Hey all, we scored another article on OnRPG, this time with a link to our Unity Rally this weekend!  We've got a friend there!  :)

Edit:   :o  I've been scooped by Eabrace on my own press release?  Dude, that's awesome.  ;)

I found something from the german press. Even when City of Heroes wasn't much popular here there are still news about it, I'm surprised.  :o

Oh... of course you can't understand a single word there but... Nothing new so far we didn't already know. Fans want to save the game and the Paragon Studios are talking with investors, but Community Manager Andy Belford also said that there is no rescue in sight so far.

Ok, I rated it, but saw no confirmation it was received. Is that normal?

The guy who wrote the Gamerzine article posted in the comments to say their website would do all they could to support us, which is awesome. I'm not sure if anyone noticed that.

I added the Ten Ton Hammer link, but one of our project coordinators helped compile a MUCH bigger list.  Seriously, my mind is blown.  44 blogs and news sites so far (and counting!) specifically on our efforts to save City of Heroes.  I've got two high priority fish to fry right now, but this is third on my list.  When Paragon Studios talked to NCsoft, I want them to have this list as reference to go in and say, "Look!  You need to turn this publicity in your favor!"  I've also e-mailed some contacts within NCsoft that I think will be useful and helpful to our cause with this information, I really hope that they see and understand the traction we're getting here.

In the meantime, like always, Go!  Hunt!  Spred wordz!  :)

It's "sort of" a personal blog for a bunch of folks, but they talk about everything that a standard game site talks about, just in smaller scale. Here's one of the blogger's personal story and plea:

Bob Dole!! Bob Dole. Bob Dole! Bob Dole. Bob Dole. Bob Dole... Bob Dole... Bob... Dole...... Bob...

I'm honestly not sure how they can ignore it at this point.  It seems to me that the entire MMO gaming blogosphere is aware of what's going on and what's being done about it.  Which is awesome.  We keep it up and we'll be in mainstream media soon.

The really amusing part about this one?  All of a sudden this is being re-tweeted by the Occupy Movement.  (Yeah, the same ones who were camped out on Wall Street.)

I can't even keep up with how fast we're getting coverage.  I think we'll be hitting the mainstream soon enough.

Seriously?  Do they think Paragon City is a real place or something?
Still, more words in the faces of the general everyone can't really hurt.
