OP  7/23/12 10:19:22 AM#1

So I noticed the item shop has items that are clearly 'for fun' but really look like they'd belong much more in The Secret World setting than in Guild Wars 2.

Some of these were 'Aviator Sunglasses' and 'Boxing Gloves'.

 

Does this sort of stuff break immersion for you or is it cool? 

 

Personally, I think the items could be more thematically fitting... instead of 'Aviators', there could be some Engineer style goggles or something.  It's a little odd to see things that don't quite fit in the world.

 

It feels like it goes against the very immersive world that people have obviously spent a LOT of time and effort developing.

 

Thoughts?

Random 'funny' item shop items...

It is annoying. But there isnt much they can put in the shop if they dont have pay 2 win items. So i understand why.

Its fine by me, I try not to let the choices of others make or break my gaming experiences.  Your ideas of deeply immersive items may completely ruin another's experiences.  

To each their own.

I think the best option here is a toggle to completely disable the viewing of these items if you choose and default everyone to standard town clothing.

I find items like that rather dumb but whatever floats people's boats. Can't say it really effects me outside of how silly I think it looks so selected "Don't care".

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I have to disagree there - there are a LOT of great cosmetic items they can get in there especially given the incredibly talented art team they have at their disposal.  There's no need to create such uninspired items like 'Aviators' and 'boxing gloves' when they clearly have very creative people on staff who could come up with some truly awesome 'fluff' content.

I find these things amusing in most games. Sometimes it's the out of place nature of such things that make them more laughable/entertaining. Don't take it too seriously.

I was actually having my credit card ready and hoping for some Attires to hide my ridiculous starter gear.

No luck, unfortunately. :(

I'm not really convinced of the "incredibly talented" part. Most faces and hair styles didn't look very inspired, they 'd better look at TERA for some inspiration. And no, I don't like Tera's manga clothes but the faces and hairstyles are really top notch.

We were all wearing the sun glasses in the final BWE3 event :P And considering the heavy Hunger Games reference in the event, I think we will see a LOT of contemporary influences in Tyria, similar to what WoW was doing, I guess (though I didn't really play that abomination, just heard that it did :P). So Expect Dark Charr Rising capes stuff and what not in the shop.

I don't necessarily like it, but then Tyria is not Middle-earth and this lore is not that important to me to be pissed about such random out-of-place additions. Looks like they will put all the stress on "fun" and less on the "setting" part, keeping it funny and relaxed. Who knows, Maybe that's what it takes to have 10 million casual players?

Then I'd recommend hopping on their forums and letting them know what you'd like to see in hopes they put them in.  You call these items uninspired but I'm sure to someone they're exactly what they want.

I'd like a top hat and pipe for my warrior to wage bloody war in because the absurdity of it is interesting to me, I have a feeling we'd be at a disagreement about that, but I'd buy it.

No need to spoil other peoples fun by being a buzz kill. You do you and don't worry about whether or not a few other people like to look silly every once in a while.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I would simply 'like' this if I could.

There is so much they could sell that would be in lore. I personally hate seeing others in my play space in aviators and bermudas in such a high fantasy setting.

But... they want to break the Asian market with the game and crap like sunglasses etc are what they expect over there. Look at Aion's shop. It will be Miss A dance routines soon ;)

We got giant flying stone cubes and computers and cars and tanks, can't say I find sunglasses and boxing gloves particularly immersion breaking unless you run around fighting in said boxing gloves

Aviator, in this context, is a reference to the shape of the lens on a pair of sunglasses. Using that term so that buyers can make an informed decision about a purchase is perfectly reasonable. Remember its not the character buying the item, its the player.

 

The tech level in GW2 includes elements from eras in our own history well after the invention of boxing gloves and sunglasses. Why are automated autofire turrets, robots, rifles with a rate of fire equivalent to a modern Assault weapon, and so on all appropriate...but  dark lensed spectacles are not ?

When all has been said and done, more will have been said than done.

I don't like the items, I think they look out of place and silly really...

 

Then I watched a 8 ft tall Norn wearing nothing but a pink chainmail kilt hopping in circles around a guy shapeshifted into a red moa, while a human shrunk himself to 2 feet tall and tried to hump a Charr's leg.

 

So....not even sure I notice the fluff items anymore?

Not too difficult to imagine they might figure out a way to add "tinted lenses" to that to make sunglasses after 250 years. One can argue abotu how it "fits" into the game, but you can't claim that they haven't existed in some form before hand. Besides, from what my understanding is you'll only ever really see it out of combat. I'd just say ignore it, they can't make the item shop appeal to every single person, otherwise they'd have nothing to sell.

I haven't seen any pictures of the offending items in question though, so who knows maybe its all some horrible mess of Cthulhu-esque ugly!

I really don't care. It will not break my experience. I probably won't buy any of the stuff but seeing how serious some people (lore/immersion purists?) are I can just see a shitstorm coming with events :)

We all got a lot of different hats in GW from major events right from the very first halloween pumpkin crown.

I remember a fun - playerrun - event in LA following the xmas event... 80+ ppl running in a "Rudolph train" all wearing reindeer horns and chasing one person in a xmas-hat. Terribly simple and tonnes of fun :)

Now please, all you purists, who spent a lot of your free time along with me in Tyria for the past 7 years: Please explain how this ruined your game?

 

We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!

That stuff doesn't really bother me.  I think that GW2 doesn't take itself as seriously as many fans do ;).

Also...GW2 has:

1.  Teleportation gates

2.  Big robots

3.  Huge floating cube cities

4.  Guns

and many more...

But I guess that boxing gloves and sunglasses must have been beyond them lol.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

In the end I suppose whatever makes ArenaNet the money to keep building onto GW2 is good.  I just hope the world doesn't turn into a circus side-show of wacky looking players.
