|04:34 am - City of Heroes: PICTURES GALORE|
Lots of CoH pictures behind the cut. Watch out little 56kers!
Here's a few of the Barista, as per the request of certains.
Lookin' snarky in Freedom Corps HQ! Of course, the camera adds a few bra sizes.
You wouldn't know it but she's running around in some sewer in these pics. Or could you tell? She's got that disgusted look on her face, hasn't she.
Tech Assault/Devices Blaster
Here's a cyborg cowboy with a robot shootin' arm! Of course he's got some backstory about bein' ambushed and left for dead and his arm amputated and this put on, but it's just fun to run around layin' down the caltrops.
Plus he has an excellent cowboy name, and a great grumpy look to him. Go git 'em, cowboy!
MARTHA THE CAT
Natural Broadsword/Dark Armor Scrapper
Martha the Cat is a mighty pirate.
Backstory involves being a space pirate (privateer, actually, working under the flag of one galactic empire to make life miserable for another) and known as "the Cat" for her agility and grace in beating down those who oppose her, yadda yadda yadda. The broadsword skill is not used all that often by scrappers, who consider themselves the gimpiest gimped class of all the gimps (the CoH board whiners' term, not mine) but I've been having fun slicing up bad guys so far.
Martial arts nuns are the best.
Mr. Influence hit level 14 tonight and, in celebration, picked up the power to fly. Flight and "Super Leap" or whatever are travel powers, and you can't get 'em until you're level 14 and have picked up a lesser travel power beforehand. Frankly, I think it's well worth the wait and a very smart move on Cryptic's part to keep a player playing up until the mid-teens to get whichever z-axis-messing-with skill you want. Once you get Flight, or Fly, or whatever it's called, all missions and goals get put ON HOLD while you do nothing but fly around cities for a while (and with a Flight Speed enhancement, you just go nuts.) I thought I'd taken a bunch of screenshots of Mr. Influence flying around Atlas Park, hovering in front of the flag for a patriotic pose and also getting into trouble while flying up the Galaxy Girl statue's skirt, but this was the only one that got saved to disk for some reason. I don't know who this hero's statue is, but I like to call her "Breakfast In America."
Hmm. Supertramp. Might be worthy of a character slot as long as I don't go the "slut" route. Battlecry could be "Goodbye, stranger! It's been nice!"
NO HOMEWORK MAN
AND IN THIS CORNER...
My guy is Spearmant, on the right. On the left is WOLVERINE32, aka CAPTAIN COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT MANS. The conversation went something like this:
Spearmant: Lemme guess. You're the best at what you do, right?
WOLVERINE32: whatever lmao
Spearmant: So what happened to the other 31 Wolverines?
WOLVERINE32: they stole my name
WOLVERINE32: i'm the realwolverine
Spearmant: Oh, sure. You should all get together and fight. Winner gets to keep the name.
WOLVERINE32: theres no pvp noob
Spearmant: No, no, not 'noob'. 'Bub.' If you're going to rip off Wolverine, you might as well go whole hog with it.
Spearmant: You really got Logan's wit down, I'll say that much for you.
WOLVERINE32: u better pray i never see u again
WOLVERINE32: ill ks u hard
WOLVERINE32: ur mobs will be mine
(NOTE: we never saw WOLVERINE32 again. lmao indeed.)

You don't suppose that that guy was one of the three people in the 'geek' world who have never heard of the X-Men, have you? Of course, this would be giving this guy a really big benefit of the doubt.
"ill ks u hard"?? Is that like "luv u lng time"?
He wouldn't be luvving me long time, but he'd do his best to 'fuk' me over. KS is "kill-steal" which is pretty much the only grief-play you can do in City of Heroes -- swoop in while someone's fighting and kill their enemies so they don't get as much experience points as they would've on their own. It's merely petty and annoying rather than potentially lethal, and those who do it often use roleplaying excuses like "OH BUT I AM A HERO I HELP PEOPLE IN NEED AND YOU WERE IN NEED, TRA LA TRA LA."
Or they just outright threaten to do it to you cause they're mad they got banned from XBox Live for saying "fag" over voice chat nineteen too many times.
What's Chuck Wagon doing wearing The Barista's pants?
Got out of the wrong side of the bed.
Her pants wouldn't fit him -- he's a brawny sort while she's slender and not-brawny. They actually shop at the same jeans shop, however, because heroes need relaxed fit jeans that can withstand bullets, atomic blasts, and even the occasional rift in the time-space continuum, yet look damn good no matter what.
Lee: The brand that fits.
(If the Fratboy saw this he'd be mighty jealous, cause he'd been talking about getting into the Barista's pants for quite some time now.)
