Fans got their first hands-on experience of superhero MMO Champions Online at Gen-Con Indy last week, and some in-game footage has made its way online (see video below). Running around in tights and blasting bad guys with a variety of nifty superpowers looks fun, but why are all the heroes stuck in a Yul Brynner-less Westworld?This footage was taken with someone's video camera, so it's obviously not perfect, but it is the only gameplay footage available of Champions Online. Cryptic has indicated that this demo represents a game still in development - the UI in particular is a work in progress. The robot cowboys are pretty cool, though. They totally ripped off Wonder Woman's golden lasso. Maybe they're riding invisible horses?
