DC Universe Online preps GU59, new looting features

If you dropped by DC Universe Online’s PC test server over the weekend, you were greeted with Game Update 59 for testing, whether or not you’re a paid subber. The update focuses on a major expansion to the way you’ll snag loot from On Duty content. Says Daybreak,

“We have extended our Loot Choice UI to the earlier tiers of DCUO! Now all solos, duos, alerts and raids available in the On Duty menu have this feature added. This gives players the opportunity to choose what loot they receive from bosses. Upon defeating a boss, the player will be presented with a new UI that allows them to choose from a list of available loot. After the main choice has been made, the UI will then display all items received from the KO.”

The update will also include improvements to the tutorial, bug fixes for operations and missions, and updates to movement and sorcery powers.

I was going to comment on Superman’s face, but I see that’s already been taken care of.

Nordavind Quincha Gosh, I thought you were kidding. I thought it was a Daybreak joke. <3

Just wish the baseline character faces in Champions Online looked less cartoony and goofy. That always put me off about the game, personally.

Yeah, the evaporation of the story content drove me out too.
It all seems to be grouping and gear-grind, past a certain point, which makes me sad (and bored).

Superman looks so damn weird in that title pic. If not for the alt-Super suit, I wouldn’t have recognized him at all — and I’m a Superman fan.

It’s funny how he’s the only thing enjoyable about BvS when I thought he’d be the worst part the moment he was cast. He’s come a long way from the atrocity that is the Daredevil movie.

Greaterdivinity Damonvile So should this be considered an act of Face Shaming?

Lol. As soon as I saw the image I thought: “Hah!? Hitler shaved his moustache… gained superpowers?”
I don’t know though, that ‘stache was an important part of his brand. I hope he thought it through.

Dnote I leveled up to 30 and was just bombarded with dailies. I was like, NOPE!

I’m sure I’m missing a storyline quest somewhere, but all I saw were dailies everywhere.

MorpayneRADIO Was one of the few games where I really enjoyed the random open world PvP. It always felt like it was just part of the game, rather than a brat kid out to gank you.

I kind of miss this since seeing Batman v Superman.

But it felt like a grind at 30.

Kind of funny that Champions Online has better looking DC characters than DCU does:

Stopped playing this when they ended pvp servers and instead made it a pvp “phase” you had to toggle. It effectively killed opvp since now the pvp phase is a ghost town since it’s not on by default. Most new players don’t even know about phase shift.
Others disagree and claim the game is great without having to deal pvp but there is no substitute for the older style, 3-4 villians on your team and you’re all trying to kill an open world boss like the Flash, Superman or Batman and all of a sudden 5 heroes roll up and now it’s a major brawl with both sides calling people in. That was how the game was meant to played.

Would Superman’s Face be classified as one of those ‘bugs’?  Because…wow…

Damonvile Hey, Bizaro Superman spent a lot of money on those plastic surgeries and skin colorations. HOW DARE YOU SHAME HIM LIKE THAT, HE JUST WANTS TO FIT IN WITH EVERYONE ELSE!

Loot menu is a neat idea. I wouldn’t hate seeing that more often. I was never a fan of the token system and the totally random system is ass.

Also, that’s the worst looking superman ever.

Neat. Anyone know when the account-wide gear/appearance unlock is supposed to make it into the game? Or did I miss that already >.>
