Although this is NSFW due to lots of foul language and heaping lots of contempt, I found the Zero Punctuation review of the DC Universe Online game entertaining. Key quote:
“Is this one of those things that only makes sense after you’ve read issue #471 of The Adventures of Captain Indecisive?”
His metaphor of pooping to explain why a story that ends is preferable to one that never does may be crude, but I agree with the point. And as I thought, “It’s less about creating a superhero than aping the ones DC had already made up.” Croshaw concludes that the game is intended for DC comic fans only, but I think that’s exactly the market they intended, and the one that will make them most successful.
