Ever-Questin’: Sony’s MMOs Return

By Alec Meer on May 16th, 2011.

Grumpy subscribers, yesterday

Sony had some sort of little problem recently, I hear. Why, someone even claimed that, following a serious security compromise, all of their PlayStation online services had been offline for about six weeks, but they’ve got to have been jerking my chain. There’s no way a major technology firm could allow that to happen, surely. I mean, that would simply be absurd. Absurd.

Things are on the mend now, anyway. Sony Online Entertainment’s MMOs – including Everquest II, Free Realms, DC Universe Online and Star Wars: Galaxies (I wonder if SWTOR will be the final nail in that ever-troubled coffin?) – have ‘only’ been offline since May 3, but have today sputtered back to life alongside PSN.

DC Universe Reveals First Chunk Of Content

By Quintin Smith on February 3rd, 2011.

We asked Richard Cobbett Wot He Thought of DC Universe Online yesterday, and his conclusion was (spoiler!) that while he enjoyed himself he wouldn’t be subscribing for a second month. I doubt the following will be enough to change his mind, but IGN has revealed the first boistrous mess of content coming to the game in February. There’s one of those fancy pre-rendered trailers, too. Excitements!

Wot I Think: DC Universe Online

By Richard Cobbett on February 2nd, 2011.

If I were the Riddler, I'd totally abuse Batman's good nature. I'd be like 'Batman, riddle me this - where are my car keys?'

Over its 30 levels of BIFF! and POW! and KICK! and making things go SPLODE!, DC Universe Online gave me more awesome moments than any other MMORPG I’ve ever played. It also reinforced everything I hate about the genre. Let me explain, with words.

DCUO Is SOE’s “Fastest Selling Game Ever”

By Jim Rossignol on January 24th, 2011.


Ever! That’s according to the reliably twittery John Smedley. I am not sure what that actually says about the game, or SOE games generally, but it sounds positive. And… yes, we haven’t really taken a decent look at it yet, but I’ve heard some positive reports. We should get one of these layabouts on the job, eh?

What about you lot? Anyone playing? Any thoughts? Any critical quibbles? Anyone needing to team up with fellow RPS for some hot justice? (And I’ll totally sort the competition out tomorrow, closes tonight.)

Tight(s): DC Universe Online Basically Out

By Quintin Smith on January 13th, 2011.

Nana nana nana nana BAT-MAM

I appreciate the enormous advert on our site says that DC Universe is out tomorrow, but that’s in the UK. In America, it was released two days ago, and it won’t be arriving in Australia for another week. Therefore I’ve checked our readership statistics and, using the globally accepted ratio that an American is worth 0.5 Europeans and an Australian is worth 1.15 Americans, determined that 5pm, Jan 13th is the mathematically perfect time for us to post that DC Universe Online is basically out. Look, there’s a launch trailer and everything.

DC Universe: Gotham City Trailer

By Quintin Smith on November 25th, 2010.

gothmam city, city of dreams

Gotham City! It is Batman’s house. The new trailer from Sony Online Entertainment for exciting MMORPG DC Universe Online shows you all around this legendary city, but there is not a Batman to be seen. Shh. Maybe he’s sleeping. When he’s sleeping, does Batman become Sleepman? Think about it.

New Footage: DC Universe Is Fast, Grey

By John Walker on October 6th, 2010.

In a world where everyone's a hero, is anyone a hero?

As newboy Quintin reported yesterday, with his plucky spirit and eager-to-impress enthusiasm (swearing), DC Universe has unheroically slipped into 2011 (the year in which robots take over the Earth). But that doesn’t mean there can’t be new trailers for it. Not that anyone was thinking it did. I mean, based on what logic would a couple of months of delay mean that it would stop being promoted? Who’s even writing this post? An idiot, that’s who. What? Carry on.

Lex, Looser: DC Universe Online Slips

By Quintin Smith on October 5th, 2010.

Pasteface Vs. Denimzilla in the ultimate crossover battle!

Remember how you were planning your whole November around the release of DC Universe Online on November 2nd? Well, now you’re FUCKED. The MMORPG has been delayed until “early 2011″. On the plus side, anyone who pre-orders the game before November 15th in North America will still get beta access by November 30th.

What reason could there be for a delay? I’ve come up with a few theories.

DC Universe Intro Frame-By-Frame

By Kieron Gillen on September 24th, 2010.


While we didn’t blog the release of the Blur Studios intro cinematic to DC Universe for some reason, this interview between DC’s Jim Lee and Blur Studios’ Tim Miller is just a fascinating analysis of craft. They go through the full intro, beat by beat, talking and debating the choices – what works, what they wished worked better and the thinking behind it all. If you’ve any interest in this sort of thing at all, it’s an enthralling ten minutes.
