I hope to have the Madefire interview ready to publish by tomorrow, but in the meantime –

I just came across a 90 MINUTE live-action MEGA MAN fan film, based on the classic Nintendo videogame series. It’s got some good and some bad things about it, but considering it was made on such a limited budget with no expectation of making any money from it, it’s rather impressive.

Goodbye, City of Heroes

City of Heroes, the first superhero MMO videogame, is going away this year:

In a realignment of company focus and publishing support, NCsoft has made the decision to close Paragon Studios. Effective immediately, all development on City of Heroes will cease and we will begin preparations to sunset the world’s first, and best, Super Hero MMORPG before the end of the year. As part of this, all recurring subscription billing and Paragon Market purchasing will be discontinued effective immediately. We will have more information regarding a detailed timeline for the cessation of services and what you can expect in game in the coming weeks.

Lame. First Curt Schiling’s 38 Studios and its game Kingdoms of Amalur, now this.

Maybe it’s time for the gaming industry to re-focus on cheaper options, like pen-and-paper tabletop roleplaying games. I’ve always liked those more, anyway…
