    No.

    Then don't play, I guess. Nothing is going to change the super-asian design asthetic.

    Maybe I'll do that.

    I mean, I like pixelated boobs and such, but somehow it just feels a bit trashy. I don't really want to keep knocking the game though so I will leave it there.

    Maybe they will change the armors for a western audience as some people suggested.

    Elin are the only race undergoing any changes from what I've heard because of the US's insanity relating to such things even if they aren't related at all. It's still unknown what exactly they are going to do to them.

    Actually on the official forums one of the devs specifically said they're going to stick them in leggings. I assume thats as far as they plan to go.

    I have seen the last two iterations of concept images and I can tell you that the changes to the Elin outfits are WAY more minor than that silly Photoshop makes them out to be. In fact, in the last iteration I saw I'd be willing to wager most people won't even notice a difference unless the armor sets are literally side by side.

    I went digging around.

    Since nothing has really been posted here I guess this would relevent as well, it's in German but has subs.

    Been watching for this game for so long, kinda starts to feel like it's never going to come out. I'm honestly sorta looking forward to this even more than SW:TOR merely due to the promise of action-based combat rather than the WoW-style that has basically become the standard.

    As to the crazy female armor, I really couldn't care less... I prefer to just embrace the crazy, as long as I'm enjoying the gameplay and having a blast, nothing else really matters. In fact, I'll dress my chicky in the most outrageous and skimpiest of bikini armors. :D

  • ghost_master2000ghost_master2000 Registered User regular
    Nice vids. I'm kinda burned out on this game until it comes out though. I shouldn't learn about games until a couple months before they come out or I lose interest.

    I don't even need to watch that video to know that it's horrible.

    The video I mean, not the game.

    I watched part of the video this morning before I had to go to work, and what I saw was pretty damn amusing.

    Can't wait to see the rest of it tonight.

    He makes a point to be inflammatory in a lot of his videos, and has gone so far as to join the forums just to troll people over his content. He has a lot of viewers, but he's basically a glorified troll. I've never seen him have anything insightful to say.

  • chocoboliciouschocobolicious Registered User regular
    I've only seen a couple of his videos where he seems to be acting intentionally dense about the controls or concept of the game he's playing. Of course, he could have just been that clueless but I want to doubt that. He's no Yahtzee though.

    I've never heard of this guy before so had no opinion going in, but I thought he was fairly funny and obviously showed great enthusiasm for the game.

    Now I really want to play it though. :(

    I found the video amusing as well.

    I can't believe we have to wait until Spring of 2012 for release. :(

    Have they released any information on exactly how they're censoring the Elins for us poor sheltered Americans?

    Edit: That's a no, and apparently a common question, sorry. Kinda odd that they're not releasing any information about it at all. I'm more interested in a Castanic Slayer, myself. ;)

    TERA is going to combat Gold Sellers by using a page out of EVE Online's playbook.

    Chronoscrolls.

    http://www.tera-online.com/content/introducing-chronoscrolls

    TL:DR

    It's like PLEX from EVE. People buy a Chronoscroll and can then sell it in game to another player for in game gold.

    Sound to me it's more like the publisher getting into the selling gold business.

    No actually it sounds like PLEX from EVE Online.

    1 Chronoscroll = 1 month of playtime.

    I would worry that them making buying gold a legitimate and safe thing would wildly inflate prices.

    It's a good plan, honestly. The system works out generally. It helps both people who want gold faster and people who can't easily afford a month to month. Honestly more MMOs should go this route.

    Someone still has to make the gold and normal players aren't as good at it as gold farming cells. The RMT groups wont have a very good profit margin though, especially because as stated they don't really need the game time and no one will pay them real money directly if they can just go through official sources like this. it's a good move.

    The PLEX market model is a good move. The gold will get farmed, whether you like it as a game developer or not. Officially sanctioning a price (and thus undercutting the gold-farmer's standard practice of wildly inflating the market price for everything) will really help to ensure your game is still playable for casuals a year down the pipe.

    ...and when you are done with that; take a folding
    chair to Creation and then suplex the Void.

    Looks like the changes weren't that much at all. (Still subject to change according to a CM)

    This needs to come out sooner.

    The fact that this is somehow an issue still, frankly, surprises me. Oh well, looking forward to this game so much. What videos I have seen look like a lot of fun.
