  • By Cho Mu-hyunA US novelist slams NCsoft for shutting  City of Heroes
  • I think canceling a game that is making a profit, along with destroying jobs and an online community, is entirely unethical.
  • This is not so much a game as a huge town of 100,000 people who have intersecting interests and neighborhoods, and who play together and care deeply about their town
