City of Heroes fans plan sunset memorial vigil on November 30

    
10

If you’re not feeling depressed enough about beloved MMOs this week with WildStar facing the firing squad, you can always relive the City of Heroes shutdown. Yep, veterans of the original City of Heroes are invited to gather in Paragon Chat on Friday for a vigil commemorating the loss of the game six years ago.

“Come join us on the steps of Atlas Park City Hall. HERC will have volunteers present at various times of the day to share stories, remember those who aren’t with us anymore, and hold a light for City of Heroes. Come as you are, leave when you want to. As with prior years, this isn’t an activity, just a vigil. There will be no contests or games planned by us.”

As we’ve previously covered, Paragon Chat is a non-combat emulator accessible by anyone, even if you never played the original game; it features maps, travel, chat, costumes, and bases. Bring your boombox, a mug of cocoa, and your protest signs.

Just can’t bring myself to do it. It would be too sad if everything was not there but luckily, I may not have to wait any longer to get my superhero fix since CoT may have their character creator available to Kickstarter backers by the end of this year per their last email. /crosses fingers.

Look, I enjoyed COH a lot. I interviewed Jack (and ended up in beta) so was there from the beginning, but…

COH stories seem like one of the more reliable click-farms going but, yeah. If it sprang back to life tomorrow it would go under again in a year. You can’t go home again, guys.

Man, that dagger has been twisted in the wound so often! Nice to see though. I still miss this game after all this time.

I just don’t get it. All the love for this game and no emulator for it.

Paragon Chat is kinda like it. SEGS is in the works but as I have heard, the code for it was fairly spaghetti coding so…

Yeah that’s what I’ve been thinking. We’ve got emulators/private servers for MMOs like Warhammer Age of Reckoning and Star Wars Galaxies, surprised CoX isn’t there yet.

The warhammer one is surprisingly really good
