    I was sure the Jedi game must have character customisation precisely because the main guy in all the thumbnails looks so bland. Dude has major Default Face.

    The other modes were a little too unfocused so I started a Franchise in Planet Zoo. My zoo has been open for over a year and turned a profit so I'm off to a good start. The animal selection has been pretty rough for a starting zoo, but that basically just means I'm not going to get the coolest animals for a while. I did start off with some Komodo Dragons so that's a nice focal point to the zoo entrance.

    I like that there is a community goal to work for as well as the short term goals for my zoo in particular. The current weeks is already done, but I'm hoping I can get my Komodo dragons to procreate, but their last mating was unfruitful.

    One of the guides I started watching a while ago was talking about how you're going to fail a bunch in franchise mode with bankrupt zoos, but I think that might be because they're all crazy people who make insanely detailed exhibits.

    Jedi Survivor seems to be running fine on PS5 for me outside of some slowdown in a couple more explodey cutscenes

    My only gripe is that I wish parries had a bit more of a distinctive noise to them ala Sekiro, because I'm sometimes kinda losing the flow of fights when I'm dueling tougher enemies

    I don’t really get bland from the Jedi survivor guy, I mean for a white guy he’s kind of ginger and pale and skinny, which isn’t your usual look for males in action games, at least not traditionally

    Maybe Gordon freeman is the last one I can think of off the top of my head

    I wonder if anyone ever tells Cameron Monaghan he has a default face when they meet him.

    He's a generically handsome white dude. I guess different hair colour is a kind of diversity.

    FWIW I’m with you Smof, that dude is of the same stock as any other twenty something white dude who stars in movies and we can’t keep pretending otherwise

    not sure if Breathedge just over-stayed its welcome or if it's suddenly become interesting
    the second chapter is a fairly involved process that culminates in access to a working shuttle, but which felt like it was trending towards the end of the game.

    and now there's space combat sequences and you're limited to on-foot exploration of mostly intact vessels.

    I'm not opposed to either of those things, and I wasn't really feeling the base-building aspect anyway: unlike Subnautica, you can't tear down a base for the same resources that went in (a bizarre choice imo). Having a mobile home just kinda raises the question of why the base-building is in the game at all. You spend chapter 2 learning all the recipes for building structures, and then immediately a) lose access to the one(s) you've built (if any) and b) can't build more for what seems likely to be several hours.

    He's the Joker, though. No one that looks like the Joker could be generic~!

    Only other redhead dude thats coming to mind is Atreus from God of War, there HAS to be someone else but I've got nothing, like I'm sure there's probably some dudes from fighting games that are redheads

    Cameroon Montague has a good face tho, even if it is a plain guy face

    I think he's cute, and I generally don't use "cute" when describing boys, but if I was at a little girl sleepover I'd tell them I had a crush on him.

    edit: like, yeah it'd be cooler to not be White Guy variant 4, but as long as a twunk's around

    I undestand folks describing Cameron Monaghan as looking default and generic.

    But as someone who primarily knows him from Gotham, he's got a pretty distinct look when you let him go full ham.

    There are some cool ass droids and aliens in Jedi Survivor. There is one of those dumb ass armless slug things, IE the best thing from Rise of the Skywalker. It has an eyepatch! There is a nude frog dude running around wearing only a blaster holster! There is a cool robot bartender that has a little mustache! This is what I want in a Star Wars game!

    Yeah seeing the hair and beard options is legit what pushed me over the edge from "wait for a sale" to "guess I need to clear 200 gigs of hard drive space now".

    Don't forget the frog dude sounds exactly like Alpha from Power Rangers to the point I'm nearly convinced it is.

    All this talk about how the Jedi guy has a generic white dude face has me thinking about my own generic white guy face. Just ugly enough that I have no appeal, but not ugly enough to be interesting.

    And yet I still make characters that look like me when given the option in a videogame, those poor bastards

    I just think it is nice to play as a red haired protagonist. We don't have a lot of that.

    I would have preferred anything other than a white male, but it's not a swole, roided up dude with a crew cut (unless you want the crew cut), so some progress from the 2000s.

    What is weird to me is in the live-action trailer he looks less generic than he did in the game.

    one of the initial famous people surrounding vr development, his tech/company was bought by facebook. Once the purchase happened, it became clear that he was an alt right chud and was correctly called out about it, became an embarrassment to facebook, and essentially fucked off to obscurity where he now does some sort of military contract work, i assume surrounding vr. So he took offense to being called a right wing weirdo and then immediately signed up for work with the US military, lol.

    Nothing lifts the old spirits like billionaires picking fights on the internet about that time people told the truth about them so hard they got hounded out of police society. Should happen more often, but it's always nice to be reminded.

    What a delicious self own this thread is.

    It goes from "I'm not mad, I'm have billions of dollars in weapons contracts!" and when called out on how that makes you even shittier, his defense is "I'm not shitty! I actually LOSE money on my weapons contracts!"
