Mar 19th 2012 12:30AM dementron: given the dimorphism in WoW races so far and their acceptance by the player base I'm surprised you keep grinding on that argument.
Mar 19th 2012 12:27AM are you seriously going to tell me you are equating an unhealthy obese person to an athlete on grounds of their BMI? Oh the hypocrisy. The only food for thought is what other way to spin this in ridiculous and illogical ways you could come up with.
as for monroe: http://www.snopes.com/movies/actors/mmdress.asp sorry kiddo, you are wrong. she wasn't a huge size 16.
Mar 18th 2012 11:22PM your self defeating argument is kinda amusing. "They" don't play female dwarves not because their bodyshape lies outside the norm and isn't pretty, but their faces are outside the norm and not pretty? Pot meet kettle.
Either way, they aren't pretty according to the mainstream criteria and get played by only a *very* small fraction of players.
The only question really is why Actizzard is pandering to this tiny niche market again. Is that really the best way to obtain new or returning subscribers at this point vs modelling them closer to http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-16/wakfu-pandawa-female.html ?
Mar 18th 2012 11:11PM just because the baseline in developed countries has shifted in unhealthy ways doesn't mean that panda isn't fat
Mar 18th 2012 11:04PM I would argue that "fat is beautiful" would be the narrow standard with little appeal. Given that the players are human and it is well known where the appeal lies with the masses it follows that this character model will see only niche appeal similar to those unshapely female dwarves.
wait a few hours and you too can see the horror in all it's glory.
Mar 18th 2012 10:26PM anthropomorphic pandas in a fantasy game. I don't see how it follows as a consequence that they must be fat and ugly.
Mar 18th 2012 10:08PM if female pandas look decent after all and not obese as the teaser image implies
Jan 5th 2012 7:59PM archaeology was a major contributor to me dropping WoW
Dec 19th 2011 3:41PM Surnames is ironically the pretty much only thing Final Fantasy 14 got right.
Dec 18th 2011 12:24PM it's quite hilarious really. There was much forum QQ about queues, unverified claims of exploits and max level chars on the first day of early access and pretty much various butthurt over people not getting enough sugar blown up their asses by bioware.
Meanwhile servers are stable, queues manageable and I haven't heard much negative feedback in game.
Seriously, if this is "crashing and burning" I wonder what they'd call games that actually failed.
If anything swtor has the smoothest (pre)launch I've seen so far.
