I sure hope Trion put these costumes in the ground and have them never to appear in the west version of the game. If we ever get it that is...

But I guess since most have not played ArcheAge this is all you have to go on, videos that show of bear costumes, and not actual depth of gameplay.

But those who've actually played it know how unimportant this is - let's focus on Korgis in Rift as that is all there is, right?

You do know there are a bazillion other clothing/armor/kite options that are not sloths and bears, right?

Why not judge every MMO by one stupid costume they have - they all have it, but that would be silly, just like it is here.

 

Seems only three of us actually understand this, poor reporting from the OP.

 

Not poor reporting at all. It is simply a video that the AA team put out. It is reported. What I said reflected my own self, my own thoughts about this as a gamer, not as site staff. 

I added this to the end for clarification: 

Ed Note: It is worth pointing out that this is the cash shop update. All things included in the video are optional purchases by players should they choose to do so. Thanks to our forumites for the reminder.

As for the game, well i'm pretty confident that these trivial things will be the last thing on your mind once you log into AA.

The games has a hella lot going for it and if Trion do it right they really do have a smash hit on their hands. I can't blame anyone who hasn't played the game for feeling as they do but they are in for a real shock once they do actually play the game.

Trion would do well to release more info and vids imo.

Ermm perhaps they have a different culture than in the west. Is that ok with you or should they copy the western mmo culture that is doing oh so well.

I was disgusted when I saw this yesterday. I still am.  I'm trying to keep proportion though.

 

Here's the thing.  I've never been fully sold on the game. There are something I really like, the world detail for one. Being able to interact with what seems like all types of objects. Then there are somethings I hate. Questing to level cap being the most hated. 

 

My second tier of hate includes immersion breaking, silly stuff for the sake of.... breaking immersion? Things like Coke vending machines, cars, and bear costumes. 

 

FFS what is this game? Is it fantasy or is the sims? It seems like somewhere only the way, XL lost their way and began trying to make AA all things to all people. At best, their message has lost its why.

I'll take that bet.

Wish there was a way to confirm and collect.

I think I might get that bet too. There is a very very very low chance to try the game since now I am 100% sure that this game will be F2P. So downloading a game which at first I was kinda excited for , and play it a bit is O.K.

But I will surely take the bet , that I will not play this game for more then few times.

Wildstar will be the game I'll be playing. THAT is a game which devs are really listening and are focusing on content and not on stupid-ultra-WTF fluff content.

Eh, the same thing happened to Aion regarding artstyle inclusions. It does change some people's opinion of a game, we all play with different points of importance afterall. As bcbully said I'm more concerned with the linear questing to cap. The game world is absolutly beautiful and is hate to be led by the nose with so much freedom in other areas of the game. Hopefully they'll add more dynamic leveling content.

As far as the costumes... yes they look corny and artstlye breaking but won't effect me at least trying the game.

Oddly, the sloth has peaked my interest in this game.  I had decided to wait until after launch and see what the reviews were but now I am going to look a bit harder at this one.

I dont get all the fuss... This has absolutely nothing to do with the game. Its still the same game, all the PVP, all the farming and sandboxiness. All the castle sieges and glider divebombings and pirate ships.... for craps sake who the eff cares about a bear costume? Every MMO has rediculous over the top costumes and mounts and other hilarious stuff on the cash shop.

 

But hey guess what... if you dont like it, you dont have to buy it.... novel idea I know. I hereby grant you permission to not spend money on over the top fantasy rediculous costumes in the cash shop. There, now dont you all feel better? Can we get back to actual gameplay, mechanics and maybe even how Trion will handle things here for us, like pay models and stuff that actually matters and not waste time on this nonsense?

While I can understand that admist Trion's silence creates a void of information and many are left with drawing their own conclusions. The two quoted posters above speak the truth as this kind of thing is not at all what AA is about. As many have come from extremely shallow themeparks, one could be misled that anything you see in AA videos is something you see everywhere. In reality, AA has more depth than just about any MMO in the last 10 years if ever. The activities you partake in can be truly unique to EVERY individual. There are endless activities to focus on and the world is absolutely gigantic! This means the population is spread out over the entire game world and there are very very few places where players all congregate. So AA isn't like many themeparks where you will see players all hanging out in cities waiting for their dungeon queue to pop while wearing bear costumes. So the players that are into this kind of thing might not be easily found and most certainly wont be seen all the time.

You just have to ask yourself what is most important to you, a truly DEEP game with an incredible feature set that has a high probability to be a game where playtime is measured in years not days or months. Or a game where depth is limited, creativity is discouraged and long term playablitly is limited to days or months.

For all those whom state that they will likely only play AA for days or a month, will find that they have only barely scratched the surface of the game and will end up playing it far, far longer than that. Once you have truly dove into the meat of AA content, it will be very very hard to play themepark driven games thereafter and that includes ESO, Wildstar, and until proven otherwise even EQN.

That is certainly encouraging to someone like myself who wants to play for the long term and likes depth. Are you saying that the videos showing linear quest hub level progression are not indicative to the rest of the level progression? To me this is what themepark is and if AA has a lot of side things to do that's great but is still themepark.

Hopefully this isn't the case as I said before AA looks to have a large beautiful world.

No, the issue is they don't get it.

Which is ok as I suppose they aren't expected to "get it".

Some people don't want to play in a world that has this stuff. They and others can shout "gameplay trumps all!" but that doesn't make it true.

In any case, my interest in this game, as I have mentioned elsewhere, is academic.

In addition, no one knows what Trion is going to include or not include so people saying "this is for the east" have no idea what Trion will consider of value.

I am absolutely saying that, in fact that is one of my biggest pet peeves and that is players coming from themeparks, playing AA like a themepark (which it will let you do). I see countless videos and streams where players are playing AA like a themepark. The reality is, minus early scarecrow quests (completable by level 10) you can avoid questing entirely (as I did) and level to max doing only what you find rewarding. In fact, the most successful players are those whom forget about leveling completely and start building their empire as soon as they step foot into the world. End game starts at around level 10 and there is no need to rush to 50 whatsoever. Do what you enjoy and it will level you and just about everything you do gives xp, heck you can level to 50 on just farming and trading alone if you choose or you can pick endless other activities to do the same.

If you spend all your time questing in AA, your doing it wrong!

Oh come on. The sloth has dance moves. You can stab it in the neck with a set of handle bars and fly it. What possible reason could you have for not wanting to play this game?

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.
