Hey, I know my blog isn't the most traffic heavy blog on the internet. Heck I don't even know how many parents of Special Needs kids read this. But, I'm gonna challenge you. We are warriors for our kids. If you play City of Heroes/Villains with your special needs kids, SPEAK OUT. Blog about it, share it with your blogsphere. Howl it far and wide how NCsoft is taking away one of your most key tools out of your toolbox!
We all know how challenging it is to raise kids that have needs that are out of the ordinary. I have a daughter who has Autism. We know that every tool is a treasure in the box when we find one that actually WORKS to help our kids be...KIDS.
City of Heroes and Villains gives these kids who have enough challenges to begin with, be kids. They allow them to be heroes! Villains (Without getting punished! hehe) Or just plain free to do whatever they imagine! These kids are housebound due to severe allergies, or other form of challenges, so they have no real friends.
Humans are social creatures, kids even more so. This game gives these kids such a chance they never would have had otherwise.
NCsoft is taking away something very unique, from kids with special needs. We need their parents, to really rattle some cages. Take a game from a bunch of paying adults...no one bats an eye. Take something from kids that have challenges, OH you got a nasty PR mess on your hands. So please...please Blog, share your blog with TonyV and Victoria Vitrix over on The Titan Forums Or on TonyV's twitter https://twitter.com/thetitannetwork Tweet you name it.
