As long as there's pathetic guys out there, there will always be someone profiting off of them, lol.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

EA wanna rape that cash cow for all its worth. With its founding fathers gone, we should really start calling it "The Studio Formerly Known as Bioware" TSFKAB for short.

And what's wrong with earning money? Is it something evil? And here I am first to admit I will be buying stuff from the shop. I support the game and if I like things I will buy it. And sure thing I am going to get this bikini too. My toon will look absolutely awesome in it.

Porn survives by subscribing to the lowest common denominator too and I guess that’s alright if its what the development team feels SWTOR needs to do to stay profitable. You market a product at a target audience. Investing time in selling panties to players for their characters is a cheap cash grab that shows what they think of you, what they think we will buy from them. I don’t know about you but when I am in the mood for that sort of thing I visit with the girl friend or look up a free tube. MMO games I look to for something else...

 

 

Is it right or wrong to sell game undies? I don’t know. But it’s an indicator of where they are going with the game now compared to where they were going.

 

 

 

Hmmm... Seems like they shave in the future per the see through model. Cool... Right? :)

Genetic alterations would be much less painful.  Or new ways to painlessly & permanently remove folicles that nobody in this galaxy knows about .. yet.  Just another thing to love about Star Wars ...

Also apart from these two three sets SWTOR have very unisex armors especially compared to most fantasy games, heck even WoW have the silly "plate with bare midriff for no reason". So if nothing i feel it should get a thumbs up for being so conservative on the slut-o-meter.

 

And again it is not like it is breaking the lore in any way.

Some people just enjoy being in other people's business. Maybe Crazy_Stick is just Tipper Gore's son and he's taking up his mother's mantle.

You made too many assumptions based on how you feel about it rather than what I wrote. What did I say about porn? Appreciating the female form?  And what did I note about being a prude? Pfft... Hypocrite., You just wanted to flame to pretend to be holier than thou yourself based on a snap thoughtless feeling in a  moment.

 

I mean lol dude you want to spend money on digital panties for your toon go right ahead. Your dime, more power to you. I just think it's a hoot Bioware thought they could make money off of their game players by getting into in the digital, orange quality, moddable, pay to win, panty business. Personally, I am LMAO.

 

HEHEHEHE Pay to win panties. Take that power tech!

 

Sure, I think it's a cheap and base way to just cash in on your poor horny needs rather than doing anything to make the game worth playing. I've not objected to it. I've not claimed it right or wrong. But sure, I am making fun of them for having to "go there" with a Lucas now  Disney property to make a profit after claiming they were the WOW Killer... WOW sells sparkle ponies man.

 

Just lol.

This gotta be the worst hyberbole threat i've seen here.

I'm not certain if it is stupidity or ignorance (probably both) running this.


Nar Shaddaa - Social II Slace Girl outfit. (or dancer models)
Due to the laziness of SWTOR DEVs it's the exact same model only different texture.

Don't equip the top, and you got Bikini Panties.
OH NOES IT'S IN SINCE DEC 2011!!!!111

If the OP would have played the game he complains about he would have seen a hundreds of Vettle, Temple, Dorn's - etc running around like that, not to mention thousand of female players avatars.

No you said porn makes profit by catering to lowest common denominator. So you think you are better than rest of us? you never watched porn? so are or are you not part of lowest common denominator porn industry is targetting? not an assumption bud just going along with what youw rote.

And who the hell watches PORN to appreciate  female form? that is the most stupid thing i have ever read. If you just want to celeberate female beauty and sexyness porn is the last place to be. 

And if i was a hypocrite i would make a topic about 'virtual undies' and make a big deal about it. But i am not the OP you are. I think you just wanted to call me a 'hypocrite' to get even or something? just repeating what is aid and throwing it back at me is desperate.

Yeah. because of all the flaws and shortcomings and other problems game is having...focusing on 'undies' is what is needed.

All of us have poor horny needs. You should have your own ways with dealing it. But your generalisation that only poor horny guys would go for this is gross generalisatiion and very narrow mindedness. 

 

Just lol.

So yeah your entire topic about virtual undies is just.. LOL!

Watching the Conan movies , vs watching the Star Wars movies , I'd say it easily fits in the AoC setting.

The Star Wars one ? Not so much.

Of course neither does Huttball  , so not really surprised either.

It was more important for them to have a ball game where Jedi and Sith play than having an actual galatic war between the sides working , so I don't think there is a low that EA/Bioware won't go if they can get a dime out of it.

Firstly, this is the _fourth_ bikini bottom available in the game. The other 3 have existed since launch. There are dozens of other armor pieces in the shop its not that unusual for this to be there.

The slave bikini outfit is without a doubt one of THE most iconic items of clothing in the entire Star Wars movie universe.

Secondly theres a topless chest available for male character models now available in the shop when nothing similar previously existed... why is no one complaining about that?

Pink, it's like red but not quite.

The question is, can you get a pair for a male toon?

Come on now, fair is fair.

The most baffling part is LucasArts agreement allows it?

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
