    Paragon Studios has released a new retrospective Q&A featuring comments from City of Heroes developers. The article is part of the company's celebration of the super hero themed MMO's seventh anniversary, and includes developer comments about favorite videos, memorable moments, and launch day experiences.

    What was your favorite COH video?

    Melissa "War Witch" Bianco, Lead Designer:
    "The "Official Trailer." I remember sitting around the lounge back at Jury Court in San Jose with the rest of the CoH team (not a big team at the time, mind you) and watching OUR game as a CG video up on the screen with professional titles, music, and SFX and everything and thinking to myself, 'This is real. This...this is amazing. This is so awesome!!!' I had goosebumps! You can't recreate a moment like that. It was my first job in the industry, my first MMO as a dev, and it was the first promo video for the game. I'll never forget it."
