    Op you act as if you never watched  porn or objectified a woman all you r life.

    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.

     

     

    What ar eyou taling about.... You can even see Oola's boob in Star Wars. Google it.....

    Because guys like girls in panties.  Fantasy game is fantasy game.

    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?

  • IcewhiteIcewhite Elmhurst, ILPosts: 6,403Member

    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.

    It's just clothing. Something to wear that shows off your legs while you slaughter hundreds of living beings with your chosen weapon in your regular spree of mass murder.

    Who cares?

    If anyone really finds anyone showing their legs off reason to spew I can only imagine how they manage to go out in hot weather.

    :pulls collar chain:  No no, that wasn't revealing anything about Lucas at all.

    Still, dayum I want to create RuPaul the Bounty Hunter!  C'mon designers, help me out!

     

    Is any of this more inherently silly and money-grubbing than Pandas, when you get right down to it?

    Also, as someone pointed out.. wouldn't it be worse if characters were running around with NO panties?

    The world of Hyboria has always been about sex and viloence.

    I guess you haven't read any books or seen any of the movies only played the MMO.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    Every good bikini needs nice panties, everybody knows this.  

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    That's not a bikini.  That's a diaper, for those oh shit moments.  In a galaxy far far away, stuff happens.
