Getting Skimpier all the TimeApril 26, 2009
Way back when Age of Conan was released I didn’t really feel any pull to play it. Not because it had skimpily-dressed women chars, that doesn’t bother me, simply because I have no sense of the setting and the timing was bad for me starting a new game since I had LotRO and was heavily anticipating WAR’s release and trying to save myself for that (more fool me, eh?). That didn’t stop us relentlessly teasing our male friends that were playing about all the breasts in the game, and breast powahhh!!
So now after a while of grinding in LotRO, WAR’s hiatus for me (I play a little, but am really treading water there until something more interesting happens), and a spell in Vanguard, we decided to test out Age of Conan and I’m quite enjoying it. I have a Bear Shaman and a Herald of Xotli. Playing the Herald more in the group as it’s the right level, but I might play some of the Shaman today. There’s 3 women playing this time around and something unpredictable is happening… we’re all trying to get our clothing as skimpy as possible. When Milinia announced she had a see-through bikini, we demanded to see it and were quite impressed! My herald had a robe for the longest time possible, but yesterday got a croc-skin top with barely any side to it, it was my best moment in the game so far!
So, what Age of Conan really needs, is cosmetic clothing. Seriously. And for the record, we’re now very close to level 20 so will see if the content goes downhill from hereon in. Am impressed with the nighttime/daytime questing split and the look of the game. Will soon see if it captures our attention enough to pay for a month of play though…
