(Everyone calls launch day CO-day, right?)
John Layman, the kind and quirky Champions Online writer, had plenty to say about how much he wrote. Apparently the man locked himself away in a room and was sustained via comics, game updates and snack packs. At least this is our assumption when we found out he wrote 29 pages of content for a single segment of one neighborhood in one zone. At least John is able to chat with Steve Long (writer of the table-top RPG) to coordinate between the next book and Cryptic's MMO version.
As for other bits of less news-like things -- but otherwise entertaining -- Bill Roper's final word on how the game was originally built around Marvel before being switched over to the Champions table-top IP were, "Marvel Shmarvel" Incidentally, Marvel announced a new paste spread by the very same name this weekend. At least, they did in our twisted minds.
