BioWare releases Jedi armor progression video {Massively}

BioWare releases Jedi armor progression video {Massively}

Mar 25th 2011 3:54PM @(Unverified)
Obi-wan's attire in episode IV is nearly identical to how we see Qui-Gon Jin and the young Obi-Wan dressed in the very opening scene of Episode I. In addition, any of the scenes featuring the interior of the Jedi Council and their headquarters will reveal that their dress is fairly standard for the entire order. Slight variations in colors are seen, but for the most part you can see all the Jedi in the films have a "uniform". Regarding Luke's appearance in Episode VI: I always assumed it was a combination of a) being "on his own" with regards to something as communal as a uniform, and b) the all black motif being something Lucas' threw in to say "hey, he could end up the same as Vader...".

I thought the Jedi were sporting the ballistic body armor in all of those cartoons. I guess I'm referring to the later, CGI style series. They end up looking like a stormtrooper who took his helmet off and donned a bathrobe...

It's funny, but I feel the EXACT opposite of this. I HATE the jedi-in-body-armor look. Maybe I'm a purist based on the films, or maybe it's my own internal image of a Jedi, but I always thought the idea was that they are monk-like. Simple robes and a tunic and such.
I'm a huge fan of the franchise, and MMOs, but the aesthetic/art direction I see the gameplay footage has enough resemblance to the CN Clone Wars style that the gameplay is going to have to be stellar for me to get past it.

Blizzard COO: We hope Titan will still be growing in 20 years {Massively}

Ditto, to the letter.

Blood Sport: PvP keybindings -- ESDF and roaming index finger variants {WoW}

Mar 9th 2011 9:40AM This might be slightly (un)related, but when you mentioned the small "ridge" on the F key I thought I would share something that I myself have done for years. In order to facilitate a more tactile approach for my hand to wander a bit to different keybinds I like to add what is essentially more of those same ridges to various keys. Call it braille if you like. This of course involves permanently modifying your keyboard, so if you're into keeping your hardware absolutely pristine, you might not like this.
I apply a small drop of super glue on the keys I want to use as my "guide keys". Allow it dry completely of course, and voila. You have guide dots, or ridges, or braille, or whatever you want to call them. I haven't had to look at my left hand to grab a keybind in years. My hand always knows where it is thanks to these tiny yet vastly helpful little guide dots.

And people in love with World of Warcraft will look for any excuse to support Blizzard's design directions unconditionally.

Exclusive: Mythos displays Lamento armor sets {Massively}

Feb 22nd 2011 2:50PM I blame WoW for the absolutely absurdly ridiculous looking shoulder pads.
Most, if not all, of the shoulder pads in WoW are just retarded looking, and here's proof that another art team is following that lead.

I think I'm secretly hoping that when the WoW movie actually hits all the actors will be walking round with these gargantuan, comically oversized shoulder pads on for the entire film. Both because it will look like the game, and it's the sort of thing Sam Raimi could get away with somehow...

The Queue: I confess, I like Katy Perry {WoW}

It's truly a sad day when the popular opinion is that what she is doing is "singing". Her vocal is so pitch-corrected and affected with digital polish it hardly resembles what a human voice is capable of acoustically producing.

TLDR: No one actually sounds like that in real life.
