Hope Summers Released!


Today I bought the totally awesome Hope Summers, and here's my review! :D

---

EXPLORATION



Hope Summers has a really basic set-up. No double jump, no flight. :(
Still, walking around with her I got around three different friend requests in a matter of a few minutes. Maybe it was my 703 Squad Level but still!

I give her EXPLORATION a 3.5/5! :D

FIGHTING




Hope Summers is tons of fun to fight as. She has a few well placed gun shots, "shooting" her up to sniper status, (geddit? Huh? Huh? ...Nevermind), as well as a few strikes with the Phoenix force at the end of her combat chain. Her Hero Up is a well ranged area attack that deals sufficient damage, and her first power attack is a nice 21 damage dealing knock-back attack for those tricky minions.

I give her FIGHTING a 4.9/5!

COOL FACTOR



While she's basically Phoenix with a cape and some boots, said cape and boots are still pretty cool. I'm a sucker for those nice raggedy, ripped burlap capes, and the Gambit inspired boots are awesome. I wish her green and yellow color scheme went better with the other parts of her outfit though.

I give her COOL FACTOR a 3.9/5! :D

OVERALL: Overall I'd like to see a double jump similar to the new and improved Hawkeye's for example. It would differentiate her from the heroes that have been coming out recently. I would also like to see her a little less overpowered. But maybe that's just me. If you're a fan of Phoenix, and enjoy playing on slightly overpowered heroes, (Hulk, anyone?), then be sure to purchase her. :)

OVERALL, I rank Hope Summers as a 4.9/5! :D

A Big Update!

Okay, so I woke up a bit later then usual and I got on the computer... and saw THIS! :D


Yay a new website! Yay Gambit is prominently featured! :D
They have yet to fix a few bugs with images on their site, but for the most part I'm happy. I'm also sad, because as far as I can tell, they deleted their "Game" page which had the awesome 3D views of heroes. Sigh. Anyway, so I downloaded the new game files, which, by the way, don't seem to need to be verified anymore, and as I was coming in I saw their "new" loading screen.


Uh, that was last Halloween's loading screen. You know times are tough when they don't even have the time to make a cool new loading screen. Sigh. I prepared for a short post on the blog today about the new website, but as soon as I got into the game I saw... THIS! :D


YAAAAY! I quickly checked to see how much gold it had, and if I could afford to buy her. So it turns out... I could! Though I now only have 300 gold or something. :P


So anyway, let me talk about the new Halloween themed Daily Bugle zone, (because I talk about Hope in THIS new post)!


So there are these small photo booth type, well, booths for lack of a better word. Going in them lets you get a new, Halloween themed head! There are also more booths in the Baxter Plaza zone, by the way.
My favorite secret of all, the one I missed most, was the graveyard secret!


You know where the fountain is in the Daily Bugle zone? Well, go to your left and you'll be in the graveyard! There's an old house in the graveyard, I wonder what's in it?


Ah, the room of Dr. Strange! What happens if you sit in the chair?


Ooh, now you're a ghost!

...Anyway, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and SHSO celebrates it right! Check out the Daily Bugle zone and the Baxter Plaza zone for more secrets and surprises! Gee, am I sounding like a children's magazine or what? Guess it's time to move on...

---


Ugh. Try to figure out from the image what has changed for the worse.


...did you guess? No? Well, it's that new "30 silver" slot instead of the "40 silver" slot. No, they didn't add a few 30 silver slots where we needed them, like in place of a few ten silver slots! NO! They put it in place of a silver slot that turns into 20 GOLD! ARRRGH!
Now you only get 15 gold from that spot! This means that instead of 150 gold, which is a nice, rounded number, you get 145 gold! WHHHHHHYYYYY?!

Okay, on to the other bad news.


What the heck is wrong with Blogger? I know I'm not THAT unpopular!
I'm kidding. I know this is some sort of glitch because just the other day I looked at the poll and seven people had voted. Unless they withdrew their votes, which I'm not sure why they would do. Or maybe it was one person on seven accounts, and Blogger detected it and refused to register the votes.
It doesn't really matter, because the point is that my other poll, the one about my 100th post, ALSO closed with no votes! Remember, it's my 100th post! It's important! That's why I'm resetting these polls! Look for them in the side bar.

Anyway, to brighten this post a bit, I have a totally awesome new code for you guys! For people wishing to start a new account, they can add this code and get a free two week membership or something like that! :D

On a final note, I can finally say goodbye to Blade, who I just recently maxed. Goodbye, Blade. :(


And that pretty much wraps up this post! Be sure to check out my review of Hope Summers too! :D

Still No Hero

I remember a time when this game had a new hero or mission release every week. The reason for this was that the game had way more people working on it back then. Also, the fact that they had some time to make a ton of heroes before the game was released helped. My theory is that they have many heroes, Hope Summers, Iron Spider, Moon Knight etc. waiting to be released. The reason that they didn't have loading screens with pictures of new heroes was that they actually didn't have the heroes ready yet. It just may be that with this annoying break, they are busy fine tuning heroes for release. Also... where the heck is the Mysterio mission?! It's been almost a year since they accidentally put him on a loading screen, and the Spiderman month that came with the movie would have been a perfect time to release it! Speaking of the movie, where is the Amazing Spiderman repaint we were all expecting? They did it for the Avengers! Instead, we get an almost complete copy of the original spiderman with a few tiny changes called Ben Reily! Yeesh. Anyway... Amazing Soceity, if you're reading this, now would be an awesome time to release Moon  Knight, seeing as it's Halloween. It's not too late to make a totally awesome loading screen, you know! Oh yeah, and while you're at it, can you take all the weird henchmen out of missions where they don't belong? Like those Nameless Ones or whatever they are in the Lizard mission? It just doesn't make sense. And please take them out of the Mole Man mission too. If you want to reuse them, make a Nightmare mission. PLEASE, seriously do that.

Okay, well I'm nearing my 100th post! What do you think it should be? Tell me in the NEW POLL! :D

Nottus Releaso Heroe


The poll is closed and it looks like we have our answer! Yes, seeing the Thunderbolts and the Runaways in the game would be totally sweet! (Not to mention we'd get fourteen new heroes in the game!)
You would be able to play as Norman Osborn, Moonstone, Bullseye, Penance, Radioactive Man, Songbird, Swordsman, Venom, Nico Minoru Karolina Dean, Molly Hayes, Chase Stein, Alex Wilder, Gertrude Yorkes and Old Lace. And now for stage 3 of these polls...
Do you want to see a special What-If for these heroes' releases in the game?! :D


----

In other news, I've been pretty busy lately, going to the New York Comic-Con for three days and such.  There has also been a widespread epidemic of "Nottus Releaso Heroe" disease. I'm not exactly sure why they're holding it in but my prediction is that we'll be getting something in the coming weeks. I just keep wishing for an organized, awesome loading screen, instead of a recycled old one or one with a bunch of heroes and one new hero. I miss the old days of clearly themed months and nothing but new heroes on the loading screens. And more tickets, don't forget the tickets!
... Sigh.

New Template!


Well, I finally got around to updating the blog! :D

You'll notice the background is of Iron Man MK II. This will change every time a new hero comes out, (that I have purchased :P).

The new update is also wider, which is why this image is it's full size, rather then a shrunken version. :)

Poll Results and a New Poll!


So it looks like some of you wanted X-men, others wanted Spider-Friends or Halloween and a select group of you wanted to see Guardians of the Galaxy, but the winner of the poll is Civil War! :D



Which means it's time for a new poll...


A Nitro Mission

This mission would be released because of an event in the first few pages of Civil War, where Nitro blows up several city blocks. I'm not sure what the mission would be, but it would be cool!

The Thunderbolts and the Runaways

The Thunderbolts

Yes, they're awesome.

The month would feature the release of the Thunderbolts, with the team's Civil War line up of Norman Osborn, Moonstone, Bullseye, Penance, Radioactive Man, Songbird, Swordsman and Venom. This means, basically, that my Playable Villains What-If wouldn't be a What-If anymore! :P

And the Runaways...

Yeah, they're pretty awesome too.
The month would also feature Nico Minoru Karolina Dean, Molly Hayes, Chase Stein, Alex Wilder, Gertrude Yorkes and even Old Lace, (who, by the way, would be totally awesome to play as).

Ragnarok

If the month also featured the release of Ragnarok, you'd be able to play as Thor's clone! :D
(Yes, I know he's technically a villain. So is Iron Patriot).

Namor

SHSO has needed to release Prince Namor for a long, long time, and since he appears in Civil War, it would be a good time to do it! :D

Vision II


Okay, okay. Vision II looks exactly the same as Vision. But maybe he could be a villain in a mission!

A Crossbones Mission



Yeah, Crossbones! Crossbones is one of the lesser known villains and his biggest moment comes in Civil War. He must have his very own mission... or else!

The New Warriors



Yup, these guys messed up everything. But you have to admit playing as them would be awesome! You'd get to play as Night Thrasher, Speedball, Namorita, and Microbe! :D

Well, that pretty much explains the poll, guys! :D

Also, the new layout is on it's way...

Iron Man MKII Release


Well it's another long week and finally we get to see Iron Man MKII! I can tell I'm going to have fun leveling up this hero, because from what I've seen, he's awesome. Let's break down the numbers!

EXPLORATION


Iron Man's exploration isn't that impressive, a standard one jump flying set up.
His first power emote is short and simple, but it could be less like Avengers Ironman.
I give it a 3.5/5. Hey, at least he flies!

FIGHTING


Since his looks are based directly off Avengers Iron Man, I expected them to have the same attacks. WRONG. Cool new attacks, with a few short blasts and a neat powered finish, with a well ranged, powerful Hero Up.
I give his FIGHTING a 4.9/5!

COOL FACTOR


He. Is. Iron Man! Dun dun dun dun dun DUN DUN DUN. But seriously, yes he's a repaint of Avengers Ironman. But Avengers Ironman is cool enough for four repaints. So, yeah. 'Nuff said.
I would have liked to see something slightly different, like a new gun mod or something to distinguish the model from the Avengers Ironman model.
I give his COOL FACTOR a 4.8/5!

---

To finish, I'd just like to note for a second that I have all the Ironman characters. I'm not really sure how it happened, but it's pretty neat. Now to max all these heroes, yikes!
