Which V&V will you play in 2018?

Looking through DriveThruRPG, there are a LOT of Super Hero Games out there. Of course, we're all fans of V&V here, so I figure why not see which rules set you cats prefer.

As much as I LOVE 2nd edition, it is incomplete, and modern players look at it an see an old, crunchy game. I'm not a MHG 3.0 guy (it just didn't click with me). FGU 3rd Ed is still in-work (and I have been assured by the author that it will be an excellent game) - I plan to give it a shot once it is out (just like the rest of us in here).

My "Other" is Big Eyes, Small Mouth 3rd Edition. It's not perfect, but it's less crunchy and more complete than V&V 2nd Ed, or 3.0 MP. It's a decade older than MP, but is cleaner, has a nicer combat system, has a skill system, features some nice character templates, a nice list of "powers" and "Weaknesses", as well as rules for making your own (game-balanced) powers, and it's even in color (if that matters).

James Bishop (et al...), and I really don't know.

I have not seen anything, and since I am no longer associated with FGU, I don't think I'll see anything until the final document is released.

You can PM "AlabasterKnight", that is James' handle in this forum.
Last time he was online here was back on 04-Oct-2017, but he may get e-mail notifications when he receives a PM.
