Video game music can only take us so far. When the going gets tough and the boredom sets in, I turn off the sound and insert my own soundtrack using my favorite bands. It is the reason why I've done so much in the MMO world. It keeps me moving. Everyone has a way to motivate themselves to play something. Mine is music.
MMORPGS are the ultimate time consumer in the gaming world. Several big names games such as City of Heroes, LOTRO, DC Universe Online have gone free to play.

"PushStartSelect: "DC Universe didn’t get too bad of reviews and the fan reaction to it was pretty good. However like most MMO’s it didn’t make it the long haul and somewhat simmered down over time. Of course this, like other big MMO’s such as APB, turned it into a free-to-play game. Here is our take.""

I have been in some strange situations in my years of gaming but this one just threw me for a loop. Some how I don't even know how I fell out of the watchtower that orbits the earth. You have to see it to believe it i don't think anyone else has experienced this strange situation.

Some missions get interrupted by villains that are trolling around looking for trouble. It makes it a bit harder to achieve you objectives while having to watch your back all the time.

"It’s been at least two years since I last walked the streets of Paragon City and rode the planes of Azeroth, and ever since leaving both virtual realms there has been an MMO-shaped hole in my gaming routine. Sure, there have been games which offer elements akin to MMOs, such as Call of Duty’s dynamic progression system, and Resistance 2’s instance-like co-operative missions, but there has yet to be a successful full-on MMO for home consoles."
"DC Universe is the first to take on the open world MMO on a console. Yes we know the PS3 has other large online games such as MAG but this is very different. Set in the comic book universe of DC comics which included super hero’s such as Batman and Superman and villains like the Joker and Scarecrow and such well known cities such as Metropolis and Gotham. Calling on the talents of some of DC’s best writers and artists such as Mary Wolfman and Geoff Johns to recreate the world and the story lines"
Tyler Chancey from AAG writes: "DC Universe Online can best be summarized as the console equivalent of World of Warcraft. You create a character, level up, there’s a monthly subscription fee, and you can easily forget to eat supper if you’re not careful. What separates this massive DC comic inspired game from WOW, however, is it was advertised not as an MMORPG but an MMOAG (Massive Multiplayer Online Action Game). But is this project just another WOW clone in tights, or is true to the hype?"
"2010 gave PC gamers enough variety and support to keep most of us happy and push away the rumors that “PC gaming is dead”. The long awaited Star Craft 2 was welcomed with open arms by Star Craft fans, the latest installment of the Call of Duty series let us have dedicated servers for Black Ops even though the game its self was a little on the buggy side, Indie developers showed the big boys how to make a scary game with Amnesia, WoW players scored another dose of their addiction in the form o..."
DC Universe Online is one of the most anticipated MMO games to hit consoles in a very long time and after what happened to Final Fantasy XIV, it shouldn't be much surprise that a lot of people want to know how this game will turn out before they are willing to put down their hard earned dollars. Here, in the first of many DCUO videos to surface, check out the intro cinematic cut-scene and see for yourself how insanely well put together and exciting the story looks for this title.
After a playing this one for a little while I am sure if you like MMOs you will enjoy this one. With the classic hero's powers and moves you will create your own hero to help save the planet from eminent destruction. One way or another if you decide to take on the challenge it will keep you coming back to fight the good fight.
"There are video games out there that let you take over the life of some other superhero, or even MMOs that let you create your own in a living breathing world and they range from great to simply god awful. Based on the beta DC Universe Online is looking to hit that meaty part of the curve also known as ‘meh’."
"Apparently hundreds if not thousands of gamers who followed the instructions and submitted a receipt before November 15th did not receive their beta invite. Is this a taste of things to come? Hopefully not. Not only did DC Universe flub the beta launch, they only told the community who was expecting yet didn’t receive them to contact customer service AFTER they had closed for the weekend. Understandably the community is upset and frustrated. Would you want to pay 15 bucks a month to play a ga..."
"This week's Cosplay Babe of the Week is the very popular character from both comic books and videogames who carries a lasso and flies an invisible jet. It's none other than Wonder Woman herself. Possibly known more for comic books and film, Wonder Woman has appeared in many games"
"Holy Flash, Batman! There has been a lot of talk about DC Universe Online, Sony has finally revealed a teaser for their very hyped super-hero game. DC Universe Online is a very ambitious title.

Releasing on the PC and PS3, players of either console will be able to play together and those who choose to pla..."
"A new set of screenshots from Sony Online Entertainment depict Kara Zor-L, aka Power Girl, showing off her mysterious ability to avoid severe and constant back pain.
Power Girl is the Earth-Two counterpart to Supergirl, sent to Earth from Krypton in a ship much slower than the one that delivered Clark Kent to the DCU. She was also briefly the granddaughter of Atlantean sorcerer Arion, before DC realized that was just silly and made things right again."
"The industry has had it perfected for roughly five years now, or since the release of Spiderman 2. What I’m talking about is your controlled character’s ability to cross gigantic cityscapes quicker than you can say “parcheesi.” Quicker, I say, because you might stutter a couple of times.
I should have chosen a different word.
Surprisingly, it got even better from there. Ultimate Spiderman succeeded Spiderman 2, and last year we were lucky enough to get both InFamous and Prototype; the c..."
Dick Grayson might currently be galivanting around the comic book world as Batman while Bruce is "out of commission", but don't expect him to be dressed as Bats in DC Universe Online (wouldn't that be disappointing!). It has been confirmed that he will will be appearing as Nightwing in DC Universe Online.

"We got our fair share of MMOs to oggle at this year at E3, with a few missing in action, but the bulk of this bellow were there. The list compiles of ten hopeful MMOs that are all expected to launch some time next year, and it isn’t just PC based, there are a few PS3 and Xbox 360 MMOs thrown in there too. Enjoy!"
"I had never laid my hands on a single bit of MMO action until late 2007. Don’t get me wrong, I had always wanted to play one since the days of Everquest; but to be fair I was a bit young to be shelling out subscription fees and upgrading my computer. However, after hearing about World of Warcraft’s global success of 11 million players and counting, I had just finished with Warcraft III for the PC and I was intrigued. I had actually purchased the client disc for World of Warcraft a few months ..."
Kotaku has released some new screens and concept art detailing the the character of The Flash in DC Universe Online.
Most comic fans have some sort of soft spot for Flash that those not a fan of the genre could never really understand. Fan or not, everyone can agree that running as fast as this guy would awesome.
"Doomsday, the cursed Kryptonian creature, was bred to embody hate and rage. His sole reason for living is to extinguish all other life, including the citizens of Metropolis and their beloved hero, Superman.
Born on the planet Krypton during a time when only the strongest creatures could survive, Doomsday was the result of a rapid natural selection process bred to hate all life. Doomsday’s body is covered with vicious bony spurs that can render even Superman’s skin. His endurance makes him ..."
"The public hasn't seen much of The Agency since it was first revealed in 2007. When questioned about the lack of updates on the ambitious PC/PS3 online espionage game, SOE's Hal Milton told us: "We don't want to keep having hype sessions just showing movies and crap. We need to make the game and not just keep promoting it."
GDC continues that idea, with Sony Online Entertainment revealing nothing more than a distant release window for both The Agency and DC Universe Online. John Smedley, p..."
"In case you didnt know, theres more character options in DC Universe Online than just the standard-fare assortment of masked heroes from the DC comics. Players can actually create their own character, as it was outlined when the game was originally announced. Well, we have some new screen-captures and a new trailer up featuring custom characters."
"As a gamer, this is a dream project in many ways, said Wolfman. I get to create new stories in the DC Universe that will make this videogame world a truly unique, unforgettable experience.

DC Universe Online is an MMO being developed by DC and Sony Online Entertainment set for release later this year. SOE is trying to focus on making the game a lot more interactive than City of Heroes, the other big super-hero MMO on the block, with a ton of dynamically-generated content.
"We see that marketing coming; we think it's there now, so we want to get a good market share there. I would say that we would be one of the early adopters on [bringing MMOs to consoles], and we plan on becoming one of the dominant players in the MMO space on consoles...
I think what's going to happen is you're going to see a whole new generation of players that have been playing 'Resistance' now start getting introduced to MMOs. I think it's going to be a cool way for them to experience ga..."
"You may know that Sony Online Entertainment's two upcoming MMO's, the shooter The Agency and RPG DC Universe Online, are coming to both the PC and the PS3. Guess SOE feels pretty good about how the development is going and it looks like more of their MMOs will appear on consoles in the future."
"The writer behind DC Comics such as Green Lantern, Action Comics and Justice Society of America will now put pen to paper for MMO, DC Universe Online.
"Having a writer of Geoff's caliber brings even more authenticity to the DC Universe Online, and should provide fans with an exciting new medium for his storytelling skills," said John Blakely, SOE-Austin's VP of Development. "Together with Jim Lee, who is our executive creative director for the game, we are tapping into the very best talent..."
"There is no class system in Champions Online. Every level you acquire means you get points to put into powers you have or to pick up new powers. Where DCUO gives you four powers to allow for the four button controls, Champions Online lets you use all your powers at any time while playing."
DC Universe Online, a MMO game with a bunch of different heroes and villains, was shown at the E3 2008 Sony Press Conference by Jim Lee, who publishes and creates comic books. You will be able to play as any hero or villain, saving the world or causing a lot of trouble in it. Chris Cao, who is the Creative Director for Sony Online Entertainment, told TGR that there will be a playable demo at the Comic Con. The demo will have Superman fighting one of his many foes, Kryptonian A.I. Brainiac. Th...
