Yes, I tried Hellgate: London. It was fun for a few days, if repetitive. I hoped for so much more. So did Flagship Studios, which closed its doors permanently about four months ago. Today Cryptic studios, maker of Champions Online, announced that Flagship’s co-founder Bill Roper will be joining Cryptic as Design Director. Roper will focus on MMOs, which, given his pre-Hellgate pedigree as the former Director of Blizzard Entertaiment, seems to be an excellent fit.
