*whispers* now only gears needs to support them...
I'd love to see my avatar get chainsawed. Really, i would...
to see my avatar CHAINSAW someone else. lol. I think custom characters are the reason I enjoyed Saints Row 1/2 so much.
always did enjoy playing dress up.
Give them a break the Jacksons had to do something.
Yea you would think a game like gears 2 would have already done this.
but it might look a bit odd with the clash of graphical styles
Yeah, I hope they don't mean in the actual cars because that will just look stupid.
Yea I'm not sure how this is going to work in a racing game.
oh wait, were talking about those avatars??? yikes! good luck with that.
finally something 2 do with those useless a$$ Avatars
Yea, I want to see avatars in every game.
I don't know how I feel about this idea
"You will have a tiny mirror-mounted model of your own NXE Avatar - visible in the game’s hyper-detailed c0ckpit view - which swings around realistically as you chuck your car into turns." Wow, that sounds utterly lame. What a complete waste of time and proves avatars are as worthless as ever and difficult to integrate into games. Just look at the picture in the story and that is probably what it will look like. It's actually making the game uglier by having it.
1 vs 100 sounds like it's making great use of the avatars though.
Soda: Touche! That is a great point. I guess avatars do have a use afterall. I think if they keep them within the context of Live then it's not too bad.
what would you want the avatar to do in this game? it is a rather inventive use of it I think
Does anyone here read more than just the title of the story? No, it's not custom avatar drivers. FFS...
Nope. Most of them just come here to b!tch and whine. Having an avatar model in your rear-view mirror certainly sounds game breaking to me ;)
this site, it says "You will have a tiny mirror-mounted model of your own NXE Avatar" ffs, not driving the bloody car, just a mount, READ IT
i guess if you arent getting any games youll be happy for anything. its like feeding a starving country with a handfull of crackers. hey micromorons you want regular or butter flavor!
huh? wasn't this about dirt and the avatars?
Yea it does seem worthless, but it's little details like this that make the developer seem like their going an extra mile.
I don't think this is a good idea. The avatars should be used in games but I think it should be kept to the Xbox live titles or some casual stuff. The mix of styles doesn't work.
that would actually disable this feature.. this concept is stupid
Aww you don't want to use whats free?
Yea because the graphical style of avatars in a sick ass game like DiRT 2 doesn't fit right.
Will there be a way to turn it off?
Yea as a matter of fact you can block it from appearing in the game.
Thats actually pretty neat lol, i hope its like an option to turn on and off or like when you choose whether you are female or male you have the option for Avatar.
A really nice idea & very Innovative, for sure! I love it!
