I appears that the release date for the Champions MMORPG has been set for July 14th (just 3 days after my birthday!). The HERO roleplaying system is probably my favourite RPG. Sure, it's somewhat complex and number-crunchingly heavy but I like that sort of stuff. In fact, most of the PBeMs I've played in recent years have been HERO System games.
Champions Online sort of uses the HERO rules system but obviously adapts it for MMORPG use. This Champions game looks pretty good and the idea of playing a HERO-based superhero certainly appeals - although unfortunately I don't think my lowly laptop will handle the minimum required specs for the game.
