More Zu Online

Surprisingly, Zu Online is currently my favorite game. I suspect this will not last longer than till level 60, when the newbie protection runs out. Even then, you can set a PvE flag that will cause people in your own faction to lose honor if they attack you, but I suspect the level-appropriate quests and mobs will be in zones where the two other factions also roam. We shall see. Or perhaps not, since I tend to get interested in new things pretty quickly. (Sims 2 Apartment Life, the final expansion pack, is due in less than two weeks. Spore should be up next month.)

The unique thing (apart from the distinctive oriental graphics) is the automatic travel. Rather than merely marking a quest goal on the map and in a compass, the game calculates the route and your character runs or flies there on its own. I can use the time to sort through my inventory or even take a quick bathroom break (at least as long as I stay in a zone where I'm not attacked). How I wish we had this in City of Heroes! The closest you come is if you're flying from one end of the zone to the other. Unsurprisingly, flight is my favorite travel power.
