    Did anyone notice the bit about races hinted at having equal base stats? [quote] It's like, bam. I'm going to be a robot. And there's nothing about being a robot that's going to play any different from the other two.[/quote] I'm not sure how I feel about that. I was hoping for something like WoW where you have varying base stats and perhaps a racial ability. For instance, Exo, some kind of tazer/stun ability. Humans, scavenge. Awoken, perhaps confuse an enemy. Teleport a short distance? Be better at crafting. --- I'm gonna go off on one about skills as well. Will we see our skills as a set number? I think it'd be cool for us to 'feel' our character get better at something without actually seeing a set number increase.

      [quote][b]Chris Barrett:[/b] When we were talking about how that process would work and the choices the players would have, we knew if we gave somebody a choice and then betrayed that choice later down the road, that would be bad. We wanted players to just go on gut. What do they like the look of? What sounds cool to them? And not betray that in any way. We don't want to make something where a character plays very differently, or isn't what they thought what they were getting. That tied in to that process. We want to give people whatever they want to play in that world and not have any negative side effects. [b]Joe Staten:[/b] Making it up front and quick and largely emotional, and nothing that's going to, later down the line, make you feel like you made the wrong choice. You're going to make this gut emotional choice: 'I'm going to look at that robot and I'm going to look at that more exotic space elf and I'm going to look at that human and I like... robot.' It's like, bam. I'm going to be a robot. And there's nothing about being a robot that's going to play any different from the other two. We want to make it immediate and quick and gut, for sure when it comes to race, and then make sure we don't screw you down the line. [b]Chris Barrett:[/b] We didn't want to give a plus eight bonus or whatever it is, that people are going to be like, 'Oh, I made the wrong choice! I've got to start over.' That always sucks.[/quote]Yeah, that's enough confirmation for me, Races don't have an impact on gameplay.

        • [quote][b]I've got a funny feeling fans will bug you about Tiger Man for a long time, and you may have shot yourselves in the foot by even mentioning him.[/b] Joe Staten: Then Tiger Man has served his purpose. He has become the bullet shield. That's his role. He is brave and noble and strong and wise.[/quote]No, I refuse to allow our savior to be used in such a way!

          • Good stuff, OP. It was a very good read, from a very good source. Lots of interesting information in there. I specifically liked the discussion over the storyline and how they touched on mixing a fixed narrative vs player-created stories. Character creation also is always a [i]huge[/i] part of the game for me (I may just be spoiled by The Elder Scrolls, so the bar is set pretty high in terms of character creation...), so I was very happy with the bit of enlightenment that they gave us in that regard. Good to go.

            • Well this will help narrow down or stop the need for stats or character traits on the classes.
