I think I'm tired of movies recreating characters and their backstories because it's just too hard to fit in other details. Like Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being science experiments...not even gonna start about Jarvis and his role...the entirety of Ultron...I mean cmon, creative liberty should only allow so much before you're just hacking away at someone else's idea.

Idk about the rest of you, but that Shazam movie is what I'm looking at right now...

So many questions, so many possibilities.
I want to look forward to that movie, but DC seems to be going for the dark and gritty feel with their movie universe, so I am instead expecting an angst filled movie missing the entire point of Shazam and my money as well. >.>
Exactly, that's why it has my attention. Shazam is such a high powered hero but....he's a kid. It's got possibilities, but it could be ruined too. It has my attention, regardless.

The way I see it, if you're a dude who's 25+ and still a virgin, yeah your peers (of both genders) will probably point and laugh at first, but then they'll make it their own personal quest to get you laid.  It becomes like a Mission Impossible operation.  And even if some quests end in failure, you grow, learn, and bond with your homeboys/girls. 

And I don't think a guy still being a virgin's a bad thing.  It's a good filter to weed out people in your life who aren't worth your time.  If people are going to be bitches and assholes to you about it, then you know to drop them.

My old punk band Kryovax wrote a song about this called "Society's Anomaly"


Za Lyrics:
My friend swore if I hadn't gotten laid by the end of the year, she would do it herself...

That was 7 years ago.

Women suck!

there is is violence, but the major outlets are only showing that.

there is plenty of exposure in other places for people being decent humans in baltimore.

I like the story about Geraldo being made to leave because he's just scoping out fighting and bad stuff, typical fox news. Tell you what, if they blew up his car with him in it, I doubt most anyone would be upset. Hell, it may become the most effective riot ever.

That gif of jake and his cup is a lie. In the next scene he gets the cup back, so it's all for show!

Also, is it bad when you still don't have a stamp on the v card at 29?

Damn Goosey, sorry to hear about you and Hugh. You did seem fond of him way back when.

The more I learn about the story of the show The Flash the more I want to know. This last episode was ridiculous and Harrison Wells is one of my favorite characters.

I keep telling everyone this show is awesome, but they keep shrugging it off. Even the whole plot device this week with Cisco's dream memory of stuff from an altermate timeline was entertaining, though incredibly WTF-y.

Honestlh not too enthusiastic about Gorilla Grodd as full CG in a television show...he already looks really fake, I can only imagine how a fight scene will play out.

Cappel, or whatever his name was in infinite undiscovery. He managed to be the most pathetic character ever for literally 70% of the game, and by that point I couldn't play anymore.

I think Famitsu is ass retarded and much like american media these days, give bogus reviews about things to bring attention to themselves and stay relevant.

Dice idk if I said it earlier, but your take on anime mask face girl was a bajillion times more acceptable (though still horrific). Why aren't you being paid to do this in life?

Honestly, I never heard of anybody talking about a "character creator for clothing"

Which is why you read more than one sentence of a post. Sure, the better term would've been "Character customization" or even "customizable outfits", but the rest of his post made that fairly clear that he was going for that (which I can say for certain now that I'm awake and lucid).

And I don't agree that it has anything to do with "consistancy". If that was the case, why give them the option to wear different armor at all, when it's not going to look different? That's actually not consistant - the menu says they're wearing chain mail, but the character model still shows a shirt and jacket. If they wanted consistancy, they could simply have the characters use "accessories" or "upgrades" or "upgrade slots", where they utilize stat changes without any obvious visual change. Enough games do this that I don't think it'd be all that big a deal, especially if it works with the setting and themes. It could certainly work with Star Ocean, considering the futuristic-ish setting.

Or you could just offer the option to have different outfits and have it consistantly change the look of the character. It'd give some extra incentive for the player to try different equipment, and they wouldn't have to be forced to look at one design the majority of the game. That makes sense. People change their clothes, why would they just keep the same look for god knows how long? Especially if they're supposed to look "fashionable", and especially if the game is telling you they're changing their gear. If the developer doesn't want the kick-ass valkyrie-bitch beating up people in a tutu? Don't give them the option to put her in a tutu - make the equipment character or class specific. Plenty of games do that already, it's not a big deal. In fact, character-centric makes the most sense, because why would a chain mail I found in a dungeon fit both the huge bruiser guy and the skinny hero guy? It makes more sense to have some sort of equipment limit, because it works both stylistically and gameplay-wise, as it acts as a balance mechanism and makes every character unique. It does come with certain problems for the player if equipment isn't spaced out right, but I see no reason why a developer shouldn't balance that out, especially when it's a common aspect of RPGs, anyways.

...I'm beginning to ramble a bit, so I'll wrap this up quick: The only practical reason why more games don't offer character customization is that it would require more effort during development. It's not even that it would be hard, but modeling and testing every single animation with every single piece of equipment would be long and tedious, and could potentially lengthen development time unless the amount of equipment wasn't too huge. Considering the size of modern RPGs, though, having a small amount of equipment, even per-character equipment, just wouldn't cut it. It wouldn't negatively impact the player's experience at all to have the option to dress your characters differently, but it would be a problem if it contributed to a rushed or glitchy game.

Which is why at the very least, sir, you were dead on with your comment :)

I think he just means we want more outfit options like Xenoblade had. And not DLC...

Or maybe I'm wrong, and I'm too tired to actually read properly...
At the very least, your dead on. Customizeable outfits and clothing is awesome. Dlc isn't a terrible idea for it either if it means some variety aside from techno jpop jumpsuits or school girl-esque outfits. One of my bigger dislikes for tales games is the guaranteed inclusion of a swimsuit and a school uniform. Seriously, all I want in a character creator is my own choice in clothing.

Some days I just wanna be the big ass hulk dude wearing a fuzzy robe and bunny slippers. Is that too much to ask?

When are companies gonna realize we just wanna make out our own heroes and heroines. I mean not even the full facial and physical qualities, but just their looks. Customizable outfits and gear always is a huge upsell for me. Yeah, granted, many guys will just make the females bikini clad or nude if possible, but hey...options rock.
