* City of Heroes shutting down

MMORPG's aren't the thing they used to be, and aging games... well, they eventually go.

City of Heroes is being shut down by NCSoft, a while after going free-to-play in an attempt to keep the game going.

Over at, a petition asking them to keep it going. If you want to read; the fanbase is small, but loyal.

I had some characters of my own, but haven't logged into the game in a good while; the last time I got in, it was a bit of a ghost town. The player-generated-content function they created sounded like a great idea, but I think it hurt more than it helped, making the game so that everyone had their own little world rather than sharing one.
