Marvel Heroes adds Arachne team-up, starts Mardi Gras

    
9

It does seem as though any popular superhero will inevitably drum up a bunch of me-too imitators, from Batgirl to Wonder Dude (who totally doesn’t exist but should). So if you have a penchant for the Spider-Man family but would like a female version to tag along with you, then Marvel Heroes has a new Arachne team-up available for the asking (and paying).

In other news, the game is throwing a conjoined Mardi Gras/Carnival event in addition to Valentine’s Day and Lunar New Year drops. During Mardi Gras, players can trade beads and masks to Gambit for rewards, get extra daily rewards (including eternity splinters), fight bosses who may drop double loot, and enjoy a 100% boost to XP and rare item find.

Free2play done right, all zones, story, pvp, raids are free.  Only things you play for is other heroes, different outfits, boosts and Storage.  You can literally play the entire game for free and never have to play a dime.  Achievements coming soon, second raid soon , team up revamp soon, Punisher review soon and ICEMAN.  Why you haven’t downloaded it already is beyond me.,

The only problem I have with the event is that you can only go to Gambit once a day. I’ve got lots of Mardi Gras drops and nothing to do with them. I was hoping he would have a little mini store.

On a side note, finally bought my first legendary. :)

mysecretid Justin’s. And all he’s going to say is… Squirrel Girl Squirrel Girl Squirrel Girl. :D
I actually dragged one of my guildies — who normally despises ARPGs and Diablo clones — into MH and he loves it. That’s an endorsement!

Marvel does have Wonder Man which is about as close to Wonder Dude as you’re going to get. He also happens to be very powerful.

Wonder Dude will never exist. Spider-woman/She-hulk/Batgirl turns out to be a more interesting character than Spider-man/The Hulk/Batman? Great! Let’s make a spin-off comic.

Wonder Dude turns out to be a more interesting character than Wonder Woman? Torches and Pitchforks.

I feel compelled to make the obligatory Marvel cash-shop related comment —

The game is still very fun (if you like that sort of thing), and no one is obligated to buy anything in order to play. Heroes, and Team-Up heroes like Arachne, can be bought with Eternity Splinter drops found simply by playing the game. 
Brand-new Heroes and Team-Ups aren’t don’t always go onto the Eternity Splinters purchase list immediately, but they all seem to get there eventually. Basically, you’re spending time instead of money.

Obligatory comment ended. Whose turn is it next time? :-)
