From a DC RPG to a DC FPS

I started the day playing DC Universe Online, a game I’ve put some serious time into recently. According to Steam I’ve spent 233 hours in the game so far, with 93.4 of those hours in the last two weeks. Good thing I’m on vacation! Anyway, after a few hours of DCUO this morning I decided to play a couple games of another DC title, Gotham City Impostors. I picked it up real cheap last weekend from Gamefly and I’ve not put much time into it. Why? Games for Windows Live. Half the time it won’t connect, and so I can’t play the game. The rest of the time is split between not being able to find any players in the matchmaking and getting in a rare few games. Still, the gameplay is fun enough to keep me coming back, at least for now. Below I’ve included a video of one of the matches.

Sometimes a clown just needs to shoot someone.

I prefer playing as a Bat, but the game automatically chooses which side you’re going to be on. Sadly, it makes you purchase the costume pieces for each side seperately, so while my Bat character is finally getting decked out, my Joker character still looks lame.

Good Morning DC Universe

Today is one of my favorite days: It’s Vault day! In DC Universe Online, as a premium account, I have access to the Vault once every three days. I can go on each of my characters, and it’s basically a smash and grab. You run through a small Joker themed level breaking boxes and collecting money, loot and sometimes very rare costume pieces. I’ve gotten lucky sometimes, but it’s not often. Most of the rare stuff I get is T-Shirts and Hoodies with specific heroes logo’s on them, like a Flash T-Shirt that is red with the lightning bolt symbol on the front. Still, it’s one of my favorite things in the game, just a very small part of it but so much fun. I’ve included a video below, the audio isn’t what I want, but I’m going to work on that. Enjoy.
