    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

     

    (Edited to fight the typo monster that follows me around.)

    I'm sure there are female gamers out there, and Gaymers, who would like to see the male version to show off a guy's package. 

     

    No?  Oh, that's right.  We live in a society where its ok to sexualize and sell women's anatomy.

     

    I don't play the game, but I'm not really sure if I approve.  Not because I'm a prude, but because of why they did it.  I think its cheap.

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

    See my character

    imageimage

    The top with the flap isn't going to be worth as much as the bottoms in the GTN :P

     

    Making yet another set "female" only seems like gender discrimination.

    Well... how about this one...

    That's not for players though is it?  It's shown on Quinn

    I can tolerate this as long as 90% of the female toons in the fleet center aren't running around with no pants.  

     

    That probably means I won't be able to tolerate it at all :(

    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.
