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.

Oh, so you don't need to buy the disk? I was actually going to do that on Monday. I know there's only one subscription fee for both but I thought I still had to buy CoV to play it.

actually, you will need to still pay for the game whether or not you use the discs. You are buying the code key I guess.

The person who told me i didnt need to buy the game wasnt correct.

I personally would still buy it so you can have the hard copy version *just* in case.

But dont take my word for it. Look around at the city of villains website to see if you can find a better answer before going out and buying it.
