CITY OF HEROES NOW FOR PC AND MAC

ITEM! Wowsir! The apple of my computer eye — my adopted great-grandson Irving Forbush III — just brought this game to my octogenarian attention. Though your ol’ Uncle Stanley has never played one of these Marvelously Majestic Online Role-playing Games before, even I have to admit that NCsoft’s City of Heroes is a fantastic game. Read all about it here. And now apparently it’s available on both PC and Mac! That means that Yours Truly can play it at the POW! offices on my Dell, or on the road using the Macbook Pro that Honest Irv has been jamming down my throat these past few months. So if you’re a City of Heroes player and see Excelsior-Man go flying by in his pressed black slacks, prescription shades and windbreaker, be sure and wave! Meantime, here’s an online commercial announcing the new Mac version that’s a razor-sharp parody of Apple’s famous “I’m a PC, and I’m a Mac” commercials. Now why hasn’t anyone else ever thought of that before? 


Excelsior!
