A new patch will give you some cool enhancements for your City of Heroes account.

The "flashback" ability will allow you to go back in time and "participate in exciting events from the history of Paragon City and the Rogue Isles. Heroes and villains can also use this feature to play or replay hundreds of missions from earlier in the game," according to Matt Miller, lead developer for both City of Heroes and City of Villains.

The exciting prospect of Star Trek Online is now over. The developer of the game, Perpetual Entertainment, was recently purchased, and the new owners want to take the game in a new direction. That direction? Casual.

Now, do you know any Trek fans that are casual fans? Not I. Therefore, can you imagine a successful casual Trek game? I'll guess it's the same answer.

Unfortunately, most of the people working on the game have quit because they can see the stupidity. Oh well.
