my favorite street corners, shops and rooftops to hangout, but looking for the little surprises of a new expansion were always fun! I have to say that one of my favorite was the Halloween Expansion ... fighting the pumpkins was A LOT of fun!!! (And always a place I looked forward to visiting!)

Thanks for the quick stroll down Memory Lane :j I hope to fight some similar baddies in CoT!!

Yeah, though I would swap between WoW and CoH every few months, Halloween and Christmas were always spent in CoH. Trick or Treating in St. Martial, hanging out at the ski lodge. A lot of MMOs turn holidays into a checklist (better do x things every day for y currency for z reward only available in this timeframe), but CoH focused more on the actual atmosphere and events. I get really tired of holidays in WoW, I never thought 'huh, the Ski Lodge has been open too long..'

I really love this idea. Maybe not as a launch feature, but something to consider down the line. This could probably be added to exploration badges retroactively pretty easily.

My son one time called CO missions "a few diamonds in a huge pile of crap". By far most missions were annoying at best. BUT the Adventure Packs and Comic Series had a few amazingly good missions scattered amongst them.

A couple of quick examples:

1) The second mission in the Snowcrash series, Whiteout mission 2, Ice Station Aplaca--it gets genuinely creepy, interesting, and is a perfect challenge level (if done at the intended level) to be fun but not frustrating solo or with a team--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9boAhR1QCHU

2) The part of the Resistance Adventure Pack where you pilot A FREAKING GIANT ROBOT AGAINST A KAIJU 0.0--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSi-eidUvEE

There are a few more, but MOST CO missions are junk.

FIGHT EVIL! (or go cause trouble so the Heroes have something to do.)

Many blue moons ago, I submitted an event idea to the CoH/V devs that was along these lines. It was more involved, and it had multiple options for success, one of which involved a covered bridge as inspired by the story. Perhaps it could find a life here...

Yes! With Zombie Slayer title and even costume unlocks. For more fun, have your setting change for less maneuverability, the stage becoming more enclosed the higher your you get. Until the final stage is just you and the boss and a tiny room.

I'll see your headless

I'll see your headless horseman and raise you the Nuckelavee

I do like the idea of a endless wave horde mission/ trial. Each wave gets progressively harder until everyone is dead. Rewards would be issued at the end of each wave rather than as a mission reward. The spawns would have to be controlled by an algorithm rather than programmed because eventually someone would figure it out and beat all the programmed waves.

PS. the little Ruby Rose icon on the ruby wikia tab is effin cute.
