APB comes equipped extensive character creation tools. This means you can create characters of all shapes and sizes. Or, you can in theory. In practice, there’s an odd quirk.

Doesn't sound like much of a problem to me. I doubt that anybody would ever want to be fat if there was a easy way to lose weight.

at least for most people, don't over eat or live on garbage.

The cheapest food is also the least healthy.

Parapraxis3088d ago (Edited 3088d ago )

And when the majority of food that is affordable is also considered "junk"...what then?

ER-AM3088d ago (Edited 3088d ago )

Granted, eating healthier will make staying at a healthy weight easier, it also has a lot to do with a lack of physical activity. You can eat somewhat healthily, but if you sit on your ass all day, you're going to pick up some extra baggage.

And there is a simple way to lose weigh: Eat less, move around more. All it costs is discipline and effort.

But that's not getting ignoring the whole western world's obsession with being underweight.

EDIT: @ Crusade. You're not entirely correct on that one. You can get healthy food for fairly cheap, it's just you have to make something out of it. For example most produce, not the certified organic stuff, is pretty cheap. Now it may be cheap but you have to make something out of it. That compared to $1 cheeseburgers at McDonald's, the fresh food loses out a lot of the time, especially when people commute 2-3 hours a day, if not one way.

I've had extremely fast metabolism my whole life so I've never had to worry about my eating habits. It's pretty funny that women in the game can't get as fat as the guys can, considering it's way easier for men to lose weight than women. Which infuriates a lot of women I know.

@ ER-AM bubbles up for the helpful comment

Dude, healthy food is cheap. You can get two heads of broccoli for a buck. 5 pound bag of carrots for a buck. Two pounds of peas for a buck. Seriously, think (or actually shop at a grocery store instead of McDonalds) before you write something.

boodybandit3088d ago

Sorry but have you ever heard of a grocery store?
I live on complex carbs, lean protein and healthy fats.
Buying in bulk and cooking for yourself is not only cheap but it's the only way to make sure you eat healthy.

Metabolism usually doesn't start slowing down until you hit your 30's. Moving is very important but eating healthy is key. No matter how much you exercise not eating right will eventually cause health problems.

You can keep your metabolism high by eating several small meals a day.

Also, for what ever reason, I think its more socially acceptable for men to be over weight than women. Im not condoning this, but its in odd thing to consider. Im yet to see a girl wearing a "No Fad-Dudes" shirt. However, that would be pretty funny.

Most of the reviews are saying it's pretty repetitive. I doubt it'll take more than 2-3 months for it to drop to $20-30.

the game just can't handle all the jigglin'

Bubbles for making me laugh! ;)

Hehe, yeah. But seriously, it probably has to do with animations. There is a big difference between the walking cycle of a slim and a fat woman, much bigger than between those of a fat and a slim man. A lot of ugly polygon intersection would occur, I think, if they used the same animations on both a fat and slim woman. And creating new animations for just that?
