Wrapping up Blueside and the heros, I played more blasters than any other type.
It's hard to choose a favorite type as I played them all but my main for the entire game was The Amazing Aluminum Man and he was an Energy/Electric blaster so I'll go with that. More on him here.
It was almost a year ago that City of Heroes was closed for no good reason and we still find ourselves saying "that would make a good city of heroes character" when we run across a particularly fun idea. It will be a long time before it drops out of our day to day thoughts.
