damn it...I'm a moron.
So I completely geeked out and bought City of Villains 15 minutes after my store received the shipment. I knew that I wouldnt be able to play until Monday since I hadnt preordered...but I still wanted to load the game and see if i could play with the character generator.
After screwing with it for 4 hours today, trying to make sure that I had all of the right drivers, making sure all fo my programs have proper updates, blah blah blah, I start posting on forums.
Finally someone tells me that I didnt even need to buy the discs since I already own City of Heroes..I could have just downloaded a patch...
When I installed COV, the installer told me the safest option was to install it in the same folder as COH.
Installing the COV discs corrupted my COH files. I had to uninstall both programs and reinstall COH. After uninstalling, i realize the COH disc isnt next to my desk. After tearing my room apart for close to 2 hours I finally find it. Yesss.
Yay, now I get to wait for 6 hours while all of the patches and updates download. I hate being retarded.
I did all of this for a computer game.... I believe I have outgeeked myself.
