OP  11/08/12 4:13:11 PM#1

I was looking over Duffy’s site HERE regarding the F2P shop items and prices and stumbled on the bikini panties they are selling. Is this for real. I mean really? I never thought their cash grab would come to this... this quickly.

 

I know they want to make money but is this the way to go about it? STO has Orion Slave girls and didn’t go this far. I appreciate a fine female figure and all but, come on man! Where is the line? It's a Star Wars RPG game not a sex on the beach simulation.

 

Here is a screen shot of one pair you can get:

 

 

Is this the best they can come up with to cash in rather than actual new content to buy? I am not a prude but are they going too far to make a dime too easy by cashing in on our worst instincts? There are super hero games with a better dress code man...

 

I like sexy women but I also admire intelligence class and all that too which work together to make a female hero. What happened to the story? Just sell T&A now?

 

Just LOL. I wonder if it'll work? Are we game players that easy to milk for a few dollars? Or do "we" have any class?

 

LOL. I never thought I'd be posting this... O.o

Not sure, but if they got a patent on that design they could make a fortune.  Good mixture of cloth and metal... or is that leather?

 

The other angles:

 

 

 

It comes in other colors too... See-through too?

Well, if you can't get them via being a good game, use cheap sex appeal...

There's gonna be a controversy over this isn't there?

This is nothing new. Age of Conan has stuff like this for a long time.

While they still haven't added chat bubbles or the ability to sit in chairs, Bioware has now added some new options to a certain segment of the role playing population.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

It looks like they are taking the TERA approach.

Next thing you know they will introduce a species that consists of prepubescent little girls.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

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.

A: A similar style have been in the game from day one

 

B: Google Twilek dancer (but for the love of god leave the safe search filter on)

 

C: Jabbas Palace... nuff said

 

But yes it is there because sex sells... Just like underwear ads and boothbabes. Nothing new under the sun.

 

 

Edit: Oh and if we are talkiing about female toons in bikini dancing... I think SWG have this game beaten by a mile and a memory.

I hope you are being sarcastic.  Chat bubbles?  Sitting in chairs?  There are way more important things they need to work on before these two things and no, bikini under-Roos ain't one of those things either.  

Chat bubbles /shudders.

I hope not. Their track record in that department is already bad.

c'mon people, it's not like this is a Disney game!

 

(p.s. also, the fact that you go around mass-murdering people is ok, but it's the PANTIES that are somehow sending the wrong message? lol.)

Actually the full set does not look like that, only if you are using different top. Top adds the... sort of skirt

 

Edit. it's actually very similar to what you can get from security vendor on imperial side

This, they already have 2 armor sets like that. Slave armor in a Star wars game is pretty much a must.

This makes me wonder why no one gave them a picture of a human female of the approximate age to assist them. Overall I liked the characters in SWTOR as rendered, but the children looked freaking lame.
