My old roommate Gambit used to be utterly obsessed with this game, and for the most part he ain’t even a DC fan except for Flash and Wonder Woman. First time I saw it action, I was blown away but the level of customization. DC Universe Online is a MMORPG that can be played on PC or PlayStation 3 and 4.
The main story is Brainiac is attacking Earth and the JLA gets informed by Lex Luthor from the future that he very well can kill the planet. Meanwhile, through Exobytes that are releasing powers in ordinary people, the JLA has to try to stop Brainiac…but not all are heroes. We create our own characters from scratch: allegiance to good or evil, which mentor we will follow (Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman/ Luthor, Joker, and Circe), our costumes, our powers, weapons and means of transportation. For example: my first character is a ice villain that flies, uses hand blasters, and follows Luthor. There’s a shit load of options at start which is really cool. The roster of heroes and villains we meet in game is amazing and epic to behold; it was a dream come true to stand with Jon Stewart and Killowag and fight Sinestro, defend Gotham from a fear gas attack by Scarecrow, or help Grodd beat Flash into the ground. But for all the game has to offer, there is one teeny tiny drawback: FUCKING PAY WALL! You’re able to get your character through the opening levels and up to tier 3 of 8 before it sets in, but I guarantee you, the game gets 50 times more incredible behind the pay wall. Also, many of the insanely strong powers lay behind there too like red lanterns, atomic, and celestial powers for example. Getting into a PVP match against these powers can wreck you quick if you aren’t very well equipped. It’s $15 a month and once and a while I play but I can’t keep up with it. Overall, it’s a really cool game with a gaping flaw. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
