  • I find it impossible to gauge. Are ATs harder than FFs? Yes. Provided said freeform has a reasonable build and wasn't put together in a really bad way. Estimating difficulty between different ATs? This is situational. Obviously tanky ATs with self-heals have it easier. Some people would say that Inferno is hard. I find it…
  • Yeah, no... You could. Fuzzy features can be painted over. You'll paint over or blur in a higher resolution, you'll get rid of fuzz. You're not stuck on a 256x256 post stamp size or whatever was an old texture size that I can't recall right now. Texture size is something you can change without even touching unwraps. You…
  • This. Kaizerin knows tailor interface very well. Pretty sure that the only limitations left in place are ones that needs to be in place.​​
  • New WoW faces are all terribly generic. They're all nearly the same face with changed eye colors and very subtle tweaks like lipstick color and sometimes very subtle wrinkles which get lost in darker skin shades anyway. Distinct shapes painted on old faces allowed for things like age and ethnicity. Character models were…
  • I don't have a common hate boner on Bay's movies. Ingmar Bergman he's not, but they're watchable popcorn flicks and thankfully he's not "stuck-up-in-his-a**-pretentious-artsy-but-in-reality-can-do-only-hollow-grimderp" Snyder.​​
  • I just ignore grindy temporary events. I prefer grinding at my own pace. If developers want to waste resources at this kind of antiquated JAAG designs it is their game and their right. Nobody really forces me to play through their mistakes.​​
  • Character models are the simple part, though. Time consuming it might be, but not an arcane knowledge by any means. But if you're talking spandex, then one body base could be reskinned ad infinitum.​​
  • The store should not require SCR along with GCR. SCR was reduced to a worthless pile of something and Cryptic should stop at this. Retire it as a broken trap expense for people who are new and don't know better but leave GCR free of association with it. You don't fix content not being appealing after you broke pricing,…
  • I'd have a much warmer opinion about Wastelands 2 if I did not have to deal with glitches or overall bad performance. Considering how average are graphics in this game you'd rather expect it not being a resource hog bigger than Divinity or Fallout 4, lol. Wouldn't use this game to advocate any engine. On a technical level…
  • Yes, tailor was in need of tidying up and a real streamlining for a quite some time.​​
  • Yeah, me too. I find it a rubbish design when events have mobs littered across the entire map and you can run into them while simply patrolling and leveling. Never was found of the Destroid Invasion for same exact reason. Double fail when mobs in question can cancel your travel powers. Overall, the most pointless and…
  • There's hardly "tons of" furry characters in superhero books when compared to number of humanoids. But yeah, CO tights selections is kinda dated and it starts to show that majority of them are from the earliest part of the game life cycle. Still, one more animal head in the costume selection is not a drama. Almost every…
  • I'm not an academic-senior-art-school-style-of nazi. I can cut some slack to anyone as long as they're drawing their things on their own. Not like comic books are a realistic art and they're produced on a tight schedule, so sometimes things end rushed at the expense of quality. Land is, technically, a better artist who did…
  • But Crystal looks kickass in new Inhumans books. And I never really liked this character before. Or disliked. Or cared at all. So at least one ok thing came out of it. I'm still salty at Marvel for making Greg Land an interior artists to one of the two X-Men ongoings. Nothing beats having to drop the book because of an…
  • The Mighty Mid-life Crisis? Clark's middle aged, married, and with a kid right now.​​
  • DCU started soo "well" with BvS that it already changed producers and coordinators for next movies. Which may be, actually, quite needed. Seems like BvS not quite meeting WB expectations may prompt them to keeping lunatics like Snyder in check. Here's me hoping to no more see him unrestrained. It's bad enough that after…
  • It's silly, but it will all turn to be a hoax. It's written precisely to get people to pick this issue. I'm more interested with DC Rebirth atm, though, so... Bendis is writer I learned to dislike. I'm giving this year Marvel event a try, but I'm on alert for stupid ideas. Bendis can write nice scenes and dialogues, but…
  • Event's mostly okay, but NTTG was too much of an annoyance to bother, then it's a bit too grindy and not too much interesting to buy with tokens anyway, so... Skipped it since it was boring anyway. A lot of less annoyance and little less grind next time and I miiight se a reason to attend to.​​
  • I really wish Overwatch was an mmo... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPRRupAM4DI#t=325 This is epic. They even got their own cyberpunk Batman/Punisher combo.​​
  • I'd rather keep adv from parry than have this new block. Great if you like it, but I don't think every Savage should be switched to it. It's one thing to rework an entire powerset, and another one to completely replace a power with something different. And, again, making it a power choice costs nothing since it's not a…
  • Can we get a choice between Parry and Antagonise block powers for the Savage AT? Antagonise is an OK block power, but I'd rather keep using Parry, besides the AT was sold with Parry and this new block plays different. Don't replace powers completely on Premium ATs with something entirely different, leave it as a player's…
  • And children in Africa are starving...​​
  • Cosmics shouldn't be made lair bosses. Lair bosses should be their own thing. Open world bosses are open world bosses. They also should be hard. Period when they weren't was more an unintended side effect of the power creep than anything else. Hopefully lairs is what's being updated next.​​
  • Conan looks like he was flayed.​​
  • There never was any consistent style for warriors in these comics. Some were half-naked, some were clad in full armor. Even in issues that were happening in the same winter region.​​
  • If you are talking about costumes saved on your character, then they can't be deleted. You can't free a costume slot. You can only edit it or replace with another costume. It always was that way. No changes were made. If you are talking about costume saves you load into tailor, then they still are, and always were, in your…
  • If Red Sonja was at least behaving like a vixen using her looks, then I'd say that scalemail bikini fits her better. Except her characterisation and her look never really were in the same ballpark. Drawn as a cheesecake in suggestive poses, but talking and behaving as if she was about to drive you with her sword just…
  • Red Sonja switched her favorite outfit designer from Frank Frazetta to Larry Elmore. That's about it.​​
  • There's no difference. I think the material is missing. But emblems are generally a P.O.S. in the game. They have the same mapping for males and females, except equivalent for male is max possible volume of breasts on females, so they end distorted on anything but breasts slider set to max. Good job.​​
  • Hexslinger sounds like a Caliburn-inspired AT.​​
  • Yeah, I know. Comic books =/= anything approaching realism. Though it's considerably easier to fire a tiny piece of lead at high velocities than to do so with a crossbow bolt. Modern adapter devices for firing nets and bolts from rifles are even more clunky and big than a small crossbow. And bullets are useless for staking…
  • I know what you're saying, and I know how crossbow works, but even a modern recurve and synthetic crossbows with pulleys aren't even as powerful as standard issue handguns. Pulling steel shafts through a car door is basically an upper level of what crossbow can, but a baseline off which it starts for a combat handgun or a…
  • Still a whimp compared to a firearm. Looks good only for stabbing other vampires with wooden stakes, I suppose.​​
  • She was using claws, and gloves on the new costume are fingerless anyway. Kinda pointless to carry a weapon that weak when you're a vampire. Now, if she was using a pair of .50 AE or something .50 BMG... That would be fun. Or more Tomb Raider. But if you do an upgrade, at least upgrade to the best.​​
  • There isn't a lot in this costume to scream "vampire" (not like it was a lot of it in the old one, unless she was drawn with her fangs showing), but there's a lot of screaming "Dynamite Press pulling some more publicity with redesigns and maybe draw some readers since their numbers at Diamond shipping lists weren't that…
  • Totally zero care about Red Sonja, but new Vampirella is simply them changing direction of the book. Like this new cover: ​​
  • I'd rather have an option as a power advantage to have this visual effect replaced by some particlle effect.​​
  • TBH... "Heard about him" is the best I can tell. I heard the name before, but can't recall anything written by him. Either it was unremarkable, or I remember him only from some reading about the industry. Fun part is, if you take their previous game and CO later content including comic issues in comparison, looks like…
  • John Layman. Has in his portfolio writing for the Big Two, Image, IDW, Dark Horse.​​
  • Heh, that Champions Online had a very bad writer initially and couldn't follow its own source material to save its life is known since a long time. Fortunately it did change later since adventure packs, comic issues, and newer events like Mechanon's. Later events and addons are more evenly mixed. Ironically, the person who…
  • A Weaboo and a Blackredder in the same person. Fan-voted, so bonus points for being a fanfic as well. Can't beat it, really. Blackred will never die.​​
  • The game has plots in line with existing comic books. Mainstream Marvel run ain't all gritty. Daredevil is a specific show made for adult audience. This game is not. It's T-rated. Also, it simply wasn't made for playing a maniac. Hence no villain or rogue factions. Snyder is a bad person to look up to. He'd probably…
  • If a choice in of gear in a video game offers you no mechanical benefits it's not really a choice. The reward should be always proportional to effort. Heroic gear is simply a pile of crap compared to effort when same or only slightly bigger amount of effort can yield you a better gear. It's not like gear in this game has…
  • It wasn't. It was an absurd low pricing for a player with a more than one character, but it was just right for a starter. And it was rendered a starter gear when better sets appeared whether Cryptic wants to admit it or not. In the end the change effectively removed heroic gear from the game - an amount of effort required…
  • Yeah, back when it started it was a must until somewhere mid-eighties. I can't recall an exact date it changed and a number of colors CMYK palette allowed before, when color masters were made by hand on films, but it was extremely limited until computers started appearing in print. Villains had to be separated from heroes…
  • The most common way was that that most often heroes wore primary colors while villains used secondary colors. Deviations from this scheme weren't very common till late eighties, and even then mostly when it was required by the theme, like Green Lantern had to be green, and Cpt Cold had to be blue-ish. Apocalypse and…
  • Not my toon, but a CO toon nonetheless. This was supposed to be a generic action pose. Before I started adding things just because reasons.​​
  • There simply isn't anything to understand. "if checklist 1 to 49 doesn't work then refer to 50" is the most hilariously lawyerish way of defining anything and you can't be upset for it not being taken seriously. Seriously, if you need something that sounds like a biased legal clause for a definition to work then the…
  • Here I am really, REALLY tempted to draw the most archetypical cape imaginable, make him do the most archetypical boy scout rescues ever... And then having him to deny being a hero at every possible occasion. And NOBODY acknowledging him in-universe. I think "Not-A-Hero-Man" for a character name and "Not A Superhero Strip"…
