Last week was painful, not just for me but for a lot of you was well. I’m touched by the number of comments I received on last week’s article, and I can understand why a lot of you thought that this was curtains for the column as well as for the game. It was a sad ending, with a note of hope almost buried by all of the crushing emotion. You and I lost a friend that’s been with us for more than eight years; it’s hard to be optimistic.
But I’m still here. And I’m still the same person I was a week ago, if somewhat diminished by loss. And now it’s time to move along.
I’ve written the last word there is for me to write on the subject of City of Heroes, but as it turns out, I still have a lot more to say about the genre. This probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise to regular readers. I’m a guy who loves superheroes, and losing a home hurts, but it doesn’t mean I’m hanging up my cape. It means that I need to find a new home. And I’d be remiss in not asking anyone else along for the ride.
