The Bad-man of Alcatraz
No Clint Eastwood, but some big names in MMO gaming (and a few schmoes dressed up as comic book supervillains) were in San Francisco bay to showcase "City of Villains" - next-to-release MMO (late October) and stand-alone sequel to the immensely popular City of Heroes.
"NCsoft recently held an event in San Francisco, or rather, in the San Francisco Bay, to showcase some of the new features being implemented in their upcoming title, City of Villains – particularly base building and base raids. Held within the confines of Alcatraz Island, Lord Recluse and his right-hand woman, Ghost Widow, were on hand to interest the attendees into joining their league of evil, Arachnos.
Not to be outdone by these villains, our hero Robert Garriott, CEO NCsoft North America, presented his plan for subscriber domination: Two games, one fee - $14.95."
