    Haha interesting how they sorted out the issue with weapons on the back. A magical ring holding them. :)

    It’s been there in the first gameplay trailer as well so it’s nothing new. People are just blind.

    Didn’t see that one. I was referring generally to similar games where the weapons just hang in the air.

    The first A2 screenshot looks very plastic-y and cyborg-like. Platinum has done a great job with the visuals so far.

    Plot twist – those rings are the halos from Bayonetta.

    This game’s looking too good. That robot booty is enticing.

    That is a pretty boss thing to write in your yearbook. A Bond villain in the making.

    Dragon Age origins was notorious for that.

    I understand it is likely impossible to fix but it has always bothered me that you can’t see equipment and weapons on your characters.

    It is also a really pain to develop a believable system hehe. Especially for RPGs where you are used to bring tons and tons of loot with you.
    Would you like to carry a two handed sword in your hand (like it historically was) as it is impossible to unsheathe it from your back? :) Or carry a horse with you with a wagon full of weapons? :D
    It is always the fun vs reality. Something that Kingdom Come will battle quite a lot as they are focusing on the reality more while still maintaining RPG elements. And that brings some limits to the game. But will it be fun? We shall see.

    Nicely problematic, but I’m still hoping for a bit more variety with the cast.

    Hoping for an old brusier/tank type guy like Papa Nier or a weirdo looking thing like Emil.

    Young, androgenous, white haired, dressed in black for the entire cast isn’t very interesting.

    This game’s character designs has not been put to the Anita Sarkeesian test yet.

    Put your cocks away boys.
