That's just a little montage of me testing out the new big potion, which you can get by using the code "bignsmall".
One warning: so far I've been unable to enter buildings through doors while using the "big" goodie. But it sure is awesome to ride around as a giant Ghost Rider, and just imagine what would happen if you used it on Giant-Man!
Some info: You CAN switch heroes and stay big once you use the potion.
I haven't yet used the small potion, I'm saving that for a special occasion. ;)

The latest mission is "Wen-Di-Go Away", and I finally got into the game, so now I can review it!
Wen-Di-Go Away introduces one sort of new mechanic into SHSO's missions: by clicking on tikies you can stun all the enemies on the screen, and deal them a small amount of damage. This is probably more useful if you're playing it with friends then if you're soloing. Now I know it's not an entirely new mechanic-- there have been enemy stunning gadgets before, like in a Skrull mission, (can't remember which one), and of course in Ock it to Me. But you have to admit that there never has been an enemy stunning tiki before! Aside from the tikies there wasn't much else that we haven't seen before.. and what little there was is discussed next section!
Overall, I rate the STAGE GAMEPLAY a 3.1 out of 5. It's fun, but for the most part it doesn't introduce anything new.
The new mission features one new set of enemies: the wendigos! The wendigos were a fresh take on enemies, similar to Moloids, at least size-wise. The wendigos also could summon ghostly versions of Loki, (not the Avengers Loki, though), and Enchantress. Some frost giants snuck in too.
Overall, I rate the ENEMIES a 3.7 out of 5. It's cool that there are new enemies, but they reused some old ones too.
THE BOSS FIGHT
The boss of this mission is the wendigo himself! Wait-- weren't we fighting wendigos the entire mission? Ah, but this is a BIGGER wendigo! This large wendigo packs quite a punch-- I got K.O.ed as Avengers Hulk and that almost never happens. However, at the press of a button conveniently located on the boss stage, you can summon Indestructible Hulk, who'll distract the wendigo for a bit while you go grab health. Luckily, this new mechanic doesn't feel too weird, and the fight goes the usual way otherwise.
I rate THE BOSS FIGHT a 3 out of 5! It brings in one new thing while keeping a lot of old things.
Will I go on this mission again? Sure! It's a new Asgard mission, it's fairly short on a powerful hero, and there are some new enemies.
Adding up all my scores for an average proclaims Wen-Di-Go Away is a 3.2 out of 5!
Well, aside from this mission, there's other news as well! The blog SHSO Team Awesome posted a post with exclusive pictures of, wait for it... GOLIATH! And they gave away a free code, which I can verify definitely works. So for all that and more, click this link to see SHSO Team Awesome's post.
Until next time.

Today, after some difficulty, (my computer is very old), I managed to snap a picture of these new items in the store!
First there's a new mission, which comes with a crisis edition, but that's unfortunately Agents-Only. The normal version is for free players however, so I got that one after spending some time on the wheel. I tried to play it but my computer froze. Sigh.
But now there's also Sasquatch! Yet another 900 gold hero, though.
But if you purchased a membership, or can afford it, I'd probably get the new hero, seeing as he looks like a strong fighter. :) Also, there are a lot of heroes on sale, so getting into the game is definitely worth it right now. :D
PS: I'm finishing up Superman as I write this!

Well, eleven people voted and now it's been decided: Darkseid will be the villain in my upcoming Justice League What-If!
Also, Thor's on sale! I don't have "Classic Thor" or "Thor", but I can recommend Avengers Thor. See my review of him here if you're still undecided.
Anyway, that's all the news I could find to talk about today, so I'll get to work on the What-If!

The results are in! Look for these six heroes in my next What-If:
Green Arrow (CW Version)
So, while I'm sorry Martian Manhunter can't be in this, I'm even more sorry for poor ol' Doctor Fate. Guess the Doctor's gone down in popularity these days. :(
Well, there you have it: the hero roster for my next What-If! But what about villains? Vote on the new poll in the sidebar, and the winning villain will be featured alongside the heroes.
